AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni has joked that fans should not get used to the idea of making one signing per week from now until the end of August.
Milan have so far welcomed Marco Sportiello, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Luka Romero with Christian Pulisic having undergone his medical today, all while there are links with Tijjani Reijnders plus several forwards.
Scaroni spoke to reporters at an event that Milan are hosting along with BMW Italia to celebrate the extension of their partnership.
“Our Giorgio Furlani makes one signing a week, you don’t think we’ll continue like this until August 31st? There are 10 weeks left, it is not possible (laughs).”
So for Reijnders we have to wait for next week? “I don’t mention names, I only say one a week up to now, a not bad pace.”
What do you expect from this season for Milan? “To have a stronger Milan. We have a peremptory obligation to be in the Champions League, because we’ve seen the impact it has on our game, our players and our accounts. That is an absolute obligation. Then everything else that comes will be welcome.”
On Pulisic: “ He is above all a strong player. Of course, American and all, but I like him because he is a very strong player.”
Were you surprised by the enthusiasm of the fans at the rally? “I really liked it and I drew a parallel between who was at Milanello the day before yesterday and our season ticket campaign which was a great success, the two things go a bit together.”
On the stadium in San Donato: “It is a project in which we are moving forward. It’s always a complicated story, so let’s move forward on San Donato as we move forward on other opportunities.”
🗣️ Scaroni: “Furlani is getting us used to making one signing a week, but it won’t continue like this until the end of August. It seems we are building a Milan equipped for the #UCL.”
