Calciomercato fever: Milan going all in for Carletto

Berlusconi and Galliani are trying to make Ancelotti's return to Milan real and they're using "heavy artillery" to convince him.

After yesterday's meeting between president Florentino Perez and Ernesto Bronzetti, it seems that Ancelotti's time at Real Madrid is becoming closer and closer to an end. Despite last year's huge achievement, that means winning the 10th Champions League in team's history or La Décima as they like to call it, Carletto's career in Spain seems to be over due to this disappointing season where Real Madrid underachieved in any competition (La Liga, Champions League, Copa del Rey).

Now, he's evaluating some opportunity for his future: Milan and Manchester City are realistic destinations for the next season but he's also thinking about taking a sabbatical year. In particular, Galliani and his collaborators are offering all they can to convince him to get back in Milan, where he left a lot of fantastic memories.

Three big names for Carletto

How can you convince one of the best coaches in the world to join your team? What's better than promising to acquire a couple of big names? What's better than signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Radamel Falcao? Galliani and his collaborators are working to bring these two strikers in Milan as soon as possible, but it's not as easy as it seems. They're the most expensive strikers on the market and Milan's financial resources are very limited, despite recently speculations, so one of them might join AC Milan on loan and the other permanently.

The third "big" name should be former AC Milan Youth Team's defender Matteo Darmian, currently playing at Torino. He would be the much needed reinforcement for our biggest weakness, our defense, and the first piece of a solid Italian core as suggested by president Silvio Berlusconi.

€ 150m for the transfer market

Three important additions to the roster and a huge budget for this summer calciomercato. Zio Fester is going all in: € 150m are a lot of money and should be what Milan need to rebuild a competitive team.

Ancelotti's future is still uncertain and full of question marks, but maybe his heart will play a major role in this decision and will drive him back to Milan for the next season.
