CM: Milan looking to raise €90m from player sales to fund move for No.1 forward target

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are plotting a number of sales to finance a move for Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic this summer, according to a report.

It is no secret that Milan are in the market for a new centre-forward given the doubts over the future of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the new playing style that probable new manager Ralf Rangnick will bring.

According to Calciomercato.com Luka Jovic of Real Madrid is still the priority target, but Florentino Perez wants €45-50m to sell the 22-year-old who arrived for €60m from Eintracht Frankfurt last summer.

To finance the blow Milan are looking to make several sales starting with Mateo Musacchio, who the club will let leave if a €10m offer arrives as per the report with Valencia and Real Betis interested.

Rade Krunic’s could also be allowed to leave with Torino currently the team with a concrete interest in the Bosnian, and he could be sold if an €8-10m bid arrives.

Lucas Paqueta is another player that could depart as he does not seem to have the characteristics suitable for Rangnick’s quick game. Fiorentina, Benfica, PSG and a few Brazilian clubs are interested, with Milan looking for €25-30m.

Andre Silva could also raise a nice amount of cash for Milan having scored 10 goals in 22 appearances on loan in Frankfurt. The Rossoneri want €20million from his sale.

Finally, Suso is moving towards a permanent exit as Sevilla close in on Champions League qualification. His departure would net €20m in pure capital gains, meaning a total of around €90m could be raised from the aforementioned five sales.
