AC Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have two weeks to sign a new midfielder, and they now exactly the mould of player that they want.
MilanNews report that the absence of a physically strong player capable of recovering as many balls as possible was evident against Udinese, while depth is also crucial given that the objectives for the season are to retain the Scudetto, go further in the Champions League and possibly win the Coppa Italia too.
Maldini and Massara know that a new player is needed who is capable of guaranteeing what Franck Kessie was capable of, even if it will be difficult to replace a player of his calibre. The ideal profile in terms of athleticism, physicality and guarantees in terms of fitness seems to be Raphael Onyedika of FC Midtjylland.
The Nigerian is viewed as ideal because the Danish club want just €7m to sell him – a figure certainly within the budget – and the hope is to close the deal in a short time, given the conditions of the operation.
