AC Milan’s clash with Man Utd was an important one, not only to confirm the improvement under Giampaolo, but also to get a glimpse of Jack Bonaventura who played for the first time in 282 days.
The Italian midfielder was a serious loss for the Rossoneri last season and even though he only played a few minutes, the little time he spent on the pitch was reassuring on many levels.
As a result of his quick recovery, MilanNews.it believes that Milan’s transfer strategy has changed. After previously eyeing a deal for Veretout, the idea is now completely different.
With the signings of Bennacer and Krunic, as well as the permanence of Biglia and the recovery of Bonaventura, the Rossoneri midfield is now more complete than it has been for years.
Two directors (Bennacer, Biglia) and two hard-workers (Kessie, Krunic), in addition to three technical players in the shape of Bonaventura, Calhanoglu and Paqueta. Only competing in Serie A this season, the numbers sure add up.
