Tuttosport: Milan need to to sell players before signing Union Berlin defender

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan will need to sell players and raise money before they can sign Diogo Leite from Union Berlin to add more depth to the defence.

As has been reported by Tuttosport (via Milan News), the Rossoneri need to focus on outgoings as well as signings if they are to address all of the positions that they want to this summer.

Right now, a new central defender is not one of the top priorities and whilst Milan do have the power to spend in other areas of the pitch before they make sales, that is not the case for Leite’s position.

The priority is to sign a new striker and a new midfielder, with a backup right-back also being higher up the pecking order than a centre-back. That is why talks for players like Alvaro Morata, Youssouf Fofana and Emerson Royal are more advanced.

The Rossoneri have not actually opened talks for Leite with Union Berlin yet but it has the makings of a deal that would not be very hard to complete, providing Milan have the money in the bank.

Selling a player like Ismael Bennacer could be what it takes for Milan to then act on their interest in the Portuguese defender.

      1. No but they did come out and say Milan don’t need to sell players to fund the Mercato…..so what are we at…q3m for Morata, 12m for Fofana and 12m for Emerson Royal? We are meant to be the most profitable club in Italy arent we?

        1. Ibra also said a day or two ago that they want to have a squad of around 23 players so trimming is required.

          We’re at – 5M for jimenez and + 22M (cdk) + 3.5M (the Krunić)

  1. Add few more millions and get Strahinja Pavlovic.
    Way more experienced in UCL and NT competitions even though 2 years younger. He’d be very good next to Tomori.

  2. Milan deve se focar em Pavlovic que é um jogador mais tenaz, duro e intransponivel. Para o ataque Gimenez e Matias Sulé

  3. guys we have money we dont need to sell anyone especially a cdm for a cb two different pos and also leite isnt worth 50m, not even 20m. so in anyway we arent gonna buy him because bayer involved plus we need to sell a cb also he is similar to gabbia so we dont actually need him

    1. We don’t need to sell anyone to generate fund but we do need to sell to reduce the size of the squad.

      Currently the Senior squad is around 27 players, Fonseca want to have a squad of around 23 Senior players so we need to sell/loan around 7 players if we also want to buy 3 more players. Because those players will not play and eating the salary.

  4. Common sense. You bring players in your take players out and keep the squad at 22-24 players. Nothing shocking or new to report.

  5. And they want to waste 12m on morata! Put on a scout for a great striker there are a lot of strikers who have bigger potential! Also skipp lukaku you can better watch Brobbey! Same type of player but young. Or victor roque who wants to leave barca. Let them compete with okafour
