The January window isn’t just for signings and Milan are also at work on a few departures. The likes of Leo Duarte, Mateo Musacchio and Rade Krunic could all leave, with the latter on Torino’s radar.
In fact, as reported by the reliable Torino reporter Matteo Pedrosi, Marco Giampaolo’s side have made Krunic their priority for the midfield. Contacts with Milan are already underway, showing they are serious in their pursuit.
Prime mosse #Toro: per l'attacco piacciono 🇨🇮 #Kouamé (c'è anche il Genoa) e 🇫🇷 #Defrel (richiesta Sassuolo alta). Centrocampo: contatti col Milan per 🇧🇦 #Krunic (al vaglio ipotesi scambio con Meité, comunque non semplice, da capire eventuali formule e cifre). @CorriereGranata

There have been reports about a possible swap deal involving Soualiho Meite, and Pedrosi confirmed that this is indeed a hypothesis, albeit a tough one. The parties would have to settle on the right formula and figures, which we know isn’t easy.
In any case, it seems Krunic could be packing his bags soon despite the appreciation of Stefano Pioli, who has often played the Bosnian. The truth is, however, that he hasn’t been able to live up to Milan’s standard thus far.
