A message to new Manager at Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers: Don’t send Andy Carroll on loan to AC Milan!
This is the club under the dubious Berlusconi’s who have pulled a fast one already by not playing Alberto Aquilani in 25 league games.
They cunningly avoided triggering a sell-on clause in Aquilani’s contract by dropping him after 23 appearances, freeing them of the obligation to buy the Italian outright for a £6 million fee.
They then tried to get Aqualani to buy-out his contract at Liverpool for £3 million, that was rejected out of hand by Liverpool’s Ian Ayre, John w. Henry and co.
Now Pier Silvio Berlusconi has stated that he wants Carroll on loan “As a future target I’d like Andy Carroll.
I must admit that, for his body build, and after seeing his header in the Euros, I would like to have Carroll at Milan.
“The Italian giants are now considering a loan move for Carroll, with Berlusconi said to be “seriously considering” taking his son’s advice.
However, citing reports in Italy, it is believed Milan would be unwilling to stump up the cash required for a permanent deal to go through.
I would not loan out Carroll to any club, least of all Milan, who are looking for another cheap deal.
Andy Carroll had a fine end to Liverpool’s Season with his arial ability, physical prowess and a keen eye for goal much in evidence towards the end of last Season added to his fine headed goal in the Euro’s.
New Liverpool boss, Brendan Rodgers has been evasive about the big Geordie:“You sometimes forget how young these people are.
They’re not machines, they are humans. If you move from one part of the country to another, it will take time to adapt.
But with the profile and pressure which is on straight away, obviously it can be very difficult.
“Time will tell for him and all the players whether they are in my plans, but my job is to assess that. “Like every player, there are certain styles and systems they will be playing in which will allow them to flourish.”
It does seem that Rodgers may be reluctant to retain Carroll, so if he is going to go, please don’t sent him out on loan after paying £35 million for the lad and especially not to AC Milan.
