Regarding Milan, the Rossoneri did tried weeks ago to sign both Keita and Biglia as a package together in an operation worth 50 million euros (Biglia was then signed for 20 million). In the last few hours, the Rossoneri have returned to offer that does not include cash, just counterparts: Keita to Milan in exchange for Palletta (Lazio are already negotiating and Niang (Inzaghi likes Niang as replacement for Keita). An interesting suggestion that could please all parties involved.
