#5 Keisuke Honda
Nicknamed 'The Samurai'. Keisuke Honda is perhaps one player that can completely dictate the tempo of a game, much like Manchester United legend Paul Scholes. Honda will play in central midfield and will provide a much needed leader figure on the pitch for the players to look up to. At twenty-nine years old the Japan international still has a few years left in him and his experience will prove vital.
#4 Mario Balotelli
An outcast. Balotelli has been laundered for his off the field antics and his bad-boy image. After transferring to Liverpool, the forward struggled and returns to Milan on loan. He will have something to prove to the world here, and hopefully he can get the people back on his side.
#3 Carlos Bacca
A new signing, Carlos Bacca will want to stamp his mark on the league after moving from Spain this summer. He will also want to prove he is worth the twenty-plus million that Milan paid for his talents. A clinical finisher, Bacca will hopefully provide the goals and a figurehead for loanee striker Mario Balotelli who struggled on his return to English football.
#2 Philippe Mexés
Philippe will need to lead a defence that has youngsters knocking on the door. Without a figurehead like Allesandro Nesta in the heart of defence, Mexés will need to step up and provide advice on and off the pitch for up-and-coming youngsters such as Romagnoli and Ely.
#1 Gianluigi Donnarumma
Touted to be the next Gianlugi Buffon, his idol. Donnarumma is an exceptional talent and will provide a youthful goalkeeping option in a team that has had many "old" goalkeepers. Gianluigi will start this season as the team's number one at just sixteen years old and will be looking to prove any doubters wrong and follow in the footsteps of the great Buffon.
