January transfers preview
Italian club A.C. Milan are at a good run of form so far at the Serie A, and they will try to improve even more after the January transfer window. Chief scout Salvatore Monaco has made a report to Or Dabool, regarding the players he believes needs to be signed or sold.
#4 Sulley Muntari
Monaco: Muntari has already stated that he will not extend his contract with the club, and we don't need to keep him until the end of the season. The defensive midfield is already 31 and we need to find a younger player in his place.
#14 Michelangelo Albertazzi
Monaco: Although his young age of 25, Albertazzi isn't finding his place in the team and he has already stated that he wants to move on, at least on a loan. He normally plays as a center-back, but he only plays as a left-back at the club because we have too much center-backs.
#11 Giampaolo Pazzini
Monaco: Following Munir's great run of form and young age, he is the striker that often start games for A.C. Milan. Even in matches that Munir needs to rest, Fernando Torres is doing much better job than 31 years old Pazzini. I believe he still have some seasons before he will retire, but he just doesn't have a place here.
Monaco: There is no doubt that Ilsinho was one of the best deals the club has made lately. With being bought for just £500K, his value has grown very much. Yet, he is playing as a right-back, when he should be a right-midfielder. His age is also high (30) and it looks like it is best for him to move on.
Sassuolo's Domenico Berardi
Monaco: With Sassuolo demoted to Serie B last season, this is just the time to snap the young striker. Berardi is a very professional young talent that has a lot of potential. It will be interesting to see his cooperation with Munir.
PSG's Matteo Darmian
Monaco: Darmian is a player who grew at our club back at the day, and he is regarded as an home-grown player for the club. This might be the right time to bring him back home. He is a great cover for both our defenders (Corchia and De Sciglio).
River Plate's Matías Kranevitter
Monaco: Well, I have already presented Kranevitter. The Argentinian 22 years old defensive midfielder is a great talent, and he wants to join our club. It will probably take time for him to settle in Europe but I believe he is a great investment.
Sampdoria's Pedro Obiang
Monaco: Another great improvement to our midfield can be 23 years old Pedro Obiang. Obiang has a release clause of £8.75M, and he is a great physical addition to the midfield play.
With the transfer window coming close, it will be interesting to see who will join and who will leave A.C. Milan.
