Italy Serie A — 23 July 2012

AC Milan have undergone a major overhaul of their squad this summer and lost some big players. The Rossoneri haven’t just lost the likes of Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but also the experience of Alessandro Nesta and Clarence Seedorf.


Next season will be a transitional season for Massimiliano Allegri’s team. They have lost the nucleus of the team from recent seasons and the Milan head coach will have a major job on his hand to rebuild his squad.

The arrival of Italian international Riccardo Montolivo is an exciting one, but Milan are in need of new faces ahead of the start of the season. The Rossoneri were linked with highly-rated Brazilian striker Leandro Damiao recently, but his club Internacional have claimed they are unwilling to sell the 22 year-old.


Milan already have Alexandre Pato, Robinho and Antonio Cassano in attack. I don’t believe that signing a replacement for Ibrahimovic is the clubs priority. I believe a replacement for Thiago Silva is the more pressing matter.

The Brazilian has been a rock at the centre of that Milan defence for a while now and a suitable replacement needs to be found for the Brazilian international.


It will be difficult for Milan to challenge for the Serie A next season. Juventus were fantastic last season and they have strengthened their squad this summer. The Old Lady has brought in Udinese’s impressive midfield duo of Mauricio Isla and Kwadwo Asamoah.

They have also bought the full rights to attacker Sebastian Giovinco’s contract, after the 25 year-old impressed for Parma in Serie A last season. Juventus’ squad seems to have got better and Milan’s severely weaker. Next season could be a very tough one for AC Milan and their fans.

Can AC Milan challenge Juventus for next seasons Serie A title?
