MN: From Renato Sanches background to SMS enquiry – Milan looking for a top midfielder

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan need a quality signing for the midfield given that Franck Kessie will leave when his contract expires, and the two names of Renato Sanches and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic have emerged.

MilanNews report that Renato Sanches has long been one of the profiles sought by the Milan management who wanted to sign him in January, but they were unable to get a deal over the line which postponed the discussions to the summer mercato.

The Portugal international has been seen for some time as the ideal player for the 4-2-3-1 system that head coach Stefano Pioli has established because he has the quality and the physicality to be able to replace Kessie.

Regarding the Lazio midfielder on the other hand, there have been ​​some exploratory enquiries during which it was discovered that Claudio Lotito’s asking price is at least €60m. That means Milinkovic-Savic would be a possible profile in the event of a Scudetto win and the establishment that Investcorp are willing to invest big.

  1. SMS is the best and Perfect Replacement of Kessie.Never Hesitate SMS will Be Both of Carllo Anccelotti(Carletto) and D.Albertini.
    He islo Role Model of our Primavera Players.
    Leaf out Sanchez even he is Red card taker in nonsense actions and He is prod Person with Selfish Ambitions.He Does not Know Serie A. I Don’t Know why Acmilan Direcrora seek him.He Even Costy and leftrighted His Position is filled by Beneccer.

  2. Maybe we should go for De Paul? Rumors say he is unhappy in Madrid (with Simeone’s defense style football) and willing to return to Italy. He might be a great AMF.

  3. SMS is Chalhanoglu part 2. He can be good but when he’s not on his game can be absolutely horrendous. I’d go for a different profile. There are better CAM out there

    1. Have you ever watched him play? I doubt it. 1st he doesn’t play AMC, that is Luis Alberto at Lazio, he plays as a box to box midfielder. When you compare him to Kessie he is better in all defensive stats, and you can’t compare his ability with the ball to Kessie. Complete midfielder that can defend, tackle, press, score and assist. Perfect replacement for Kessie due to his energy and as I already said, proven as a better player in both directions. But I think we can’t buy him, too much money and too much other big clubs interested.

    2. SMS not play as AMF , he is CMF with free role in Lazio . Balance in defense and atacking, he is good but Lazio Will asking high transfer fee like Lotito did in the past
