FOR BIG TEAMS, MODERN FOOTBALL IS GETTING DEPRESSIVE

The only thing constant in life is change yet no one likes change. Of course, people want their life to change for the better but are they willing to change their behaviours inorder to get that better life?

Albertini thinks the club needs to sign top players

Former AC Milan midfielder Demetrio Albertini says that it is about time that the club considered signing top players in the market. He has said that players like Michael Essien and Philippe Mexes should be sold in the January in order to make way for Sami Khedira. Essien was brought from Chelsea on a free transfer last January, while former Roma star Philippe Mexes has struggled to live up to his billing in the last few years. Apart from costing money in the form of wages, these players are also not contributing enough on the pitch according to Albertini.

Sami Khedira has proven to be a top player in the last five years. He is widely believed to be on the verge of leaving Real Madrid on a free transfer. The World Cup winner has only a few months left on his contract and negotiations have hit an impasse. Even though a number of clubs are reportedly looking at Khedira, Albertini believes that the prospect of regular football at a prestigious club like Milan will make things easy for the Rossoneri. Milan only recently brought in players like Fernando Torres, which has significantly boosted the strength on the pitch.

It is rumoured that Madrid would consider selling Khedira in January rather than allow him to leave on a free transfer. “Milan could carry out a series of releases – naturally or immediately, because some big contracts are expiring – so that they could focus all of their economic power on this deal. Khedira would represent a serious and solid investment, capable of resolving most of the structural problems of a team that can and should still be considered a work in progress. He’s a true champion. He’s experienced and thus able to take on the important responsibilities of every position in midfield,” said Albertini.
