Di Marzio: “Milan ready to do business in January; there was money for Demiral”

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ‘ready to intervene’ in the January transfer window by making more signings, according to the reliable Gianluca Di Marzio.

The Rossoneri have had a mixed start to their 2019-20 campaign, winning two and losing two of their opening four Serie A fixtures.

Pressure is building on Marco Giampaolo though, as his side have scored just two goals in total – the joint-least in Europe’s ‘top five’ leagues – with only one coming from open play.

Links with a number of players have emerged in recent days, including the likes of Jan Vertonghen, Everton SoaresDonyell MalenSerge Aurier, Santiago Arias and Sandro Tonali.

Milan director Zvonomir Boban has already stated that he regrets not signing more experience in the summer, but it appears attention has already turned to January.

Di Marzio spoke Sky Italia regarding the winter window, revealing that Milan are ready to spring into action once again.

“Milan spent about 69 million euros in the summer market, but it must be remembered that in the recent past there have been very high expenses and therefore the club had to deal with this,” he said, via MilanNews.it.

“Even though the owners did not have an idea to necessarily spend a certain amount, they could also have spent 100 million, so much so that there was that little treasure remaining for Merih Demiral in case Juventus had decided to open up a sale.

“I am sure the club are ready to intervene even in January should there be any opportunities”.
