The Milan management will continue to work on signing their primary objectives but they have a list of back-up targets for each role, a report claims.
Tuttosport (via MilanNews) write that the number one target for the midfield is Renato Sanches, with whom the Rossoneri had already reached an agreement. The €15m that Milan offered may not be enough, especially if a club like PSG presents itself with a higher offer.
The alternative target could be 21-year-old River Plate star Enzo Fernandez who has a release clause of €18m and therefore would not be much higher an investment from an economic point of view, while Bryan Cristante of Roma is an option.
In defence, the target has been Sven Botman for months who is waiting for Milan and wants to play for the Rossoneri, but Newcastle United may end up winning the race because of their new-found financial power.
The alternatives to Botman are Gleison Bremer of Torino who would also require a substantial investment, plus the French U20 international from Montpellier, Maxime Esteve, or an experienced player like Francesco Acerbi who will leave Lazio on a free.
Finally, Charles De Ketelaere is wanted for the attacking midfielder role but he is valued by Club Brugge at €40m and they want to keep him for one more season.
Noa Lang could be the man that the Rossoneri management turn to if De Ketelaere becomes a lost cause, while Hamed Junior Traorè and Filip Djuricic of Sassuolo are also on the radar, with the latter on an expiring contract.
