Jackson Martinez is ‘one step away’ from becoming a new Milan player.
Adriano Galliani has returned to Italy and it looks like he is back having accomplished what he went for as an agreement with Porto and with Martinez is believed to have been reached.
Milan will pay Jackson’s €35 million buy-out clause and the player will most likely get a 4-year deal. Martinez has an offer from the Premier League (from Manchester City reportedly) that is more lucrative than the one he has from Milan but he seems to have chosen the red and black of the Diavolo.
“We’re there now,” the agent of the 28-year-old Colombian striker, Luiz Henrique Pompeo, told Calciomercato.com. “We are very close to concluding a deal with Milan and there’s a very good chance it will be finalized. We hope to give the announcement tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.
“He’d make up a dream partnership with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.” The arrival of Martinez, which now seems likely, doesn’t of course exclude a move for Ibra and updates are expected in the next days.
Forza Milan we are just starting
Is this a dream?
Now we can do a 4-4-2
EL sha V.ginkel Kondogbia Suso
CRAZY DEFENDERS GO HERE —————————————————————————
Love your defense. 🙂
As long as nothing happens to El Shaa as players with his commitment is rare these days, i welcome both Jackson and Ibra. We need players like Jackson, and we need MEN/PROFESSIONALS, like Ibra, he played with our senators, he knows what Milan is about and will be precious for our younger players. But like i said, as long as nothing happens to El Shaa. Or Niang, i believe in both of them and their success in Milan, especially El Shaa.
This is great news!I hope kondogbia and soriano will be next,so we can focus in CBs and have a wonderful summer 🙂
Otamendi shuld b brought in to shore up de defence. Love to c him defend
Wow Looks like the bleak days of washed up former stars and free transfers are over What makes this even more pleasing is the fact he turned down a move to Manchester Citys millions and instead embraced prestige and class and a chance to join a truly great club with almost unparalleled history and become part of a new era of success, to me it shows his heart and desire to become a champion and not just crazy rich at an ignorant club like Manchester City and all those other oil rich “big clubs” who’ve achieved nothing and hopefully never… Read more »
Silva would agree to come back in a heartbeat. Psg won’t let him go though
I agree I think he’d love to come back but like you said PSG would never allow it not like the idiots who sold him in the first place
TRAITOR! YOU SHOULD BE THROWN OUT OF MILANISTA FOR YOUR TREASON! THE ONLY CENTER BACK WE WILL EVER NEED IS THE GREAT DANIELE BONERA!!!!
FORZA BONERA! FORGIVE THIS MAN DEAR LORD
all Hail Lord Bornerror
Forgive me my sins!!
i can’t say anything….but this is still a dream
Please, please, pleeease don’t forget about the defence Galliani. Martines is probably (haven’t seen that him much) a wonderful signing, but without a solid defence and a better midfield, I’m afraid it won’t make much of a difference.
But great start though!
With this signing, we are well on our way. This will be a proof statement finally to all the talk and empty promises made over the several years of decline we just lived thru. Forza milan!!
Am i dreaming?
Moga aja benar bro
Kondogbia is apparently a done deal and will be done by the end of the weekend. Ibra will take more time I think. Now for the defense. Apparently we have made a formal offer for Godin which wouldn’t be a bad signing.
I heard a rumor linking Matt Hummels to us but he seems very loyal to dortmund
For people who are yelling out for SES, Suso seems to be of better value that him, is it because he’s Italian? The kid has so much to learn, how to use his left foot, how to swap positions, how to be less direct. For a 4-3-1-2 with zlatan definitely slightly behind JM we’re either finishing 2nd or winning the scudetto. But on a 4-3-3 with JM on the wings, we can be anticipating the worst signing of seria.A. Menez will offer more than el-sha if he stays.
El shaa IS of better value than suso though. WE have all seen what he can do.
I don’t know why but I rather get Zlatan and bring back Niang than buy J. Martinez.
I feel like 433 fits us better with
El sharaawy- zlatan-Niang/Honda/Suso/Cerci
Van ginkel/montolivo- Kondogbia- jack/suso
With menez in trade with kondogbia
and maybe a new creative midfielder just worried where a 442 leaves el sharaawy and Niang with J. Martinez and zlatan up top.
4 players for one position is a bit much
4??? Many more are there for that position like mastour, cerci etc but I would rather go with 4-4-2 that would be best even if de Jong leaves….
I see Cerci leaving to be honest unless immobile joins or he impresses mihajlovic
In an ideal world which would you guys prefer
Kondogbia or Veratti??
I think kondogbia as its increasingly more likely De Jong is departing and he seems to me to be a perfect if I dare say even better replacement he’s also only 22 years old and already plays like a younger Yaya Teora (excuse the spelling!)
Overall either of the two would be fantastic
In my ideal world I see kondogbia and verrati!
This is a ghreat first purchase, as it shows other clubs and players that we are finally aiming for the top. A lot of younger players should reasonably expect lots of champions league football over a 3-4 year contract, even if next season is one without it. Still, with 3-4 more purchases as good as this one, at the right positions, we are gunning for the Scudetto next season, challenging Juve along with Roma, Lazio and maybe Inter if they also get their stuff under control. Moreover, it may convince De Jong to extend his contract and Mexes to accept… Read more »
I am so happy to know that Bonera has been shown the door. And the good news doesn’t stop there. Juventus are planning to offer him a contract. Can’t get better, can it?
agree. ….the past season was really awfull. i remember how montella and some other coaches looked down on us. i wonder how their reaction when they see these news recently
Until this deal is made official,i will never be excited. I’ve been heartbrocken for several years..
Same here my friend. I read a statement from Galliani about the negotiations being difficult because of interest from Arsenal, Man United and other clubs. I hope he is holding his poker face by making such statements.
Yes i read it too…
It feels a bit too much with both Martinez and Ibra…what about our other players? If i had to choose id take Ibra before Martinez because he would be great sharing his experience to the younger players. But with both of them, we will have Menez, Cerci, El Shaa, Suso and Honda, a lot of players for 2/3 roles… @Hasowayne, where are you, what do you think?
I’m here bro, still trying to figure out how all of these will work out.. Ibra and Jackson Martinez… I think Mihajlovic has got his hands too full. I’m sure Menez and maybe Cerci would leave anyway, Cerci sure won’t like to stay on the bench and Menez has been rumored to be leaving for Monaco. Honda should be deployed to his natural role where he scored two goals against Iraq today and El Sharawwy I believe can play as a Left Mid fielder.. Kondogbia is already a Milan player from what I see but strangely, I haven’t been hearing… Read more »
Too much??? We are Milan, we are supposed to be competing with Barca, Madrid, Bayern, etc… (no offense)
A 442 could accommodate most of these players…for example, J.Mart and Ibra up top with SES and Menez on the wings…or Niang/Cerci/Suso if Menez leaves…or perhaps Miha will give Hachim a chance….either way, J.Mart and Ibra bring something to the table that no one currently on our squad can bring.
Thats not what i mean with too much, you misunderstood me… but anyways i fear for the development of El shaa and possibly niang. You wont get the most of them in a 4-4-2, El Shaa is a great finisher. I think he can do well in a 4-3-1-2 though, either as the trequartista or as a mezz’ala… Dont know, i just dont want to lose a player like him, we have lost too many talents lately. We have to take care of them and make them flourish.
I understand your concern for SES, and your right that a 442 isnt ideal for him, but we must put the club ahead of any one player… I have confidence in SES, he may have to make some adjustments, but even with J.Mart and Ibra SES should be able to establish a starting spot. I would certainly start him over Menez… Actually, I wouldnt mind if we got rid of Menez and Cerci to make room for SES, Niang, Suso, Hachim, and Di Molfetta. And also let Pazzini go since Niang and SES can both play striker. Basically im thinking… Read more »
El sha and niang can be moved to left mid and right mid respectively. With cerci and suso coming off the bench on the right and Menez on thr left. Bonaventure and van ginkel if he stays in the middle and then we need to worry about our defense. That’s a scary team right there. Or they can do a 4 5 1 with Ibra and el sha sitting behind Martinez. You can never have too many good players bro
Exactly why I fear for ses. I wouldn’t mind menez leaving as he would be worth a decent amount after the season. I know Monaco was interested I figured we would use menez in the deal for kondogbia but I haven’t read anything. I know menez is out for a bit with back surgery
I read that Menez would be out for three weeks.
A wonderful idea, Menez out, Kondogbia in.
LOOK MILAN ARE ABOUT TO BUY SOMEONE WORTH 35 MIL WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME ANY SAW THAT ….FORZA MILAN
Lacazette or Martinez with ibra just wondering ur guys thoughts who would partner Ibra better of the two.
I think Martinez and Ibra would be a perfect partnership as the very best players always find a way to play together and there’s not much better around than those two
Sorry, but it’s funny to see people get excited. Now as Galliani is having the recourses, then he can do his work as we know from his prime time.
Other than that, about Zlatan coming. That would be risky, it smells just like Sheva/Kaka as when they did a comeback. Yeah, Zlatan is still doing it good, but he is already 33 and giving him a 3yr contract 7m € per year might be a bad idea as he had a turbulent last season.
Kaka wasn’t really bad when he came back. He was actually pretty good considering his age. I haven’t seen Sheva here complaining recently. Go figure
You are comparing apples and oranges. Shevchenko and Kaka forced an exit from Chelsea and Madrid because they sucked at those clubs. Ibrahimovic has been at the top of his game for the most part since 2010. I think this is good for Milan as the fans didn’t want him to leave in 2012. I hope he does well and retires at Milan.
I was just responding to the original post saying it would be risky to bring him back due to his age
Man utd makes late bid for martinez! Galliani “the deal would be too difficult,there are so many clubs chasing him and he has to decide which one” since monday till now we can’t strike a deal and we boast we got the cash to spend.
Anyway lets wait and see Galliani’s magic.
I haven’t read that anywhere lol
Go to “daily milan news”
Plan Bee Aiming back to elite club in one year. With the purchase Martinez, following by Zlatan an other player. I think this is good movement by Milan, bring word class player, then mix with young player to share experience and forge the champion mentality. Hope dream come true, with recent issue where Milan want to buy J. Martinez, Zlatan and Kondogbia, then Milan ready to compete in serie A. My last dream is come back of T. Silva, and we are ready for new season. With this resources I believe Galliani will make a great strike in transfer market.… Read more »
What about lacazette n Martinez together that would be good too soo much younger than ibra pluss less salaries idk just a suggestion
from getting essien on a free transfer to buying out jackson martinez for 35 million .. we are moving up in life .. lets end juve’s era of easy champions FORZA MILAN
great news!! great team!!!
Zlatan is there to keep the team on their commitment and behavior.
Something that montolivo cannot do. Instead of keeping the team on shape, montolivo become the leader of low performing players, protesting for playing time. The reason is that he also badly performed. We will never see this team win major thropy with montolivo as Captain.
DE JONG IS THE BEST CAPTAIN AND WE ARE READY TO LOOSE HIM FOR FREE AND LET JUVE OR UNITED CATCH HIM AND YOU RE SPEAKING ABOUT IBRA WHO S NOT AT MILAN THIS SPECIFIC PERIOD OF TIME?
Great new i hope this come 2ru, top club warning milan is coming back Forza milano!!!!!!!
why is everyone obsessed with ses? i guess if he is good, the coach will play him
I’m so happy with what is happening right now….cos I can’t believe it….pls hw much is kondogbia?……happy to see martinez up front and ibrahimovic…FORZAMILANO ……..follow me on twitter @myhamson
The suspense is killing me…lol. I’ve been checking the news every hour. Wow this is exciting. I’m not going to check any news till Sunday, hopefully I see good news. FORZA MILAN!
Lol…i check mine every 30min..:)
lets wait and see what will happen , because i dont belief in kojak. Hope u didnt foeget mister x i.e ganso , hamsik and fabregas
Comment:ac milan is back from the dead,acmiloan is dead because we now have a plan bee,i can smell the scudetto
Our team is almost good with attackers …but DM and defence is the problem we got to find replacement for Essien and Muntari with someone like xhaka or kondogbia and for defence we must go for Ogbonna if the partnership is going to be Paletta /Rami/Alex and start bringing the youth for some minutes to get used to the league then we ship out all dead wood then play the youth,forza milan
In every sector there should have a good mix of young & experience players so that we can ptoduce leader for next decade.
Forward: Should use SES & Niang with Martinez & Ibra/?
Midfield: should use Suso, Kongdobia, Soriano/Baselli, Mauri with NDJ, Jack, Monti
Defends: Darmian, De Sciglio, Ely , Savic should be used with Antonelli, Abate, Hummels, Miranda, Palleta.
Goalie: Perin with Lopez & Abiati
i suggest if milan can sign kondogbia and nabil fakir of lyon and a good solid cb. Im ok
Comment:milan is back 4rm d dead,acmiloan is buried
el sha j.martinez Menez
jack, dejong , ginkel/kondogbia
mds rami miranda abate
Looks like a young fresh milan too me with zlatan things can get anchieved, bonera out.
