AC Milan have the youngest average team in all of Serie A, according to a report from La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The newspaper claims that the idea of a young and talented Milan has always been the objective of the current owners, in order to build a team that can become champions rather than pay over-inflated prices for established names.
The market has followed this vision, as six players have arrived: Rafael Leao (20 years old), Theo Hernandez and Ismael Bennacer (21), Leo Duarte (23), plus Rade Krunic and Ante Rebic who are the experienced ones at 25.
Rebic – should he be thrust straight into the line-up – could be the oldest of the starting XI as he was born two months before Suso, who is also 25.
The paper goes on to add that Milan are the youngest team in Serie A with an average age of 24 years and 125 days, the only one that falls below 25.
