Transfer Rumors January 2009: William Gallas Attracts AC Milan and Juventus Interest

(This entry was originally posted in this blog on December 10, 2008 and the information is based on that time.)

Former Arsenal captain William Gallas now seems to have attracted attention of two Italian giants AC Milan and Juventus who are keen to sing him in the upcoming January transfer window. Arsenal defender William Gallas was recently stripped of Arsenal captaincy following his comment on dressing room rift in Arsenal in the media which caused an outburst among the Arsenal fans and manager Arsene Wenger took away the captain’s armband from Gallas and handed it to the young Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas. Ever since William Gallas lost the captaincy, flurry of rumors concerning his future at Arsenal started to come in the media.

AC Milan first showed interest in Gallas as they are desperate to sign a defender in January transfer window because Milan is currently missing their star defender Alessandro Nesta due to his injury and Captain Paolo Maldini is also retiring at the end of this season. So, this is pretty much clear that the club is seriously tracking the French defender at this moment.

Recently, Juventus also showed their interest in the 31-year-old William Gallas. Alessio Secco, director of sport at Juventus, recently came to London and met Ivan Gazidis, the new chief executive of Arsenal, to start a negotiation for the defender. Tuttosport, a Turin based newspaper, reported that Juventus is ready to make a €8 million bid for William Gallas. Now, let us see who wins the race, AC Milan or Juventus?
