Especially if they hire Giampaolo and he plays 4-4-2 consistently, we’ll need at least a couple more solid midfielders. Unless he finds use to Conti and Laxalt as mids, for example, or other such creative solutions.

More rumors:

Gianluca Mancini the Atalanta CB, more on Sensi, and speculation that Maldini will attempt to renew Suso.

Also seems like Zapata may en up in Flamengo. He's leaving at any rate. He's been a decent team player for seven years with Milan.

The piece I read said it was about getting rid of the release clause. May be BS of course.

Get rid of all the wingers + RR and buy Bakayoko, SMS and a lb. With 4-3-1-2:


Donnaruma
Calabria -Caldara/Mussachio - Romagnoli - new lb
Kessie - Bakayoko - SMS
Paqueta
A.Silva - Piatek

If we can get a good offer for Suso + with the sales of Castillejo and RR it might be doable.

Bench: Reina, Conti, Laxhalt, Caldara/Mussachio, Zapata, Biglia, Hakan, Bonaventura and Cutrone.

If for FFP reasons we can't spend much then sell Donna as well and play Reina.

Bakayoko and SMS are not happening. 80-100M for SMS would have been the biggest robbery in Serie A.

Di Marzio said, Mancini is a profile that is liked, but there have been no contacts.

I read somewhere yesterday that there might be a gentleman's agreement between Lotito and Maldini. And with the bad season he has had, maybe his demands were lowered.

SMS would improve us and many were disappointed we failed to sign him... but holy shit, based on this season (and the WC) he’s worth a third of the rumored fees.

The only rumor going around is that Maldini is working on getting Andersen and Praet from Sampdoria. And both of them cost at least half of what Lotito wants for SMS. That and Sensi who has been rumored for a while now. SMS rumors to Milan stopped by September of last season.

But even for these guys, people have to be sold in order to "fix" the negative balance.

Nah I saw the one about the “gentlemen agreement” between the presidents for SMS too. It put it in terms of Milan getting priority for not moving for Inzaghi. Sounds like a completely made-up story obviously.

Lotito and gentlemen agreements? Only with the FIGC bosses in order to protect his racist fanbase.

Some fantasy football rumor - Schick for Silva. Would you do it?

If the coach likes Schick and he would fit into his formation and style of play, why not.

On paper I would not mind. I’d say I rate them both pretty much the same and Schick may carry less baggage in terms of pressure and fear to fail at Milan.

Beside the new manager’s preference, it may also be important to take into account financial aspects (like FFP consequences and wages) and injury/health concerns.

Wasn't Schick like injury prone? Has he been playing regularly? I remember he was highly rated then suddenly dropped off after that move to Juve (?)

Yes, that's why I wondered, some kind of mysterious heart issue was claimed when his move to Juve collapsed. He doesn't seem to have done much ever since, but I haven't seen him enough.

Weirdly, he did very well under Giampaolo at Samp, but has since said some not-so-nice things about him.
Schick: "Giampaolo voleva farmi fuori"

He has been very poor the times I seen him play for Roma.

Nobody seems to want James Rodriguez these days. IMO for a reasonable price he'd make a fantastic signing if we're no longer in need of a winger as a priority, can play behind the forwards, as trequartista, and likely beyond though his work rate is dubious for other roles.

If we're looking for a trequartista, I doubt we could do better. But his wages are probably way too high.

If we really move for a 4-4-2 with a diamond midfield, it would make sense to try to get a player like that, who can play behind the forwards or as second forward.

But I guess it all depends on what happens with André Silva, and yeah, I get the sense $$$ would make it impossible anyway.
