I cannot tell whether it is fear or excitement that surrounds the players’ upcoming return to Milanello on Friday. The hope and optimism for the mercato that swelled with news of the agreement with Bee Taechaubol crashed and burned like the Hindenburg when Galliani’s initial transfer attempts failed miserably. So now Galliani has been working overtime, planning a mercato like it’s 1986. The co-ownership deadline was last Thursday, contracts are expiring tomorrow, and the mercato officially opens on Wednesday. Yet with so little tied up so far, it leaves us all to ask: Guess who’s coming to Milanello?
