The 20 year old Italian defender Alessio Romagnoli has already completed his transfer from As.Roma over to Ac.Milan for a transfer fee of €25 million and the vice-president of Ac.Milan Adriano Galliani has announced that the summer transfer activities of the club is over.
Ac.Milan’s Adriano Galliani said: “I think that our transfer market ends here, even though interesting options can always occur. We don’t need a midfielder or more options in any other position; we’re well covered in all areas. I don’t think PSG will let Ibra leave, but if they do then we will try to sign him.”
This summer transfer window of Ac.Milan has seen the Italian club signing a few high profile players including: Carlos Bacca, Luis Adriano, Andrea Bertolacci and more recently Alessio Romagnoli.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic was a player who was rumored of being signed by Ac.Milan but from the looks of it, the transfer will not happen as Ibrahimovic recently said that he is happy in Paris Saint-German and wants to continue performing with the French club for at least another season.

Croatia will play their important Euro 2016 qualifying match against Italy behind closed doors after being given a ban by UEFA for the recent crowd trouble.
This is likely to place the 2006 world champions as the favourites to get three points. Croatia would have had a great chance of maintaining their advantage in the group had it not been for the lack of home support. They have been surprise leaders in the group H after poor form shown by Italy during the first few qualifying matches. Even after the arrival of former Juventus boss Antonio Conte, the team struggled to get results.
Croatia have taken advantage of this and have shot into the top of the table. Even a second place finish will be enough to qualify for the finals, but finishing top of the group will have its own advantage. Ahead of the match, Croatia manager Niko Kovac has claimed that there are no favourites between his team and the Italians. The table leaders have prepared well for this match after getting a convincing 4-0 win over Gibraltar in a recent friendly. However, there are doubts surrounding the fitness of some key players like Luka Modric. Even a draw will be seen as a good result by the Croatians.

A small group of Hajduk Split hooligans caused damage after attacking a delegation of the Croatian football Federation.
This attack has raised questions about the safety of footballers visiting the country. National team manager Niko Kovac has condemned the attacks saying that this places a lot of negativity upon Croatian football as a whole. Since qualifying for the Euro 2008 by beating England, Croatia have been on a high. This has gone down of late due to infighting and poor form shown by the national team itself. Even though none were injured in the attack, it has raised the possibility of future delegations being cancelled.
Kovac says the attackers should have a moral responsibility to help the country as a whole. He has refused to take the limelight for criticising the incident in a public manner. Croatia have been enjoying a good run of form of late on the pitch. Apart from the friendly defeat against Argentina, they have had excellent results particularly in the 1-1 draw with Italy back in November. Their team continued to build on the strong performance in the qualifying by getting a thumping 5-1 success over Norway to go top of their group. Croatia now have 13 points and a two-point advantage over second placed Italy. Read more “Hajduk Split hooligans caused damage after attacking a delegation”
