Apologies if there is already a thread on this, I couldn't find it. I've been really impressed by the 3 AC Milan signings so far. Looks like they're on the way back up.

It'd be nice to see Juventus get a proper challenge in the Serie A and to have the Milan clubs doing well in the Champions League again.

Agreed. I think AC will be around 2nd/3rd fighting with Napoli. I think Roma are lacking a bit of quality to contend, especially if Salah and Naingolan (sp) leave.

More broadly I'd just love to see a strong Serie A again. As well as Juve, Roma, Napoli and the Milan boys, it used to be great watching the likes of Fiorentina, Lazio and Parma challenge too.

 

It'd  be interesting to see if Sassuolo will ever reach the Champions League.

What is it with Sassuolo? 

 

Really naive of me but I'd not heard of them until building an Italian team on FIFA and realised they've got a good crop of Italian talent (if they game is anything to go by).

 

Are they historically a challenger?

Sassuolo are a bit like a Bournemouth kind of side.

Nope. Tinpot club that have worked their way up and done really well with a policy of cultivating decent young players.

So tinpot they have even left their own town, it's worth adding. They're bankrolled by the Mapei brand, I do however, have a lot of time for the green and black stripes.

Interestingly Sassuolo's manager Eusebio Di Francesco has left for Roma today

 

Milan's transfers have been quite shrewd but I'd still fancy Napoli and Roma to be Juve's closest challengers

Bayern strengthening well as hard as that seems, with Tolisso and Sule. Excellent signings.

With Donnarumma stating he'all not be signing a contract, anyone thing AC might look at Schmeichel?

Apparently Lewandowski wants out of Bayern, because he felt he weren't supported in trying to win the golden boot. Chelsea and United interested in him. Think we could sneak a bid in there.

Scouted him when he was at Legia, yeah? Weren't Blackburn close to getting him at one point too, but his flight was cancelled because of a Volcano erupting, and all the ash in the air or something?

Linfield due to host Celtic on July 11th, the day before the Proddy marches. 10,000 + bhoys expected in Belfast.

Could be one to avoid!

That could be quite tasty yes. I heard police might get it moved though?

AC have bought Calhanoglu in now as well. Monchegladbach have signed Ginter from Dortmund (subject to a medical) presumably to replace Christiansen who has now returned to Chelsea..

Bayern got James Rodriguez on a 2 year loan deal similar to what they had with Coman.

With the option of buying for €35m apparently. If true that's outrageous.

Any idea how much they're paying for the loan itself?
