The San Siro was set a roar on Saturday night after AC Milan's 3-0 victory over perennial Serie A bottom feeder, Brescia.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Kevin-Prince Boateng and Robinho all scored in the victory, keeping AC Milan atop the Serie A. It's a huge win as Milan stays three points ahead of Lazio who won on Friday night over Inter Milan 3-1.

So now comes the thought, is AC Milan finally back as a threat to win the Serie A? 

It certainly seems so as the collection of transfers and loaned players from the summer transfer period have been coming out in full force to help the older Rossoneri to big wins all season long.

After a rocky and long season in which manager Leonardo was fired, AC Milan appear to have turned the corner and once again are the top dog in Serie A.

New manager Massimiliano Allegri has taken over; he has taken the players and turned them, and the club, into gold.

Ibrahimovic is out on loan from Barcelona, and what a great loan he has been. Appearing in 14 matches thus far, he has made his presence felt scoring eight goals in Serie A and tallying four more goals in European Cup play.

AC Milan has the ability at the end of Ibrahimovic's loan to buy his contract outright for €24 million. Why wouldn't they? He has found his groove in helping rejuvenate this club.

Also, the addition of Robinho from Manchester City has helped tremendously as well; he has pushed five goals into the back of the net in Serie A play and seemingly has played to his full potential thus far.

With one game left in the UEFA Champions league, AC Milan has assuredly gotten second place in their group behind Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid.

They're first in Serie A and second in the Champions League. This is their year to win the Serie A and with the help of the players brought in, they have a better chance than anyone else.
