Gianluigi Buffon Advices Gianluigi Donnarumma To Join Juventus

Former Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon claims that Gianluigi Donnarumma should quit AC Milan and move to Juventus next summer. There is a significant possibility that Buffon will hang up his boots at the end of the campaign.


He has already announced his retirement from the national team and Donnarumma is likely to replace him as the number one within the national team. After having held the top position in the Italy squad for the last two decades, Buffon decided to step down after Italy’s shocking failure to reach the World Cup 2018.Buffon is expected to retire from all forms of football at the end of the campaign.

ESPN Pundit Doubts Gianluigi Donnarumma’s Prospects Of Joining Chelsea

ESPN pundit Alejandro Moreno does not believe Gianluigi Donnarumma would fancy a move to Chelsea during the summer transfer window. The 19-year-old has been widely tipped to pursue a big-money switch away from the Rossoneri, should they fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League. A number of high-profile clubs including Real Madrid have been touted as potential candidates to pursue the Rossoneri graduate, but recent reports have suggested that the Blues have joined the race to sign the teenager.


The west London outfit are currently uncertain whether goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois would commit his future beyond June 2019, and this could potentially tempt them to sanction his exit during the summer rather than lose him on a free transfer at the end of next season. As a result, Donnarumma has emerged as one of the prime contenders to replace the Belgian, though Moreno does not feel the move will happen.

Gennaro Gattuso angered by AC Milan’s win over Ludogorets

AC Milan head coach Gennaro Gattuso was not entirely pleased with the Rossoneri’s 3-0 away win over Ludogorets in the Europa League last night. The San Siro outfit continued their unbeaten start to 2018 with a comfortable win in Bulgaria with Patrick Cutrone, Ricardo Rodriguez, and Fabio Borini finding the scoresheet.


A 3-0 result on the road is usually deemed the perfect result for any side, but Gattuso was not happy with the overall performance. The 40-year-old stressed that the Rossoneri were holding onto their lead rather than putting further pressure to increase their goal tally.

Gattuso Dismisses Speculation of AC Milan Exit

AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso claims that he has not contemplated resigning from his role. There has been a lot of speculation that the club legend may decide to step down from his role – just a few weeks after coming in as the new AC Milan manager – following a heavy 3-0 loss against Hellas Verona. Gattuso was a frustrated figure on the sidelines as he watched his team suffered a defeat against one of the relegation favorites. It has to be one of the low points of the campaign for Milan, who invested heavily in the squad over the summer. Yet, the club has been unable to reap the rewards for the same, as they find themselves in the ninth place.

Milan would have been hoping to at least qualify for the Champions League this season but they stand to finish outside the Europa League qualification at this rate. Milan’s recent turnaround of managers has been quite high, as new owners decided to part company with Vincenzo Montella after a poor set of results midway through the campaign. Vincenzo Montella is the longest serving of the Milan managers since Massimiliano Allegri left the club in 2014. He has been in charge of the team for just over 500 days, but it appears that Gattuso could have one of the shortest regimes after having been around only for over 25 days.

VINCENZO MONTELLA: HAVE FAITH IN ME!

AC Milan manager Vincenzo Montella has laughed off suggestions that he could be dismissed from his managerial role in the near future. The Italian said that he has been watching his funeral for a while after his side drew blank in the Europa League game against AEK Athens on Thursday night.

The Rossoneri won just one of their seven games in October including defeats to Roma, Inter Milan and Juventus. Milan also drew their doubleheader against AEK without finding the scoresheet, and this is a cause of concern for a side, who appear to lack cohesion among their players.

Vincenzo Montella confident of holding onto AC Milan job

AC Milan manager Vincenzo Montella has laughed off suggestions that he could be dismissed from his managerial role in the near future.


The Italian said that he has been watching his funeral for a while after his side drew blank in the Europa League game against AEK Athens on Thursday night.

The Rossoneri won just one of their seven games in October including defeats to Roma, Inter Milan and Juventus. Milan also drew their doubleheader against AEK without finding the scoresheet, and this is a cause of concern for a side, who appear to lack cohesion among their players.

Speaking to Sport Italia, Montella assured that the club’s hierarchy are still behind him with the club still in pole position to achieve progress to the last 32 of the Europa League, he said: “It was a delicate match today, the next ones probably will be too. Suso had a muscular problem, so I didn’t want to risk him, but he’ll probably play at the weekend. I’ve been watching my funeral for a while. It gives you a new perspective on things. All joking aside, the club has faith in me and we’ll see.” Read more… »

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang confirms AC Milan talks

Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has admitted that there was indeed transfer interest from AC Milan over the summer.


The Gabon international started his professional career with the Rossoneri, and he was understood to be keen on a return to San Siro.

In a report covered by Football Italia, Aubameyang confirmed that the Rossoneri had lodged an approach for his services, but the deal could not materialise due to different reasons, he said: “It’s true, Milan contacted me and offered me something. I was very interested in their project, but it didn’t go through for many different reasons.”

The Rossoneri had made contact for Aubameyang in the early part of the summer transfer window, and the failure to recruit him led them to the signing of Andre Silva. The ex-Porto graduate has already proved a huge hit for the Rossoneri with five goals in seven appearances including an impressive hat-trick in the 5-1 thumping of Austria Vienna in the Europa League opener.

Meanwhile, Aubameyang has also clarified that he no longer dreams of a Real Madrid move after the European champions showed no interest in his services. The Gabon international has established himself as the leading marksman for Dortmund following Robert Lewandowski’s departure to Bayern Munich in 2014, and he is now eager to end their Bundesliga drought which has now lasted for five seasons.

Vincenzo Montella: AC Milan still on the right path

AC Milan head coach Vincenzo Montella insists that the Rossoneri are still on the right path despite their disappointing 2-0 defeat to AS Roma on home soil.


The Rossoneri are said to have the ambition of securing a Champions League spot for the campaign after having coughed up more than 160 million pounds on 11 players including Leonardo Bonucci, Andre Silva and HakanCalhanoglu.

Edin Dzeko and Alessandro Florenzi bagged the goals for AS Roma, who are now six points adrift of leaders Napoli with a game in hand. As a result, Montella’s side have suffered back-to-back defeats to Sampdoria and Roma respectively, and this had led to murmurs across social media that Carlo Ancelotti could make a surprise return to Milan, where he enjoyed most of his success a decade ago.

Leonardo Bonucci reveals why he left Juventus for AC Milan

AC Milan captain Leonardo Bonucci has lifted the lid on why he made the controversial switch to San Siro from Juventus during this summer’s transfer window.


The Italy international has made a good start to his career with the Rossoneri after having won the first two games of the Serie A season.

Speaking from Italy’s training centre on Tuesday, Bonucci admitted that he had to move on from the Serie A holders due to decisions made from the club’s hierarchy, he said: “I left Juventus because of some decisions made by the board. One must have balls to do what I did. They told me I am traitor, a mercenary and other stuff even if I always gave the best for Juventus. I did get along with Juventus until the end. I was not doing the difference in the defence of Juventus, I played alongside great champions and without them it wouldn’t have been the same for me.” Read more… »

Bayern Munich midfielder snubs Chelsea in favour of AC Milan

Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches has opted to snub advances from Premier League’s Chelsea in order to pursue a move to AC Milan this summer.


The Portugal international is likely to join the Rossoneri on a temporary basis with Bayern hoping that the player will evolve into a top-class prospect in the future.

Sanches, 19, struggled to make a regular appearance in the German top-flight last season, and he was restricted to just six starts through the campaign. Following last week’s 3-2 friendly win over Chelsea, Sanches admitted that he would prefer to join AC Milan, where he would get more of an opportunity to progress, he said: “Of course, I would like to play more that’s why I want to change and go to a club where I would play more. AC Milan is an interesting option. If the opportunity emerges and the clubs can agree, I would like to know. I’m young, I want and I have to play a lot. I think the chance to do so is greater in Milan than in Munich.” Read more… »
