AC Milan are looking to proceed with some sales before they can work on the incoming market, according to a report.
MilanNews writes how after spending over €40m on Maignan and Tomori, Milan are in a phase of reflection and the next moves are being planned carefully with each operation evaluated. Five players in particular could leave the club, with an update on each.
Rafael Leao: Leao has trust of the coach and management, who consider him a talented player who still has a lot to give, but if offer of €25-30m were to arrive it could be seriously considered, with teams in England, Germany and France keen.
Jens Petter Hauge: He arrived last summer for about €4m euros from Bodo/Glimt but could leave as he is at the bottom of Pioli’s left wing pecking order. The Norwegian has several admirers in Germany, Eintracht Frankfurt and Wolfsburg above all, and he could go for €15m.
Andrea Conti: After spending the last six months on loan at Parma, the full-back’s future is set to be away from the Rossoneri. Genoa and Sampdoria are interested, but so far there is nothing concrete.
Mattia Caldara: Caldara will return to Milan after 18 months on loan at Atalanta, who decided not to exercise their option to buy. Several enquiries have arrived including from abroad, but the Rossoneri first want to evaluate him in preseason.
Tommaso Pobega: He had an excellent season on loan at Spezia and Atalanta are seriously pursuing him, while Milan would sell for €15m. He can leave if the right offer arrives, with plenty of clubs circling.
Samu Castillejo: The Spaniard is also considered surplus to requirements and while some enquiries have come from Spain, no concrete proposals have arrived.
