Sky: AC Milan begin blitz for Renato Sanches, Falcao and Costa

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s mercato so far this summer has been nothing short of sensational as the squad has undergone a major overhaul.

However, it is no secret that despite adding the likes of Andre Silva, Lucas Biglia, Frank Kessie and Hakan Calhanoglu, the Rossoneri are still on the market for the right pieces to finish the jigsaw.

According to a report from Sky, the Milan management (led by Fassone and Mirabelli) have begun a “blitz” in Sardinia.

This involves a meeting with super agent Jorge Mendes, who was responsible for helping to bring Andre Silva to the San Siro earlier this summer.

The report claims that Renato Sanches, Diego Costa and Radamel Falcao are the names on the table being discussed. 

While the first two names have been mentioned before, Falcao is altogether more interesting. The Monaco forward had struggled for form before re-establishing himself last season as they won Ligue 1.

Meanwhile, Renato Sanches told German paper Bild earlier on Tuesday that he would be open to joining Milan.

“I am not happy about my first year at Bayern Munich, that’s clear. I’m young, I have to play a lot. I think the chance to do so is greater in Milan than in Munich,” he revealed.

“I want to play more consistently and [a move to] AC Milan is a very interesting option. If the two clubs reach an agreement, I would be happy to join the Rossoneri.”

Diego Costa is tipped to rejoin Atletico Madrid, but their transfer ban until January would prevent him playing until January 2018, something which presents an interesting possibility for Milan.
