AC Milan will have to defeat PSV Eindhoven in the UEFA Champions League play-offs to qualify for the top European competition’s group stage, and the result of the double challenge will affect the rossoneri’s transfer market strategy, as only in case of qualification they will be able to set an important strike. For the moment, the Lombard club keeps on observing the situation of CSKA Moscow 27 year old attacking midfielder Keisuke Honda, with the relations between the two parties who are always more tense. Milan would like also to reinforce its team’s defense, but one of their main target for such position, Steaua Bucharest 23 year old Vlad Chiriches seems always harder to reach: interviewed by calciomercato.it, in fact, Victor Becali, agent of the Romania international, has declared that his client won’t leave his current club before the Winter transfer window.
City rivals Inter Milan keep on seeking a midfielder and one of their main targets remais Bologna 21 year old Saphir Taider: according to Il Corriere di Bologna, the rossoblu have accepted the offer made by Inter, so the player could move to “San Siro” next Monday; at the same time, Telelombardia director Fabio Ravezzani has announced that the nerazzurri have carried out the negotiation for Cagliari 25 year old Radja Nainggolan, whose signing will be officialized on August 25th, after the arrival of the new investor Erick Thohir. The Lombard club is also seeking a wingback, and, according to Sky Sport 24, has finally obtained 19 year old Wallace from Chelsea.
