Mediaset: Milan could complete five operations before the market closes – the details

By Oliver Fisher -

As we enter the final few days of the transfer market, there is reportedly expected to be a hive of activity surrounding AC Milan.

According to SportMediaset (via MilanNews), tomorrow could be a decisive day regarding the return of Tiémoué Bakayoko from Chelsea. Milan need a midfielder as Tommaso Pobega is all set to leave on a new loan spell, and the Frenchman would be a useful element for the double pivot.

An attacking midfielder is also being sought by Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara, and it seems like Porto’s Jesús Corona and PSG’s Pablo Sarabia are the two players in contention as things currently stand.

There is also interest in Junior Messias for the role of right winger, while Samuel Castillejo will leave the club should LaLiga side Getafe come forward and offer a figure of €7-8m. Five operations could therefore be completed, when factoring in Bakayoko’s return, Pobega’s exit, a signing for the playmaker role, Castillejo’s potential sale and Messias’ arrival.

    Messias why?

      I can’t give you an exact answer, but there are various quotas on registering a squad for Serie A games, as well as the CL.

      Messias’s been in Italy for a long time. Maybe he fits some requirements that Castillejo doesn’t.

    Don’t forget the mercenary Kessie and his replacement!

      If Milan didn’t have any “mercenaries” on their team, they would have a six man squad right now: Calabria, Gabbia, Pobega, Colombo, Plizzari and Daniele Maldini.

      That’s it. Every other football player in Milan’s employ is a “mercenary”. They have been developed by another team, and bought by Milan for cold, hard cash.

      And when Milan fails to put up the cold, hard cash they’re worth, they leave. That’s how it works. The Milan academy is only a tiny part of their greatness. The reason why they won all those championships is MONEY. That’s the reason why any team wins anything.

        Totally agree! Allow me to add Tonali and (maybe) Zlatan. I would love to see Pessina and Zaccagni. The guy was simply fantastic on Day 1
