AC Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are trying to get the best out of their small remaining transfer budget in the final stages of the window.
Alessandro Sugoni spoke to Sky (via MilanNews) to give an update on the Rossoneri’s mercato and the various situations, beginning by declaring that Milan ‘have about a 10 million budget for the midfielder, for the defender, for the gross salaries of those signings and for renewals’.
The current target for the midfield is Jean Onana who did well last season in Ligue 1 at Bordeaux, but they were then relegated to Ligue 2 and the club are having to sell some players due to their economic situation.
Milan could try to land him for a total operation worth €5-6m with the inclusion of bonuses which is around the amount that they had allocated to the signing of Raphael Onyedika but which was then rejected by FC Midtjylland.
In the background remains Aster Vranckx of Wolfsburg: the Bundesliga side opened to a loan with option to buy deal with the option set at around €13m.
