CM: The three January signings Milan need to give Inter a challenge for the title

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have shown in the past few weeks that they do not have a squad that is capable of winning the Scudetto, or at least there are serious shortcomings. have published a reflection on the goalless draw between Milan and Juventus last night, remarking how a fear of losing the game ended up conditioning what was a boring game. As a club Milan are thinking step by step, with a vision devoted to the future, but there is a risk of losing sight of the present as well.

The next signing will be 18-year-old striker Marko Lazetic who will arrive from Red Star in the next two or three days. He is a very interesting purchase for the future, but he is not expected to have a huge impact this season or maybe in the next couple of seasons given his lack of experience.

To try to threaten Inter’s march towards the title, three signings would be needed in the last week of the transfer market as per the report. Firstly, a reliable defender would have to arrive – not just as cover but one who can also serve into next season and beyond.

Then, a strong attacking midfielder would certainly help given the poor performances of Brahim Diaz, and then a right winger with a different technical level and skill set to Junior Messias and Alexis Saelemakers.

It is likely at this stage that only a centre-back will arrive such as Japhet Tanganga of Spurs, unless Maldini and Massara decide to make a surprise signing with the characteristics of Romain Faivre.

  1. Who are they kidding? This management is not going to sign anyone. They won’t spend. They have let the team down. A couple moves and they could have challenged for the Scudetto, but they won’t support the team. Still waiting on a replacement for Calhanoglu… . If I’m Theo and Leao I’m really questioning if I want to stay at this team where the ownership won’t do what it takes to win.

  2. Elliott!!!if you’re not in this business to win trophies for the club,it’s best you get out.milan have been trophy less far too long to continue like this.

  3. “The squad is complete” is their motto. Even if a blind man can see that the RW and #10 are seriously lacking and that decides the scudetto. Without fixing those issues the TOP4 finish is now in jeopardy.

  4. If they don’t make some serious reinforcements in this window, the scudetto is a lost cause. A deep bench of quality players are needed to challenge for the title. We need at least a #10 and a quality winger or one player with these characteristics. This looks like another disappointing mercato.

    Forza Milan

  5. I made this same points after the Roma game early this month, and some fans called me a clueless keyboard warrior for blaming Elliot and Maldini for the lack of depth and their laxity to contractual issues and team management. Some blamed FFP for our inability to reinforce the squad; very laughable considering we have paid our dues concerning the FFP regulations two seasons ago.

    The management have capped their expenses for some reason, and can only afford players who cost 5million and nothing more. We cant even sign Faivre. Isn’t this a joke? Elliot expects magic to happen with the little given. It is understandable they inherited some level of debt, but they have to understand that in today’s business of sport, you get what you give. You cannot win any league if you do not have the quality to best your opponents. This isn’t just a mental game, it’s a game of physicality, athletics, and skill.

    If Elliot isn’t ready to invest, then they should start evaluating offers from consortiums ready to invest in sports. It’s that simple.
