AC Milan Wants To Buy Reina


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.

AC Milan is also not likely to pay Reina such a big weekly salary and thus, it doesn’t seem that the 31-year old Spaniard would make his way to San Siro.

Milan, whose financial condition is not that strong at the moment, is trying to sign players only on loan this summer.
They might make one or two low-priced permanent signings as well, but, mostly, they are looking to borrow the players for the time being. They are also willing to offload one of their biggest superstars Mario Balotelli.

Balotelli had been linked to a move to Anfield after being praised by the Reds boss Brendan Rodgers ahead of the pre-season friendly match between Milan and Liverpool, but, in one of his recent interviews, Rodgers made it clear that he was not in the race to buy the Italian striker.

Speaking in that interview, Rodgers said, “Let me clarify that Mario won’t be a Liverpool player this season. Yes, I applauded him the other day and that’s because he is a terrific footballer, an exceptional talent, but, if you applaud a player, it doesn’t mean you are planning to buy that guy.”

Liverpool had beaten Milan by a profound margin of 2-0 in that friendly match.
