The President of the Argentine club believes Milan have made an important signing by getting Gustavo Gomez and says Fiorentina and EPL clubs wanted him.

After the visa situation has been resolved, new signing Gustavo Gomez trained with Milan today (Friday). The 22-year-old center back joined for a reported €8.5m from Argentina champions Club Atlético Lanús; and their President, Nicolas Russo thinks Milan did well to sign him.

“If Gomez is ready for the jump from Argentina to Milan? Without a doubt,” Russo said in an interview with Tuttomercatoweb. “Gustavo is an extraordinary player, very strong and certainly ready to face this new adventure. His main strengths? His aerial game and his challenges.

“Gomez has a winning mentality and will be Milan’s first choice defender for the next 10 years. Other teams were interested in him? Fiorentina and several Premier League clubs wanted him.”

Agree, no point in hyping him up, he looks like a decent player, but has to be tested. I have no expectations from him right now.

I have watched his clips on youtube. Looks like a decent signing, much better than mangala who can’t even do a sliding tackle and he cost Man C 40 million pounds. What is Galliani’s 20 million euros for bertolacci. So once again, G may not be the best but he is definitely not the worst.

Reading the previous comments and i agree with them, i wouldn’t wanna over hype him just yet, let’s see what he is made of, but i wanna feel optimistic since he is like the first signing ever since the signing of the take over (even though it was Berlu’s money that got him) and now i hope maybe we can get Badelj and Bentancur now and we can call it a wrap!

I really hope that he is wright and Gomes will become as good player then Thiago Silva was and will form a core for our team for many years to come! But i would sell Bacca in a heard beat if we can sign whit thous money real Madrid”s Isco who is one of the worlds best creative midfielders in the today”s football world and will form a core of our team foir many years to come! Second thing we must do is to sign world class central midfielder to our team and it now looks like Boca Juniors Rodrigo… Read more »

Hmmm… Three at the back? Are you sure? Seems a bit illogical considering our lack of options and budget…
