SportsZone: Moncada working on a Scudetto Milan – Simakan, Tielemans and Mbeumo on his list

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have given Geoffrey Moncada more power when it comes to transfer business and he has drafted up a list of targets, a report claims.

According to the French source SportsZone, Moncada has in fact been promoted to the the role of sporting director and has been partly tasked with the big responsibility of replacing Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara’s duties.

The first thing they mention is that he refused a return to France, with Lyon and Monaco very insistent in their attempts to lure him back to his home country in previous months. Now, his mission is underway to construct a squad that can win the Scudetto again.

The negotiations over Eintracht Frankfurt playmaker Daichi Kamada (on an expiring deal) and Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek have been put on stand-by for the time being.

The source adds that Youri Tielemans is a target for the midfield given he will leave Leicester City when his contract expires later this month, having already worked with the Belgian during his time at Monaco.

Meanwhile, Moncada is aiming to convince Borussia Mönchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram and Eintracht Frankfurt defender Evan N’Dicka to join, and they would also both be free transfer.

Moncada greatly appreciates RB Leipzig centre-back Mohamed Simakan, whom he already wanted to bring to Monaco, but his price is out of reach. Brentford winger Bryan Mbeumo is another player he likes a lot, but he has thus far been declared unsellable.

The Frenchman wants to adopt an aggressive recruitment strategy for young profiles in France and South America, believing that is where the best talent is.

  1. “Meanwhile, Moncada is aiming to convince Borussia Mönchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram and Eintracht Frankfurt defender Evan N’Dicka to join”

    Well, if a legend like Moncada is trying to convince them, I’m sure they’ll accept. Tine to get real. The only way left to convince them is money.

    1. Sure they’ll come running for 1.5 to 2.5 mil a season when they can be earning 4-6 🙂

      Besides i am a legend in scouting world they will not listen to anyone else but me 🙂

  2. It’s time to make a good use of this free agent frenzy phenomenon. With a limited budget, it’s only logical to do so.

  3. We just need to be calm and see the end.
    Milan’s success isn’t tied to any single individual.

    The rumoured signings of Tielemans, Thuram and Ndicka already makes more sense for a serious club in our situation.

  4. I’m sceptical of “France and South America” showing all the best talent but of course as a fan and human being I have my opinion on who is good. Pulisic for the right is my favorite option but I do like this list a lot better. Then throwing money away to others. As I said previously cutting a slightly larger check as incentive to join us as well insteady of blowing it on 1 high signing and 6 other low ones and one of those lows signings ended up being the best signing.

    I might be scrambling but I’m growing more and more confident as the day go on

    1. Botman was not a rumour. Botman was coming to Milan but Newcastle came in between and he opted for premier league.

  5. We need to sign free transfer like ndicka and sell one our CB that can bring transfer fee. You cannot just buy and buy but you need to sell too . Sell player that dont want renew contract & never let them play trick to go free transfer

  6. No real AC fan wanted RLC, Arnutovic and Berardi
    Manconda on the face of it has fresh new ideas. Just what we need after what Origi, Rebic and Mesiass have put us through this as season

    1. LOLOLOLOLO. Maybe cannot read properly. So this basically article said we want two players that are FREE – Thuram and N’Dicka – but one is off to PSG and the other Roma. And apparently Tielemans who has numerous suitors all over Europe would have to take a pay cut to join us – ya that’s sounds realistic lol. Second we like Sikaman and Mbeumo – but Sikaman is too expensive and the other is “unsellable” LOL. So basically NOTHING is happening. Ya!!!!!!

  7. I advice Mr Moncada to Keep lists and Activities in Secret.
    And when the deal is done its ok to leak
    Secret work is the best factor to success.

  8. I don’t like the fact that Kamada is being put on the back burner. He is more of an AM and we don’t have anything in that area. The strategy makes sense, just don’t let Kamada and Tielemans get away.

  9. Sign Exequiel Zeballos from Boca Juniors. He is young talented and versatile. Zeballos is currently out of field due to a injury but he will be back in two-three weeks. Take a eye on him Mr Moncada this guy is very special and within reach i think

  10. You cant run Milan like like you running some clubs in France or mid table clubs in the premiership…. They’re lots of young promising right wingers with great talents out there Bryan Mbeumo is out of it. And as for me i dont consider Thuram top striker a club like Milan should buy and take the ballot from Giroud.
    From Moffi, Balogun, Boniface, Retegui, Openda,Icardi, Lucas Beltran. And none of them are coming , milan should call back Colombo

  11. Said it before and I’ll say it again. Tielemans will be perfect for Pioli’s idea of CAM with a lot of defensive duties. Someone who can circulate possession quickly and intelligently to keep our fast paced football flowing, instead of dribbling the ball until the end of time like Brahim.

  12. Why do we need another defender? Kjear still here, so is Tomori, Thiaw, Kalulu, Gabbia, FLorenzi gets high wage, Hernandez Ballo-Toure. Why the hell we are keep being linked with defenders?

      1. Well… There’s still one thing that NEEDS to be fixed: backup for Theo. NDicka could play there too. But that means someone would need to buy FBT first. And who’s going to do that? No one. Maybe for a million but then comes the issue with his salary.

  13. If we only have a small budget id like kamada and tielemans for free, and if we cant get thuram, then scamacca on loan. The little money we have id spend on Berradi who is a proven goalscorer. Happy to sell origi and rebic for whatever we can get. Those three quality signings would make all the difference.

  14. Milan could not register 25 players in CL due to lack of home grown players.
    Moncanda is no doubt a good scout but he tends to bring french players to the team, just like at arsenal back then.
    Not against french players, but milan need quality home grown players as well in order to be able to refister 25 playersin CL next season

  15. instead mbuemo you guys can get …. elye wahi and wilson odobert 25m for wahi and 6-7m for odobert (its prolly less but wahi monpelier set it as asking price)

  16. So Simakan is too expensive and Mbueno is “unsellable”. Thuram is off to PSG and N’Dicka to Roma. Tielemans has numerous suitors in the EPL and through Europe but he will supposedly take a a BELOW Market deal to join us when Furlani calls him LOL. We have a lower budget than last year at 35M and can sign Kamada for FREE and he WANTS to join us and would cover an area of desperate need and he is willing to fit under our WAGE CAP – but we are Passing LOL. Ya, this all sounds great!😝😝😝
