CM: Milan have Tonali to thank with eighth signing imminent – three more could arrive

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan should soon complete signing number eight with Yunus Musah now almost certain to join, but they are expected to make three more additions.

As writes, the arrival of Noah Okafor from Salzburg for €14m meant Milan had closed their sixth signing of the summer. Marco Sportiello and Luka Romero were frees, with Christian Pulisic (€20m), Tijjani Reijnders (€20m), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (€15m) and Okafor (€14m) making a total of €69m.

The Rossoneri had financed all the operations to that point with the sale of Sandro Tonali to Newcastle United for a guaranteed €70m, which Giorgio Furlani and Geoffrey Moncada used to reinforce several areas, increase depth and invest in talent.

There was a budget of €35-40m initially allocated by the management for the summer without sales, so with this sum Samuel Chukwueze was brought to Milan for the price of €20m.

Then there is the closure of the Musah deal for €18m, a total of €38m on the last two operations. Now, the exits of Ante Rebic (going to Besiktas), Divock Origi and Fode Ballo-Touré will finance the rest of the market.

Two full-backs will arrive and the plan is to sign a striker to complete the attack. In short, Milan’s market plan is clear, outlined and almost complete, also thanks to Sandro Tonali.

  1. The issue before Tonali was sold was defensive mid cover for the back four. We still don’t have that. We didn’t have it last year either 🤦‍♂️

  2. Till last year, everyone was in favor of selling Leao to fund the arrivals. I don’t understand why everyone is complaining this year after Tonali’s departure. If a departure helps the team, why not do it?
    Only time can tell whether it was worth it or not so we should sit back and relax at least for a season.

    1. I am not one of them but I remember their reason was because Leao had not renew. As for Tonali, he was still on long term contract.

  3. In my point of view Milan is back step by step and nothing stopping this process, Developing is continuing. Ac Milan need a two years to reach top levels and creat competitive environments in Milan to make high level of quality not quantity.
