AC Milan moved quickly and found a substitute for Daniele Bonera. The 32 year old defender suffered a knee injury in a friendly match that Milan played against Valencia, so the team coached by Massimo Allegri loaned a central defender from local rival Inter Milan.
Even if a few days ago Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani said that this deal will not be done, it seems that eventually the boss of the group from San Siro changed his mind. If initially wanted to buy the quarterback, eventually resorted to a loan deal.
The elected footballer is Matias Silvestre, the 28 years old player who checked 20 games last season for Inter, of which 9 in the Europa League. The defender was loaned by the Rossoneri for a period of one year and at the end of next season will have the option of buying in exchange for 4 million euros.
With this transfer, the name of the Argentine defender will be on the list of players who have represented both Inter and AC Milan. Among the most famous names in this top are Giuseppe Meazza, Christian Vieri, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Hernan Crespo, Clarence Seedorf, Andrea Pirlo, Edgar Davids and Mario Balotelli.
