Milan are preparing a bid for Italy u21 Midffelder, who is considered as the back-up for Pirlo...

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.

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.

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..

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

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.
