Repubblica: Milan consider €50m PSG star to replace Ibrahimovic as Messi rumours persist

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are thinking about a move for Paris Saint-Germain striker Mauro Icardi as a possible heir to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a report claims.

Milan have two strikers both under contract until June in Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mario Mandzukic and at the time of writing it is unknown whether either will remain for next season.

La Repubblica (via Calciomercato.com) reported earlier in the week how Milan could in fact go for a guaranteed Serie A goal scorer in Icardi. The paper wrote that the Argentine represents a summer target for Juventus, Milan and Roma, with the Giallorossi in particular keen on the idea.

Now, the same paper (via MilanLive) has published an update today confirming that Milan are thinking of a ‘sensational solution’ to replace Ibrahimovic if he were to leave in Mauro Icardi.

Rumours about the possible arrival of Lionel Messi at PSG are making the former Inter striker think about a departure, and he could leave for around €50m this summer according to the source. He has 26 goals in 51 games for PSG in his two seasons so far, and his Serie A experience makes him an attractive option.

    What a joke, Milan doesn’t have 50m to spend and if they have that kind of money they will use it on important targets like tomori not this lazy clown.

      Icardi and Tomori play different positions.
      Icardi to score, Tomori to defend.
      I don’t see how they intertwine, obviously if we can manage to get the funds, just buy them all. CL competition ain’t no joke.
      Since we can’t get Haaland, and Depay wants Barcelona, I will rather Icardi over Belotti

        – Icardi is a pr***
        – Belotti is an AC Milan fan

        This is a no-brainer.

    Milan should be ready to invest in our attack ie CF to be precise. We ain’t going anywhere without prolific goal scorers. For how long can IZ be with the team. Belloti and Icardi must be considered at this stage if we really want to compete at the highest level. Look at the attack of Inter. There’s a certain Lukaku, Lautaro, Sanchez…

    Well my idea front 3 will be:

    LW = Son Heung-min, for £70m
    CF = Haaland, for £150m (Mbappe wouldn’t come)
    RW = Jordan Sancho, for £130m
    TOTAL = £350m

    If 100 Ac Milan fans worldwide can do a fund raiser (GoFundMe), each member will only have to contribute £3.5 to actualize this dream. Then with the management investing in the Defense and Midfield, we would have built a team that can beat anyone in the world.

    Rossoneri worldwide, if we can think it, we can do it.

    JOHN THE BAPTIST say so.

      Sorry, 100 million Ac Milan fans worldwide…
