Report: Right wing dilemma remains as Milan could spend €90m on four starters

By Isak Möller -

Ahead of the upcoming season, AC Milan want to bring in some reinforcements as they have a Scudetto to defend. They have a budget of €100m to work with and that makes things a bit difficult. 

In addition to reinforcing the squad they had this past season, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara also must replace Franck Kessie and possibly Alessio Romagnoli. A budget of €100m has been made available and although that isn’t a lot, Milan are masters of this.

As highlighted by Tancredi Palmeri in his latest editorial for TMW, Milan will bring in Divock Origi on a free transfer and Renato Sanches for €20m this summer. Then, Sven Botman could perhaps be signed for €30m and Charles De Ketelaere for €40m.

That would be €90m for four starters, which isn’t cheap but not that much either considering the quality of the players. However, the right wing dilemma remains in that equation, as the Rossoneri aren’t willing to spend the €30-40m needed for the likes of Nicolo Zaniolo, Domenico Berardi or Marcos Asensio.

    1. Maybe they hope & pray Theo doesn’t get injured and put Calabria, Kalulu or Florenzi there when he’s suspended (yes, that happens quite often).

  1. We can pass without spending crazy money in defender buy cheap young with high potential and let Kululu and Tomori be the starting center back pair does not make any sense spending 30m on the likes of Botman wen Kalulu was a wall in defence with Tomori!

  2. What is our craze on getting botman? If we need a defender fine but what’s so special about him? I don’t even think we need a defender and should definitely purchase a rw and a striker

  3. To me Origi is not a pure nº9 and not starter!
    Sanches if Bennacer and Tonali are in form is hard to see him start over any of them!
    So if i was Maldini and Comp i would get CDK for atacking midfielder 35m,Noa Lang for the right winger 20m,R.Sanches to midfield 15m,Scamacca for striker 35m total spent 105m the extra 5m can be coverd from sales we make!

    1. Why would Milan pay Scamacca that much when they can get Belotti for free? Honestly, Scamacca isn’t any better than him and in a situation when you don’t have money it doesn’t look like a reasonable transfer.

  4. Renew Romagnoli and use that 30m for Noa Lang at the end of the day we have Origi, Kateleire, Noa Lang and Sanches for that 90m. Next yeat scudetto is ours

  5. The 100 M Budget for the trnsfer market in the upcoming 2022/23 Season.
    I have an Idea of Buying N Lang and Charles Dekeleare for 50Milyan Both of them.
    And the 50 Million 30 for S Botman and 18 Milion for either Enzo Fernendez of R Plate and 10 Milion for J Onana of Bourdourx.
    The Rest of the 12Milion is Buy Esteve M of Montiplier of M Mitti of Empoli.
    And Sing Belotti for Free.
    If extra is possible I shall bring N Zeniola For N.10 Position by Him Ch Dekeleare

  6. Ousmane Dembele(free) RW
    Belloti (free) ST
    cDK(35M) AMF
    Sanchez(20m) CM
    Botman(30m) CB
    Paris (15m) LB

    100M well spent

    1. Ousmane Dembele? really?
      his salary is 35m/y, 3y contract will be 100m,
      with that money we can buy+salary of CDK, Botman & Sanchez

  7. Maldini’s target is getting Milan back in the top clubs in Europe.
    You cannot compete in the CL only with Tomori & Kalulu….There will be injuries.
    If one is out,who will step up? Kjaer is 34 and just recovered from a very different injury.We have no idea how he would be.
    Romagnioli???? Guys he is two levels lower than Tomori & Kalulu…
    And how are we so sure that Kalulu isn’t just a shooting star?

  8. It will be very stupid of milan not to get natural RW it’s going to be a disaster for us this comimg season miracle won’t for us in UCL if the team isn’t balance just forget Botman and renew Romagnoli no money to make big signings just get
    CDK 35m
    Sanches 20m
    Asensio 35m= 85m or get Politano for 15m extra 20m seriously don’t need Botman even Lang isn’t needed is Fav position is LW not Rw unless maybe Rebic is going we can get him or get Lang and buy CDK and loan him back get him next season

  9. Origi (free), Sanches (15), Botman (30), Ketelaere (30), Zaniolo (40).. From where 15 millions? That’s why Milan need to buy Messias around 3 millions and sell Saelemaeker for 18 millions. Noa Lang also can join Milan if Milan decide to sell Rebic 18-20 millions or Raspadori with money from Rebic plus counterparts. Milan also can get small money from two loanee CB for around 8 millions.

  10. 100m euro maybe not enough but you can sell unused player like caldara,castilejo,some academy player. You can get money from hauge & Duarte sale too . Hauge 12m euro & Duarte 5m euro . I expected 120m euro total ( 100m euro + sale player money) . You can get botman/bremer 30m euro, CDK 30m euro,Antony 45m euro,Cambiasso 15m euro. Don’t need Renato since we have tonali,bennacer,krunic,adili or we can loan player fron rich club . Striker no need to waste fund since rebic can fill 3rd striker choice

  11. We need to sell a host of deadwood players as well to raise much needed funds to supplement the transfer budget : Krunic, Ballo-Toure, Caldara, Castillejo, Saelemaekers. Incoming players would / should be Lang, CDK, Sanches, Bremer / Botman & depth at LB

  12. For 100 Mil, I would rather go all in for CDK and Antony. It may take somewhere between 80~100mil.

    We will be covered on backups for LW(Rebic, Krunic), ST(Giroud, Ibra, Rebic), CAM(Diaz, Adli, Maldini) and RW(Messias/Saele).

    The midfield we have, specially considering the addition of Pobega, we are more that self sufficient.

    We have 5 CBs, Tomori, Kalulu, Kjaer, Gabbia, Caldara. If we still need more, we can go for a new one on Winter market.

    Then we need Theo’s Deputy.

    After all that, if we still have money left, lets reinforce defense with another CB. But instead of a heavy profile like Botman/Bremer, I would rather go for someone more with potential and with a drive to prove himself. If we have more money left after THAT by selling players or freeing wage bills, we can go for Lang.

    Forza Milan.

  13. A lot of Football Manager players here. 🙂 . put your dreams and don’t worry, MMM will play his role very well.

  14. That’s probably 100 millions + whatever they can scrap from selling players (Saelemakers, Rebic, Hauge, Caldara, Duarte) and ones that are out of contract (Castillejo, Romagnoli). Messias and Florenzi are probably signed. Origi as wrll. Personally we need Kessie replacement first, then proper RW and at last covers for LB and DM. We have incoming Pobega and Adli as well who can act as covers for our new CAM and Tonali. We also have Gabbia for CB, in my opinion one of most underrated defenders out there.

  15. I think we might have missed getting dybala he would have fitted in our system perfectly… if I look at inter lukaku dybala in sanchez and dzeko leaving now they have lautaro as well man that’s scary……the issue with us is salary cap we can get favourable deal with any club like Real Madrid for asensio but salary is sticking point..we need lb dm am rw and striker I think we shoudnt waste money on cb.. if we can not cover rw
