MN: Certainties, doubts and decisions – Maldini and Massara programming Milan’s attack

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s squad is in an evolutionary phase and the management are beginning to look at how to perfect the attack ahead of next season with what they have available, a report claims.

MilanNews writes that Rafael Leao and Ante Rebic are practically untouchable on the left wing bar something sensational happening, but the rest of the attack must be built around them. For example, Brahim Diaz has enormous talent, but after an explosive start to the season he has been showing difficulties for a few months now.

At the end of this season Yacine Adli will arrive at Milan after his loan at Bordeaux is over. The Rossoneri bought him for around €8m last summer, leaving him on loan for a year with the Ligue 1 side to get the maximum playing time to develop, given he is only 21.

The choice seems to have been wise because the player has grown a lot, even becoming becoming the captain of a Bordeaux side that at the moment are fighting against relegation. Adli plays the role of attacking midfielder in a much more classic way than Diaz, with Milan observing his development with a smile on their faces.

Evaluations will also be made with regard to the right wing where a decision has to be made on Junior Messias and whether to use his option to buy or not. After a slow start due to some physical problems, the Brazilian became a starter on the right to the detriment of Alexis Saelemaekers.

However, the management believe in the Belgian too, so much so that at the beginning of the season he was rewarded with a contract renewal until 2026.
