Milan have been working very hard on the transfer market and they are far from done, with a few more signings in the pipeline. Two positions that need filling, for example, is the attacking mid and right-wing.
One player that can play in both of these positions is Josip Ilicic, who has been heavily linked with the Rossoneri this summer. The 33-year-old is very experienced and knows Serie A well, so he would be able to slot right into the team.
According to Milan Club Slovenia, citing the player’s entourage, Ilicic will join Milan this summer from Atalanta. He will sign a contract that is worth €4m per year. The contract length wasn’t mentioned in the report. (Correction, €4m transfer fee, €2.5m contract).
CORRECTION: 4 million € is the transfer price. Contract 2,5 mil. €.
Atalanta wanted 6 mil. €.

It remains to be seen if this is true and if further confirmation will arrive from other sources as well. In any case, it’s very interesting but you can also understand why the management want to make the signing.
