An intelligent, rational, functional strengthening campaign. This is how I would define the beginning of the AC Milan transfer market, which sees the Casa Milan executives move by looking at the technical but also the economic aspect. The purchase of Tonali, in this sense, was a masterpiece, but now Milan can also count on a talent like Diaz, on a second goalkeeper who is sure to rely on, like the Romanian international Tatarusanu. To be able to deploy a striker like Ibrahimovic with a cost of 10.5 million gross, confirms that the moves of the Rossoneri plenipotentiaries were guided by rationality and patience.
This is just the beginning of operations that must see the arrival of other important players and above all the transfer of redundant players or out of the project. Good news for Pioli and the Rossoneri is the performance of Lorenzo Colombo, which will be confirmed as a fourth striker. Of course he is still immature, he lacks experience but he will grow alongside Zlatan and Ibra can allow him a qualitative leap that will be able to project him high in the consideration of the Milan technical staff.
So no fourth striker and forward with the midfielder and deputy Hernandez, the next two incoming transactions. Of course, now the focus is on some sales that could in the meantime flesh out the coffers in via Aldo Rossi. The little treasure is represented by Lucas Paquetà. Despite Lyon’s denials, the departure of Reine-Adelaide and Depay should open the doors to the arrival of the Brazilian, who is so liked by another Brazilian, the French director, Juninho Pernanmbucano. There may be other solutions for Paquetà’s future, which we see more abroad than in Italy. Krunic He will certainly remain until the game against the Irish, AC Milan’s European debut, then Maldini and Massara will consider whether to accept the proposals of Freiburg, today in pole position for the acquisition of the midfielder, ready to pay 6 million plus 2 bonus. Also Laxalt it is on the market as Duarte and perhaps one between Calabria and Conti. But today there don’t seem to be any tempting offers.
Let’s go back to the entrances. Bakayoko’s situation is very fluctuating. From the Rossoneri headquarters, one day seems definitively lost, then less drastic news arrives. However, in this phase of the transfer market, it appears to be a difficult goal, even if it is totally out of the Chelsea project, which has not even assigned him the jersey number. An alternative is Soumarè from Lille, but other figures are under consideration.
We close with Federico Chiesa. Stefano Pioli likes it very much. He knows him well. It could thus enhance its qualities and allow it to reach those levels of continuity still rarely reached. The deal does not even start with Fiorentina’s figures, but the last ten days of the market could hold many surprises. When we ask about the possibility of seeing Chiesa at Milan, Milan’s denial is strong, clear and decisive. The Viola President Commisso must now evaluate whether to keep the striker, who likes the Milan solution so much, one more season to see him in June 2021, just one year from the end of his contract. Before thinking that this is a mission impossible, I would wait a little longer. Of course, imagining an attack with Chiesa, Calhanoglu, Rebic, with Ibra as a terminal is a fantastic dream for the Rossoneri fans. On the other hand, dreams are like the stars. It is enough to raise your eyes and they are always there … as a Church !!
