Only a few weeks after Mario Balotelli’s future at AC Milan seemed at an end, chief executive Adriano Galliani claims that the striker may stay at the San Siro after all.
Whilst the ownership issues rumble on in Milan and Euro 2016 plays out in France, there are still some bargains that the club can look at.
Adriano Galliani will need to be shrewd in this window as they already trail Inter and Juventus on summer signings but that does not mean that they do not have some excellent players on their radar.
AC Milan summer transfer target, Mateo Kovacic shut down rumours linking him to the club as a summer transfer signing.
The Croatia international who just won the UEFA Champions League says he was sorry to leave Italian giants, Inter Milan.
Speaking to Automatenherz, the Real Madrid midfielder said:
AC Milan suffered a major setback in their Europa league qualification after a 3-3 draw with relegation threatened Frosinone.
Milan had to come back from being two goals down not once but twice in the game. Even though the result meant two dropped points, manager Cristian Brocchi claimed that he was happy with the fightback shown by his team. A youth team coach a few weeks ago, Brocchi was chosen as the interim manager of Milan until the end of the campaign. Even then, owner Silvio Berlusconi has set a target of qualifying for Europe.
Silvio Berlusconi has confirmed that Sinisa Mihajlovic will stay on as the coach of AC Milan if he manages to win the Coppa Italia.
The Italian outfit have been in decline for quite a while. None of the managers have been able to reveal the club, as the problem largely appears to arise from the owner. The lack of investments in playing staff mean that managers have not been able to get consistent results.Mihajlovic looked to have found a way in the first few weeks of the season, but he has not been able to arrest the slide that since followed.
AC Milan gained an immense bout of confidence after a 3-0 win over archrivals Inter Milan on Sunday.
This was a huge morale booster for the team which has been looking to build on the recent good run of form. ManagerSinisaMihajlovic only recently received a vote of confidence from the owner Berlusconi, who has been looking to get the club back into the top levels of Italian football. It has been a good few years since AC Milan last were seen in the top three places. The club are now just six points behind Fiorentina, who are third in the table.
Napoli kept their position at the top of the table following a sixth consecutive victory in the league.
The 5-1 success over Empoli was very important considering that Juventus had also managed a win from their match. The difference between the two teams is only two points at the top of the table. Napoli are the unlikely candidate for the league title whereas Juventus remain the strong favourites after having won the title for the past four seasons. Maurizio Sarri has masterminded the title challenge from the underdogs and he believes that there is no pressure from Juventus.
AC Milan have faced so many problems over the last five years that former coach Carlo Ancelotti believes that it will be tough for the team to think about immediate success even after the appointment of SinisaMihajlovic.
AC Milan have confirmed through a statement that midfielder Nigel de Jong will not be available for the match against Juventus on Saturday. This will be one of the crucial matches for Milan in their attempts to recover from a deep well.
Sinisa Mihajlovic is the 4th manager that has taken over Ac.Milan since January of 2014. Mauro Tassotti, Clarence Seedorf and Filippo Inzaghi were all of the former managers of the Italian club that had to be removed from their managerial position after a disappointing season.
Mauro Tassotti was the only one who wasn’t sacked as he only served as an interim manager and still has a close relationship with Ac.Milan as he is working as a talent scout for the Italian outfit.
