Have the Rossoneri done enough to challenge for the Scudetto?
AC Milan made the headlines on transfer deadline day, as they secured the return of former Brazilian star Kaka from Real Madrid on a free transfer.
While the 31-year-old was greeted by a frenzy of supporters at both Linate airport and then at Via Turati after he had officially signed his contract, there are still critics who suggest that the Rossoneri have not solved all their issues this summer.
Kaka will undoubtedly bring class and creativity in the trequartista role, although his attributes have somewhat changed since his first spell at the club.
With Kevin-Prince Boateng sold to Schalke, Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri finally has a genuine No. 10 at his disposal, and that can only be a positive as the club look to revert back to a 4-3-1-2 system.
It remains to be seen how much of an influence Kaka can have in his second spell at the San Siro, but he will ultimately add something that has long been missing in this team, and will have a positive impact on the likes of Stephan El Shaarawy and Riccardo Saponara.
The young attacking duo have made no secret of the fact that the Brazilian is their idol, and it will be interesting to see how they develop under his tutelage while the Brazilian pulls the string behind the front-pairing.
Meanwhile, Alessandro Matri didn’t receive quite the same warm welcome despite his roots in the Milan youth academy, as sceptics pointed to the fact that Milan didn’t necessarily need another striker.
Nevertheless, the former Juventus man has arrived, along with midfield prospect Andrea Poli who has looked impressive in spells during his first few games with the club.
The centre of the Milan defence remains their biggest weakness, as despite registering the third best defensive record in Italy last season, it is debatable as to whether Philippe Mexes and Cristian Zapata are of a good enough standard.
A late bid for Cagliari stopper Davide Astori was rejected, leading to Milan looking threatening going forward but undoubtedly vulnerable at the back.
Transfer window rating: 7/10
