how is that the same?

just like Jack had some critics last year, Bertolacci would be a good signing
Similar isnt the same in my dictionary.

Bertolacci is more AM than CM...both are all rounder, nothing special.

Bertolacci may very well be a must sign player, considering everything. He could be to us for the next five years, what Marchisio is to Juve.

Both Bona and Bertolacci are AM/wingers "converted" to deeper roles. Bertolacci played as AM/second striker in the season Genoa almost got relegated... One of the few players who did well that season.

They both have trouble defensively, that they sort of make for it with running.

Bertolacci plays a heavier game though. He's more natural to CM than Bonaventura.


We got many players leaving and we will need depth. Bertolacci will be at least very useful

Exacly, man

He has been playing as a CM for Genoa since last season. Every single game this year hes played was as one of the CM's in a 2 man midfield (343). He is a CM, an offensive minded one

I don't think we would be buying Bertolacci for depth.



Bertolacci-NDJ-Montolivo


I can't see that turn out well.

The way Genoa plays their CMs aren't involved at all in the build up , he is a good player but the priority should be a real CM.

Genoa's half is said to be worth 5-7m, and who knows how much Roma will demand since they want to keep him? Milan won't be paying +- 12m for a depth player, Bertolacci is good enough to start. The dream would be 1 big CM + Bertolacci, seems to want Kondogbia

Anyways Sky reported Atletico have entered the race to sign him

I've heard Roma wants to keep him, so if Genoa is willing to sell half for 6mil, I see Roma asking for 10m.
He's good, but not 16m good.

@Milanello: Milan are still very interested in signing Bertolacci (co-owned by Genoa & Roma). Galliani spoke about him again with Preziosi today. [Sky]

The rumours are not dead!

Milan?s Galliani contacts Genoa about midfielder Bertolacci
Quote:
Milan is targeting many players to get back to the top. After Ibrahimovic, Jackson Martinez and Miranda the rossoneri's next target is Genoa midfielder Bertolacci. Galliani contacted Genoa today about him, the rossoneri are very interested in him and they are willing to invest in him for the future. However before Milan can take the next step, Bertolacci's co ownership between Roma and Genoa needs to be resolved, which is a big hurdle for the rossoneri considering that Roma is determined to bring Bertolacci back to Italy's capital.

This guy could end up being our best signing sul campo in this high profile transfer window.

A lot of these deals will depend on the midfield transfers of Roma and Juventus.
One between Bertolacci and Nainggolan is staying at Roma, there's no way in hell that Roma is losing both midfielders, though depending on how good Strootman is physically, Roma might buy both midfielders. It will get some cash from Gervinho and maybe some cash from Pjanic (or Strootman if Van Gaal is still interested).

On the other hand, now that they bought Khedira, Juventus will press for Nainggolan only if they sell one of Vidal/Pogba or if Pirlo leaves.
Too many ifs, personally I think there's at most 25% chance of getting Bertolacci.

A midfield of Bonaventura, Montolivo, Bertolacci would be an upgrade over Muntari De Jong Poli that we had this season, especially in terms of ball control and creativity.

I also doubt we'll get both Bertolacci and Kondogbia especially if we're gonna play a 4-2-3-1 as mentioned in some media (though doubt Berlusconi will like a formation without two strikers)

I think him + Ibra would be quite a nice combo.

If Ibra managed to help Noce reach the Azzurri, I can't imagine what he could do with Bertolacci
