AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is waiting for the final two reinforcements to arrive to complete the squad, but they are unlikely to arrive before the season starts.
MilanNews reports that the departures of Alessio Romagnoli and Franck Kessie mean that a new central defender and central midfielder are needed. Matteo Gabbia and Tommaso Pobega in the rotation are not deemed to be enough, but Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are not looking for ‘copies’ of the players who left Milanello, but replacements with other characteristics.
Of course the replacements must arrive without crazy expenses and with a limited budget. The transfer fee therefore cannot be too high and the amount of wages plus agent commissions must also not be excessive. The mold of player wanted is those with ‘explosiveness and tactical intelligence’.
Milan, therefore, will continue on the same path, namely that of looking for young and talented players, giving Pioli the right talent to implement his ideas both on a technical and a tactical level.
