The lastest news in the this transfer window comes from AC Milan who are scouting the market for a mid fielder and the top most name of their list is Zenit star Axel Witsel who the Italian giants have been after for a really long time!
This transfer window AC Milan wants to have their cake and eat it too! Without burning a hole in their pockets, the Milan outfit want to solve the problems in their midfield. With that aim they are eyeing two Belgian midfielders but a chance to bring them to the San Siro seems really slim.
The No.1 target for AC Milan is Axel Witsel without whose name a transfer season does not start for the Italian club. What works in favour of AC Milan is Witsel’s desire to leave the Russian club since last summer but Zenit will surely not let Witsel go for the bargain deal that AC Milan are aiming to offer.
According to reports in Calciomercato, AC Milan are likely to go for a deal that involves getting the player on a loan deal and the converting the same into a permanent one. But such a deal will not be humoured by Zenit who would want to earn in the transfer.
The other Belgian on the Milan shopping list is a certain Marouane Fellaini. But here too the deal might not come through given Milan’s miserly nature and the whopping price tag that Van Gaal has placed on the 28 year old. As the report says, LVG wants 20 million pounds in cash for Fellaini which the Italian giants in all probability wouldn’t want to give. Fellaini has started in 12 games for the Red Devils and has scored 2 goals which bodes how average his season at Old Trafford has been so far. The price quoted by the Dutchman might even go up given his need to buy players this January who might turn things around for the club.
So things don’t look so positive for the Italians in this transfer window!
