Rodrigo Ely will try to get some minutes in Spain as he will play until the end of the season for La Liga’s Deportivo Alavés.

The Brazilian center back was impressive during Sinisa Mihajlovic’s pre-season in the Milan summer of 2015 but ultimately failed to break into the Rossoneri’s starting XI and didn’t play a single minute in Serie A or Coppa Italia this season with boss Vincenzo Montella in charge.

Crotone also reportedly wanted him but as confirmed by Alavés yesterday and by Milan on this January deadline day, Ely has signed with the club from Álava.

“Milan announces to have agreed terms with Deportivo Alavés for the transfer of Ely on a loan deal until 30th June 2017,” a statement reads on Milan’s website, confirming the exit of the 23-year-old.

Comment:to be honest as a Milanisti i would like us tp sign Rodrigo Caio to partner Romagnoli after Paletta


Galliani is looking to tie up a deal for Santon…why on earth? He’s clearly not good enough and we still have 4 fullbacks in the squad with de Sciglio out.

We’re in a dire state in the market, Chinese sale or not we’ll be better off in the summer, this limbo is ruining our season.

If the sale doesn’t go through we desperately need a project in place, it’ll take a few more years again to get going but this Berlusconi-Galliani model is horrible.


Comment:Yh Rodrigo caio is one of the upcoming defenders I like a lot…Milan must get him.watched him during the Olympics.


Comment: we have rb; abate/calabra lb:antonelli/vangioni cb:zapata/palleta/roma/gomez. upfront LW:suso/honda RW;deulofeu/ocampus
mfs:kuco/sosa,loca/bertolacci,pisalic/matias/poli. i just hope the injuries stop


And Givanni Simeone completed move to Genoa. He is set to be a great striker. But I wonder why he does not go in Atletico


@ Ink . . Probably because Diego won’t be there for long . . ?


Comment: is montella saying anything about trying new strategies? am not sure this defense should be left as it is cos we have just two players for each position after the injuries and loaning.


🙂 OK !
