I don't think we are spending a dime this winter. We are basically in Galliani mode - "fine as we are". Or at best "no one will arrive unless someone leave".

Deulofeu If they get Coutinho should be ours...

I'm not seeing any Deulofeu rumours linking him to us but seen more around Inter. Would happily take him back even on loan if it means Borini is benched.

If no money is spent this winter I can't say I'll be disappointed. With the financial considerations the club cannot afford to waste money.

I disagree - I cant believe Milan wont loan or sign anyone, unless new management is happy to finish the first season in charge as 12th.

It's not likely they can make that much difference in this transfer window. Someone like Deulofeu coming in for Borini would be a quick and easy upgrade, but other than that it will be difficult to bring that much quality to the team.

We have a good squad with real potential that needs time under a good coach to develop, and then on top of that spend big on top class players. Winter mercato is never the time to get such guys unless you're Barcelona going for Coutinho.

We really should invest in a LW if we are trying to play 4-3-3 i've been saying that since the last mercato the question is do we have any funds to do so.

Exactly. I'd say LW followed by a Kessie backup are the most urgent needs.

But it's so hard to find a good deal in January . . .

I hope Conti comes back strong, hate to se Abate there ffs.

We can get rid of some useless players like: Palletta, Zapata, Gomez, Abate, Antonelli, Mauri, Monto, and Kalinic :)

Conti presence is something which the team miss a lot. His running up the right flank gives Suso another avenue to look out for and harder for opponent to consider double teaming him.

1) Your main mistake was hiring two failures like Mirabelli and Fassone. Please Google their history, and see who they bought in previous teams, such as Inter for example. Shocked they were given so much power when rebuilding a team with their terrible track record.

2) Big issue in Italian football. Expecting to build a team and having no patience in actually building a team, team work etc. Buying players without any real reason.

3) You need to sell all these Paletta like players, choose a coach and stick with a project. Firing Montella was, again, another huge mistake by Milan. Clearly results show it. It was not the coach but the low quality of players.

4) Come summer, you need to sell all these players who showed they were busts. I think some are showing good skills (Rodriguez is good for example) but some are trash. Kessie, over-hyped slow robotic player with 0 morale. He can do well in smaller teams but he is no Milan player and can not achieve much IMO. Same goes for Andre Silva, Kalinic, and Borini. Borini tries, runs.. but he is limited both technically and physically. Kalinic and Andre Silva are just bad players.

5) Cutrone needs to be developed, same with Locatelli. I personally would keep Abate as second of Conti, no need to sell him.

So we are linked to Boca and Flamengo players.
Finally we have scouts in South America
