The Milan has Thiago but wants to Seydou.
After betting front to strengthen last summer and make a huge investment with the signings of Cesc and Alexis, in which were about 60 million euros, the sporting of Barça's main priority bolster the defense in the face next season.
As reported in its edition of MD on Saturday, Javi Martinez, versatile player in the Athletic Club de Bilbao, is a player who likes a lot, and it could play to perfection in the central positions and the pivote getting the ball played.
Aware of the difficulties inherent in taking the services of the player Basques as the Athletic forwarded to a termination clause amounting to 40 million, the Barça also shuffled other alternatives, and hence the name Thiago Silva holds a preferred position.
As Javi Martínez is also highly prized to be a permanent fixture in Milan and in the 'Seleçao' and its price will decline from 30 million, but the figure of Seydou Keita could be crucial to lower the operation of Thiago Silva.
The Mali midfielder has a firm proposal to play for Milan and is aware that his participation in the club is limited to a particular set of parties, a circumstance that plays against him.
Keita renewed by the club azulgrana until 2014 but signed a clause that would automatically renew at the end of each course, from here to that year provided that played a significant number of matches.
Keita is a player with very good poster and among the many offerings with the account are also clubs like Liverpool, City, Bayern and Anzhi Russian.
In the whole 'rossonero', that of Mali would ensure a greater role within the field as it is recalled that the core of Milan has very veteran players Seedorf (36 years), Gattuso (35) and Van Bommel (34) , already has decided to return to Holland at the conclusion of the season. In addition, Keita would also upgraded its existing emoluments considerably.
Also, if it were not entirely convinced to change teams, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who became good friends in the year that the Swede was in Barça has been charged with asking him to call fiche for Milan.
Accordingly, and knowing that the Lombard club is very interested in taking Keita, Barça may cut quite the signing of Thiago Silva to that of Mali, whose price will decline ever of 10 million euros.
If negotiations with Milan, the Italian club that the club might request an exemption for paying the last of three installments of eight million euros for the transfer of Ibrahimovic, estimated at 24 'kilos'.
However, in the Camp Nou would not accept in any way that the most ruinous operation of the club's history (Ibra took 69.5 million) to stop further burden on the coffers. (via MD)
