Andrea Bertolacci is a target of Milan but Fiorentina are also interested.

Sulley Muntari, Michael Essien and probably Nigel De Jong and Marco Van Ginkel are all expected to leave Milan at the end of the season, which means that the Rossoneri will have to be on the market looking to sign midfielders.

Milan have already set their eyes on Daniele Baselli of Atalanta but according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Diavolo have cooled off their interest a bit and have found a new target in Andrea Bertolacci who plays for Genoa.

The pink newspaper writes today that Adriano Galliani, who enjoyed Easter at Forte dei Marmi, spoke to his friend and Genoa President Enrico Preziosi over the weekend about the 24-year-old midfielder. Milan and Genoa have a very good club relationship and the last two deals they made involved M’Baye Niang (Genoa want to renew the loan and perhaps add a buy-out option) and Luca Antonelli (who Milan are obligated to buy at the end of the season for €4 million in 2 installments).

Fiorentina have also spoken to Genoa over Bertolacci as boss Vincenzo Montella, who is linked with the Milan job for next season to replace Inzaghi, values the midfielder. First, however, Genoa have to sort out the future of Bertolacci with Roma as they both own 50% per cent the Italy international.

Talks between Galliani and Preziosi are likely to continue in the future over Andrea who’s played 113 times in Serie A, although at the moment the priority is to figure out the future of the whole club.

Enough of Italian medicority, first resolve ownership, coach situation and after this is done then u go on shopping spree

Pa ibra

few months ago was destro & baselli… now immobile & bertolacci… maybe in the summer zaza & soriano. them desperate for this italian milan thing. better get us good italians then.

Chicopepsi

I bet galliani can go to south america or to africa and he will find better, younger, and cheaper players than bertolachi.. Same goes wifh destro and inmobile. Italians are way too racist

Lets talk about reality i dont kinda love all dis italian italian player which dey alwayz link with milan there are many players abroad instead stinking in italy buying scrap

Olalekan mojeed

They have already turn this club to a politicle club cos if nt for that why only italians always and they are all scrap they are players all over the continent not only italy what is problem of our board.dont we have a scout any more

I don’t understand why Milan don’t scout Argentina, Colombia, Brasil, Holland, Belgium and such countries which can provide good young cheap talents. Instead they are looking for average Italians in hope they’ll find new Pirlo, Ambro or Nesta. Joke!

I just read that Cavani’s agent opened up for a move to Milan based on the rumours of new ownership… If we bought him then it would be a Dream come true i wanted that guy in Milan since he played in Palermo but i will take those Words with a big pinch of salt this is not Football Manager after all

Why does everyone seem to be against the Italian thing! Last time I checked ac Milan were an Italian team and hence should have a core of Italian players. Anyone remember when Italy won the World Cup in 1982 nearly that whole team belonged to Juve! Germany now adopts a similar tactic and they just won the World Cup! England want to go the same way and have more english players! I’m all for foreign players IF they can contribute to the team but the core should always be Italian! And the reason players like Nesta, Pirlo and Ambro came… Read more »

1. ridiculous comment.

2. we already have an Italian core, now we just need quality players, regardless of where they are from.

3. If you know anything about our history you would know AC Milan was started by Englishmen, and in addition to Italians it owes much of its success to Holland, Brazil, West Africa, and Eastern Europe.

Dan

Don’t talk to me about history my friend ac milan has been part of my family since before the Rivera days! Yes it does owe its success to those countries but 1-2 players from the countries made up the team around the italians. My point is yes we need quality regardless where it is from but to buy young promising talent from outside italy which will take the place of young and potentially promising italians is bad for italian football.

For some reason now, every italian player who is being rumoured to us is being called mediocre… As far as i know Milan is an italian team. Check up the players instead of just bashing on them. You guys called both Antonelli and Paletta mediocre signings when they joined. Antonelli had been the most consistent left back in serie a for the last couple of years, and Paletta was the best centre back in serie a last season, and both of them have been good additions to our squad so far and seems to be growing with each game.
