Sky: Centre-back and striker opportunity – how Milan are aiming to complete the squad

By Oliver Fisher -

CEO Giorgio Furlani is still hard at work fielding calls and evaluating various ways that the AC Milan squad can be strengthened further.

Peppe Di Stefano spoke live on Sky (via Radio Rossonera) this evening, and he confirmed that Furlani was on the fourth floor Casa Milan today, because the meetings and negotiations on the market are continuing.

The management are still looking for a central defender and the name Marco Pellegrino from Club Atletico Platense was specifically mentioned by the journalist as being a target.

As far as the attacking department is concerned, it is numerically complete at present. However, the possible loan of Lorenzo Colombo and the sale of Divock Origi could allow Milan to shore up the attack.

It is ‘not certain’ that another striker will arrive. Milan are trying to verify through calls and enquiries what kind of possibilities there are to try to sign another striker who is an alternative to Olivier Giroud.

In that case, Okafor would be the alternative on the left wing, although he can still play centrally too.

  1. Hey guys, what’s your opinion of us getting Mason Greenwood on loan and playing him as a CF? Would be better and cheaper than Broja, Kean etc.

    1. I hope you are talking about some other Greenwood and not the one from Man Utd.
      No club of Milan stature will wanna do anything with him.
      Also, he is a RW and Milan has no need of a RW anymore.
      Plus the dude not only hasn’t played in 2 years but he hasn’t even trained with a professional club in 2 years.

      1. I don’t think any club should want anything to do with Greenwood. Charges dropped or not, no one should take him simply because of that.

        1. Don’t be to hard on him sometimes it’s good to temper justice with mercy there is always a second chance for everyone so he deserve one at the moment so to me I won’t like him to come here not because of what he has done because he is a RW and we have that area covered aside that he is welcome atlist to train and have his fitness back

    1. From the pure game perspective this would be fantastic. I think they are waiting for the market close, Berlusconi tactics

  2. Mason Greenwood.

    The same guy who was arrested for assault on his girlfriend? There was a reason he was frozen out of the United squad. And while the charges were dropped, it doesn’t mean he’s innocent. This is not the kind of person we want here. Period.

    1. Yes, charge was trying to rape his girlfriend. Im not saying he is innocent, but be real here.

      anyone with reasonable iq can see what that woman did.

      1. Think those have a kid now and are engaged.
        2 toxic people enjoying their toxic relationships. Nothing new, nothing we should judge.

  3. He has been found guilty of nothing. He deserves to get his career back on track. My only objection would be he is more of an attacking wide player, and his lack of recent game time.

    1. Well.. we’d keep Colombo as 3rd choice ST… but as second choice to giroud… that too much for him as 2nd i think….. its too risky as 2nd and if we can reinforce hell leave. While i think origi is a parasite right now basically, footballing wise not sure colombo is better thsn him yet.

      Simic, i like him potentially, but no way to realy as backup staring CB as 4th behind thiaw, tomori and simon…

  4. Please fans stop all this winging
    We will be ready when this season starts .
    We have a great squad. A technical centre forward .yes I am talking about Olivier Giroud .This man will have an amazing season
    By all means get a back up,but not a replacement We have a great squad ,and a great manager in pioli
    We will challenge for the title this season
    Why ! because we have a better squad of players

    1. I personally am optimistic that we will have a good season and I appreciate the work of the management and Pioli .
      Having said that , to me , we lack a quality and quantity player for the base of midfield that makes the difference.
      So much improvement up front and good additions in midfield too( I’m crazy about Reijnders) but without that player to help the defence I feel we will be leaking goals in many games… Weiffer, Amrabat, Sangare one of these would be amazing!
