CorSera: Two out and two in – Milan to undergo changes in defence and midfield

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are likely to lose two players on free transfers ahead of next season but already have their replacements lined up, a report claims.

According to what il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) are reporting, the Rossoneri management know that Franck Kessie and Alessio Romagnoli are currently destined to depart at the end of June when their contracts expire, and they must be replaced.

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara already have the names in mind and both are from Lille, with Renato Sanches chosen as their heir to the Ivorian and Sven Botman the man who should take the spot of the Italian defender.

For the former, the price should be set at around €20m given that the Portuguese international has a contract which expires in 2023, but for the Dutchman things are already practically done and the operations is in a good place to go through ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.

  1. So many rumors but one thing for sho is that those two, no.79 and no.13 are thinking of greener pastures. You can’t hate them, they have done a lot over the years since 2015 and 2018 onwards. It’s interesting because, Milan the club has been financially crippled for so long, so the club couldn’t negotiate that well and basically had to make profits from selling players: Hauge, André Silva as an example. Recently, agents have shown how weaknesses can damage the reputation when we see how former no.99 and former no.10 could walk out. The ideal vision most fans want, is having young players who want to stay long enough and become legends as they win. That’s simply not going to happen. It is a fantasy, unless you have the players themselves who sit down and go like: “okay, I don’t want to go anywhere else, and I will not accept anything more, all I want is to make my name here.” To be a player of this calibre you would have to give up a lot. Everyone today is scared of being that selfless, so it will be rare.
