CM: Milan must replace Meite – the four options including Real Madrid and Chelsea duo

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have secured the return of Sandro Tonali from Brescia and are now in search of a fourth midfielder, according to a report.

Calciomercato.com writes how Milan’s summer mercato is moving forward in small but very important steps, as goalkeeper Mike Maignan has arrived to replace Gianluigi Donnarumma and the permanent signing of Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea has been completed. The return of Brahim Diaz will soon be closed and, above all, as will Sandro Tonali from Brescia.

Now, Milan must replace Soualiho Meite because in January both Bennacer and Kessie will be involved in the Africa Cup of Nations, which means two back-up midfielders of quality are needed to make sure their absence is not felt.

The first name on the list is Tiemoué Bakayoko, but Chelsea could exercise their unilateral renewal option which would mean his contract expires in 2023 and not 2022. Milan also really like Boubacar Kamara but his asking price is high, while in Serie A the viewfinder is focused on Jerdy Schouten of Bologna.

Finally, Dani Ceballos of Real Madrid is an option but he is not a pure holding midfielder. He is leaving Real Madrid after his return from Arsenal.

    My problems with Milan is, why don’t we create our own star, why can we adept pobege in that rule, what can ceballos can offer in that rule in my belief pobega too can offer even more at the time he learned, so let try him in friendly matches please….

    You have to start giving opportunities for the young stars thou not as starters but at least on rotation …otherwise, we keep losing younger starts.. why you need to buy mediocre players to sit on the dam bench and spend money on ..Pioli is not a guy who can give them breakthrough season ..he just keeps them mediocre …dam stop buying nonsense other than for starting roles…give the younger players from the academy a chance…

    That’s the problem of this new milan. QUICK FIX while selling off all the academy’s younger talents for pure capital gain. They are already deviating from the original projects of developing younger talents into stars. Hauge and Pobega should be given real chance as they have shown that they are ready to take on the big stage. Just an ACM and RW , may be bakayoko or we still rotate Krunic as utility player he is and we good

    Blame not Pioli brother. Even great coaches of today started from somewhere. The problem is the ideology of the management, that’s where the problem lies. We have the likes of Pobega and yet they are looking to buy one Shouten or so. It makes no sense.
    Develop ours, then maybe later you can probably cash in on them. This is just like gifting our gems to others.

    We are more and more becoming f….. Arsenal where Gazidis was in charge.
    If we would have 20 goals striker we could grow our youth in rotation.
    I would prefer to have Pobega more than Bakayoko in squad but as I said before gazidis i BIG BIG problem for AC Milan
