MN: Milan leaders at headquarters; sales needed before final purchases

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan director Zvonomir Boban is currently present at Casa Milan working on the mercato, according to a report.

The Rossoneri management have a week left to try and complete the squad, and after Sunday’s season opener against Udinese they will no doubt be hard at work.

Milan put in a very disappointing performance at the Stadio Friuli to kick-off their 2019-20 season, losing 1-0 and failing to register a single shot on target.

It is highly possible that the result in Udine is evidence enough that more attacking reinforcements were needed, such was the lethargic nature of the front three.

Monday’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport – as cited by MilanNews.it – claims that Boban will travel to Madrid to try and work out whether a deal for Angel Correa will be possible

The same report goes on to add that he will also explore whether a deal for James Rodriguez will be possible, and as such he is set to meet with Real Madrid too.

However, MilanNews.it report that Boban – along with the rest of the Milan leadership – are present at Casa Milan working on the mercato. 

The report adds that the goal of the Rossoneri is to try and sell players first before closing the ‘final reinforcements’ (note the plural) for the attack.

Andre Silva is one of the players that Milan are actively trying to offloads, as TMW (via MilanNews.it) reported earlier on Monday.

Sporting CP and Espanyol are apparently interested in him, with agent Jorge Mendes trying to find a new club for his client.
