AC Milan: will Allegri extend? Napoli: Mascherano and Skrtel in January

03 September at 12:55

As highlighted by, AC Milan have ended their transfer market campaign with a glamorous strike like the signing of 31 year old attacking midfielder Kakà –who will be introduced to the press Thursday at 12 am at Milanello- but have not succeeded in reinforcing their midfield and their defense: the rossoneri have decided to renounce to Ajax 21 year old Christian Eriksen –who has finally joined Tottenham- and have asked 26 year old Davide Astori on loan with right to buy, but Cagliari president Massimo Cellino has refused, while for Napoli 32 year old Paolo Cannavaro they have been in competition with city rivals Inter Milan. On the other hand, considering the fact that his president Silvio Berlusconi wants the team to play with an attacking midfielder behind two forwards, coach Massimiliano Allegri has the right men to do it, and now will play all his chances to obtain a new contract. Moreover, as explained yesterday, 21 year old forward Stephan El Shaarawi has finally decided to remain, but will have to change his position on the pitch to be able to compete with his new teammates.

Similar situation for Napoli, who, after reinforcing their offensive line with a top player like Gonzalo Higuain, have not signed a new midfielder and a new defender as expected by their fans. The azzurri were are thinking about Liverpool 28 year old Martin Skrtel and Barcelona 29 year old Javier Mascherano, and a new attempt for these two players will probably be made in January, expecially if the team will qualify for the Champions League’s next stage.
