You know who's a player I would have gone after? Duvan Zapata. I've always liked the guy, and this season he's on a rampage. Scored 4 goals today against Frosinone.

Higuain's too a good a striker to say no to, given our situation.

Anyway, we're in deep sh*t. We have money but we can't spend it. FFP is driving clubs like us to the ground. We don't have enough revenues to cover for all the crazy player fees circulating in today's football. Hence why wealthy clubs like Barca, Madrid, Juventus, Bayern etc. are dominating Europe.

Unless we build a new stadium, for starters, we're going nowhere.

Good old X-Offender (IMG:style_emoticons/default/graduated.gif)
I fear that in Piatek we haven't plugged the gap left by Higuain's departure.

Inter is after him... We're set to sign Piatek.

That being said, it's not like Higuain has left a huge gaping wound behind him, he's been missing in most games for a while now, probably since that Juve game, he hasn't been the same. I'd rather have a lesser player who is 100% motivated to play for our shirt than someone who's not happy to play for this club

Agreed. If it's not working out with a very expensive 31 year old, moving forward should the way to go.

It doesn't help he doesn't look belly fit either. Then you'll get old very fast.

Meh, I feel like he never really wanted to be here, we were his last resort.

That's sad, for both him and us. Seperation is good. Higuaín project disappointment. His time with us is embarrassing compared to all his previous seasons. That's not without reason.

Okay so this is why FFP restricts Milan;


QUOTE
Milan revenue growth stagnant


Milan are the top European club with the least growth in revenue over the last 10 years, just 2% compared to Inter’s 66.7%, claim Calcio e Finanza.

The website focusing entirely on the financial aspects of the sport calculated the revenue increases from 2008 to 2018, finding some intriguing results.

During the closing years of Silvio Berlusconi’s reign and during the controversial Yonghong Li period, Milan’s revenue remained practically unchanged.

It went from €209.5m in December 2008 to €213.7m in June 2018, a growth of just 2% with an annual increase of 0.18%.

In comparison, city rivals Inter increased their revenue by 66.7% during the same period, going from €172.9m in 2008 to €288.2m a decade later.

More importantly, the revenue increase spiked after 2017 with the influence of new owners Suning.

Juventus stand out by taking their revenue from €167.5m – less than Milan in 2008 – to €402.3m in 2018, largely boosted by their stadium and extended Champions League runs.

Over the last 10 years, Milan have dropped from eighth in the Brand Finance list with a brand value of approximately £134m to 18th place in 2018 at £226m.


So it isn’t a conspiracy really, whether we have Gazidis, Fassone or Galliani as CEO. Whether we have Singer’s Elliott fund, Li or Berlusconi as owner. Milan’s revenue CAGR of just 2% is indicative of the constraints it has on the transfer market. If anything you guys should lower your expectations even further now and stop considering this club as a top club. It is a ‘historic’ club, but so is Leeds in that sense. Until the club gets a new stadium and a consistant CL run, nothing changes from the current situation.

I think we all know that, the problem with Fassone was that he was quoting UEFA astronomical numbers of money coming in from the Chinese market, which at the end of the fiscal year turned out to be lower than even a million and this ended up p!ssing off UEFA more than anything else

I don't think the new management will make miracles, we need to get on the Stadium issue for sure, but with smart management, things can be improved, look at Juve as the example of a club playing in the same league as us who have managed to hit marketing goal we can only dream on today, and this is a club who were in Serie B just over a decade ago and have never had anywhere near the international success that we do

I don't think Napoli's or Roma's revenues are anything to brag about, yet they've been in the top flight of Italian football for years. We just need some smart investments and grow in confidence. Milan is not a 6th place club, FFP or not.

It is a let down and will no doubt cost us in some way. But Paqueta and Piatek look to be very good moves so far and will probably be crucial to our push for 4th

True

Apparently, we didn't find someone that will provide the jump in quality. I think our squad is good for 4th place without the injuries etc...

It seems better to wait for the right winger instead of shelling out 20mill for someone who we know won't change the quality of our football.
