AC Milan managers, after making new signings, have now started thinking of making some sales. The club is looking to let go of some players that are not needed in Stefano Pioli’s technical and tactical project.
In these times, all clubs do need some much-needed cash to be able to invest further in the market, and the Rossoneri are no different.
Milannews.it reports that Andrea Conti and Mattia Caldara should be out, but that will not be enough. More money is needed which could be collected in the event of a sale regarding Jens Petter Hauge.
In fact, Milan expects to collect a fee around 12 million euros for the former left-winger of Norwegian club Bodo/Glimt.
As for Rafael Leao, Milan would only be open to selling him if an important financial offer arrives, a proposal around 25 million euros would be enough.
Samu Castillejo is also for sale. However, he is not fetching any offers for the Rossoneri leaders, there have only been some surveys by a few Spanish clubs and that is it.
Moreover, a profile whose future is in the balance is Tommaso Pobega. The situation is the following: AC Milan would like to keep Pobega, but if they fail to make some capital gains by selling other players, they might be forced into sacrificing the young Italian midfielder and letting him go on a transfer in this current mercato session
The situation of team captain Alessio Romagnoli, however, is more delicate. His contract is set to expire at the end of next season. His agent, Mino Raiola, had proposed an exchange operation involving him and Juventus’ player Federico Bernardeschi who is also represented by the super Italian-Dutch agent. However, AC Milan rejected the idea.
It is very difficult to get a cash offer for the centre-back, which is why there are two scenarios. The first is that Romagnoli leaves in an exchange transfer to another club. As for the second solution, he leaves as a free agent when his contract expires next year.
Another situation that is very important for the market men in charge at Casa Milan is that of Franck Kessié, adds Milannews.it. The source claims that there has been some progress recently on the renewal front. The hopes is that, in the coming days, the meeting with his agent George Atangana will lead to the long-awaited white smoke.
Then, AC Milan will start to think again of making new signings to address the playmaker issue which was created by the departure of Hakan Calhanoglu. The same source writes that there will be a new meeting this week with CSKA Moscow for Nikola Vlasic, 23-year-old Croatia international.
AC Milan is also looking to sign a young striker and a right winger. For the right flank, there is the name of Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea (who can also play as an attacking midfielder behind the striker), while his alternative is Atalanta’s Slovenian 33-year-old Josip Ilicic.
