MN: Milan have ‘identified’ next coach – the summer mercato that will support him

By Oliver Fisher -

The AC Milan leadership have clear ideas for the coming weeks about the profile that they will look to bring in during the summer window, according to one journalist.

Gerry Cardinale gave an interview on stage at the Qatar Economic Forum yesterday and as part of it he looked to reassure Milan fans regarding his vision for the club. Now, that talk must become actions.

As per the latest from Antonio Vitiello of MilanNews, the vision of the Milan management for the new head coach and the summer mercato can now be clearly outlined.

The coach

Regarding the new manager, it appears from the club that the profile has been identified but not yet fully secure, and it and will be a young coach with potential.

One of the key things is that they will have attacking tactical ideas, playing a 4-3-3 or a 4-2-3-1 system, and the name will be announced at the end of the season.

For Milan the choice of coach is delicate, but equally important is strengthening the squad and bringing in strong players that raise the overall level.

The mercato

Geoffrey Moncada and his team will focus heavily on improving the squad and there is an ‘ambitious’ summer transfer campaign planned to support the new head coach.

The following players will definitely arrive: a new striker, a new central midfielder, a new right-back and a new central defender. Thus, it could be that a new spine of the team is constructed.

  1. Young and loves playing a 4-3-3 or a 4-2-3-1 system. Should be Motta, because he can’t be Xabi,Xavi,Arteta,Nagelsmann,nor Abate.

  2. Based on the formation I hope it’s either Motta or Conceição but I am worried that it will be Fonseca. He is not a bad option but I don’t see Fonseca as an upgrade to Pioli.

    I just don’t think he is what this team needs. We need a motivator and a strong character in the dressing room and that has to start with a strong coach.

    Fonseca seems too passive for me and not the type of coach who can fire up his team for a derby game. I don’t like where this is going but I hope I am wrong. Smh

  3. Motta makes the most sense. We can get a ~10m discount on Zrikzee with Alexis going the other way and keep Coach and Striker together. Motta won’t require a feee to acquire and won’t demand a very high salary. Most cost effective strategy and will be seen as a huge move. Win-win for management.

  4. Motta is too much of a risk. One good season with Bologna and never having managed seasoned players and their personalities doesn’t sit comfortable with me.

  5. Nobody knows whats gonna happen, everyone is lying shamelessly, nobody knows nothing, not a single thing, sports journalism is a joke of a career, only a very few are professionals, the rest behave like kids or they are always high on some kind of psychotic drugs

  6. I would suggest De Zerbi of Brighton as coach for a team with hardly any money he’s done well in the PFL got them into Europa League finishing top of their group brings on young players plus plays attacking football

  7. I think De Zerbi of Brighton is a good choice he’s done pretty well in the SPL he’s only 44 played with the primervera got them to Europa League finishing top of their table and brings young players with little money he’s pretty good
