Despite the statement from their vice president, Adriano Galliani, saying that Ac Milan will not be purchasing until they sell some of their players, rumors regarding the team’s possible summer signings keeps on flooding. The latest inclusion that hit the Italian media is that the Rossoneri is back on the race to sign Lazio’s midfielder, Cristian Ledesma, who last season has also been linked with the red and black squad.
Reports stated that Milan will eventually bid for Ledesma, who only has one year left in his contract, should they loose Gennaro Gatusso who could go to United Arab Emirates. If the scenario happens, the Italian press believed the Rossoneri will push for the Argentinian who is being valued around 7 million Euro, the price that the Diavolo Rosso could still agree with despite their tight budget policy.
More speculation that arose stated that, Ledesma would be a key figure on the future Allegri’s Milan which could play a diamond 4-4-2 formation, as the technical abilities of the 28-years-old player would fit the style that the former Cagliar coach’s wanted for his team. Despite hasn’t been playing lots of football last season, Ledesma undoubtedly possessed the technical qualities that puts him among the most talented centrocampista in Serie A as he does have a good passing range, vision, and dead ball executions.
Personally, I’m sure that many Milan fans would accept the transfer should it happens as the club is dying to have a fresh qualities in that core of the team’s playing. Although, there are demands by the tifosi for the club to sign younger players, the devotees should realize that Ledesma is indeed a quality act that could really help the team next season. Surely, his price tag that is well in reach of Milan’s financial abilities would make him a reasonable targets for the Rossoneri to strengthen their squad while they curiously awaits the result of their youth programs. Overall, the Argentinian could be one an important signing for the fashion capital club in their bid to challenge for a title this summer.
