If this article had been written a week ago, the storyline would have been far different for Milan in the transfer market.
It seemed that every move made this entire summer was met with scorn and derision from the fans, and although mixed feelings were brought up once again on the final day, the end product actually turned out to be quite satisfactory.
The definition of indulging no longer applies to the Rossoneri when it's time to pull the trigger. After all, signing washed-up players on free transfers and selling young talents is hardly a way to get the fans to buy season tickets.
However, Adriano Galliani and Silvio Berlusconi showed that they still have a slight touch of magic, although it comes to the surface more sporadically these days.
Only the top moves will be graded—sorry, Kevin Constant.
Here's the grading scale:
A — Excellent (Angel Di Maria to Manchester United)
B — Good (Getting rid of Kevin Constant once and for all)
C — Satisfactory
D — Poor (Selling Bryan Cristante)
F — Failure (See Milan free-transfers past two seasons)
