Here is some good news for all Milan fans. Ronaldinho will remain with the Rossoneri for another season. Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani has also stated that a new deal to keep the play maker at the San Siro for longer is close to completion.
In what had become a tussle for his sensational skills involving clubs from some of the world’s major leagues, the 30 year old seems set to stay in the fashion capital for at least another year. However, before you pop open the champagne bottles, there is also some little bad news.
Apparently, Galliani also indicated that Dinho’s deal marks the end of Milan’s participation in the summer transfer market. They say everything comes at a price and this is no exception. Yeah i know that this is bound to cause you some anxiety especially considering how desperately Milan need some youth in their ranks, moreover potential deals to land new players could stall because of this statement.
What this means for the Keisuke Honda deal i do not know. What i do know is this, Milan will be opening Pandora’s box if they fail to buy some new talented players. In an interview with gazetta.it Galliani explained his decision.
“The market is closed, assuming no one departs, this is the team,” he stated.
“If someone does leave, then someone will come. If a small part then a little reinforcement, if medium an average one, and if a champion leaves than a champion will arrive. But I think this will be our squad.”
So can Milan be a threat to the likes of Inter, Roma and Juve next season? As much as i want to believe that they would, i do not think its possible. Is Ronaldinho the answer to Milan’s problems? He showed us what he can do when he is in top form but then again, banking on one player could spell doom for their Serie A campaign. With a little over a month to go until the transfer window closes, there is still hope that maybe Milan could add another talented player to their squad.
