Tuttosport: Milan have two missions after De Ketelaere signing – both depend on PSG

By Oliver Fisher -

Now AC Milan have wrapped up the signing of Charles De Ketelaere, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have turned their attention to the other reinforcements needed.

As reported this morning by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), the directors know that a centre-back is needed and Abdou Diallo of Paris Saint-Germain is the number one target. Milan are hoping for a loan with option to buy given that he is not in PSG’s plans.

The Senegal international would be preferred to Tottenham’s Japhet Tanganga, not just because he has greater experience but also and above all because he can also act as a left-back if necessary. Once a new defender has arrived, the Rossoneri will sanction Matteo Gabbia’s loan to Sampdoria.

Milan’s dream is to convince Renato Sanches to join as Franck Kessie’s replacement but since he learned of PSG’s possible interest he has had his mind set on that. The Rossoneri management are waiting and hoping that the Ligue 1 champions will not make a concrete move, while Maldini has made a bid that Lille accepted.

In terms of alternatives, Carney Chukwuemeka of Aston Villa is on the list but there is big competition to land him, while Pape Mate Sarr of Tottenham is an option too.

    1. Apparently, because the media brainwashed some Milanisti to believe the story they fabricated. Seems a lot already forget about Noa Lang nonsense. From the beginning, I know Milan was on CDK, not Lang, it just doesn’t make sense buying LW when who is needed is RW/AM.

      And now this Diallo replacing Gabbia nonsense. Let me ask this:

      Are Milan ready to compete in UCL with just 22 players?

      Are Milan ready to marginalize 5 players by excluding them from UCL squad?

      Are Milan ready to depend on primavera players (most have awful campaign last season) if some of the first team players who are registered at UCL squad become unavailable?

      Replacing Gabbia with Diallo is like waving white flag on UCL.

      1. Buying Diallo would mean sending Gabbia on loan to develop into a super star which maybe compromised by keeping him in Milan. Secondly Diallo will solve two problems, CB and LB consequently ballo you’re can be loaned

        1. Loaning Gabbia means reducing UCL squad size.

          Diallo might not even make the UCL squad as 5 players need to be excluded. He is just League 1 reject.

          1. You are a fool psg bench is better than one quarter of Seria a teams diallo won the afcon with Senegal and he is better all round player than half a Milan back line

          2. The reason Milan won scudetto last season despite missing key piece (AM) for the starting line-up is because Milan have deep bench who can step up in time of needs.

            If you can’t give them enough credits for the scudetto they have won, you are not true Milanisti.

      2. You need to relax. Do you really think M&M don’t know about the homegrown registration requirements??? Are you that crazy or have zero faith in M&M lol. Everyday same crazy posts about registration. Relax pal M&M know what they are doing

  1. Sempermilan stop lying on this dude. That’s a human being you are tarnishing his image.

    Sanchez have always wanted to Join Milan, he even wanted to join on January but you can not pay a Sanchez calibre of player 3.2m for 5 years when he is just 24. PSG is is willing to give 4.5m but want to offload 3 mids before they bring him, so why won’t he wait……you just keep making this guy look like an assshole, go check his Twitter, he literally wanted to join but let’s be honest 3.2m is poor, considering we are getting him for just 15m…..where the hell van we get that quality for 15m now??? You want us to end with bakayoko, pobega and krunic as backup????¿?

    I trust Maldini, he knows this already, thats why he will keep meeting Mendes to know how they can improve the offer….if we miss out on Sanchez, the loss will affect us more cos I don’t see any of those three back up doing anything but cost us match, preseason was clear enough for everyone to see that our only double pivot is tonali and benaceer
