As Hakan Calhanoglu decided not to renew his contract at the beginning of the summer, one of AC Milan’s priorities was the No.10 position. Although they did secure Brahim Diaz, the fans were disappointed in the end.
On the final day of the transfer window, the Rossoneri announced the signing of Junior Messias from Serie B side Crotone. He’s meant as an option both for the No.10 role and right-wing one, but it didn’t exactly get the fans excited.
As Andrea Longoni states in his latest piece for MilanNews, the No.10 situation was handled poorly by the club. In the beginning, we were led to be that an outcast from a big club could arrive on loan, such as Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea.
Then, there was talk of Nikola Vlasic from CSKA Moscow and finally Brest man Romain Faivre. ultimately, though, the Rossoneri brought in Messias, who was their final option on the market. That paints a picture of what went down, with the club forced to settle on him.
