AC Milan are looking for a few precise and targeted reinforcements in the summer window after addressing other situations.
Anto Vitiello’s latest editorial for MilanNews reports how Milan have been working concretely on Tiemoue Bakayoko’s return since June.
The player is a profile appreciated by Elliott Management Corporation, who wanted his return even if Ralf Rangnick had arrived as the new manager.
Bakayoko for his part has always given the maximum willingness to return, but he would have to lower his salary to make it happen and in recent weeks there has been a strong rapprochement.
Milan are trying to meet Chelsea’s asking price one way or another. There are two ways of doing this: to try to buy the Frenchman outright for a maximum of €20m, or to secure him on a paid loan with an obligation to buy at €22-23m.
On Monday 24 August Milan’s preseason will begin at Milanello as all players and staff will undergo COVID-19 tests, and the next day will be a return to the field with a morning session.
Stefano Pioli has no big demands for the market in the meantime, as his main desires are to renew Ibrahimovic and Donnarumma, but he would like some precise and targeted signings.
