Pellegatti outlines Milan’s next steps on the mercato – from Dalot to Tonali

By Isak Möller -

It’s an intense period for Milan on the market, between Calhanoglu leaving and the management negotiating to keep several loanees. That being said, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have a clear plan.

The Rossoneri have parted ways with two starters from this past season, namely Gigio Donnarumma and Hakan Calhanoglu, both leaving for free. Therefore, while a new goalkeeper has been signed, a No.10 is also on the priority list.

Of course, that isn’t the only business Milan are looking to do this summer and in other words, the management is very busy. Speaking exclusively to MilanNews, journalist Carlo Pellegatti explained what the next steps are.

“Man Utd has played hardball on Dalot. Milan are now moving strongly for Brahim Diaz. Then there is the Tonali dilemma, we will see how the negotiation evolves. Firpo is also a player for which the negotiations are proceeding. For the playmaker, midfielder, third forward and right-winger, though, I think we have to wait until the end,” he stated.

It would be very positive for the Rossoneri to keep the successful loanees. Not just because of their quality, but also because they know the club well already. In the coming days, or weeks in some cases, there will be more updates on the matter.

  1. It doesn’t look good for Milan. I thought that if we came to the Champions League, then we would sign players who could strengthen the team. But the management has done the exact opposite. Losing Donnarumma was not big loss. But losing Hakan is a big loss. He was an important player on the team. He went for free and that’s bad management. It took them 7 years to form a team that could challenge great teams for the title. Now everything is thrown away and now we have to start all over again. There is no sign that they are looking for quality it is more the price that determines whether they sign the players or not.
    When I look at the Italian national team, there is not a single Milan player. I can’t remember when it was last like that.
    It doesn’t look good for Milan. This club that wants to mess around in the middle of the table and frustrate their fans with picking up mediocre players.
    The future is really uncertain. I’ve been a Milan fan since 1989. I miss Berlusconi.

    1. They should have kept Hakan Calhanoglu and gave him what he wanted. 4 or 5 isn’t that much difference. Thereafter they could sell him in January if they wanted. I don’t like losing two of our best players for free.
      They don’t have the money to buy quality and the players the media is writing about ain’t good enough to take this big club forward. I’m afraid of Milan is losing time to build on its fan base. They are losing them.

  2. Calhanoglu is massively overrated. His corners are good, some of his free kicks are great, but otherwise he disappears a lot. He will flop at Inter and that’s good for us. I also like how Maldini doesn’t give in to unreasonable demands. We have good replacements coming.
