Up He GetsFootball at times can pretty much reflect how fast things can change in life as this pretty much what happened to Ac Milan regarding their transfer policy as from being an offense oriented in the transfer market, the Rossoneri reportedly have gone to their defensive part after the latest 4-4 draw against Udinese.

Press in Italy have now constantly linking the fashion capital team with host of potential new defenders from the likes of Philipe Mexes, Fabio Coentrao, Jose Bosingwa and also Domenico Criscito.

From those four names, Criscito is the current name that is being raved in the newspaper all around Italy especially considering the good relationship between the Rossoneri and the player’s owner, Genoa, this season. The possibility for the Italian international to sign for Milan recently emerged even stronger after the Griffone acquired the service of Luca Antonelli, who also plays on the same position as Criscito normally played at the club.

Although recently, Genoa’s president, Enrico Preziosi already released a statement saying that Criscito won’t be going anywhere, the press believes that Milan’s offer could really make the patron rule out his decision just as what happened with one of the players Andrea Ranocchia earlier this month.
