AC Milan could choose to invest in a big-money midfielder this summer despite the club’s apparent transfer strategy, a report claims.
The Rossoneri are undergoing a revolution off the pitch this summer, with Marco Giampaolo set to be named as the new head coach and Frederic Massara the new sporting director.
In addition, club CEO Ivan Gazidis is expected to implement a policy whereby recruitment is focused on young players with big potential who can be developed, rather than huge marquee signings.
However, that might not extend to the midfield department, if Tuesday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport is to be believed.
They claim that the middle of the park is a key area where Giampaolo needs quality reinforcements, and Milan could invest more as a result.
Zvonomir Boban is expected to have a major role in identifying midfield targets, of which Cagliari’s Nicolo Barella has been mentioned as a possible option.
