Tuttosport: Management consider the squad incomplete as Milan eye five more signings

By Oliver Fisher -

No other club in Italy have been as active as AC Milan on the transfer market but the Rossoneri’s summer transfer campaign is far from over.

That is according to this morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews), which points out that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara want to close a few more signings yet despite having plugged a lot of gaps in the squad.

For example, a right-back who can alternate with Davide Calabria is missing, a central midfielder to be added to the trio of Kessie-Bennacer-Tonali is needed, a right winger is sought and a young striker to compliment Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Olivier Giroud – both of whom are deep into their 30s.

Above all though a quality attacking midfielder is wanted to be entrusted with the starting shirt as Hakan Calhanoglu’s replacement. There are many names linked to Milan, also because there are several agents who are offering their clients, but now it is more a time for reflections because resources cannot be wasted and choices cannot be wrong.

Maldini, Massara and Gazidis know how difficult it will be to keep the second-placed finish they achieved last year, and that is why they know their every move on the market but be considered.

  1. Time to start selling before buying more, surely? There’s now cover in nearly every position. Let me play Devil’s Advocate…

    Why looking for another right-back with Calabria, Kalulu and Conti on the books? If Kalulu’s considered a centre-back then that makes 6 senior CBs on the books.

    What striker is really going to want to come in as a third-choice?

    Looking for a right-winger but already have two, not to mention having three left-wing options that could be played on the right.

    The club have Pobega and Krunic in addition to the other central midfielders. If none of those are moved on, I’m not sure why getting a 6th CM is so critical.

    Not to mention that none of the Primavera players currently have much route to the first team.

    Yes, adding quality would be great, but otherwise there’s enough depth for a good coach to work with. Otherwise, it’s pretty clear HOW Milan are in such a dire financial position. It’s all very well saying “well some will be sold” but there has to be a buyer first.
