MN: Milan patient in pursuit of new playmaker – Chelsea and Dortmund duo on four-man list

By Oliver Fisher -

The attacking midfielder position is one that continues to dominate the media headlines surrounding Milan, with Hakan Calhanoglu’s replacement having not yet arrived.

According to the latest from MilanNews, the choice of management will be made calmly as they evaluate every opportunity, but at the moment there is still no player in pole position because Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara want to know they economic conditions of each player on the target list.

In late August it is likely that the pressure will begin to increase with the teams that have players they need to try and offload, such as Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech who is one of the first choices because he can play both as an attacking midfielder and as a right winger. Chelsea demanded concrete offers in June, but in August they could possibly open to loans.

Rumours about Julian Brandt are confirmed, but it is a difficult operation because Borussia would like to keep the player, while other options like Nikola Vlasic of CSKA Moscow and Marcel Sabitzer of RB Leipzig must also be taken into consideration. Josip Ilicic is an opportunity for the right wing, and if he signed a new playmaker would still arrive.

  1. I would actually like signing ziyech,illicic, and bernadeschi all for filling the gaps in the squad with castillejo and krunic leaving respectively and romagnoli being swapped to juve, at right back we should settle with kalulu as he has speed and defensively sound technique, conti leaving to other club would be great for both the player and for the team. Pobega should stay and leao if offer arrives b/w 20-30m would be great deal to be sold.

  2. Ziyech is too expensive (from all points of view). All the other names are nothing but rumors. The reasonable scenario: renew kessie and sign Ilicic (if Sami is sold). And that is all. Either at the beginning or in the end of the window does not matter. The problem is Milan lacks cash and is not able to decently sell players to cash in

  3. Do you know Ianis Hagi, the son of Rumanian Legend, who play in Rangers? He is a good AM/RW…Milan should try to get him. Trust me…!!!
