CM: Economic sustainability and low-risk operations – Milan’s new strategy is based on loans

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have made somewhat of a splash early in the summer window with the signings of Mike Maignan and Fikayo Tomori, but big expenses cannot be expected from here. writes that CEO Ivan Gazidis wishes to continue on the road towards a balanced budget and an economic equilibrium, things which are very fundamental in the post-Covid period given that the pandemic brought the entire football system to its knees.

Attention should be paid to the investments which are conspicuous but always weighed rationally, as seen through the players who have arrived in the last two years such as Rebic, Tomori, Kjaer, Saelemaekers, Tonali and Meitè. Six players with a common denominator: the loan as a formula in the negotiation.

Milan wish to focus on loans so as not to waste liquidity, but to evaluate each player with time and attention, which is a strategy that has perhaps been shown to work very well given the arrival of Tomori on a permanent deal yesterday.

In addition to trying to obtain a discount on Sandro Tonali, evaluations also underway on Brahim Diaz and Dalot, who have also arrived on loan (dry, in this case). Maldini and Massara are working with Real Madrid and Manchester United to find a meeting point, while Junior Firpo is a target for the deputy left-back spot.
