Galliani: Serie A clubs cannot attract top players anymore

The Rossoneri chief agreed with the notion that Italian teams are no longer an appealing destination, but stated that Milan will build a team around young talent
AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has admitted that Serie A clubs are no longer attractive to the world's finest players.

The Rossoneri have just recently sold Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva to Paris Saint-Germain in order to balance their books, with the club's financial problems well documented.

The Swedish striker's agent, Mino Raiola, claimed that the top players in the world will no longer arrive in Italy and that it is time for Serie A clubs to change their mentality, which is an opinion supported by Galliani.

"I agree with Mino Raiola, who says that top players are no longer coming to Italy," Galliani told reporters. "The top players no longer come, but we can form a team. We see they are not arriving, but we will see what we can do."

Milan has so far spent little over 4 million euros in summer transfers, having signed Kevin Constant, Francesco Acerbi, Gabriel, Riccardo Montolivo and Bakaye Traore.
