Di Marzio: Milan won’t need sales to fund their mercato following UEFA assist

By Isak Möller -

Earlier today, UEFA announced some changes to Financial Fair Play amid the Coronavirus effects, which will benefit all clubs on the transfer market (read our breakdown here). For AC Milan, it’s exactly what was needed. 

Gianluca Di Marzio took stock of the Rossoneri’s market opportunities, financially speaking, on Sky Italia earlier this evening (via MilanNews.it). UEFA’s decision is an assist for everyone, in the sense that FFP has been postponed until next year.

The situation of Gigio Donnarumma is linked to the contract, which will expire next year and the goalkeeper wants to understand Milan’s plans. There hasn’t been a direct meeting between the parties to present a proposal, but it should happen soon.

Of course, the Rossoneri want to keep him for Ralf Rangnick’s revolution. Furthermore, per the reporter, Milan don’t necessarily have to sell a player to fund the market and the manager will look for the most suitable players for his style of play.

The Milan owners, Elliott Management, will provide the German with a budget and some revenue from sales could also be used.
