MN: Milan wait for news from ownership as first two names stand out in centre-back pursuit

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s adventure in Europe ended against Liverpool but attention now turns to three crucial Serie A matches before the Christmas break and crucially the January window.

MilanNews reports that Milan director Paolo Maldini was inclined to do nothing up until a few days ago but Simon Kjaer’s injury – which will rule him out for the rest of the season – has changed the plans of the management as they do not believe facing the second half of the season with Fikayo Tomori, Alessio Romagnoli and Matteo Gabbia is enough.

The next few days will be crucial in determining whether the ownership will give the green light to an important investment or whether Maldini and Massara will have to do a loan with option to buy (or obligation) operation.

There are a few names that stick out above others such as Nikola Milenkovic of Fiorentina and Andreas Christensen of Chelsea and while for now there are no real negotiations, they are still tracks that could get warmer in the coming weeks. Everything will depend on the budget that Elliott will make available.

    Get Kamara or Omeragic.
    Christensen is good but too expensive, Milenkovic not that much better than Romagnoli and only 2y younger.

    We need to build around Tonali now that Kessie is leaving. Kamara, Nketiah, Omeragic, Yilmaz – cheap 20yo players who are already proven – no one wants another Leo Duarte situation.

    1. El Zhar says:

      Kamara is obvious choice if Kessie leaving,, for CB will see the budget first as we may need another striker signed…

  2. Zsolt Bertalan says:

    Looking at Kamara makes sense but that does not solve the CB situation.

  3. Sobig says:

    I think Bremer of Torino is the right choice for our CB and R.sanches is the right replacement for kesie in the midfield dept.

    1. Weezy says:

      This is the best choice but Maldini and fans have been mentioning some strange names, Sanchez is a beast in midfield while Bremer is a beast in defence

  4. Andreas Schwab says:

    still suprised that we have 29.2mio for middle class defender, i am 100% sure that you can buy exactly that profile for 10-15mio. Simakan is 50+mio sale in 2-3y

    Another example: Maldini wants to have Piatkowski like hell (very good young talent from Poland) But that guy decided to play in Austrian League RBS instead of Milan. After 2years playing UCL even in spring 😉 😉 Milan can have Piatwoski for 20mio.
    surprisingly i have read many articles here that Milan wants to be that club who earns the develompent money?? They have brought Florenzi this year (because of Kalulu biggest shame ever!!) if Florenzi hadn’t got injured, Kalulu wouldn’t have played again, but there’s nothing more important for these young talents than being in the starting line-up, which is why a Piatkowski chooses Salzburg over Milan.
    Roco Simic son of Milan’s Dario Simic, again RBS Player and not Milan Player? I have many shirts from Maldini, loved him as player, but Manager?

    Good discussion, bad that we agree this transfer window looks bad.
    Kamara can play as CB and his contract ends in 22, so we could get him now cheap.

    Milenkovic is at Romagnoli level, whats the point. At least Bremer is better, so improvement. Get sby younger still if we dont have money.

    Anyway CB is not that critical – Kalulu can play there, Gabbia needs more chances.

    Save money for striker where we now have only one 41 yo man.

  6. Shal says:

    Can we sell Theo and sign Vlahovic? They are almost the same price but value added is significantly different considering how hungry we are in forwards.

    1. Yomi babs says:

      Very good idea. Theo’s overrated.
