The young players are already in place, but AC Milan also need a few experienced players to balance the squad. Therefore, by the looks of it, they will focus on this aspect during the January transfer window.
As reported by today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews.it), the idea is still linked to Croatia, after the Rossoneri tried for Modric in the summer. In fact, Boban has set his sights on Rakitic of Barcelona.
The midfielder is no longer considered unsellable by the Catalan site. Furthermore, the 31-year-old himself would like to start a new adventure elsewhere, per the report. By accepting an offer from Milan, he could play a few more years at the top.
After that, he could opt for less demanding solutions. For Milan, the price of the player is affordable, as the report continues, but the main obstacle is the salary. The Rossoneri could get rid of a few outcasts to make way for Rakitic.
