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 Calciomercato.com 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.
