Milan Still in the Hunt of Torino Stalwart Buongiorno

Milan are set to rekindle their interest in Alessandro Buongiorno after striking out in January. The Rossoneri want to schedule a meeting with Torino soon to try to beat the competition. They’d like to outline the terms of the deal as quickly as possible, La Repubblica informs.

Achieving that won’t be easy since Torino have every interest in stoking a bidding war. The upcoming European Championship could be a big showcase for the defender, attracting rich foreign suitors.

Milan wish to gain the pole position in the Buongiorno race sooner than that. Inter are also in hot pursuit of the Granata star. However, offering as much as the counterparty demands, €35/40M, will be more challenging for them.

Moreover, Torino president Urbano Cairo isn’t yet resigned to the idea of losing his star. He stated after the most recent clash with Juventus that it wouldn’t be the defender’s last Derby.

Our Take on Milan and Buongiorno

Even though the Rossoneri could numerically be set in the back even after bidding farewell with Simon Kjaer, which they definitely should since he has shown his age lately, in reality, Malick Thiaw and Pierre Kalulu have worryingly regressed this season, primarily due to a lack of continuity stemming from their numerous injuries. They need a more reliable partner for Fikayo Tomori, and he’d be an elite one but would come at a premium. They might have to pick and choose between their priorities.
