AC Milan do not have the squad to challenge for the title currently nor do they have the economic power at present to ensure they can do so before the season is over, a journalist has claimed.
During his column for Calciomercato.com, Cristiano Ruiu states that Milan do not have the economic resources or rather the financial freedom to make a Vlahovic-level signing, and that the club and ownership believe that this squad is already equipped for the objectives set: to secure another return to the Champions League.
He adds that in the squad Many players have grown and improved a lot in their awareness, but the technical level of the team has remained the same. This is not insignificant because the progress from three years ago is clear to see, but then the feeling is that Milan are already behind Inter while Juventus will have different economic resources to strengthen themselves.
A signing is not expected to arrive for the centre-back department, Ruiu claims, while the attack has been struggling lately. Ibrahimovic got injured during the Juventus game but it is not a surprise for a 40-year-old in a high intensity game during a cold January night to suffer from the hard pitch.
At the end of the season the ownership must really think about how ambitious they want to be. The priority cannot be the renewal of Ibra like last year, but that of young core players like Leao and Theo Hernandez.
