Well Milan, surprise Sassuolo, Inter so-so. Are the indications coming from the Tim Trophy won by the Rossoneri after the victory in regular time against the cousins Nerazzurri and that on penalties with Emilian. Many question marks for Mancini’s men defeated twice and still far from his best form. The star of the evening was Carlos Bacca, who arrived at Milanello after an extraordinary season in Seville. Mihajlovic smiles but is exalted: “I want to win the derby, the real one, the third day of the championship.” Mancini shrugs instead: “If I have to worry Tim Trophy …”. And yet – in these fires end of August football – AC Milan seems more “team”: play with intensity and nastiness, showing a hunger for victory that bodes well for the fans a few days before the start of the championship. Newcomers impress, Bertolacci marks, Berry scored in and gives assists. Nocerino is revived and makes a difference in the match against Sassuolo.
The Rossoneri defense is enhanced by Romagnoli which comes with a save on the line, avoiding Inter to equalize. In short, Milan is there and confirms the eve’s ambitions. If we were to get even Ibrahimovic, the championship could far more than a dream. It is just a hypothesis, as confirmed by Adriano Galliani: “If PSG let him go, we are there. I don’t do any percentage cause the player still has a year contract with PSG then I say that the time is not ‘feasible . But… we will be careful.” “If I were to make predictions – he added – I would say no, but the market is weird. I do belive that we don’t need anything, we’re covered in all roles. We stop here, at this moment the market is closed but can open unpredictable solutions. In late August we will see. A rating for market of Milan? It’s up to fans and journalists to give, but the president Berlusconi made a great economic effort. ”
