Sky journalist suggests Milan could ditch Correa pursuit for winger

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s plans for the remaining days of the transfer window could be set to change drastically, according to one journalist.

Head coach Marco Giampaolo arrived at Milan determined to implement his favoured 4-3-1-2 formation, and there were good signs in the preseason friendlies against Benfica, Manchester United and Feronikeli.

The Rossoneri failed to register a single shot on target against Udinese in their opening game of the season, losing 1-0 at the Stadio Friuli.

Giampaolo told Sky Italia after the game (via Football Italia) that he is considering scrapping the 4-3-1-2 in favour of a 4-3-3.

Sky Italia – as cited by MilanNews.it – then stated on Monday that Milan will return to using the 4-3-3 as Giampaolo alluded to, which was ironically previous head coach Gennaro Gattuso’s favoured system. 

Now, Sky journalist Peppe Di Stefano has lifted the lid on what that could mean for the club’s mercato before the window closes on September 2.

“The dynamics could change,” he said, as per MilanNews.it.

“The defence and midfield could remain the same, I think. Angel Correa was considered as a second striker, a trequartista if necessary, but not a pure winger.

“Will he still be a target for Milan, who will in all probability return to playing a front three against Brescia, or will they go on to other names, looking for a pure winger?”
