Adriano Galliani confirmed it: since the closing did not occur yet, Milan will first need to sell before they can then buy any new players in this coming transfer window.
One player who seems ready to leave is Luiz Adriano. The Brazilian striker is a back-up to Carlos Bacca and Gianluca Lapadula, and his salary is apparently considered too high for a player who is not contributing much.
Luiz Adriano was a name that Genoa have been following and with Pavoletti now set to sign with Napoli, Preziosi’s club will want to add more attacking talents to their roster.
Another club who have had interest in him for some time now is Spartak Moscow. According to reports from Russia, Spartak are ready to offer Milan €7million for their striker. Talks will continue in the coming weeks.
Milan are currently in fifth position in the Italian Serie A table, but are only two points off second placed Roma. Milan are set to take on Juventus in Doha for the Italian Supercup final.
