Rumours have been swirling in recent days suggesting that AC Milan are lining up a couple of signings, one for the attack and one for the defence.
Calciomercato.com begin a report by describing Milan as ‘ambitious and hungry’ with the club wanting to grow further, thus making the Scudetto win last season just a starting point.
Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara however will not betray the principles of the time under Elliott Management meaning signings and renewals will be completed only under the conditions agreed with the ownership.
This also applies to Rafael Leao, as the Rossoneri strongly want to agree a renewal but cannot reach the €8-9m net per season that is being asked for, which is why the idea of Noa Lang from Club Brugge has emerged as a replacement.
The report denies this idea though, stating that his agent was in Italy recently and specifically flew to Milano, but not to meet Milan and rather to see Atalanta about Teun Koopmeiners. The Rossoneri have had no more contacts over Lang.
Meanwhile, there has also been plenty of speculation about Jakub Kiwior of Spezia especially in the build-up to the game last Saturday night. However, there is only an interest at the moment on the part of Milan and nothing advanced with his entourage.
Maldini and Massara will continue closely follow the Polish international but have not yet begun to dialogue with the Ligurian club and it is not certain that they will.
