What to do at the trequartista position

The Milan organization has decided to switch the formation back to the 4-3-1-2. Saponara was bought to play the trequartista position. So far, we have Boateng and Saponara to play that position. They have been reports about Boateng leaving Milan and Galliani looking towards Honda who has more experience to fill the position. Galliani and the Milan organization have implemented a plan for the club’s present and future. They want to buy young players who will play for Milan and stay there for 10 years. Back in November of 2012, they were articles of Milan pressing Serie A to allow Hachim Mastour to play for the first team at the age of 15. The issue is that the legal age for a player to play in the Serie A is 16. Hachim Mastour turns 16 in June of 2014, which is not in time for the 2013 season. Galliani has reiterated multiple times Milan has to sell before they can buy. This is something Galliani stated last summer, but he had quantity of quality. But the constant reiteration of that statement leaves me to believe this time he is truly trying to accomplish quality over quantity. He also wants to allow youth products time and space to graduate to the first team and develop for the years to come at Milan. If Milan sells Boateng and buy Keisuke, where does that leave Mastour for the 2014 season? If we have Boateng or Honda for the 2014 season, that leaves Mastour third in the pecking order for playing time. I believe Milan should sell Boateng, but do not buy a trequartista player at any moment. Allow Saponara to excel at the attacking midfield position and work Niang gradually in the position as well. Allegri should nurture Niang for the second striker and attacking midfield position, which allows flexibility down the road when needed. This also gives Niang more playing time without Niang thinking he should leave for more playing time. Since Galliani has told Allegri to give Oduamadi an opportunity to prove himself with the first team this summer, he should be given an attempt at the same position. This allows time for Hachim Mastour to enter the first team the following season. By time the 2014 season rolls around, Mastour will be second in the pecking order right behind Riccardo “Ricky” Saponara, while having Niang who will develop experience as a trequartista. If Milan somehow gets Mastour to play for the first team this season by convincing Serie A for an exception, Milan will have two of the most exciting trequartista for years to come.
