AC Milan Transfer News and Rumours Tracker: Week of April 14
With AC Milan now improving under Clarence Seedorf, any concern that the coach would be sacked has essentially evaporated, and the team will look toward next season to improve dramatically.
Expect Via Turati to be very busy during the summer transfer window, as Adriano Galliani will look to make wholesale changes to accommodate the vision of his new young coach.
Here are the latest rumours surrounding the club.
Manchester United in for Adil Rami?
United are planning to spend in the range of £12m for the French central defender, while Milan were looking for a discount from Valencia to buy him at the end of the season.
Nocerino Wants West Ham Stay
Antonio Nocerino told Tuttosport (via Football Italia) that he'd like to stay with West Ham and can't see himself going back to Milan.
The midfielder was loaned out to the London outfit in the January transfer window after he fell out of Milan's rotation and failed to replicate the form that made him an Italian international two seasons ago.
Milan Eyeing Guilherme Siqueira
The report says the Rossoneri could offer 50 percent of Alberto Paloschi's contract to Granada for the services of the Brazilian left-back.
Siqueira would be an improvement in a position Milan has been desperate to fill since the days of Serginho.
Lots of Interest in El Shaarawy
Stephan El Shaarawy's agent and brother, Manuel El Shaarawy, told IlSussidiario.net (via Football Italia) that his client has attracted plenty of interest from other teams:
But he wants to stay at Milan and the Rossoneri don’t want to lose a player like him. That’s the reality.
The 21-year-old has barely gotten quality time since late 2012 and is desperate for a positive comeback after an injury-ravaged season.
El Shaarawy Should Not Leave Milan
Milan do not want Stephan El Shaarawy to leave, his brother told Radio CRC (via Football Italia).
The 21-year-old has only started one match all season after he scored 16 goals in the last campaign and became a regular part of Cesare Prandelli's Italian national team.
It would be bizarre if Milan were to get rid of the youngster, as his stock has never been lower and the return would not likely be worth it.
