AC Milan have begun to dream that they could sign Erling Haaland to be the heir to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to a report.
Calciomercato.it are reporting that Milan’s great start to the season has opened up prospects for the Rossoneri that seemed unattainable just a few months ago. A top four finish remains the objective, but there is also the possibility that a title challenge could be mounted.
Under an article titled ‘Haaland is the dream for the post-Ibra’, the report adds that the Borussia Dortmund star is a possibility when looking at centre-forwards to replace the Swede, who is 39 years of age.
His father – the former footballer Alf-Inge – in an interview with Tuttosport mentioned Ibrahimovic among the idols of his son. The two share the same agent, Mino Raiola, which could become an interesting point of discussion.
If Milan were to go on and win the Scudetto, they could regain appeal and given themselves a huge marquee addition, but it should be remembered that ‘at the moment it is an extremely difficult hypothesis’ from an economic point of view.
The English media meanwhile are reporting that Manchester United and Manchester City are in the running to land the former Salzburg star, who has a €70m release clause.
