Adriano Galliani has tempered reports on Milan signing Michael Agazzi, praised Atletico Madrid and enthused at the Rossoneri’s progress.
Reports yesterday indicated that a deal to pick up goalkeeper Agazzi at the end of his Cagliari contract in the summer has been agreed.
Whilst the Gazzetta dello Sport add further this morning that the agreement is for a two-year contract from June through to the end of the 2015-16 season, Milan’s Vice-President has played speculation down.
“Agazzi is a hypothesis, but it is not true that a deal is already done,” Galliani has told gathered reporters today.
“He is a player at the end of his contract, we will evaluate and see come the first of July.”
Meanwhile, Sunday also saw Coach Clarence Seedorf in the Spanish capital to catch Atletico Madrid against Real Sociedad, ahead of the Rossoneri’s Champions League Last 16 meeting last this month with Diego Simeone’s side.
“I have not spoken to Clarence yet, he must return from Spain, last night I saw a little of La Liga. Atletico are demonstrating an extraordinary athletic condition, they have a great Coach.
“From the beginning of the season they have done very well, in their minds, something super.”
Milan drew 1-1 at home to Torino in Week 22 and remain six points adrift of the European qualification positions.
“Too bad that those in third, fourth and fifth lost, if we had won then we would have shortened the gap a little bit. It did not happen, we hope it will in the coming weeks.
“Is the team less daring? I am not the Coach, ask Clarence.
“The team seems to be changing, they are doing everything well, we have changed formation, the players are applying themselves and we are very satisfied.”
