Filippo Inzaghi, the manager of AC Milan, is happy to have been able to finalize Diego Lopez’s deal with Real Madrid. He reckons that the joining of the veteran shot stopper would be beneficial for the Rossoneri.
Lopez was the first choice goalie for Real Madrid in La Liga last season, but, with Keylor Navas coming in this summer, the Los Blancos decided to offload the Spaniard who has already crossed his thirty.
Talking about Lopez’s signing, Inzaghi said, “It’s a vital deal for us. Diego is a seasoned player who will add experience to our squad. Our young goalies are going to get guidance from him.”
As per the reports coming through, Lopez is reaching Italy this weekend. He is likely to go through the medical test on Monday and then, eventually he will ink the deal with Milan.
Inzaghi didn’t make any statement about Adel Taarabt though who is linked with a permanent move to San Siro this summer after being highly impressive during his loan stint the previous season.
When asked about the attacking playmaker that belongs to the Queens Park Rangers, Inzaghi said, “The final call has not been made. You guys will have to wait a little bit I guess.”
When asked if he thinks with so many changes being made, Milan would be a team to look out for in the Serie A, the 41-year old said, “I do think that the summer has gone well for us till now as far as buying the players is concerned, but, the main challenge will be on the pitch. Until, we go out there and play, we won’t know how strengthened we have got.”
The Rossoneri who saw one of their worst seasons in 2013-14 will start the league playing against Lazio.
