Milan Complete Traore-Birsa Exchange With Genoa

One doesn’t know who is worse, but still…

According to Sky Italia, Milan have permanently signed Genoa’s winger Valter Birsa in a swap deal for midfielder Bakaye Traore.

Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio revealed that the deal has been wrapped up with CEO Adriano Galliani and Genoa president Enrico Preziosi teaming up on Thursday evening.

Milan snapped Traore last summer on a free transfer, but the Mali man has failed to live up to the expectations. He is now set to continue career in Serie A, so close but still so far away from the Rossoneri.

The 27-year-old Slovenian international was a Rossoblu member for total of two seasons, although he spent one on loan at Torino, scoring two goals in 17 appearances.

This week Milan has been involved in another Genoa business, after landing Genoa talent Stefan Simic and letting go off Lucarini.

    • Valter Birsa doesn’t ring a bell?
      No problem. I could just give you the Transfermarkt or Wikipedia links to him, but I’d rather be much helpful than that 🙂
      Well, former Genoa player Birsa is a 27-year-old, 184 cm tall Slovenian left footed winger, who primary does all the work as a left wing – but can also serve right and as a secondary striker.
      He is a constant member of the Slovenian football national team ever since 2005, but he reached the highest honor in their roster at the 2010 World Cup, as an Auxerre player the time. Birsa got transferred to Genoa the following year, wasn’t given a lot of playing time and was soon sent on a loan at Torino.
      As a player, he’s got quality (not a Milan material, but at least deserves a chance). According to the latest reports (which you may have already heard), Allegri is thinking of giving him that chance although it is expected that he spends another season on loan – this time at Brescia.
      Hopefully this was helpful 🙂
      In case of anything else, don’t hesitate to ask.
      Warm Regards
