GdS: Several Milan players in the balance with summer of change coming

By Euan Burns -

A whole host of AC Milan players have uncertain futures with the club coming into this summer transfer window, with as many as 11 not sure what happens next.

As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (seen below), the summer will be unpredictable as rotational players and key players could be on the move if the right bids come in.

In terms of big names, it can’t be ruled out that French duo Mike Maignan and Theo Hernandez leave. Milan are trying to renew their contracts, but Bayern Munich have shown serious interest in both.

With a high-level central defender expected to arrive, Fikayo Tomori, Malick Thiaw, Pierre Kalulu and Matteo Gabbia will all be under the microscope as some of them will be getting less minutes if they stay.

Into midfield, Ismael Bennacer has not slotted back in after his injury in the way that many expected and he could fetch a useful fee, whilst Yacine Adli may also be sacrificed to raise money for other areas.

In the attack, Noah Okafor and Samuel Chukwueze are thought to be playing for their futures after underwhelming first seasons in Milan, whilst Luka Jovic is not guaranteed a contract beyond next season and he will have no guarantee of minutes if two strikers are signed.

  1. In just going to keep posting this for the rest of the summer…

    Here’s 43 players on our books (excluding some real randomers):

    Mike Maignan
    Marco Sportiello
    Lapo Nava LOAN
    Antonio Mirante
    Devis Vásquez SELL
    Marco Pellegrino SELL
    Davide Calabria
    Fodé Ballo-Touré SELL
    Davide Bartesaghi
    Théo Hernandez
    Pierre Kalulu
    Fikayo Tomori
    Simon Kjær KEEP FOR EXPERIENCE AND LEADERSHIP
    Malick Thiaw
    Mattia Caldara RELEASE
    Filippo Terracciano LOAN
    Alessandro Florenzi
    Matteo Gabbia
    Álex Jiménez SEND BACK TO REAL
    Jan-Carlo Simić LOAN
    Ismaël Bennacer
    Rade Krunić SORRY SELL
    Yacine Adli SELL PLEASE
    Ruben Loftus-Cheek
    Tijjani Reijnders
    Tommaso Pobega SORRY SELL
    Yunus Musah LAST CHANCE
    Olivier Giroud THANK FOR EVERYTHING
    Rafael Leão
    Christian Pulisic
    Luka Jović
    Noah Okafor
    Samuel Chukwueze
    Daniel Maldini SELL
    Junior Messias SELL
    Charles De Ketelaere SELL
    Marko Lazetić SELL
    Alexis Saelemaekers SELL
    Lorenzo Colombo SELL
    Divock Origi SELL
    Emil Roback SELL
    Luka Romero SELL
    Chaka Traorè SELL

    That would give us a squad of about 24 (excluding youth players) if we added a DM, AM and CF:

    Mike Maignan
    Marco Sportiello
    Antonio Mirante
    Davide Bartesaghi
    Davide Calabria
    Théo Hernandez
    Pierre Kalulu
    Fikayo Tomori
    Simon Kjær
    Malick Thiaw
    Alessandro Florenzi
    Matteo Gabbia
    Ismaël Bennacer
    DM
    Ruben Loftus-Cheek
    Tijjani Reijnders
    Yunus Musah
    AM
    Rafael Leão
    Christian Pulisic
    Noah Okafor
    Samuel Chukwueze
    CF
    Luka Jović

    I’ll leave it to the money people and the scouts to find out who to sign!

        1. For the DM ,that’s precisely the reason – Old(experience). I understand the project and Verrattis financial operations may not be cheap salary wise but first we’ve to make sure a department is good enough by any means then consider filling everything else with youngsters. Giroud and Kjaer are leaving. Jorginho /Verratti not as old and should be able to replace that character and leadership, especially given how the midfield is lacking that. But I’m open their younger version – an established quality DM with good leadership.
