Milan Tipped to Tweak Their Standard Scheme Next Season

Milan could have a slightly different tactic in the upcoming season, leaning more on 4-3-3 and less frequently on 4-2-3-1, although it’ll remain an option. Coach Stefano Pioli hinted at it in the first presser of the season and has been rehearsing it in the early stages of the summer preparation, Corriere della Sera informs.

The Rossoneri prioritized the acquisition of Ruben Loftus-Cheek for such a reason. He’s a pure box-to-box and wouldn’t have fit their previous scheme perfectly. They haven’t replaced Brahim Diaz right away. They are no longer expected to sign Daichi Kamada, who’s more of a no.10, even though they had come to terms with him.

Milan plot to make Tijjani Reijnders the anchor of their new-look midfield. They have raised their offer, reaching the €20M threshold. AZ Alkmaar is taking some time to mull it. The player is reportedly eager to join them.

The new formation could spell the end of Charles De Ketelaere. The team is evaluating the incoming bids to recoup what they invested last summer.

Our Take on the New Milan Scheme

They weren’t far off from 4-3-3 when they used Franck Kessié, Rade Krunic, or Ismael Bennacer as a muscular no.10, so it’s not a seismic change. But they’ll need at least two more high-profile midfielders to pull it off properly.
