Galliani admits Milan must offload before adding to squad

Adriano Galliani admits Milan are unlikely to make any more signings when the transfer window reopens, unless they first offload.

The Rossoneri have already secured the loan signing of defender Adil Rami, who will link up from Valencia in January, and also midfielder Keisuke Honda, who has agreed a four-year contract and will arrive from CSKA Moscow at the same time.

However, with league results disappointing this season, fans are anxious for coach Massimiliano Allegri to add more quality to his options. But Galliani has dampened such optimism, by revealing that unless they can offload players from their current squad, there will be no more additions at least until the summer window.

“We have a big squad, 31 players with Adil Rami and Keisuke Honda,” the Milan vice-president said on Monday afternoon. “If no one leaves, no one comes in. A swap deal would be a possibility for a midfielder, but we’ll have to wait and see.”

Milan are currently 12th in the Serie A standings after 15 rounds of fixtures. They have won just four times and have suffered five defeats, leaving them a staggering 25 points behind leaders Juventus. They do have a game in hand, though, and this comes on Monday evening when they take on unbeaten Roma at the San Siro.
