MN: Milan building around 10 ‘fundamental vertebrae’ – additions will be for quality not quantity

By Oliver Fisher -

While the mercato is in full flow, there is a core of players that Stefano Pioli and AC Milan will continue to support and build around.

MilanNews describes them as a ‘fundamental vertebrae’ on which to build the present and the future of the club. At the moment there is one place under question and that is the role of the starting attacking midfielder, but other than that continuity will be the key word.

The report mentions the ten players that are almost immovable from the starting XI: Theo Hernandez, Fikayo Tomori, Simon Kjaer, Davide Calabria, Franck Kessie, Ante Rebic, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Mike Maignan and Alexis Saelemaekers.

Alessio Romagnoli could also be added to this list of names as the captain and a quality defender who is vying to rediscover his importance in the Rossoneri project. Pending market developments, Pioli’s team looks forward to next season with confidence thanks to a great unity among the group.

Now, the aim is to build on the group not in terms of quantity but above all in quality, which is why Milan are looking young, talented players ready to make an impact. In addition to relying on their untouchables, Milan want to find new untouchables too.

  1. Untouchable? Hauge was good but is being sold and we consider leao untouchable, sell castillejo and leao and caldara ASAP they are dead woods you don’t trust anybody , not giving maldini chance, he was better than leao on left what you want? Selling locatelli, cristante now hauge? You want to create nemesis players or what?enough of this banter I want to just tell maldini that hauge should stay leao is the one to leave!

    1. Very well said….. Leao is trusted yet Hauge (with very limited playing time yet gives us maximum possible impact) is to be sold.

  2. Get Illic and Ziyech – renew with Romagnoli and alternate between 4-2-3-1 and 3-4-1-2

    Add a young and promising Attacker and possibly Belotti for the Zlatan replacement

  3. From the article “… Milan are looking young, talented players…”
    Exactly like Giroud, Ilicic, Ziyech…
