AC Milan are already feeling optimistic about completing two major coups in the summer transfer window, according to a report.
Enzo Bucchioni’s editorial for TMW writes that Milan tried to address their centre-back problem by bringing forward a big investment from the upcoming summer, as they tried hard to convince Lille to sign Sven Botman but they were unable to break down their resistance.
However, the Dutchman has an agreement with Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara which bodes well for the summer, even Lille were not convinced by the idea of selling him midway through the current season.
Franck Kessie’s exit to Barcelona is gathering steam and the management have already decided on who should replace him: Renato Sanches. Botman and Renato have both given the green light to a potential summer move as they deem Milan a ‘welcome destination’, with the journalist adding that ‘there is optimism’ both operations will go ahead.
