Montolivo is dubbed the next Pirlo. Has awesome technique. Good shot with both feet, intellegent passer, nice control... and unlike Pirlo he can defend well. Such an elegant player. It's just a matter of time till Aquilani and himself establish themselves as first team regulars for the national team.

was definitely my first pick on fm2005 and fm2006. Dont know much else about him in real life. never seen him play.

milanissimo 13-12-2006 15:19

damn it`s boring, he is at least 1000 player linked with ac milan in the last two months :mad:

Fiore 13-12-2006 20:33

Afaik he's more of an attacking midfielder and could replace Seedorf in the future. Alongside with Pazzini they're the future of Italian football. Would be a great addition.

hmmm i see montolivo as a replacement for totti, aquilani resembles pirlo more and he lies back more, montolivo plays il trequartista which would put him behing the attackers. we could get him and use him and brocchi as two centrals

And where would this leave the likes of Kaka and Pirlo?

As that other quality attacking option we need Montolivo would be an excellent choice, however I believe it would take a large sum of money to prize him away from La Viola as he is rated very highly and is one for the future. If Milan plan on going through a mini-revolution whether in January or the end of season Montolivo is one player I hope we would look at.

Montolivo plays the same way as Pirlo. He drops deep in defense at times and searches for the ball. He tends to push forward when the time is right, and can play in a host of positions in the central of the park.

Although Montolivo has great promise he still needs time to blosom. He lacks consistency at times and during the game he will have excellent 10min patches then drop the level of intensity and begin to make mistakes. For the time being he should remain at Fiorentina where he will be guarenteed a first team spot inorder to help him matture as a consistent performer.

LOL Sheva's not fast...He's too slow for the English game which is why he's doing so bad.So if he's fast as Sheva that's nothing too postitive.

ics_rk 14-12-2006 12:41

I don't think Montolivo is a defensive midfielder, he will be a good replacement for Seedorf. About the news, since I don't read the news in Channel4, I don't think the news is correct..

Cassius 15-12-2006 00:43

Just another useless press statement there will be 1001 just like it untill the january market starts then it really heats up .. then we all get a reality check and find out We didn't sign any players... then new speculations on Ronis arrival in the summer start ... as thet sat PLAY IT AGAIN SAM... !!

tassard 15-12-2006 11:36

Montolivo is surely not a replacement for Pirlo.If he is to replace someone, he is Seedorf.

Wild 15-12-2006 18:01

As long as Seedorf or Pirlo r gonna b replaced then bring the guy. :)

Why replace them? I think we should bring in some quality players to challenge them if anything as they are both good players. Montolivo has the ability to fit that bill but he is still relatively young and inexperienced unfortunately. I want to see how he will do at Fiorentina this year.

Mr. Milanista 25-12-2010 21:35

We should bring this guy, really good player.

Eccolo 25-12-2010 21:38

Dont think we have been linked to him recently. I like old monty but he has a habbit to vanish in big games and is inconsistent
