Monza for the first time will play the Serie A championship. Since Berlusconi came with Galliani, the Brianza club has changed its horizon and even its status. In four years, Monza have achieved two promotions and want to make a good impression in Serie A.
Officially the goal is that of a smooth escape, the dream is that of the top ten. Meanwhile, the Monza market was amazing. Five great players have already arrived and it can be said that the best is yet to come.
Facts and not just words. There have been many names combined or side by side with Monza, but beyond the gap in the market and the numerous sketchy negotiations, real or supposed, of negotiations Galliani and sporting director Antonelli have closed many, already five.
One hit after another for Stroppa, who will find himself working with a revolutionized team compared to the one he had last season, which ended with the great success in the playoff final against Pisa.
Monza has strengthened itself first of all by buying a goalkeeper, even if it redeemed Di Gregorio, the owner last year. The Brianza leaders have taken Cagliari’s number one, Alessio Cragno, a trusted goalkeeper who also boasts 2 caps, on loan with an obligation to repay in the event of a bailout.
The defender Carboni has also arrived from Cagliari, received for 4 million plus bonuses. Carboni has signed a five-year contract. The first strike was actually Andrea Ranocchia, a former Inter captain who was free. An experienced, reliable player, born in 1988, who will make a contribution to a team that needs players who know the category well.
Stefano Sensi has also been taken over by Inter and has reflected a bit on Monza’s proposal before saying yes. Monza has loaned him out and hopes Sensi will be able to bounce back after a few bad years.
Atalanta’s midfielder, Pessina, has finally been taken. Galliani loved him a lot, because the midfielder started with Monza’s youth team, before moving to Milan, but he flourished with Atalanta. The European champion with Mancini’s Italy, Pessina was bought with the formula of a heavy loan, set at 3 million, with the obligation to buy (at 12 million euros) in case of rescue. Five shots and it’s not over.
Meanwhile, Birindelli, the son of art, who challenged Monza in the playoff final, is in the eye, but the defense also likes Niccolò Casale, defender of Verona, who was also the target of Napoli and Lazio. For the defense, Oscar Mingueza of Barcelona and Ahyan of Sassuolo are also followed.
But Monza also dreams, or above all, of the big shot. In recent days, there has been talk about Dybala, who is still without a team after leaving Juventus. The Argentine seemed to be one step away from Inter, but the negotiations were not formalized, then he was joined by Milan and Roma, as well as Manchester United.
Monza is there, alert. Galliani, who has made countless high-profile hits in the market, is above all closely following Mauro Icardi. The first contacts with the Argentinian’s agent, Wanda Nara, would have already taken place.
It is not easy to close the negotiations with PSG and above all with the player, considering the salary he receives, but negotiations like this can be unlocked maybe at the end of the market and therefore who knows that at the end of August Monza will not to be able to launch the decisive attack for the Argentinian bomber.
