CM: Milan and Inter fade into the background as Bayern Munich lead race for striker

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan enquired about the signing of Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic but have fallen behind in the race, a report claims.

According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Vlahovic and Fiorentina remain at loggerheads over a potential renewal and the recent words of their owner Rocco Commisso have not helped things, as he challenged the striker to make a decision on his future.

Juventus are working hard to bring him to Turin, but the required figures certainly represent an obstacle for the Bianconeri, while the new frontrunner seem to be Bayern Munich who are now one of the club most interested in landing the 21-year-old.

Inter and Milan have made enquiries in the past as they both look for potential long-term options for the No.9 role, but both clubs are described as being further back in the race, possibly because of the transfer fee that would be involved.

    Honestly, while it may suck for us, him growing and developing alongside Levangolski might be just what doctor ordered. He has that build and talent, he just needs to adopt that mentality and learn a few more tricks of the trade and he’ll be unstoppable.

    For us, since Ibra and Giroud don’t play a lot and they will play less and less, we need a more established striker, someone that can just jump into that role, we already have a few that will grow into it in a few years, but that is not what’s needed right now.

    Milan will never again be in line for the top European players until there’s a change of ownership. The absolute tops that Elliott will spend is £30m on any player, and that would be a miracle. Milan will continue to need to trawl the less fashionable leagues (France, Scandinavia, Benelux) for bargains, plus taking on loans-with-options-to-buy from richer clubs (Tomori, Diaz etc).

    It’s frankly a miracle that Milan has managed to build such a strong squad with the resources they have, but let’s not kid ourselves – we’re no longer anywhere near the top table of European football.

      Please MC don’t be too harsh, but you are correct that European clubs bleed money for ultimate success
      One thing we can say for Milan they have scouted well, and better than most without bankrupting the club
      They have the fear of the big clubs and what they did to Madrid before the ref stepped in to make his name infamous
      Well…..

        Yes, but Mbappe was also purchased by Monaco at a young age, in the youth team, developed into a 180M player within 4 years. I can give you a 1000 other examples. You don’t have to buy top players if you have a top scouting and recruitement team. And it was Moncada that brought him and a lot of other good players to Monaco, so Milan is obviously trying to get that type of players. Look what happened to Barca when they stop focusing on their youth players and started buying expensive “stars”, they had to let Messi go, they let Suarez go last season for free, etc.

    Vlahovic is unreachable. Young and extremely popular. I would go for Belotti as our number 9. I am in kinda feeling that Belotti is destined to AC Milan.
