Mourinho: If he go away, he would have a better chance to play in these months and in World Cup. If he stays, he will play at Sunday against Stoke but if there will be an opportunity for him to go away and be more happy, then we will have to show respect for his choice.

It seems its all done.. according to Gazzetta.it.. he will be great addition for the Champions League.. he has experience.. but I have seen Chelsea this season .. he didnt impress me at all.. and he rarely played from the 1st minute.. I am 50-50 for this transfer..

May this go exactly the van Bommel way and not the Zaccardo way.

It's a free transfer according to reports...again Galliani masterstroke but which will come back to haunt us in coming years with no suitors for him...

Milan contacted Chelsea for @MichaelEssien on January 7, and Seedorf spoke on the phone with the player a few days ago. #WelcomeEssien

And
Giannino
Galliani and Essien are expected to have dinner tonight at Giannino.

Welcome.
Wish you all the best. All the moaning should be taken to B&G thread, don't hate on Essien.

Rumored wage 2.5m (reduced from 5m) and a free transfer fee. Not that bad

Essien replacing Nocerino. Difficult to hate that. Rather neither (injury) on the pitch than Nocerino (awful).

He will join on free transfer. I just hope he's wage aint too high otherwise he is a fine player to have. Who will he challenge? We already got Muntari, Cristante, Monto, DJ, Poli and Sapanara on the midfield. I guess our tac is 4-2-3-1 so.. I don't get it.

* Nocerino is on for West Ham

Montolivo-De Jong (Cristante-Essien). If Poli can somehow find his feet on the wing, we'll have a pretty good squad in the midfield and attack.

Mario Melchiot will never know that a speculative thread started by him in a different club's forum became an official sticky thread.

didn't take long for him to become inactive after he started this thread.

I'll bet that he'll come back for a "I told you so".
