MN: Six players at risk in Milan midfield revolution – swap deal with Benfica possible

By Oliver Fisher -

Milan are heading for yet another midfield revolution this summer, a report claims, with a number of players at risk.

As MilanNews notes, Milan’s midfield department is set to undergo a real restyling during the upcoming transfer window, and the only ‘untouchable’ player is Ismael Bennacer. Hakan Calhanoglu and Rade Krunic are not 100% certain to stay, but there are no plans to sell.

Lucas Biglia and Giacomo Bonaventura are already sure to leave the club when their deals expires at the conclusion of the current campaign, while Franck Kessié – despite being a starter – is a player for whom bids of €25m or more would be listened to.

Lucas Paquetà also looks set to face a very uncertain summer after a difficult last few months. Milan are asking for €30million for the former Flamengo man, but it will be hard to find a buyer willing to spend that amount. Watch out for the Benfica hypothesis and the exchange with Florentino Luis, a profile that the Rossoneri hierarchy are very keen on.
