Zapata would be a great signing.
The only problem is his consistency.
But imagine the pairing of Silva and Zapata.
Scary, very scary. both fast and athletic.

Zapata. Yes please. He will solve many issues in the team.

1. He's only 24 and was the league's second best CB according to many experts. Him in means, once Nesta retires, we won't have to worry about finding a replacement then.

Silva/Nesta/Zapata/Mexes/Yepes - Best CB combo in the world.

2. The guy can play as a fullback on both the sides too . With our CB depth we can easily play him as a replacement for Abate or Taiwo if either one is missing due to injuries/suspensions. With Zambrotta also capable of playing in the both flanks as a substitute

our fullback line up will be

Abate/Taiwo/Zambrotta/Zapata (with both the subs capable of playing both sides which is great).

This means 1). No Maxwell 2). Bonera,Oddo, Antonini - all the fodder defenders can leave in 1 single Galliani moment of genius.

And AC Milan will have a defensive lineup of Abate, Silva, Nesta, Taiwo, Zapata, Mexes, Zambrotta, Yepes (8 quality defenders with 0 fodder players which will be a first in many many years).

Get it done G !!!!

He is a very good defender so... Galliani get him... Yepes, Nesta and Zambrotta will all probably leave at the end of the season... Maybe Nesta stays one year longer, but i doubt it... Then we would have Silva, Mexes, Zapata, Taiwo, Abate all left... We buy a new defender, upgrade Ely to the 1st Team... ZAPATA IS THE SHIT !!!

Read that Arsenal and Milan are currently interested in him and either party wants to deal before the Copa America because his price is likely to go up after. I hope we try at the very least.

yes yes yes great purchase. silva will obviously keep his starting spot, and we need a player who can take over after nesta in a year, yepes also has a year, and mexes will recover by preseason but will probably struggle for a while after that to recover full mobility and speed.

if zapata comes he can be 3rd cb and allow nesta to be rested often to keep him injury free and at his best, with only a little drop in quality, nesta is still a supreme leader in defence and his anticipation is as good as ever but he's lost a couple of steps. it will improve the understanding between silva and zapata and hopefully make silva more of a leader for 2013 season.

That backline does not require a midfield to protect it, that's for sure...

Milan, Zapata alternative to Astori

Quote:
As reported by Sportmediaset , Milan Cristian Zapata of Colombia was identified in the ideal alternative to Davide Astori. The Via Turati club, in fact, still on the trail of central Cagliari, could shift its attention on its Zapata, where the negotiations with Cellino does not take off (probably, you will go to envelopes). The central defender twenty-five, the author of a great season with Udinese, after six years at the Friuli, he might decide to change the air: on him, according to reports, there are also Arsenal and Villarreal.

Taiwo - Silva - Zapata - Abate



This shit just seems to unreal, too un-fucking-real.....

Wouldnt like to overrate it, but it has the potential to get close to the Invincibilis defense...

I like Astori but atm Zapata is on a different level compared to him. He is more closer to reaching WC status than Astori is (not to say that Astori cant do the same). But while Astori's growth has been a slow process, Zapata has been making a name for himself and is constantly rated one of the top CBs in Serie A for a couple of years now...
