AC Milan are expected to make quite a few changes to their squad this summer and with Brahim Diaz now set to leave, a lot of focus will be on the attacking trio. However, one signing doesn’t depend on the Spaniard.
Diaz started the season as an attacking midfielder but switched to the right flank in the second half of the season. Therefore, this summer, Milan intend to bring in a right-winger (if it’s indeed true that Real Madrid will keep Diaz).
As explained by today’s edition of Tuttosport (via SempreMilan), Empoli youngster Tommaso Baldanzi has been linked with Milan. However, the 20-year-old would not arrive to replace Diaz but instead Charles De Keteleare.
Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara believe that a right-winger is more important in the event of Diaz’s exit. Baldanzi would likely not become a concrete target for Milan, therefore, unless a good offer arrives for De Ketelaere.
