Default Official: Andrea Bertolacci Thread


Full name:
Andrea Bertolacci
Date of birth: 11 January 1991 (age 24)
Place of birth: Rome, Italy
Height: 1.79 m (5 ft 10 1⁄2 in)
Playing position: CM / AM (Midfielder)





We've been linked to him for years, but rumours seem to be getting more serious now
I loved him at his Lecce period and he has grown a lot since then
I think it's fair to have some doubts about him being good enough for Milan tho
He's a great passer and plays with a lot of passion on the field
So far he only has 2 caps for gli Azzurri, but he made in the current selection
There is competition from Roma, but it seems he prefers Milan over them

He'd be a good addition to the team: still young, quite skilled + plays with a lot of heart

Re the price: It was rumored Genoa's half will cost around 6m, although Zapata could be included. Roma own the 2nd half and would like to bring him back, possibly to replace Pjanic who could be leaving.

How is he defensively?(please don't post tackles & interceptions avg)

6 goals and 8 assists is veery good, but CMs with those numbers tend to play very advanced, leave holes behind and generally not think like a midfielder.

It seems he also works hard off ball, but the same goes for Bonaventura, who is not really a CM.


For the midfield, I'd rather get a proper B2B and/or anchor than an AM.

defensive not the best at his position, but definitely not as offensive like Bonaventura
he mainly plays as CM (right & left), he loves to make his rushes with the ball

We already have jack, bertolacci is similar to him...we need an anchor like xabi and a runner like khedira. We need mids with different characteristics. But u know our management...they will looking for defence and attack.

Bona is an LM/LW or AM
Bertolacci is an CM

how is that the same?

just like Jack had some critics last year, Bertolacci would be a good signing

Bona needs a better coach and a bit more time in midfield to get used to the position. He has all the tools to be a great all-rounder.

He is flexible, but i don't think he is quite quick enough to play on the wing, or have as much vision as is required to be AM. He can definitely play there if it is needed, but shouldn't be a starter as LW or AM.
