CM: Chief scout and ‘visionary’ Moncada tasked with identifying new central midfielder

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s chief scout Geoffrey Moncada is at work again to try and spot more exciting talent ahead of a crucial summer transfer window, a report claims.

As writes, Moncada arrived at Milanello from Monaco and is defined by everyone as a sort of ‘visionary’. He took on the role of chief scout having been offered it by Elliott Management, and he is the figure that Ivan Gazidis’ right-hand man Hendrik Almstadt wanted to develop the sporting area with scouting and statistics.

Over the last two years there have been many suggestions for Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara, such as the approval of a move for Theo Hernandez plus the profiles of Jens Petter Hauge, Pierre Kalulu and Alexis Saelemaekers ended up on the desk of the directors. They are deemed as ‘futuristic signings’ also when looking at possible future resale value.

Moncada’s next objective will have to represent this type of investment, and his latest task is to find a physical central midfielder – a deputy to Franck Kessie – because at the moment Soualiho Meite is unlikely to stay.
