The following is a translation from milannews.it
We have the chosen one (Inzaghi), the ousted one (Seedorf), we have the certainties, few and far between, (like El Sharaawy), and the many unknowns [in terms of performance], (Kaka and Balotelli). This is Milan of present day, a club with many ideas but few certainties. However to build something you need patience and diligence and Galliani is working hard to achieve just that.
“Si parte da Pippo” It begins with Pippo, someone who has Milan is his heart and in his veins. He’s the one who has to teach the younger players and the more ‘distracted’ players just what it means to wear the Milan jersey. Also he is the one who will build the team, it wont be stellar, but it will be well thought out and calculated, it will be better than last year’s team without a doubt. Inzaghi, who starts his holidays tomorrow, has already been working hard with Galliani in search of players for Milan. One of these players is Casemiro, midfielder for Read Madrid, the relationship between the two clubs would make and negotiation easier, but playing to Milan’s advantage is the friendship between the Rossoneri and Carlo Ancelotti, who could approve Casemiro’s departure.
The dream however would be another, Marcelo, he is greatly admire by the Milan front-office, and this year he has played sparingly under Carletto. Marcelo has been surpassed by Coentrao on the depth-chart, and as such, he might want to leave Madrid, and Milan may be the team to do it. However there is competition for Marcelo in the form on the again Italian champions Juve.
In terms of forwards: Balotelli should stay bar any presidential decrees, but much will depend from the World Cup. Once he returns from Brazil, Super Mario will have a summit with the Milan board and we will see if he decides to play the way Berlusconi wants him to. If this pairing were to cease to continue, Super Pippo has already identified the forward he wants, it happens to be another Mario, Mario Mandzukic who currently is unhappy at Bayern Munich. Recently Mandzukic announced that he would be leaving Bayern because he is incompatible with Guardiola’s tactics. Milan waits for updates on this front.
Kaka’, his situation is delicate, who is now deciding what to do next season. His first choice would be to return to Brazil to be around his family, specifically in San Paolo. The other option would be to stay at Milan where we could see the same (lackluster) performances of the last season.
