Milan Join Race To Sign Rafinha From Schalke

rafinhaAccording to the latest reports from website, Milan are set to join the race to sign defender Marcio Rafinha from Schalke 04.

The Rossoneri are in search of a defensive wide-man to help Gianluca Zambrotta, but a deal may not be done until the future of Massimo Oddo is decided.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani stated recently that the team’s summer transfer business was done.

“At this moment in time, our market is closed,” Galliani said.

“We would only look to buy a player if Oddo were to leave Milan.”

Galliani also stated that Kakhaber Kaladze was not on the market, as rumours had been floating with his departure to either Bayern Munich or Lazio.

“Kaladze is not on the market,” Galliani briefly said.

Schalke are asking €10 million for Rafinha, and teams such as Juventus and Barcelona are also interested in signing the 23-year-old.
