Di Marzio: Milan’s mercato operations moving ‘very slowly’ but three players remain targets

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s transfer operations are on stand-by for the time being until their ownership situation is resolved, but there are still talks on over potential deals.

Transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio spoke to German outlet WettFreunde (via TEAMtalk) and was first of all asked whether Divock Origi’s proposed move to Milan from Liverpool will happen, to which he replied: “I guess so.”

He adds that there is a ‘detailed investigation’ ongoing regarding the ownership passing from Elliott Management to Investcorp and that it why things are moving ‘very slowly’ with regards to the market, because strategies need to be confirmed and budgets established.

Milan have ‘spoken extensively with Origi’s agents’ and are ‘very close to finding an agreement’ with the player over terms, with Olivier Giroud’s situation (contract until 2023) meaning that another reinforcement is needed.

Ibrahimovic is going to be out of contract in the summer too so a centre-forward is definitely a necessity but the Rossoneri ‘don’t have a budget right now to buy a lot of defenders, midfielders and forwards’.

He adds that Milan ‘need to buy Sven Botman, possibly Renato Sanches and another one for midfield’.

  1. Team should be 100% focused on the three remaining games, starting on Sunday’s game.
    The club would have all the time in the world to purchase players.
    3 games to go and being on top of the table by 2 points is a golden opportunity.

  2. So, we need to buy so much positions and the alleged budget is 100M minus 30M for Botman? You can’t buy a good ST, RW and AMC for 70M, no way. You can’t even get 2 out of 3 positions covered.

    1. U can get from 100 mil + ( the sales of hauge 12 , the player from Turkish league 5-6 , and if we managed to sell someone else )

      Origi free
      30 mil botman
      30 mil scamacca
      20 mil berrardi
      20 mil Renato Sanchez

      50 mil a good AM ( same sales and money from the scudetto ) ( dream transfer is Nkunku but this one costs 65-70 mil )

      But the money we have from bakakoko 12 mil , Diaz 22 mil , florenzi 5 mil , messiah 6 mil should be put all for Nkunku .

      1. AC Milan cannot sell brahim,Bakayoko,Florenzi,junior . It is not AC Milan player but other club player, AC Milan just loan from other club’. If you are AC Milan Director sport i believe we Will bankrupcy soon
