ML: Milan thinking of long-term striker solution – big investment next summer possible

By Oliver Fisher -

Stefano Pioli will be able to lean on the veteran experience of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Olivier Giroud next season, but there are already thoughts about more long-terms options.

MilanLive writes that the management want to sign a young striker who would to grow behind the duo of Ibrahimovic and Giroud. The hot name at the moment is Kaio Jorge of Santos, but it will be necessary to understand if Santos will sell him under the conditions that Milan have offered, i.e. a very low transfer fee given that his deal expires in five months.

No big surprises are expected in the current mercato, but the report adds that a sizeable investment could very well be made next summer, when Ibrahimovic will be 40 and Giroud 35, especially given that the former could also retire.

An important investment could be made on Dusan Vlahovic, who has not yet renewed with La Viola and without an agreement by next summer, a farewell would be practically certain given his deal runs until 2023.

  1. lets just put this to bed. Vlahovic is not coming to milan…ever…well, maybe when hes 36. If he doesn’t re-sign with fiorentina he’s not coming to us for a 3m a year salary. City, Chelsea, PSG, Juve, Real, United, Bayern! These are the guys who can take him with 12M a year salaries. These guys can happily chuck 60-100M at a player plus a signed check for their salary. Not Milan. I wish we could. If he keeps himself fit he will be a phenomenal player but he’s already shot past our financial capabilities. Should have got him last season for 20m. I HOPE SEMPREMILAN DOESN’T FEED US THIS STORY FOR THE WHOLE OF NEXT SEASON

  2. Kid just netted 7 goals in a single game, the rest of his team 4. Let me repeat that, he scored almost x2 as many as his entire team managed to do in 90 minutes in a pre-season game. Let that sink in…. He is way too expensive for Milan. He is amazing, but we can’t afford him.

  3. As long as he is not a ‘loan plus option to buy’ player, he will not be transferred to Milan. We need to get used with the club’s transfer strategy, given the economic context. Unless the club is sold, Elliot is not going to have investments comparable to the one’s of M City, PSG, etc. It is what it is. Hopefully, we will get decent transfers in this window to fill our holes.

  4. milan current transfer policy won’t allow it. fans doesn’t need false hope like this. it’s better to have actual fact being delivered. than news of possible but impossible.
