Zubizarreta already know that the defense is finally on the market, although its pricing is almost prohibitive.
Milan has shown signs of life and I understand that the Brazilian center-back is not transferable. Thiago Silva can leave but its price is soaring. The vice president, Adriano Galliani, play all the cards possible in anticipation of multiple scenarios. Yesterday Tuttosport still assured that "I have to resist the assaults on Thiago Silva. There is a row of clubs across Europe who are willing to do crazy things for the Brazilian, "but the truth is that the club already has a first counter if you want to attach to your most coveted piece in the summer market: Thiago Alcántara and a figure approximately 10 million euros.
Neither the name nor the price chosen rounding are frivolous from the perspective Rossoneri. Galliani has Thiago at the point of view in a while. Whether in the form of assignment or transfer, Barça knows that the older brother Alcantara dazzles in Milanello. Last summer was the Rossoneri chief executive who declared his passion to Sky Sports 24. "I spoke with the representative of Thiago, who is on holiday in Forte dei Marmi, but Barcelona will not let him go." And now I try again.
The Milan has become the exchange of players in an art in recent seasons. Manages the change of picture cards with ease and great friendship has grown with major European clubs. And the club, with Ibrahimovic, Kluivert, Reiziger, Coco, among others, is a clear example.
It's time to measure forces, to use emissaries and pave the way to sit down and negotiate. The decisive moves will not arrive until the dispute of the final of the Copa del Rey. Barça has been concerned with various consultants use to convey the will of Thiago Silva to tax at 20 million euros plus the odd player, Ibrahim Afellay profile. Milan, as a likeness, has picked up the gauntlet and has also used external channels to express discontent and small replicate using a similar formula. The counter requires an economic amount of 10 million plus a player, although in this case it is Thiago Alcántara, the old dream of Galliani.
At bottom, the figures come into balance, but very differently. The estimated market in crisis Thiago Silva has an approximate value of just over 30 million euros while Thiago Alcantara reaches 20 'kilos', despite being on the increase.
The operation seems difficult to achieve under these conditions. The Milan is aware that Thiago Alcántara is not on the short list of transferable Blaugrana players and the roster of players in the center of the field is wide and great quality, but the youth of hispanobrasileño make it a coveted piece facing the future.
Not yet time to capture in writing and sit down and negotiate the respective formal offers. It's time for the denials, to divert attention and aerate the zero interest in a transaction such as Thiago Silva. The negotiation stage will completely change in a week.
Ibra may hold the key to the operation
The transfer of Ibrahimovic to Milan may have one of the keys of the operation. In the classic dance of millions, offers and counteroffers, Barça always puts a bullet in the chamber of the first caliber. And is that the club has yet to receive the third installment payment of the progress of the Swedish. That is, the Milan should at least eight million euros. This is a respectable amount when you consider that the market continues to repeat that Berlusconi and Galliani cash goes stiff. In fact, the reinforcements announced in recent days, Ricardo Montolivo and Bakaye Traoré, have signed without any transfer. Van Bommel and Gatuso have found relief at zero cost. The coffers are not going buoyant and the club makes the most of scarce resources at its disposal. The eight million that Milan Ibrahimovic should be opened many doors in a negotiation that is not presumed not easy. (via SPORT)
