MN: Milan switch from Vlahovic-type targets to free transfer opportunities – the strategy explained

By Oliver Fisher -

The strategy of the Milan management regarding reinforcements for the attack has become clear, according to a report.

According to MilanNews, it was presumed before that in the event of Champions League qualification a possible big signing in terms of economic expenditure could be made, but now there seems to have been a change to free transfer profiles to allocate resources to other areas.

This is why there is renewed interest in Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud, who was also offered to Milan in January and is a path to be followed with great attention. The clean-up of Milan’s accounts continues, and in October they will be the subject of discussion during talks over the Settlement Agreement with UEFA.

The agreement limits investments of a certain extent and thus the Dusan Vlahovic idea – a player who has been followed for a long time – lapses by logic given that Fiorentina do not intend to give discounts on their asking price. The 21-year-old was one of the profiles in which – with more prosperous accounts – the property would have preferred to invest in terms of age, potential and development.

Amine Adli of Toulouse is an additional option to the attacking department, as the attacking midfield department will need to be fleshed out, especially on the right where Samu Castillejo seems set to leave.

    So we sign an aging runway model & an amateur from the french ghetto. Fan-tastic.

    The “strategy” is that Elliot don’t want to spend any money while they wait for someone to buy the club. Simple as that.

    Seriously, our strategy forward is to be the only team in Europe who gives a flying f… about FFP? I give up. I will always love Milan no matter what, win or lose, but I will no longer have any kind of hope that we’ll be a top club again, at least as long as Elliot are the owners. And maybe it doesn’t matter at the end of the day. We have our history, today’s football is disgusting anyway.
    I suspect Elliot counted on Super League for revenue and resale value. Now that that is off the table I don’t expect any kind of major investments from them. And this piece of news confirms that.

    AS MUCH as I like and respect giroud for what he’s done and as an experienced player, this might as well read “Milan switch from Champions league type targets to Europa league opportunities” ‘^_^ … I’m sorry but as long as the young and hungry players dominate today’s game because they’re given the opportunities earlier than ever by coaches that can guide them … however important experience and it’s purpose is it will remain secondary in today’s game… and Milan won’t catch up if they don’t get with the program and keep prioritizing the right signings they can build a future on, have they not learned anything in the last 10 years? Or are they going to keep abandoning youthful and potential projects they can build a future with even when they’re staring them right in the face. Why does it still feel like Berlusconi and galliani run the club? Was their influence that strong? Maybe it was the debt that had a more lasting affect and ultimately impacts the team to this day, doesn’t seem like they’ve learned a thing.

    P.s. By “staring them in the face” I’m referring to the fact that players like Vlahovic have stated in the past and reiterated their admiration and support for Milan and in his case particularly Zlatan. That should be reason enough for Milan to fight for a player that is willing to fight for them, in my opinion it’s a better gamble than some high profile name that is otherwise never associated himself with the club, passion is priceless especially in today’s game where players choices and motivation is heavily influenced by money.
