MN: Four signings and several sales – Milan expecting a busy August

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will soon complete their eighth signing of the summer but they are not expected to stop there with four more potential additions.

MilanNews writes recall that Milan have so far acquired Sportiello, Romero, Loftus-Cheek, Pulisic, Okafor, Chukwueze, Reijnders and soon Musah will join, but Furlani and Moncada have yet to complete the squad.

More than anything, some tweaks will be needed such as a deputy to Theo Hernandez in the role of left-back. Riccardo Calafiori from Basel is the favourite with Rogerio from Sassuolo as the first alternative.

Another central defender to replace Gabbia will be needed after he moved to Villarreal on loan, plus another midfielder and another striker like Alejo Veliz. This will be done without crazy expenses and rather it will be about seizing opportunities.

Some sales will be needed too to balance things. Fodé Ballo-Touré and Divock Origi should join Ante Rebic in heading out of the exit door, while Mattia Caldara is tipped to leave and Lorenzo Colombo could be loaned out.

Watch out for possible offers for Yacine Adli and Charles De Ketelaere too, both of whom can be sold.

    1. Are you serious this mercato is boring?
      You said that just because you don’t understand anything or you just hate the new management. It doesn’t matter to you how hard they try to make Milan a competitive team. Even though I know it will take time with the new signings but this is smart mercato we haven’t seen for years. Don’t try to justify your hate bro!

  1. New management really want to build a new Milan. Heard they want to get rig of Calabria too and replace him with a better RB.

    Well… One side i agree, but the other side, we need Italian more in Italian club

    However, become champions first is more important, short term wise

    1. FYI, Musah was born in the USA when his mother was on vacation there. Musah has never lived in the US.

      Shortly after his birth, his family moved to Italy, and he lived in Castelfranco Veneto for 9 years, the longest period of time that he has lived in any one place.

      He joined the youth club of Giorgione Calcio and was immediately recognized as a talent.

      At age nine, his parents moved to England for work purposes, and he joined the Arsenal youth academy. He lived in England for 7 years and trained with the Arsenal academy, and was called up to a number of the England youth national teams.

      In 2019, at age 16, he decided not to stay at Arsenal, and moved to Valencia. A USMNT staff member with connections to Valencia discovered his US birthright, and so began this vigorous wooing process to break him free of England.

      It helped that at age 17, the USMNT were willing to put him immediately into its senior squad whereas with England, he would have probably been stuck in their youth teams for another 5-7 years. And so he made it into the USMNT World Cup roster for 2022, starting all four matches.

      So there you go. Musah is actually more Italian than English or American, if you go by the time he has spent in each country.

    2. They don’t want to get rid of Calabria. They just want a better player to fill the RB slot.

      But selling Calabria would also mean pure profit to the budget.
