Milan Preparing to Massively Overhaul Their Roster

It’s not yet known who will lead the transfer market for Milan, but they are set to significantly reshape their squad next summer under any scenario. Most of the players that have flopped this season will leave. The management will have to restore their depth, which has been almost non-existent in 2022/2023.

Per La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Rossoneri will need to complete at least six or seven acquisitions. Malick Thiaw was the lone bright spot of the last summer’s session. Charles De Ketelaere will stay put and aim to atone for an underwhelming maiden Serie A season. The front office will move on from loanees Sergino Dest and Aster Vranckx. Instead, Yacine Adli could head elsewhere with such formula.

Milan are slated to bid adieu to a few other players. Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s deal expires in June. There have been no recent talks about his extension. He suffered two muscular injuries in a row after returning from an ACL tear. Tiemoué Bakayoko will return to Chelsea after the Rossoneri tried to end his two-year temporary spell multiple times. Fode Ballo-Touré has been expendable for a few windows.

According to TuttoSport (via OneFootball), the first order of business will be to find a striker to pair up with Olivier Giroud. Marko Arnautovic represents a sound cheap option, but the brass is monitoring few youngsters, especially in Ligue 1. They have Lens’ Luis Openda, Arsenal loanee Folarin Balogun, and PSG’s Hugo Ekitiké on their radar.

Rafael Leao is expected to put pen to paper on his new Milan contract, which will run through 2028, next Monday, Gianluca Di Marzio informs.
