At the introduction of new manager Vincenzo Montella on Thursday, AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani was asked about the Rossoneri’s summer transfer plans.
Milan have been strongly linked with a move for Croatia starlet Marko Pjaca, but Galliani refused to discuss the club’s transfer intentions saying:
“We prefer not to get into football specifics today,” said the Milan vice-president. “Pjaca is an important player, many teams are after him, and so we’ll see.
“Last night we [Montella] met, we spoke about football and players that we desire.”
There are report that the club’s prospective new owners have put together a summer transfer budget of €100 million, and are looking to spend €400m over the next three years to return the Rossoneri to Europe’s elite.
The problem at Milan has never the money. It is how it is used. Last summer the club spent Milan spent close to €100 million on players with varying success.
Most Rossoneri fans would say that the signings of Alessio Romagnoli and Carlos Bacca were good ones, but the performances of Andrea Bertolacci and Mario Balotelli left much to be desired.
The top targets for Milan this summer, in addition to Pjaca, are believed to be Real Madrid, and former Inter midfielder Mateo Kovacic and Villarreal defender Mateo Musacchio, with the pair thought to be available for fees of €25m and €28m respectively.
Interestingly there is not a striker on this Milan wish list, which is a little unexpected with all the rumors surrounding stiker Carlos Bacca and his possible departure from the club.
What do you think of these three players Milan fans? Are they a step in the right direction for a club that has lost its way in the last couple of years.
