Allegri fears Pazzini's Inter

Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri says Inter will pose much more of a title threat now that they have signed Giampaolo Pazzini from Sampdoria.

The 26-year-old Italy international completed a medical this morning and moves to San Siro in a transfer worth €12m in cash.

Jonathan Biabiany has also been included in the deal. He joins Sampdoria in part-exchange.

"Pazzini reinforces Inter's attack which was already very strong," Allegri said.

'Milan insist for Criscito'

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi claims Milan are determined to sign Domenico Criscito before the end of the January transfer window.

It's no secret that Milan would like to bring in a new full-back for the second half of the season.

Earlier this week, Adriano Galliani told reporters that he would try to buy one at the request of Max Allegri.

Criscito has long been Milan's No 1 choice for the position although Genoa aren't prepared to sell until the end of the season.

The Brazilian heir to Desailly

James Horncastle reports on Max Allegri's latest tactical move, which could see Thiago Silva become the next Marcel Desailly

It was the 69th minute of the 1995 Champions League Final and Ajax were playing Fabio Capello's all-consuming Milan. "I suffer from asthma," Litmanen sighed. When asked to explain what that had anything to do with it, he replied: "They put Desailly on me and Desailly is a tough marker."
