Milan have officially signed last season's star Serie B striker Gianluca Lapadula, beating Napoli and Juventus.
The 26-year-old set the secondary Italian championship ablaze with 30 goals in 44 games. A transfer seemed a near-certainty and the most likely candidates were the Partenopei, who meant to employ him as a bencher for Gonzalo Higuain, and Juventus, who planned to loan him out to a smaller club like Sassuolo.
Scoring a goal is one of the most rewarding moments in football. Some players celebrate their goal by running to the crowd, others celebrate with their teammates. However, some celebrate in a truly outrageous style. Here are our top 10 goal celebrations in preparation for Euro 2016:
Why Always Me?
In 2011, Mario Balotelli seemed to be making headlines every week due to his off-pitch antics. Antics such as throwing darts at youth team players and driving into a women’s prison “to have a look round” were all reported by the English press. The day before the match, news broke that Balotelli had set his house on fire with fireworks he set off in his house. In the next match, Balotelli revealed the ‘Why Always Me?’ shirt to hit back at the English press.
Back in 1999, Ian Wright showed off the celebration for Celtic when he scored their sixth goal against Aberdeen. However, this celebration is rarely seen these days at football matches, but is commonly used by players of the FIFA video game series.
Catch of the Day
Stjarnan FC became internet sensations with their outrageous, but impressive, choreographic celebrations. Stjarnan performed a number of outrageous celebrations such as imitating a human toilet, a human bicycle, and replicating a Rambo shooting spree. However, their catch of the day celebration is the best of the bunch.
Lower league games tend to have low attendances, and as a result there are gaps around the stadium. After scoring a goal against Castleton Gabriels, Matthew Russell took advantage of the emptiness and grabbed a seat in one of the empty stands and applauded his effort at goal.
It’s A Knockout
In March 2015, a leaked video showed Wayne Rooney being knocked unconscious in a kitchen boxing match and made it on to the front page of national newspapers. In the very next game, Rooney celebrated his goal by mimicking the leaked video.
After finding the back of the net in the 2002 World Cup, Julius Aghahowa celebrated his goal in spectacular fashion by backwards somersaulting multiple times. If he kept on going, he may have ended up outside of the stadium.
In 2006, Peter Crouch introduced the world to The Robot after scoring goals against Hungary and Jamaica. Crouch’s celebration was a parody of a celebration he had seen on a television programme. In 2007, Crouch ‘killed off’ The Robot by claiming he would never use the dance again unless he scored a big goal in the World Cup final or Champions League final. After a comic relief sketch in 2009, Crouch partially reprised the dance after scoring against Ukraine in a World Cup qualifier. Unfortunately, The Robot has not been used since.
The Phil Brown
When Hull got embarrassed in the first half of a Premier League games versus Manchester City, manager Phil Brown gave his half time team talk on the pitch in front of the Hull fans. 12 months later the players got their own back by mimicking Brown’s ticking off, led by goal scorer Jimmy Bullard.
In the Rome derby between Roma and Lazio, Francesco Totti celebrated in the most ‘modern way’ possible. After scoring a vital equaliser, Totti got hold of a phone from the Roma coaching team and proceeded to take a selfie with the Roma fans.
Back when AFC Bournemouth was languishing in League Two and in deep relegation trouble, their former manager Jimmy Quinn sent the team out for some boxing training. After scoring in the next game, Lee Bradbury showed off his skills on his teammates.
AC Milan are in pole position for the signing of Sevilla coach Unai Emery but it seems that they face fierce competition from French champions Paris Saint-Germain.
The Milan based club are also in advanced negotiations to sell the club to Chinese investors. They are the ones that seem to push for the arrival of Emery.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan have already agreed terms with the Spanish coach and are willing to splashe €3m on his release clause mentioned in his Sevilla contract.
However, the report also claims that there's a significant chance PSG will go after Emery and that would convince him to head towards France instead, which would make football betting fans slightly confused.
Paris Saint-Germain’s first choice is Diego Simeone, who does not seem very interested in leaving Atletico Madrid.
Berlusconi has already said several times that if he will still be in charge of the Rossoneri that they will go ahead with present Coach Cristian Brocchi.
Berlusconi scuppers AC Milan sale? 6.6 ||webmaster
There are increasing reports Silvio Berlusconi is trying to back out of selling Milan to a Chinese consortium.
The President has been close to a sale before only for negotiations to break down and Sky Sport Italia suggest the pattern is repeating.
Carlos Bacca linked with move to West Ham 3.6 ||webmaster
Reports suggest West Ham have bid £15 million for AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca. However, West Ham may have to up their offer in order to bring the hitman to East London.
It’s understood AC Milan are holding out for £19 million, with Milan’s prospective new Chinese owners looking to have the final say on if the player is sold, or if more cash is demanded.
The Colombian forward, who turns 30 in September, scored 18 league goals in his first season with AC Milan after joining from Sevilla last summer. AC Milan secured his services for £21 million and would be looking to recoup as much as possible for the player.
Bacca's representative, Sergio Barila, played down talk of the Colombian being close to a switch to the Olympic Stadium. Barila told Tutto Mercato: "I have been waiting for hours, but nothing has been decided at the moment, as we are evaluating more than one option.”
"There are many important clubs who have contacted us, and it is normal as Bacca guarantees you many goals during the season.
"And he is definitely a valuable player in the market."
With a number of high profile sponsors of West Ham, and their move to the Olympic Stadium in London drawing international attention, many will be looking for 888 casino reviews online.
West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan has been vocal about the need to sign a "top striker" this summer. It’s claimed he is willing to spend up to £30m to secure a top name striker.
