Milan reach a deal with Empoli over J. Mauri’s loan move, Montella to try Sosa as a regista if no one arrives?

Jose Mauri is likely to leave – on a dry loan – while Jose Sosa could occupy Riccardo Montolivo’s role if Milan fail in bringing a regista in the next days.

After last week’s report that Jose Mauri is close to joining Empoli on a loan deal with option to buy, Milannews.it and Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport Italia are now reporting a different formula.

Milan had meetings with Empoli and with Mauri’s agent today at Casa Milan and it’s reported that the player has now given his okay to joining the squad of Giovanni Martusciello although personal terms still need to be agreed. If he finds an understanding with Empoli, he’ll join them on a one-year dry loan deal.

Adriano Galliani said that ‘if no one leaves then no one will come’, but with Mauri’s expected exit it’s possible that Milan will try to sign another midfielder. However, Sky’s Di Stefano claims that if the Rossoneri don’t get a regista (midfielder in front of the defense), then Jose Sosa could be tried there.

Pasalic arrived but he’s not a regista either while Sosa is accustomed to playing in a more advanced role. If no one comes, Montella will try to find a vice-Montolivo (replacement?) from within the squad.

Glad to hear its a dry loan for Mauri. As far as Montolivo goes, he is a huge problem. I’m glad Montella has recognized it and has been vocal about it. I know Monty is a great locker room guy but honestly he shouldn’t be wearing the C.

Finding a regista from in the squad? If we’re going to be experimenting. Try Honda please. Unfortunately he’s on international duty so can’t be tested in the friendly. Sosa too, fine. Those are the only two capable of adapting to it in my eyes. Since berto is out for a bit. And also, locatelli seems to be way out of favor So I assume he’s the last resort for montella. He must not be ready in his eyes.

We should just rid ourselves of Montolivo.. He might be great elsewhere but not in a Milan jersey.

Milan is after Sao paolo defender Rodrigo Caio. That guy is very good if we can get him. Although the most important signing will be a midfielder but if we can get caio it will be a big plus. we need real competition in our central defence. players like verghara,palletta,zapata should leave. palletta can’t improve more than he’s presently playing. Players like gomez, caio, and romagnioli will definitely improve. The biggest problem still remains solving montolivo issue!!!!!

Can’t Milan just cash in on Honda and Lopez before they go for free? It’s possible that Lopez will play – except Donna gets injured. Honda doesn’t really fit in.

Playing with 10 men is better than playing with montolivo…..the guy is not even worthy of selling hotdogs in the stands

It’s a very good move actually for all the parties involved. Good luck to Mauri.

Galliani for all his failings can close good deals on the last days and hours of the transfer market. Let’s see if he can bring in another midfielder. We really need it.

At this point a player like Schweinsteiger would be a great improvement. If only!

Q: Sosa must replace Monti, but Sosa is not a regista, how does one solve such an enigma? A: Change formation. —-Kucka—-Locca—- Suso—-Sosa—-Niang ———Bacca——— attacking subs:Jack, Pasalic, Lapa. or, for those who still believe in Jack, or dont think Locca is ready: Suso–Kucka–Sosa–Jack ——-Bacca–Niang—— There are many possibilities that don’t involve Monti, Poli, Berto, or a 3 man midfield…. A good coach should recognize by now that we don’t have the right personnel for a 3 man midfield….our squad doesn’t contain a true regista like Pirlo, or a true CDM like NDJ…. Changing formation to suit our strengths should be… Read more »

Montolivo is such a jerk, he has no impact on the team, cannot coordinate the team as a captain.

De Jong is very likely to be transferred from USA, I think we should get him back. At least he can protect the backline

How Galliani can be so stupid that he is willing to loan our teams best prospect to another club whit giwing then option to buy him at the end of this season! This move has all the makings of Galliani”s really poor knowledge of today”s football world, because Tassotti was put in a place to control our prospect develodment and follow thous players who we are loaning to other club”s and preventing that thous cases like Saponara”s saga does not happen any more, but now that Tassitti is gone our really stupid leader Galliani is putting us in thous really… Read more »
