Gianluca Di Marzio has made the bold claim that AC Milan are set for a busy and important summer transfer window after a quiet January mercato.
Speaking on Sky (via MilanNews), the journalist revealed his belief that the club’s owners Elliott Management have never created problems for the management due to budget reasons, especially if the players that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have chosen are young and quality players.
He adds that ‘there is no limit’ to the amount that Elliott are willing to spend but Milan’s decision not to sign anyone other than Marko Lazetic in this January market is linked to the fact that the summer market ‘will be a very important market’.
There will be the loss of Franck Kessie to deal with as he will not renew his contract unless something sensational happens, so ‘a strong midfielder like Renato Sanches’ could arrive, while Alessio Romagnoli’s future must be resolved.
Di Marzio states that Milan ‘absolutely need to sign one if not two strong central defenders’ and that one ‘will surely be Botman’. On Bremer there will be competition from Inter. In midfield they tried to catch Renato Sanches but there was not enough time.
