Montella: 'No signings, no problem'

Milan Coach Vincenzo Montella admits that 'he would be happy' with the current squad, should the club fail to bring in reinforcements in January.

The club are in the midst of agreeing a takeover with Chinese investors, which will now not be completed until after the current transfer window closes.

His side will take on Torino in the last 16 of the Coppa Italia on Thursday, with the boss having confimed that there will be no major changes for the game.

"The financial statements are made at year-end, we are only at the halfway point," Montella continued in his pre match Press-conference.

"So many players have grown and have surprised me, if I have to name someone, I would say [Ignazio] Abate, who is the captain.

"We must think only of the league and the Coppa Italia, the victory in the Super Cup is behind us now.

"I always discuss the market with [Adriano] Galliani, it falls to me to say what we need technically but I must always take into account the financial aspect.

"If there is chance we will improve the squad, but I would be happy if the group remained as it is."

Milan have signed veteran goalkeeper Marco Storari this week, with Brazilian stopper Gabriel moving in the opposite direction. What are Montella's thoughts on this?

"Storari? I've known him a long time, we wanted to send Gabriel to play and then we learned of this possibility.

"Marco knows the environment and can be important both on and off the field."
