AC Milan are looking to make over €30million from the sale of a number of squad players in January, according to a report.
The upcoming window is expected to be a busy one for the Rossoneri, who have started the season poorly and sit nine points out of a Champions League spot at present.
La Gazzetta dello Sport provide an update on the plans for next month, claiming that by signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic they would save money – since he is a free transfer – which can be used to buy either Merih Demiral or Jean-Clair Todibo.
Meanwhile, full-backs Davide Calabria and Ricardo Rodriguez can leave. The former was approached by Sevilla, while for the latter a return to Germany is more likely than joining Gennaro Gattuso at Napoli.
In the midfield meanwhile, Franck Kessie’s future is still to be written. It cannot be ruled out that he leaves in January as Rade Krunic has been impressive and only joined in the summer, plus the €38million outlay on Lucas Paqueta is an investment that Elliott Management are determined to protect.
In the summer Kessie was very close to a move to Wolverhampton, and the Premier League remains the most suitable league for his characteristics.
From sales Milan are hoping to get a package of over €30million, the report concludes, while Fabio Borini could leave for ‘a few million’ with offers not lacking.
