Milan Contemplating Surprising Return in the Midfield

Milan are thinking about a reunion with Aster Vranckx, who wasn’t retained following a loan spell at the end of last season since he played very sparingly. The midfielder stayed put at Wolfsburg and has been playing well so far. He had notched just 235 minutes with the Rossoneri in 2022/2023.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the youngster wasn’t bought out because his €12M option to buy was too high. In addition, he paid the price for the overhaul of their management. The directors who signed him in the first place, Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara, were ousted out of the blue.

Milan could be enticed to make a move, perhaps in January already, if the valuation of Vranckx was inferior now. It might be €8/10M since he has a short-term contract that runs out in 2025.

The midfielder was in talks to head back to Serie A but to a different club last summer, as he revealed in a presser.

“My wish was to leave Wolfsburg. There were positive contacts with Fiorentina. I think I would have fit well there. I needed minutes and trust to showcase my abilities.”

Our Take on Milan and Vranckx

He has interesting characteristics but wasn’t really given a chance the last time out. The midfield isn’t high on the list of priorities for the Rossoneri, unless they sell Rade Krunic or Ismael Bennacer has problems in his return from a knee injury.
