CM: Background on Milan’s pursuit of midfielder now eyed by Liverpool and Juventus

By Oliver Fisher -

Manu Kone is now a player in demand given how impressive he has been for Borussia Mönchenglabdach, but he could have been plying his trade for AC Milan instead.

According to, the profile of Manu Kouadio Koné is rapidly climbing positions in the list of Cristiano Giuntoli’s targets to come in and strengthen Juve’s midfield, given his tactical intelligence and his skill set.

The report recalls that it was back in January 2021 that Borussia Mönchenglabdach concluded the operation to sign Kone from Toulouse in an €8m operation, allowing the then-19-year-old to remain on loan at the French club until the end of the season.

Milan had worked for months with the agents of the Frenchman who was reported by the head of the scouting area Geoffrey Moncada, but Toulouse preferred to accept the offer from the Bundesliga side because it was better economically and they kept him on loan.

Konè is now a permanent presence in the starting XI for Mönchengladbach and his performances for them have not gone unnoticed either.

Liverpool have also been following him for some time, while Juve have enquired and his value is €25m, triple what he cost two years ago.

  1. Considering the fact that a club like ACM follows more than 50 players across the globe, you can make a new article like this every week.

  2. @kristian: I agree that a lot of players get linked to AC Milan, but anyone can delineate which one is a serious target for the next transfer market. If they fit in with the right qualities and are able to display a level of consistency for their team, while delivering these qualities. Then those are the players fans can see the club going for.

    I remember Kvaratskhelia was someone the club must have taken seriously, but considering the team still had rebic. The club didn’t go for him, plus the club didn’t have the money for him.

    If the club gets the money they agreed to for Alexis, CDK, Origi and Toure. Along with the 18Mil that was supposed to go for Terami and prize money from any competition, all of this will help the club to compete for these targets.

    But all of this can be good indicators on who is going to be a serious target and how Milan will approach them.
