Am not commenting on this issue but on the upcoming January transfer business. Milan should for now forget about buying or loaning any younger player.
What we need now is a player or players who through his/their experience can bring the best out of the younger players we have already
Milan should go for Ibrahimovic , Rakitic and modric so with their quality they can add something of great value to our team
