It is now clear that in the next transfer window AC Milan will try to sign a midfielder. As reported by the Corriere dello Sport, the rossoneri could swoop on three Real Madrid players who are no longer part of Jose Mourinho's plans: 31 year old Xabi Alonso, 26 year old Fernando Gago, last season on loan at AS Rome, and 23 year old Nuri Sahin. Milan are also interested in 27 year old Lassana Diarra, but the Frenchman's salary is considered too high. All seems decided about the position of left wingback: Didac Vilà and Luca Antonini will be confirmed, while Djamel Mesbah and Taye Taiwo will leave.
Bad news for Juventus regarding the midfield: after meeting the player's agent, Pescara have communicated through their official website that 21 year old Marco Verratti is not on the market and will remain. Regarding the offensive line, the bianconeri keep on tracking Napoli 25 year old Edinson Cavani, but the right name could be the one of Wolfsburg 26 year old Mario Mandzukic. According to calciomercato.com, in fact, the Piedmontese club, as well as PSG, are already in talks with the Croatia national. Wolfsburg, who are ready seeking a substitute, require between 12 and 15 million euros, and Juve are trying to insert in the eventual negotiation Eljero Elia or Milos Krasic.
