CM: Milan consider following Juventus with ‘Next Gen’ team in Serie C – the details

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are giving serious thought to the idea of having a second team like Juventus have with their Next Gen side, a report claims.

According to, the FIGC is preparing to discuss the issue of second teams in the meeting of the Federal Council which will take place on April 19. At the moment, only Juve have one as their ‘Next Gen’ team took over the legacy of the Under 23s.

The meeting of the Federal Council has been convened for 11:30 CEST on Wednesday 19 April and among the items on the agenda is: “…discussion and proposals; participation of Serie A Second Teams in the 2023/2024 Serie C season  consequent decisions; competent appointments; regulatory changes; any measures pursuant to art. 20, paragraph 6, Federal Statute on proposal of LND (assembly delegates); various and possible.”

Milan are one of the teams interested in launching a team to compete in the league. Ricky Massara attended a forum called ‘Second teams in Italy and in Europe, a model for the future?’ back in November, which the president of the Lega Serie A Lorenzo Casini, the president of the FIGC Gabriele Gravina and Francesco Ghirelli – then president of the Lega Pro – attended.

Milan are evaluating the opportunity, perhaps with new rules to manage the project, while Monza, Roma and Sassuolo also seem to be interested in the idea.

  1. This is a must have.

    Thiaw, CDK, Vranckx, etc could all have been getting minutes in their legs, etc all season.

    Would be a very good move.

    1. It’s a good move but we should pay attention to the money needed to run two clubs. As we also prepare to build a new stadium, wont want us to be in financial problem because of it.

  2. This would be for younger players. CDK is 35M, he wouldnt want to go and play in Serie C, nor would any of the first team – the standard is too low. If they needed to go on loan it would be a Serie A club, or lowest, Serie B.

  3. This is a no-brainer. You have to respect what Juve have done in this area. Miretti, Fagioli, Soule, Iling Jr., Barrenechea – that’s FIVE homegrown players that came through their NextGen who have played important minutes for them this year. Also increases the chances of having more Italians which is always good. It’s the right model to follow.

  4. I love Red Bull’s strategy of having teams in several countries. They are also great at scouting talents in Asia, Africa, the USA, and so on. The football world is much bigger than just Europe and South America nowadays. If it gives us a chance to find another Haaland then why not?

  5. When our next gen team able to compete in Serie B after they get promoted.. that would be a serious B-Team and nothing but good for the team overall
