MN: Milan looking to complete the midfield – Kessie renewal latest and Bologna star targeted

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking to resolve the future of Franck Kessie and complete the midfield with a new signing, according to a report.

According to MilanNews, the Milan management are beginning to try and put the pieces in place ahead of the 2021-22 season, a campaign which will see the Rossoneri back in the Champions League for the first time since 2013-14.

The most important priority for the midfield department is certainly the renewal of Franck Kessie and while today there is a distance between the offer from Milan and the demands of the player and his entourage, it is unthinkable that Milan will let him leave after such a season.

A new signing will also be made in midfield to complete the department as per the report, and Mattias Svanberg of Bologna is named as a player that Maldini and Massara very much appreciate. The 22-year-old Swede played 34 times in Serie A this season, scoring five goals.

  1. Men3m Loz says:

    The president should be given the captaincy.

  2. Basten says:

    I don’t know what Maldini sees in Mattias Svanberg. I still believe Tomasso Pobega should be call-back, he’s strong, good on ball, and on defense and also play similar to Van Bommel.
    I don’t think Milan needs any more Midfielder in for Bennacer and Kessie cover-up. Both Tonali and Pobega have that position covered.

    They can use the funds to buy player for another position.

    1. ChazyMilan says:

      Yeah even I don’t get it….They never value their own players. Tonali & Pobega should be given the nod. I don’t want Pobega to go to Sassuolo & after 2 seasons going to Juventus & winning the Scudetto.

  3. Chidi Nnodim says:

    The case of Pobega will just be similar to what happened with manuel locatelli. Now he is a solid defensive midfielder for sassuolo and we sold him for almost nothing. Allow Pobega and Tonali to rotate with Bennacer and Kessi. Invest money on wingers and strikers
