CM: How the Loftus-Cheek signing changes Milan’s midfield

By Oliver Fisher -

The signing of Ruben Loftus-Cheek is one that adds a bit of variety to AC Milan’s midfield, one that needs to be reshaped amid the imminent sale of Sandro Tonali. write how Milan’s latest signing has the approval of the legendary head coach Arrigo Sacchi, who said: “He’s a physically strong player and has international experience.”

Milan have invested €20m when factoring the fixed part and the bonuses to sign him from Chelsea, with the Englishman signing a four-year contract, and now everyone is eagerly awaiting the first glimpses in preseason.

Loftus-Cheek will be the sixth English player in the history of Milan, as Fikayo Tomori reunites with his compatriot. He joins a midfield which currently has only Tommaso Pobega and Rade Krunic as fit options.

That is because Ismael Bennacer is out until next year after knee surgery, Tonali is one step away from Newcastle and Yacine Adli is not considered part of the plans. Aster Vranckx and Tiemoue Bakayoko’s loan deals have ended.

Loftus-Cheek can play in all positions in midfield. He can play in the two in front of the defence, but also as a mezzala in a three-man midfield. If it ever came to it, he could play as a No.10 or wide right in a four-man midfield.

He has never scored so many goals with just 10 goals and 12 assists in 10 years in the Premier League. However, he doesn’t lack experience nor does he lack physique at 191cm tall and 83kg in weight.

  1. He will end up in the advanced midfield position behind Musah(if it happens) and Krunic for the tough games in Pioli’s current system .

  2. My hope is that Tonali is using this as an opportunity to make Milan and himself some money and then he’ll be back.

    1. My hope is that you will stop posting asinine comments.

      But looks like neither of us will get our wish you racist donkey

  3. “Sacchi, who said: “He’s a physically strong player and has international experience.””.of course I’m so glad because Tonali was neither of those two characteristic.
