The change in formation to a three-man defence could well have an effect on AC Milan’s strategy in the summer window, a report claims.
Qualification for the Champions League is very important for Milan as it would allow Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara to have more possibilities when it comes to the mercato. Calciomercato.it report that there is unlikely to be any crazy spending but that the budget, which could still be around €50m, can be enriched thanks to sales and moving forward in the Champions League.
The choice on the deputy goalkeeper was made some time ago and Marco Sportiello will sign on a free, while a Kessie-like profile is sought for the midfield. Maldini and Massara have not let go of the hope that Vranckx could be the next Thiaw, though he has a €11-12m option to buy.
The big investment is likely to come in attack with a signing worth €40-50m given the need to sign a new centre-forward for the future. Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund is a profile the Rossoneri management like a lot, but there is likely to be a lot of competition.
Folarin Balogun of Reims (on loan from Arsenal), Jonathan David of Lille and and Elye Wahi from Montpellier are also on the list of targets.
evanilson will be good
Jonathan David and elye wahi are beasts same goes for balogun but if I rank them it’s : Jonathan David Elye Wahi and Folarin Balogun
how is elye better than balogun
they are only wants to invest on free agent player, especially on striker. we already have chaka traore, colombo and lazetic. why they not should try on it…
I hope Jonathan David finally signs for another club, so I don’t have to read his name connected with Milan.
He is such an average player.
Rather have Colombo starting than spending money on David.
Balogun sounds like a 4th evolution is Squirtle. Which makes him the best choice imo.
Arsenal aren’t going to let Balogun go anywhere
david is such trash, will be a piatek rehash. grossly overrated and overpriced
If that’s the budget 🤔 🤣 then we shall go for a free transfer like brereton diaz.
“ The big investment is likely to come in attack with a signing worth €40-50m given the need to sign a new centre-forward for the future.” LOLOLOLO. Ya with what money – that would be our ENTIRE budget for the year – I’m sure instead we will end up with Origi, Giroud, Columbo and the young Serbian kid. Fantastic 🤪
This season our budget only 45m euro transfer. Next season maybe just similar ( must finish top 4 serie A ). Buying new striker will used all our budget, so like you say we will end up with giroud,origi,colombo & lazetic as striker. If only they buy enzo 18m euro not chasing renato sanchez maybe we can get budget from selling enzo and already have quality right wing + striker
