Tuttosport: Milan want two players in every position – signings in two areas prioritised

By Oliver Fisher -

Despite the fact AC Milan’s 2020-21 campaign kicks off on Thursday, a lot of attention continues to be centred around the market.

The Rossoneri have welcomed the signings of Brahim Diaz, Sandro Tonali and Ciprian Tatarusanu as well as having secured the renewal of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and a permanent deal for Ante Rebic.

According to Wednesday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews), the management might not be done there. That is because Milan’s market strategy, which has so far appeared clear and precise, is to aim for two players in every role on the pitch.

The paper claims that this is in large part due to the fact that the club are likely to compete in three competitions this season – Serie A, the Europa League and the Coppa Italia – which means there will be over 50 games.

Stefano Pioli and the management knows that back-ups are needed that are of the same or similar quality to the starters in order to effectively compete across the three competitions.

In this sense, another midfield signing and another centre-back are needed, while other possible market opportunities will be explored.
