CM: Maldini to meet Jorge Mendes soon – five names will be on the table

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan director Paolo Maldini is planning to speak with agent Jorge Mendes and discuss four potential targets ahead of the summer window, a report claims.

According to a report from, Maldini and Massara are expecting to talk with Mendes and one of the points of discussion will obviously be the renewal of Rafael Leao, who Milan want to close a deal for before the end of the season otherwise they will be forced to sell.

Then, Milan are ready to listen to any opportunities offered by the CEO of Gestifute such as Marco Asensio, who remains a possibility on a free transfer even if there is competition from Barcelona.

Meanwhile, Mendes would like to send his client Adama Traore – a right winger whose contract with Wolves is expiring – to Serie A. Napoli like him, but he will also be offered to Milan who are on the lookout for potential attacking reinforcements.

Another profile held in high esteem by Maldini is Alejandro Balde of Barcelona but it seems the chances of him arriving are very slim if not impossible.

Finally, a surprise new name could be that of Manuel Ugarte, a powerful Uruguayan midfielder who is impressing with Sporting CP and could provide reinforcement to a department that has struggled without Franck Kessie.

  1. Just give him the best offer contract for leao(highest AC Milan can do for one player without breaking rule FFP) . If leao reject that offer just sell him fast in summer to highest bidder. The other player mendez bring not suit with pioli tactic 343

  2. Yes to Ugarte, he would be amazing, Milan could use some of that Uruguayan grit. Same goes for Retegui, Argentines and Uruguayans give their all on the pitch like no other.

  3. Ugarte-Tonali-Bennacer midfield would be terrific if we revert to 4-3-3, but the forward line needs an overhaul. I would still sell Leao if we get like 60-80 million offers.

    Calabria/Kalulu – Thiaw – Tomori – Theo

    Ugarte – Tonali – Bennacer

    CDK(RW/RAM) – New Striker/Colombo/Lazetic – New LW/Leao if he stays
    Rotate Chaka Traore and maybe El Hilali at the RW/LW roles.

    Or, 4-2-3-1, with Ugarte – Tonali pivot, and trying Bennacer at CAM, CDK at RW/RAM, and a new LW-or Leao if he stays.
