AC Milan have cooled their pursuit of a right-back for the time being, a report claims, but for the rest agent Fali Ramadani could be key.
According to MilanNews, Milan are no longer pressing for Spurs defender Serge Aurier, showing that for the time being the management are focusing on other priorities.
To buy a new full-back, the Rossoneri would first have to sell Calabria, generate capital gains and then invest in the market. At the moment selling Conti is not part of the plans nor very feasible. It is not to be excluded that things could change in the coming weeks, but for now things have cooled.
Meanwhile, the situation regarding Lucas Paqueta is one to be defined. He had a positive display in Wednesday’s friendly showing that he could still offer some value, but he must continue those performances to convince.
Depending on what happens with Paqueta, Milan could then move for another attacker, with Federico Chiesa mentioned in the report.
The relationship with agent Fali Ramadani could be key. He represents Ante Rebic and for this reason Paolo Maldini and co. have already met him on several occasions during the summer.
The agreement for the future contract of the Croatia international has already been found, but it is difficult to think that other operations involving Ramadani’s clients have not been considered.
The names of Nikola Milenkovic and Luka Jovic have not been mentioned as much recently, but it cannot be ruled out that Milan could return at the end of the transfer market when Fiorentina could lower their claims for the Serbian and Real Madrid may allow Jovic to leave on loan.
Having someone like Jovic might seem like a luxury, but the movements in the midfield department suggest two players for each position is a priority. Jovic could play both with Ibra and in place of the Swede.
