Allegri Dismissed By A.C. Milan

A.C. Milan today dismissed manager Massimiliano "Max" Allegri after he was quoted in the Italian media slating A.C. Milan chairman and former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, particularly about the clubs recent transfer policy and lack of high profile signings. Allegri had managed to win the Serie A in the 10-11 season, his first season at Milan, and at the start of the 11-12 season, his Milan side beat city rivals Inter 2-1 to win the Supercoppa Italiana. As well as winning two trophies at Milan, he managed to win the Serie A coach of the year award for the 10-11 season. He holds an impressive record at the red half of the San Siro, taking charge of 151 matches, winning 83 matches, drawing 38 matches and losing 30 matches. Milan fans will be expecting a big name replacement as they look to return to the top of Serie A after Allegri won their first league title since 2004 during the 10-11 season. Rumors have been going round that Milan could offer the job to former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola, where as names such as Walter Mazzarri and Laurent Blanc have also been mentioned in the press and on the internet.

Shevchenko Begins Rebuild

A.C. Milan manager Andriy Shevchenko has started to rebuild his Milan team by selling two players to add extra funds to his transfer kitty.

28 year old Brazilian forward Robinho left to join chelsea for £20m after scoring 20 goals in 62 games.

31 year old defender Danielle Bonera joined Fiorentina for £1.5m after playing 107 games.

Shevchenko has promised fans that he will use the money to strengthen the side with at least four new players as he aims to take his side back to the top of Serie A

A.C. Milan Re-Sign Legend

A.C. Milan have today announced that they have re-signed fan favourite Kaka from Real Madrid in a deal worth £7.75m. Brazilian midfielder Kaka, who scored 70 goals in 193 games during his first spell at the San Siro, has signed a 3 year deal worth around £110,000 per week. Shevchenko said recently it was vital to bring his former team-mate back to Milan, after he was transfer listed at Real Madrid, to help the teams title charge. The 30 year old has expressed his delight at returning to Milan and admits he wants to try and become the future captain and earn his place in the Milan hall of fame. Kaka has also won 82 caps for Brazil scoring 27 goals, and has not given up on cementing a place in his nations team, despite the emergence of younger players.
Kaka!! Back where he belongs!

Milan Sign Toure

A.C. Milan manager Andriy Shevchenko has completed his second signing of his regime in Ivorian defender Kolo Toure. Toure has signed on a 1 year deal worth £51,000 a week after Milan payed £950,000 for his services. Toure has said he is delighted to be at such a prestigious club and aims to be a rock at the heart of Milan's defense, although rumors are that a clause in his contract states that if he plays 30 games for the club, he will get a pay rise to £135,000 a week, leading to suggestions that Shevchenko will use him in a rotation system with other centre backs. Toure has won 96 caps for Ivory Coast scoring 5 goals, and has been asked to tutor one of the teams young defenders, although Shevchenko is yet to decide on who.

Milan Sign Three Promising Stars

Andriy Shevchenko is definatley planning for the future after completing the signatures of three promising youngsters. Following the arrivals of Kaka and Toure, the Ukrainian obviously felt the need to add some youth to his side to enable a rotation policy with youngsters.

First is 17 year old Will Hughes, a highly rated English Midfielder signed from Derby for £5.5m.

Second up, is 19 year Jores Okore, a highly rated Danish Defender signed from FC Nordsjaelland for a fee of £3.4m, which met his release clause.

Last but not least, is 18 year old Mattheus, a very talented Brazilian Midfielder signed from Flamengo for a fee of £925k which met the wonderkids release clause.
Some interesting signings. In my opinion Kaka has never been the player he was at Milan since he has been at Real Madrid. It will be great to see him back at Milan and hopefully get back to his hay day. Good luck for the season.
He got 2 goals in his first pre-season match so im hoping for that form in the league. And i have had an average pre-season so far, but will hope that i can at least qualify for the champions league.
Fantastic start pal, will follow
Doesn't Milan expect you to challenge for the title? :p And Hughes has a unibrow! :))
Nice signings and updates so far, should be interesting. :)
Great start there mate and Im surprised you got so much for Robinho! Some good signings though looking forward to it
