CM: Milan firmly in Tonali race but Correa and Todibo sagas serve as stark warning

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan must act quickly if they are to burn the competition and seal a move for Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali, a report claims.

The Rossoneri have been linked with a move for the 19-year-old by a number of different outlets, with reported interest also from main rivals Juventus and Inter.

As Calciomercato.com are reporting, Milan are indeed firmly in the race to land Tonali having made their move in the last week, but there are lessons to be learned from previous pursuits of players.

Juve and Inter have Paratici and Marotta respectively to carry out their dealings, something which appears to be missing even if Hendrik Almstadt and Geoffrey Moncada act behind the scenes.

Paolo Maldini is moving ever closer to leaving the club that for decades gloriously captained. The future is Ralf Rangnick, but even that particular horizon still looks far away today. With a championship finale to be played and a season that, most likely, will last until the summer, planning today is complicated.

Here is where the problem arrives for Milan: entering into negotiations appears difficult, given the current conditions. Milan need to regain identity and credibility on the market and fast, but the risk is to see objectives fade like in the past, as seen with the Angel Correa and Jean-Clair Todibo sagas.
