Di Marzio highlights Milan’s mercato efforts: “They have already spent €60m”

By Isak Möller -

Milan have been very active on the transfer market thus far and have already announced three signings. Olivier Giroud will be the fourth and there is still more to come, with Brahim Diaz on his way to Italy (see here). 

Mike Maignan, Fikayo Tomori and Sandro Tonali have been announced by the Rossoneri and it’s safe to say they aren’t mourning the departures of Hakan Calhanoglu and Gigio Donnarumma. Instead, they are working hard on reinforcing the squad.

In addition to Giroud and Diaz, Fode Ballo-Toure is also expected in the city within the next 24 hours to complete his move to the club. Milan have really made an effort, in other words, as was highlighted by Gianluca Di Marzio (via MilanNews) last night.

“In a market of great economic difficulties for everyone, AC Milan have already spent 60 million euros without cashing in. Because they paid 28 million for Tomori, 7 for Tonali, 1 for Giroud, 16 for Maignan, 4 for Ballo-Touré and 3.5 million for Brahim’s two-year loan: 59 million.

“The economic effort to give Pioli the reinforcements immediately should be highlighted. In short, Milan have now spent a lot and are ready to seize the more low-cost opportunities that will emerge,” he stated.

You can question the signings that the Rossoneri have made, but it’s simply impossible to claim that Elliott Management aren’t willing to spend any money. Since they took over, they have spent a huge amount on the club.

    Spending and signing many players without a quality coach is a problem.

    Pls did anyone observed Pioli Milan record before Ibra was signed? To me Ibra is the real coach of the team.

    Pioli’s damaged are just too many. He made us to lose Paqueta for nothing.

    In my opinion, right now the squad is needed Paqueta more than any other player.

    He is hard working and he is creative. He have goals and assist in him. Our bald headed unsuccessful Coach Pioli made Milan to lost a special player that will raise the team quality and deliver results.

The author conveniently left that part out lol. Imagine who we could sign for all that $$. 40-45M was CL qualification $. Absent that how much have we really spent? 15-20M? And pls don’t count Maignan. I will be ha-pay when management invests all that $ we saved from Donnaruma and Hakan back into the team plus the CL $. So we still have another 80M or so to spend.

      Were they ready to sign new contracts. If Donna was keen to sign new contract, he won’t have left for nothing. He left his career in the hand of his agent who is a greedy bastard. No club wanna spend crazy in acquiring a goalkeeper. Donna is a PSG player. If he loved Milan as he claim he won’t have left for nothing. If there was transfer fee do you think PSG will buy him? Top clubs have good goalkeepers. He would have been a Borden to us. Hakan is already 27 no club will buy him for great sum not considering the euros he just had. So get ur analysis well.

    Yes you right we loss paquita maybe now he is better than Hakan in assist position and now we dont have a palymaker just Diaz has weak body

    1. Kelvin says:

      Diaz may have weak body but if he could improve and become someone great like silva we have a great player. All good attaching midfielder are flexible. If he was really bad Madrid won’t have stolen him from man city. They would have disposed him since. He is 21 with great technique. Let’s watch him this season. I bet he won’t disappoint. He is not as weak as you claim. Watch his first match he played for Milan. I don’t need stone we already have kessie for that I need tactically gifted player that have those killer pass, splitting pass that can change games
