As previously reported, AC Milan will need to reinforce their team if they want to remain competitive in both the Serie A and the Champions League. One of their priority is the signing of a new goalkeeper, as 36 year old Christian Abbiati’s recent performances have been quite trubling; according to Sport, the rossoneri are thinking about Real Madrid 32 year old Iker Casillas, that the merengues’coach Carlo Ancelotti is using only in the Champions League. The Spain international, whose contract will expire in June 2017, could decide to leave his current club to avoid the risk to miss the FIFA World Cup. The Lombard club is also seeking a midfielder, and, as highlighted by calciomercato.com, is observing the situation of Lazio 28 year old Hernanes, who could leave at the end of the season and has been already contacted by Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

Also Juventus are extemely active on the transfer market, expecially considering the difficult situation of their 34 year old playmaker Andrea Pirlo; the Piedmontese club’s Chief Executive Giuseppe Marotta has recently declared that a negotiation for the player’s new contarct will start in February, but it seems difficult that the bianconeri will accomplish the former AC Milan’s requests. For this reason, the Serie A defending champions keep on tracking Paris Saint-Germain 21 year old Marco Verratti, who has recently extended his deal with the French club but could decide to join Juve expecially if their new coach will be Cesare Prandelli. The bianconeri are also seeking a defender, and one of their targets for such position, Red Bull Salzburg 21 year old Martin Hinteregger, has told Kleinezeitung.at, that Manchester United and an Italian club are tracking him.
