Milan Might Need to Sell Before Spending in January

Milan have been often tipped to pursue Jonathan David despite Lille’s resistance. While there are no doubts about their interest in the Canadian star, they need to raise money to go after him in January. Despite his declining price tag, his valuation remains high, especially since they hadn’t planned to do much during the winter, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

The striker is more likely to finish the season at this current club and then bolt next summer when he’ll have just one year left on his contract. He has slightly improved his subpar numbers with two recent goals. He has hit the net 4 times in 15 appearances.

Milan are contemplating some sales to foot their attempt for David. They are dangling Rade Krunic on the transfer market, but he won’t depart for a discounted price tag. They want €15M to sell. Fenerbahce and Lyon haven’t come close to such a sum.

In addition, Luka Jovic is finally hitting his stride and found the target in consecutive matches. They could halt their search for a deputy striker if he kept up his level of performance.

Our Take on Milan and David

While they’d obviously utilize him right away, they are targeting him to succeed Olivier Giroud, and deals of this magnitude are always improbable midseason, especially since they don’t seem to have a budget for the next window. The role wouldn’t be high on their list of priorities especially if they got eliminated from the Champions League.
