GdS: Young players and low wages – Milan’s transfer strategy is clear

By Isak Möller -

Now that some time has passed since the closure of the transfer window, it’s the perfect opportunity to analyse AC Milan’s choices. Two key factors emerge when doing so, as a report highlights. 

The Rossoneri’s summer was quite special, starting with the renewals of Maldini and Massara, and ending with the takeover of RedBird Capital. In the end, Milan strengthened where they needed to and managed to escape the worst criticisms.

As reported by Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews), Milan’s transfer strategy this past summer and for the future is clear: young players with low wages. Divock Origi was the only ‘experience’ signing, even though Charles De Ketelaere wasn’t cheap.

We have seen it in the past as well, that is mixing youth with a few signings for experience (Kalulu, Tonali, Maignan, Giroud etc). But the overall strategy of the club remains the same: they want to have a young squad and increase the value of their players.

  1. And then what happens when these young cheap players develop into stars (Leao, Tonali, Kalulu, Mike, Theo…)???? Do we sell for profit and become Atalanta? Or do we build with our core young players and build a powerhouse? Time will tell very soon w Leao’s renewal. Let us hope Redbird chooses the latter course.

  2. Milan really need to negotiate with their sponsors or get other sponsors so they will have higher income and can pay better salaries and they need to make better shirts so other fans will buy their shirts too like psg celtic and ajax to get more income and eventually more fans

  3. Personally I don’t this Jorge mendes is ever gonna look for leao future he’s gonna go for money and imo this renewal isn’t gonna take place I don’t see leao staying here
