CM: Milan’s budget for the summer window outlined – Rangnick had asked for over 3x as much

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan director Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are working with a vastly reduced budget compared to what Ralf Rangnick was asking for.

That is according to Calciomercato.com, who are reporting that Maldini and Massara have approximately €30million available for the transfer market, to which any proceeds from sales will be added.

That’s why the Rossoneri club is pushing for the farewell of player like Davide Calabria, whose €12-13million fee – all capital gains – would be an important injection of funds.

The renewal of Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a priority and the deal with Chelsea for Tiemoue Bakayoko is a loan with option (and not obligation) to buy at €30-32m.

Milan’s strategies have changed over the last few months as Rangnick seemed almost certain to arrive but a U-turn was done and Stefano Pioli was given a new deal.

The plug was pulled on Rangnick’s arrival as he had asked for €100m to work in the summer window, an amount that Elliott Management could not make available in large part due to the effects of COVID-19 on the club’s finances.

    if this really was the case all Milan fans should just stop reading articles on the web about our club because apparently 99% of all that is posted as news is infact false info and in worst case scenario made up lies to gain some clicks.
    If we assume that the interview with rangnicks colaborator is correct then he wasnt hired because he didnt want to posses a dual role currently but only coaching the team to begin with.
    Not even our ownership is or hopefully isnt so dumb they would actually think we would be able to do any relevant moves to push us forward from last seasons 6th place with 30 millions. Infact im pretty confident that the management said we would have 75mil + 50% of sales so this is freaking bs with no grounds in reality.

    This is sad to hear, but it Makes sense as to why we no longer hear of deals for players like Tonali, Szobozlai, Dumphries, Fofana etc…and instead we are looking at loans w options to buy…Terrible! Elliot positioning to sell the club – get finances in order, lower wage bill and not splash cash on expensive signings (Tonali, Szobozlai, Etc..) or a coach (Ragnick) and instead stay cheap w Pioli on a short term deal and players like Ibra, Baka, on short term deal or loans or players nobody wants – Aurier. Until we sell this club we will never return to past glory. Pray for Arnault. Pray.

    Wow. I am not that mad cause the only positions I see us not getting players on loan are right wing and center back
