Default Rui costa set for Atlettico

I'm so sad about this news and I wish it is just astupid
rumor since Rui costa is wonderful md player and Ancelotti is very
wrong by setting him in bench and as I know his contract with milan tell
2006 do you thing he would break the contract and leave Milan?
in my option if Rui leaves Milan he should not go to Atletico he
should go to benfica (since this his wish)
any way here is the report

Source: Football Italia

Italian champions Milan have reportedly offered Atletico Madrid the services of Manuel Rui Costa.

The ‘AS’ newspaper suggests that the midfielder could complete a switch during the January transfer window.

Rui Costa is said to be unhappy with life on the Rossoneri bench and is willing to leave the outfit.

The Portuguese ace has been relegated to the sidelines for the past 18 months following the arrival of Kaka.

Milan chief Adriano Galliani has allegedly already spoken to the Spanish side to make initial enquiries.

The two clubs have an excellent relationship after the deals involving Jose Mari, Javi Moreno, Cosmin Contra and Fabricio Coloccini in the past five years.

However, it is unclear whether Rui Costa would be willing to move to La Liga in the New Year.

The creative player has always insisted that he would like to end his career with former club Benfica.

The ex-Fiorentina hero is now 32 and is tied to the Italian giants until the summer of 2006.

I don't really think that he will leave.. Milan need him for rotation and I don't think that Rui wants to move.. Maybe a loan spell will happen..

oh man, rui is one of my most favourite player... i wouldnt want him to leave milan besides going back to benfica...

and if he leaves... there is going to be a big hole... as we lack of a good mentor to our dear kaka...

im just suggesting... right now kaka is playing behind to strikers... can we convert him to a shadow striker role... like del piero's role... and play rui below... kaka-sheva...

it would be great... plus i dont know whether you notice this... kaka actually get to move and swoosh his magic when rui costa plays...

sigh...

Crespo is coming into form. playing Sheva and Crespo upfront may prove to be quite fruitful. Kaka' should remain in current position for the time being I think.

i don't remember who said it, but jon tomasson has explained that when the rumours about him was out, was the response to jon from coach or something, that they weren't going to sell either of their players, especially not their strikers.

So...

IF this is actually true, then Milan isn't stupid enough to just leave a big gap there.

This translates to that, MAYBE Milan is planning to sign or already has signed a world-class midfielder....maybe somebody like Totti??

But I do agree that Rui isn't as good as he once was. This was evident in the Euro 2004 tournament as Rui was on the bench most of the time..and one of the great things he ever did was score that nice goal against England. (Correct me if I'm wrong... )

So IF he's leaving, then who's gonna replace him and provide those beautiful assists to Superpippo?

An average of 5,68 is not that bad when you consider he often plays 10 to 20 minutes. The matches he started he usually got a quoation of 6,5 to 7 !

There was talk of Rui going to Atletico as part of a player + cash deal involving Fernando Torres. Not sure if that is still the case? Through the years Rui has been a good player for Milan, but the lack of goals crucified the side. In the last year and a half Kaka has showed that a player in the playmaking (disregard the defensively orientated deep playmaking role of Pirlo) role must be able to score goals - something Rui couldn't do.

2 goals/ season isn't enough for an AM. He must go. I'd like Van der Vaart in his place. I'm not saying Ronaldinho or Totti cause that would be impossible. Ahh, and maybe you're wondering where Kaka would go. I'd like to see him play on the right, like at Sao Paolo. His speed would do great on the wing!

Surely 2 goals/season isn't enough but consider his assist. How many assist does he make in a season? I also prefer van der Vaart but I think Rui is still a good player at least for backup and Rui can accept it! Kaka in the right.. dunno but there will be fewer space for him in the right side and that can prevent his dribbling ability..
