WE NOW RETURN TO MILAN10 MUSINGS “Lewandowski on his possible successor at Bayern Munich: ‘We have to wait a few more years, it’s still too early. But there are also three or four really good strikers in the Bundesliga if we look to Frankfurt or Borussia.’” – Goal the best player in the world has spoken, and u know damn well he aint talking about milanisti’s darling jovic when mentioned frankfurt. i mean, how good do u have to be for current best st in the world to consider u a worthy successor. atl madrid are also reportedly targetting this… Read more »

Tonite on like Milan10 said: shame that talented player like silva have to go permanently but if it means that milan can get rebic permanently in return then im all for it. i just hope milan – frankfurt make a deal that will give those greedy bastards fiorentina the smallest amount of money for their 50% ownership of rebic. best of luck andre silva, lets go rebic You said it yourself, we got Rebic in exchange, we needed Rebic, and talent does not always translate to reality. The perfect example is Balotelli. It’s a damn shame that Paqueta and Silva… Read more »

lol i like ur Tonite on Like Milan10 said. nice touch, makes ur post all the more classy. but i digress. ur missing the point mate. my point is, milan keep letting young gems go cheaply, and thats major mistake. like i said, silva – rebic was supposed to be 2 yr swap without option to buy but since rebic played well last season milan wanted to buy him outright before they thought frankfurt would ask for > 25m. they thought they’d saved 25m but just yesterday i read that barca, atl madrid and even inter want silva and his… Read more »

Milan should have kept Locatelli and Cutrone. Both had played well and regularly enough for their age at the time. It’s so important for the motivation of our youth team and young players in our senior team to see that if they give their best they will be given a chance and not pushed out by some mediocre foreign player. When Milan bought Conti, I was concerned about pushing out one of our own in Calabria. Its vital to have as many homegrown players who love the club. They are more likely to stay at Milan when other big teams… Read more »

It is easy to judge about a decision that already made and took effect. No club want to lose a high prospect player like Silva or Paqueta. The problem is they don’t work well play with us and their value is keep on decreasing. We need to raise money to keep up with FFP, and buy player to stay competitive in sporting area, which is why we are on top now. You hv to consider that after 2 year loan, Silva will be back with one year contract left and that would put us on terrible position to renew a… Read more »

TONITE ON LIKE MILAN10 SAID “Milan10 3 years ago Im so glad that milan can maintain tradition of having multiple international players performing for their respective countries. Playing for and winning trophies with national teams are the greatest achievements for most players. Remember cr7’s joyous celebration in euro 16? Regarding andre silva (or andriy silva, like my mate imadala said), he has scored 5 goals in official matches since he became rossonero, 6 if we count a goal he scored 3 days before joining milan. Mind u, there’re very few official matches to play in between june – august. Im… Read more »
