Transfer Market Broker Talks Up Milan Latest Addition

After examining several options, Milan took a late flier on Aster Vranckx to shore up their midfield. He joined a €1.5M loan with a €12M option to buy. Like fellow newcomers Malick Thiaw and Yacine Adli and backups Ciprian Tatarusanu and Tiemoué Bakayoko, he didn’t make the Rossoneri’s Champions League list as they ran out of room.

Transfer market intermediary Malù Mpasinkatu discussed the 19-year-old to Tuttomercatoweb.

“I’ve been following him for a long time. His father is Dutch, while his mother Congolese. He popped up on my radar when he was at Malines. His skills have been evident right from his debut against Anderlecht. He provided an immediate spark. He’s the captain of Belgium’s U-21 team and will make the senior one too soon.”

The expert was quizzed about what Vranckx could bring to the table at Milan.

“He’s very physical and can handle the ball. He moves it well and has strong vision, plus he is good shooter from distance. What impressed me the most about him was his hard-working mentality. He can be considered a true box-to-box. In their current scheme, he will play in front of the defense.”

Mpasintaku doesn’t think the newcomer will have issues at San Siro.

“Foreigners aren’t necessarily in awe in this stadium. It’s more typical for Italians, who know its history and can have trouble handling it. The fact that Pierre Kalulu managed to break out in this environment is proof of that.”

The former Rieti sporting director believes Milan completed a nice pieces of business by onboarding Vranckx.

“He’s surely a bargain at those terms. Hats off to Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara and their whole scouting department for identifying him.”
