Don't like the Abate thing at all, especially for someone like Urby.
-------

P.s. pin this thread instead of the old one.

It says for De Sciglio. Where does it say anything about Urby?

The very first paragraph.

[...] while Ignazio Abate could be a possible casualty of the new regime.


EDIT: Sorry, thought you meant Abate. My bad.

Bacause it wouldn't be MDS vs Abate for RB role if Seedorf didn't see Urby as a starting and irreplaceable LB. IMO, Abate at RB and MDS at LB as starters as it was before is a much better option than Urby with one of them.

He didn't say that but it seems like that so far + it was implied there: http://www.football-italia.net/43900/seedo...enew-emanuelson and it turns to be true so far as Abate is healthy but not playing and this wasn't the only rumor about his possible departure.

I'm starting to dislike Seedorf as a coach already. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif) Abate is one of my favorite players.

A few interesting articles on Goal.com.

<http://www.goal.com/it/news/7/calciomercato/2014/02/05/4595251/il-milan-si-prepara-a-unestate-rovente-45-milioni-pronti-per> is basically saying that we will have some money to spend this summer, something in the order of 45M. Some data points:
- Missing CL will cost us 30M, but ...
- Recent contracts made with players have a clause that reduces salary by 20% if Milan does not make a European competition. With player salaries at 105M, that would be a savings of 21M.
- Additional savings would come if we get rid of excess players (in particular Mexes and Robinho). Personally, I will believe this when I see it, as our recent track record shows we are not good at unloading players.
- The article also has some suspect looking calculations that yield 45M as the amount we could spend

<http://www.goal.com/it/news/7/calciomercato/2014/02/05/4596273/pazza-idea-cellino-per-il-cagliari-galliani-presidente-al-fianco-?ICID=HP_TS_2> is basically sayng that Galliani is being offered a job to run Cagliari. Apparently the team is going to be owned by the Al Thani family from Abu Dhabi, who have strong links with Galliani (as does Cellino, who apparently recommended him for the job). Have mixed feelings about this. It is time for new management and new ideas. OTOH, who do we have that can step in? Barbara? (Hmm ...)

<http://www.goal.com/it/news/7/calciomercato/2014/02/05/4596452/calciomercato-milan-altro-colpo-low-cost-nel-mirino-piace?ICID=HP_BN_1> links us with Alex from PSG, who apparently is not renewing his contract. We are also linked with Vidic, Musacchio, Doria from Botafogo, and Martins Indi from Feyenoord. Only familiar with Vidic. Any insight on the rest?

Should have posted this under "Summer Transfers 2014", did not realize it had been opened :-). Can we pin it?

In any case, Galliani has denied the rumor about Cagliari (see <http://www.goal.com/it/news/7/calciomercato/2014/02/05/4596878/macch%C3%A8-cagliari-galliani-giura-amore-eterno-al-milan-non-lo?ICID=HP_BN_4>). Though in Galliani's case a denial could mean anything.

Read on FIF that we are after Van der Vaart, end of contract and Seedorf might work his magic...

yeah, this is what's allowed to happen when the high-flying disciplinary boot of Ibra no longer patrols and invigilates practices...guys start thinking they can invent a reputation for themselves without even playing 1 minute for the club...

Getting rid of Abate would be a terrible move. He's a starter for the National team, a Milan youth product, entering his prime years as a footballer, and doesn't make a huge amount. I like Urby and I think he should get an extension but we shouldn't be sacrificing Abate for him.

Yeah, it's nonsense. There are SO many ahead of him that need to go.
