MN: Milan could sell four players to unlock the incoming market – the names

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking to sell a number of fringe players to raise funds that could activate the incoming market, according to a report.

MilanNews writes how when the squad reconvenes for the start of preseason on Thursday, they will start the meeting with a largely incomplete team due to injuries, unavailability due to commitments with national teams and general gaps in the squad.

The transfer market is complicated because Milan – after having committed €41m to sign Mike Maignan and Fikayo Tomori – will have to raise money from sales. Jens Petter Hauge (wanted by Eintracht Frankfurt and Wolfsburg), Tommaso Pobega (an Atalanta target), Samu Castillejo (wanted by Real Betis) and Rafael Leao are among those seen as sellable to make cash.

Given that time is ticking, the report mentions how it cannot take 40-45 days to conduct negotiations like the Sandro Tonali signing, to avoid the risk of arriving at the beginning of the season with still some areas still to fix.
