MN: Milan’s recruitment plan outlined – no to overspending and yes to possible capital gains

By Oliver Fisher -

The current Milan management are paying a lot of attention to the club’s accounts and big sales in the future cannot be ruled out, a report claims.

MilanNews writes how it evident that the management and the ownership Elliott Management have, during the last transfer windows, paid great attention to the figures invested in players. There have been a few big splashes like Fikayo Tomori (about to join permanently for €28m) and Rafael Leao (who cost over €25m) plus Sandro Tonali (potential €35m investment), but other than that the money has not been wasted.

Maldini and Massara are conscious of completing acquisitions at prices that one day could lead Milan to generate some large capital gains if needed on their more coveted players. It has been borne from the summer windows in 2017 and 2018, from which the legacy is players like Diego Laxalt, Andrea Conti and Mattia Caldara who will be very difficult to sell for any money.

  1. Big splashing?…. 25,28 & 35m isn’t a lot of money in these days. I don’t believe Milan will be great again if they don’t spend more money. They just need 2 or three star players to get a chance to win something. Expensive players will give more to the team and more revenue to the club as well.

  2. This looks like arsenal style which made them only to win minor cups they should upgrade it even if they want to follow their trend Milan is Milan and big glories are part of our history.

  3. Ahmed and Samson, I think you need to look at the reality – this isn’t the Premier League and the money that’s available is going to be limited; realise that Milan are competing with mid-table English clubs for players. There’s no point overspending and adding yet more debt again.

    Tomori has a high price but, because he’s English, it’s a smaller risk as there’s a market who will pay well for him, especially if he gets into the national team (see Dortmund with Sancho and now Bellingham). Tonali has a far smaller profit potential, so they should only pay the remaining €25m if they are convinced he’s the future of the midfield.

    This isn’t Milan of the ’90s, a loss leader supporting Berlusconi’s political ambitions – this is one being run as a business. And that means starting to make more money on player sales, where ACM are lagging well behind other ‘big’ clubs.
