MN: Serious doubts raised about five forwards ahead of the summer amid attacking struggles

By Oliver Fisher -

There are now strong doubts about a number of players in AC Milan’s attacking department in view of the summer window, according to a report.

Pietro Mazzara writes in his column for MilanNews that Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s latest injury setback – a knee overload that forced him to miss the game against Torino last night – shows that his career is at the end credits.

The Sweden can no longer handle certain rhythms, he trains with his team-mates only every so often, and while he manages himself well from a physical point of view he simply cannot be relied upon, which suggests the end is near.

However, it is not only Ibrahimovic who could say goodbye in the summer because Ante Rebic is unreliable from a physical point of view having missed 15 games and he has not convinced with his performances, while Junior Messias is not Milan quality, Brahim Diaz has disappeared and Alexis Saelemaekers ‘shows no signs of evolution’.

  1. From those 3 i would only bring Belotti!
    Lingard in MU is a trash can playing in West Ham he played well for the 6 months he was there now that he his back at MU is been the trash can from so that show he is a player that cant endure the pression of playing for a big team.Origi is not pure number 9 that can guarante 10+ goals for season.

  2. The yesterday’s match was screeeeeeeeeeeeeaming for Berardi! The whole right lane is plain pathetic. NOTHING gets created there.

    Altough… The left side was as appalling as the right one. Leao? SELL! SELL! SELL!!! Sell him NOW! Cannot be trusted to perform when it matters.

  3. It doesn’t really matter who is the main striker as long as the service is non-existing like yesterday. First fix the LW/playmaker/RW issues and MAYBE then think about the strikers.

    Giroud is good enough if he gets the ball in the box. Yesterday he didn’t. Even Mbappe, Lewandowski or Håland wouldn’t have scored against Torino yesteday as there were zero scoring chances created to the striker.

    1. Sell Leao???? LOL. I could not disagree more. Berardi for 30M and Scamacca for 40M? No way. Better players out there for that price. Scamacca is still unproven and Berardi has not shown himself against bigger European teams or on national stage. Belotti?? He like Berardi has never shown himself well against bigger competition. I’d rather have Origi. Knows the system, is younger and with his speed and physicality I believe he would thrive in Italy. We should take a harder look at Bremer over Botman IMO and look at De Kelatare and Lang for ACM and RW. Kamara for DM.

      1. Leao might play good match (or 15mins of it) and then go missing for the next 5 matches.

        Berardi scores and assists 15 each per season. We need that. Whether he scores or not in CL is irrelevant since we need goals in Serie A to get to the CL!

        Origi? Shown himself well in bigger competition? LOL. Benchwarmer everywhere. Goals/matches ratio is poor.

        1. Dude AC Milan have limited budget,and cannot fix all position in all one transfer market. They need to wait 2023 summer market for striker. 2022 summer market they can only fixed CB ( botman), RW ( rumour Asensio/Berardi),AMF ( rumour Charles de ketelare/Adrian),DMF ( rumour Renato) . They Will wait Ibra and giroud out then they Will buy expensive striker, for now they only aim free transfer striker for reserved

          1. Duude. Selling Leao will get them MORE money for better (or at least consistent) players. It’s not like they’d sell him for 50-60M€ and then buy a more expensive player to replace him.

  4. Dud you’re crazy…Leao is sensational, he’s the only decent player north of Tonali’s and Bennacer’s double pivot…he’s only not performing well due to fatigue, his substitute is rebic who is constantly injured…every other position has a substitute except him, you can’t expect him to every single match from start to finish and continue providing the same numbers over and over, he isn’t a machine dude…you sell Leao, it will be like a Kulusevski situation over at Juventus.
