Will I regret my post a few posts above if I now say "Yessien we can!"?

Thread re-opened.

Asked a Madrid fanatic about his impact last season. Says he was decent when he played in Mourinho' 4-3-3. Danger of course being his tendency to break down if played too much.

Will be signed. 99 % sure of it. Galliani loves these kinds of buys.

I heard that Gianni rivera is willing to help ac Milan. go and sign him! very likely will sign Cristiano Ronaldo when he will be 65, and he will want to come to Milano to bang some under age girls....
milanello = elephants cemetery....

AC Milan News ‏@Milanello

Essien won't join Milan on loan. Galliani and the player's agents have been talking about a permanent deal to June 30, 2015.

Essien's agent and the intermediary have travelled back to London. They will meet with Chelsea tomorrow.

Galliani and Essien's agents want Chelsea to release the player for free. Further talks tomorrow.

Hopefully we aren't stupid enough to let De Jong go with interest from Liverpool.
Considering how poorly we defend, in the right circumstances this can be a smart buy.
Alongside De Jong, that's as good a protection as we can expect at the minute.

Abate-Rami-???--Abate
De Jong----Essien----
----------Monto-----------
----Kaka----Honda-----
---------Balo--------------

It'll allow Montolivo the freedom to push forward and use his passing to better effect. We've clearly lacked that final killer pass lately. He's smart/capable enough to know when to push back and help out defensively.

Essien know his job very well. Like MVB, but MVB was a great passer too.
Abate and De Sciglio will be urged to push on more with that protection of De Jong and Essien.

regarding essien's low playing time this season..mou obivously has no plans for him, they've got loads of other players that can play cdms which i suppose mourinho trusts more so thats why he doesnt play at all..but looking at 12/13 season at real madrid:
Michael Essien was part of the club's lineup 28 times. He was 19 times in the starting team, got substituted in 2 time(s) and stayed on the bench 7 time(s).
12 times played a cdm, 5 times as rb and twice as lb. thats for la liga..as for ucl:
Michael Essien was part of the club's lineup 8 times. He was 6 times in the starting team, got substituted in 1 time(s) and stayed on the bench 1 time(s).
played against borussia 3 times, twice against galatasaray, and once against man utd, ajax and man city. 3 appearances as rb, one as lb, one as cm and two as cdm.
copa del rey:
Michael Essien was part of the club's lineup 7 times. He was 6 times in the starting team, got substituted in 1 time(s).

so he got a total of 2689 playing minutes, scored 2 goals, got one assist, 7 yellow cards and made a total of 35 appearances.
and he might be injury prone or whatever but his last injury was back in december 2011. since then he had a successful second part of the season with chelsea and an injury-free season with real madrid...

anyways he's waaaay better then muntari..essien comes, we offload muntari and voila!

July 2014. Nocerino returns from loan, as does anyone who has been loaned out. Essien is still here, since Galliani decided to buy him outright instead of loaning him. Galliani complains about having a 32 players squad and says we can't buy anyone because of that. One year later Milan as always still has around 30 players in the squad.
