AC Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara seem to agree on a potential centre-forward target to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a report claims.
The elephant in the room at the moment seems to be what the Rossoneri’s long-term strategy regarding the centre-forward position is, as Ibrahimovic is now 39 and is struggling with more frequent injuries while there is not currently a natural deputy.
Tuttosport (via MilanNews) reported this morning that Andrea Belotti of Torino is the man that the club have in their sights. The Granata captain, despite Torino’s bad season, is playing very well and seems ready to finally make the big leap to a top club.
His contract will expire on 30 June 2022 and Torino president Cairo will certainly ask for a high fee initially, but with only one year from the expiry of his contract, the economic claims cannot be too exaggerated.
The paper goes on to state (via MilanNews) that if Ibrahimovic were to decide not to renew his contract with the Rossoneri then Belotti could become the No.1 target.
Not only that, but he appears to be a player that has the approval of the management as both Maldini and Massara are great admirers.
