New AC Milan signing Luiz Adriano claims that he will give his everything for the Italian Serie A club.
The striker has moved from Shakhtar Donetsk, where he spent the best part of the last eight years. Even though he is a Brazilian, Adriano resisted the option of moving to a top European club much earlier in his career. Now 28, he comes to Milan at the peak of his career. He has cost the Italian club around £ 8 million. His first job will be to score a lot of goals and help Milan reach their former glory days.
Former Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has stated that he is still unsure about a return to the San Siro as the manager of AC Milan.
The Italian recently revealed that he would be taking a sabbatical if he was sacked by Madrid, which turned out to be the case. After just two years as the manager of the Spanish club, Ancelotti was relieved of his duties after a poor campaign. He has been speaking about requiring an operation in order to correct a few aspects. Being free from a job will allow him to recuperate sufficiently.
The Mexican forward Javier Hernandez continues to struggle trying to secure consistent playing time as he was transferred over to Real Madrid but with the season reaching its last 2 months, it doesn’t really look like Hernandez is in the plans of Carlo Ancelotti who has utilized the Mexican player in less than 15 matches.
It looks like AC Milan is not going to have a permanent deal with Marco Van Ginkel the coming summer.
When Van Ginkel had been loaned out to San Siro last year, it was thought that the Holland player would stay long there.
The Rossoneri were supposed to be quite interested in investing in him, but, his stay there so far has been pretty troublesome. He has struggled to stay fit and as a result, has not played much.
He has just featured 4 times for Milan and the rhythm has been completely missing in his play in those games.
Ac.Milan is currently positioned at the 7th spot in the Italian League after having secured 25 points in the opening 16 league matches that have been played so far.
The team of Filippo Inzaghi kicked off their campaign in stellar form as they claimed successive victories over Lazio and Parma but after a number of draws and defeats, they have to settle with a position around the middle of the Serie A.
Marco Van Ginkel, the playmaker from Netherlands, is not in any kind of mood to end his loan spell at Milan early and return to his parent club Chelsea.
His representative had hinted that the 21-year old was unhappy to have been made to sit on the sidelines at San Siro on a regular basis and he might make the call to terminate his contract in January, but, Ginkel denied that while being in conversation with an Italian website last evening.
AC Milan have been enjoying a remarkable turnaround in fortunes since the start of the season. The club finished outside the top six last season in a very disappointing campaign. This led to the sacking of Clarence Seedorf and former striker Filippo Inzaghi was appointed in his place. The team started in brilliant fashion by winning the opening two matches. Even though their form has dipped in recent weeks, it has still been enough to keep them in contention for a top three finish. This will be enough to see them return to the Champions League next season.
AC Milan recently signed former Real Madrid goalkeeper Diego Lopez on a free transfer after the Spanish club decided to let the 32-year-old choose a club of this destination. Lopez was a former Real Madrid youth team product before going on to make his name at the likes of Villarreal and Sevilla. He returned to the Santiago Bernebeu in the 2013 season in order to act as a replacement for the injured Iker Casillas. His impressive form between the sticks made then manager Jose Mourinho make him as the first choice in the place of Casillas, who is considered as a club legend.
AC Milan wants to buy Pepe Reina, the shot stopper of Liverpool, but, they might not be able to secure that deal due to money issues.
Reina had featured for Napoli in the Italian top tier in the previous season and had been reasonably successful there. The Blues management wanted to have him on a permanent basis this summer, but, they had to change their mind eventually because of the transfer fee of 4 million Pounds demanded by Liverpool and the huge weekly salary of Reina.
Andrea Poli, the Italian playmaker, has said that Filippo Inzaghi would help the Rossoneri become a real force in Europe and all over the world.
Inzaghi has recently been given the charge of AC Milan after the sacking of Clarence Seedorf.
The 40-year Old had been the manager of the youth side of Milan since the last couple of years and he had done a good job there. Being impressed by that, the Milan board decided to get him involved with the senior team.
