Marco Sportiello, Luka Romero, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Christian Pulisic, Tijjani Reijnders, Noah Okafor plus soon Samuel Chukwueze and maybe even Yunus Musah and Riccardo Calafiori.
This morning’s edition of Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) writes how Milan have closed six deals in the first official month of the transfer window, with another expected to be done soon (Chukwueze) and potentially at least two more to follow.
It is not a full-blown revolution because the spine of the team remains, with the exception of Sandro Tonali, but Milan continue to sign predominantly young players with potential and complimentary pieces to the core.
The club took advantage of Newcastle’s monstrous offer to Tonali to generate a very important amount to reinvest in the market, not on one or two big names but for various intelligent and strategic operations.
The pitch will of course give the answers, but the mission to improve the squad depth available to Stefano Pioli seems to be going well, especially with Okafor to be announced soon and Chukwueze to follow.
Milan have redesigned the attacking department, guaranteeing Pioli not only the possibility of changing formations during the season but also of having valid alternatives to be able to compete in different competitions.
The leaders of the attack are Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud, with Lorenzo Colombo, Junior Messias and Alexis Saelemaekers awaiting developments on their future and Pulisic having joined the ranks.
Even the midfield has been turned upside down and Pioli finally feels that on August 21, the day of the season debut against Bologna, he will have a team at his disposal that can be ready for three different competitions.
