AC Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have a clear vision in mind with regards to the attacking midfielder role, a report claims.
Despite winning the Scudetto last season, there will be some overhaul in the squad as Alessio Romagnoli is close to Lazio, Franck Kessié already has an agreement with Barcelona, Zlatan Ibrahimović’s future is uncertain, Renato Sanches and Sven Botman could both arrive from Lille and Divock Origi seems destined to join on a free transfer.
There will be some loan returns like Tommaso Pobega and Lorenzo Colombo who will need their futures resolving, while renewals like those of Sandro Tonali, Rafael Leao, Pierre Kalulu, Fikayo Tomori, Ismael Bennacer and more will be tackled.
Regarding the playmaker role, PianetaMilan reports that Brahim Díaz will be kept for the second year of his loan from Real Madrid and Renato Sanches can also occupy that role, just as Kessie – the man he is replacing – did a few times last season.
The idea is also to give confidence to Yacine Adli who returns to the Rossoneri after his loan at Bordeaux and is a natural in the attacking midfielder role. Therefore, unless Ante Rebić is sold, it is possible that only one new forward is signed such as a right winger who can also cover the No.10 position.
