The long courtship was successful, but how much effort. AC Milan, after many hesitations, reached the 35 million requested by Bruges for the young talent Charles De Ketelaere, something more than a promise, a left-handed winger who has class, personality, talent.
He can play in several roles, he is compared to De Bruyne and Maldini and Massara have made him the center of the market. Pioli can finally graft an important starter in the Scudetto team and Milan begins to close the market gap with Juve and Inter. Therefore the alternative tracks, Ziyeck and Zielinski disappear. There is a lot of anticipation for the agreement that can be created with Leao, one of the protagonists of the championship, for which there is an interview set up for the extension of the contract, but it will not be easy to find an agreement. Maldini wants to avoid reaching a free transfer as with Donnarumma and Kessie.
Now the new step of the market concerns the replacement of the ungrateful Ivorian, who arrived at Barcelona. The owners are Bennacer and Tonali, the old dream is to get to Renato Sanches who, however, prefers to continue the negotiations with PSG. Alternatively, there is the English Chukwuemeka, which still costs 20 million. Pioli, however, could also decide to bet directly on the two young players, Adli and Pobega.
Then the fourth central defensive is missing, also considering the upcoming recovery of Kjaer: the favorite is Tanganga so the talks with Tottenham continue. For the rest Florenzi has been redeemed, the expert Origi has arrived to support an already lively Giroud. Not to mention the Ibrahomovic totem, who is sure he can still be decisive.
Formation (4-2-3-1): Maignan, Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Hernandez, Bennacer, Tonali, Saelemekers, DE KELETELAERE, Leao, Giroud. Coach: Pioli.
