Serie A - Galliani: We must sell before we buy

Adriano Galliani has mused that Milan must first ship out ‘two or three players’ before considering bringing in someone like Radja Nainggolan.

Cagliari’s Belgian midfielder has been paired with a move to any one of a number of clubs this January including the Rossoneri.

“Currently our squad is at 30 - we need to thin that out by two or three players, then we will see if a midfielder can arrive,” responded Galliani to reporters.

The Vice-President also commented on Keisuke Honda’s first appearances at Milan’s training facilities over the weekend.

“Honda has visited the medical staff and already has the ability to start training. I have had very good information from our scouts, whilst [Japan Coach Alberto] Zaccheroni has spoken of him very highly.

“I know that he wanted to train since [Saturday], but we have stopped him because in Italy there are very strict conditions on physical fitness. Now he can work out because it is suitable.”
