CorSera: €30m defender expected to be first signing of the Investcorp era at Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan already have their first signing of the summer lined up and the takeover will not change those plans, according to a report.

We reported via our colleagues at earlier this week that a change of ownership is expected at the end of the season as Milan will pass from an American fund to a Bahrain-based one, but it will not revolutionise the managerial nomenclature as Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will stay.

Maldini and Massara have already worked on some transfer operations such as those that should bring Divock Origi and Sven Botman to the Rossoneri next season, and Investcorp believe each to be good purchases from an economic point of view.

Now, il Corriere della Sera (via have confirmed our news regarding Botman. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are working on the summer market despite the possible change in owners, and Investcorp will not stand in the way of the first signing of the summer being the Dutch defender for €30m.

  1. Yes, we’ve been hearing the same thing since January. Why would Milan blow €30 million on a slow, back-up to Kulalu?

    1. Dude we play 3 competition. Tomori – kalulu tired if play all match and they disastrous in semifinal coppa. Who say he Will be kalulu back up, he Will compete for starting spot . Kjaer and gabbia are back up material . Romagnoli Will leave to get starting spot in lazio

    2. MBMEHDI gets it. He’s so slow. It’s.clear we need pace at the back. With Tomori and Kalulu u get plenty. And they do a good job. Besides Botman’s positioning is questionable which is ironic as you would think it would help not having pace.

  2. fact is for all 3 competitions we need 4 quality players at CB. Tomori, Kjaer, Kalulu and Botman.
    Given florenzi is on loan, and Calabria has missed some games. Safe to assume Kalulu will play at RB as well. That’s where Gabbia comes in. Not to mention Kjaer is coming back from a serious injury and he isnt 20 anymore. Botman is a bet for now AND the future.
    Wish we were as proactive on offeense as we are on defense though.
