Over the last few days, AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has been suggesting that the club’s Chinese takeover expected to be completed on the 13th of September could be delayed or even cancelled,
sparking fears among AC Milan fans that the club is not going to invest big money to return competitive at a domestic and European level. According to today’s edition of La Repubblica,
however, Berlusconi has set sights on three Italian stars who could be signed next summer in order to put into practice his plan
of an ‘Italian and young AC Milan’.
Torino star Andrea Belotti
definitely tops the President’s striker shortlist. Scorer of 10 goals in 13 appearances, the Italian hit-man is the best striker that the belpaese
can offer at the moment. Il Gallo
is going to sign a contract extension with Torino on Tuesday.
AC Milan have also set sights on Atalanta wonderkids Mattia Caldara, Matteo Gagliardini and Andrea Conti
and if the Serie A giants manage to have their signatures in the incoming transfer window, the potential AC Milan starting lineup could something like: Donnarumma; Conti, Caldara, Romagnoli, De Sciglio; Gagliardini, Locatelli, Bonaventura; Suso; Belotti, Lapadula
. The Spaniard would be the only foreign player in the lineup with Abate, Calabria, Paletta, Antonelli, Montolivo
e Niang on the bench
As for the winter transfer window, there are just two players who could leave the San Siro. The first one is Keisuke Honda
who is not impressing under new boss Vincenzo Montella and has only six months left in his contract with the club. The second one is Carlos Bacca
who is out of Vincenzo Montella’s plans and could be sold to PSG for € 30 million.
