CorSport: Investcorp plan to back current directors and make 4-5 significant signings

By Oliver Fisher -

Some of Investcorp’s plans for when they potentially take over control of AC Milan are beginning to emerge, according to a report.

According to il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews) Investcorp will dictate their guidelines and state their attentions regarding the summer transfer market as soon as the closing of the acquisition takes place, but they are still already thinking about the moves to make.

There has been no contact between the Bahrain-based fund and the current management who are continuing with the work done in recent months through meetings and interviews with agents and intermediaries.

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will remain under Investcorp as the technical director and sporting director but there are still doubts about the CEO Ivan Gazidis, while reinforcements are expected to make Milan even more competitive.

At least 4-5 significant purchases will be made to strengthen the squad, with central defender Sven Botman expected to arrive from Lille as one of the first. Until the closing of the deal between Investcorp and Elliott nothing will be formalised – including the renewals of some players – but once it is done the new era can begin.

  1. Out:

    Castilejo
    Kessie
    Brahim
    Messias
    Salemakers
    Romagnoli
    Mirante

    In:
    Botman
    Beloti or Origi
    Sanches
    Brandt or Dybala
    Tavarnier
    Adli
    Pobega
    Berardi

  2. Providing they don’t interfere in Maladini and Masarra’s work and just sign the cheques, things will be fine. Botman would be a stupid signing.

    1. Do you watch AC Milan lost yesterday in coppa? You don’t know Tomori – kalulu tired and play disastrous? And you want to depend on old player Kjaer 33 years already suffer ACL or king Romagnoli that always missing on big game as reserved? You cannot win trophy without depth

  3. 4-5 significant purchase. I hope they signing botman,Antony,Charles deketelare,Dominik szobolai. Don’t forget to sell castilejo,caldara,Rebic(often injury),ballo Toure,lord saladmaker. Return player to their parent club : bakayoko,brahim,junior. If have some fund left or wanna bet on striker go Darwin Nunez ( just dream signing)

  4. I’m sure Lewandowski would be succes we need to snatch him from barca.
    Antony from Ajax on the right
    And sanches aswell as nr 10.
    Maybe bring origi for free.
    For deffence ask Maldini.

  5. the perfect starting 11 would be in my opinion:

    Attack: Leao, Orgig, Sterling ( speed)

    Mid: Tonali , Dybala, Sanches

    Defence: Theo , Tomori, Botman , Calabria

    GK: Magic Mike

    Bench: Pogbega, Bennacer , Beradi, Rebic (yes i still believe in him) Asensio , Isco , Nunez, Kamara, Nkuku
