Desperation creeping in as Serie A side tries hard to appease angry supporters!
Milan are planning to sign Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas, with Rossoneri club president Silvio Berlusconi having given the move the go-ahead.
According to Tuttosport, vice president Adriano Galliani has a pre-agreement in place with Berlusconi over the Spanish international, and Gunners coach Arsene Wenger has promised he will sell Fabregas to the Italian giants.
The report suggests Milan will offer Arsenal around €35 million for the midfielder. Fabregas will be tempted with a five-year deal worth €4m-per-season. Just weeks ago Berlusconi claimed he wanted players who were under 23-years-old, and Fabregas fits the bill.
A meeting that was scheduled for 12:00 CET today between Berlusconi, Galliani and Leonardo to discuss Fabregas has been cancelled. It has been rearranged for Wednesday.
During the meeting, which has been labelled as a ‘G3 summit’, the trio will discuss plans for Fabregas, Andrea Pirlo’s future and Luis Fabiano’s possible arrival. (Goal.com)
This is a joke, surely? Having offloaded Kaka and generally screwing up their club and feeling the wrath of their fans, the San Siro side are trying to fool their supporters into thinking they are in a position to even tempt Cesc to join them. Please!
Let’s not get started on the fee, which is abysmal, AC Milan should look closely at how Barcelona failed repeatedly to come close to unsettling Fabregas into leaving the Emirates, and at least they had a shot at signing him what with him being a former Barca man, but the Italians haven’t got a hope in hell of getting this deal to fly.
Having lost Carlo Ancelotti and their best player the Italian giants are in for a struggle this coming season and seem to have a problem scraping funds together for a meaningful move in the transfer market and it kind of makes you wonder where all that Real Madrid money went? Consider also that Leonardo also has to cope with the loss of influential leader Paolo Maldini and probably Andrea Pirlo to boot and what do they have to show in the way of incoming players? Oguchialu Onyewu, yep, that’s it! No wonder the Rossoneri fans rioted when the club came back for pre-season training!
