While the AC Milan management wait for the sale of the club to go through in the coming weeks, there is already planning underway for the summer window.
As our colleagues at SempreMilan.it report, there is a lot of attention on how Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will strengthen but they are also duty bound to sell any players that are not deemed part of the plans, to free funds and slots in the squad.
Franck Kessie and Alessio Romagnoli are both destined to leave on free transfers, while Milan are hoping to sell winger Samu Castillejo for €4-5m euros given he has a market in Spain.
Fode Ballo-Touré can also leave for the same amount meanwhile, and Tiemoue Bakayoko will not be bought with contacts underway between the Rossoneri and Chelsea to discuss his future.
At the moment it seems unlikely that Milan will buy Junior Messias permanently unless Crotone give a discount, and Ante Rebic remains a puzzle because he was decisive against Lazio but will have to remain consistent until the end of the season. If an offer of more than €25m arrives, the Croatian could also leave.
Daniel Maldini and Marko Lazetic could be heading for a loan spell and Tommaso Pobega may be loaned out again too if Milan find better players in that position and reinforce the midfield.
Brahim Diaz will also be evaluated, and Maldini and Massara could offer his early return to Real Madrid to try to snatch Marco Asensio. It will be necessary to understand how Alessandro Florenzi will return after a second knee surgery this season, and finally Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s future remains wide open.
