AC Milan are building a great squad with new players that want to compete again for the titles. The Italian team is out of the Champions League again, but they don’t want to miss another chance to go back to the European elite. For this reason, the new Chinese owner, Li Yonghong, wants to bring to the North of Italy the best European players.
So far, Milan bought Lucas Biglia, André Silva, Leonardo Bonucci, Andrea Conti, Hakan Calhanoglu, Mateo Musacchio or Ricardo Rodríguez. Besides, the team has secured Gigi Donnarumma’s continuity, one of the most promising goalkeepers of the continent. But the project doesn’t stop there and the club wants to bring the best players and now the target is an striker.
Patrick-Emerick Aubameyang was the first option but the Borussia Dortmund striker seems to stay in Germany one season more. Actually, both teams met in this pre-season and Dortmund won (3-1) with Aubameyang scoring one goal.
The second target is Álvaro Morata, who has still an option to go to Milan. Although the player wanted to be transferred to Manchester United, this possibility walked away when Lukaku signed for the Red Devils. Now Chelsea and AC Milan are his two options to leave Real Madrid.
But Morata is not the only striker that might go to AC Milan. The Italian club is also interested in Karim Benzema, according to the Italian newspaper Tuttosport. The ‘rossoneri’ could spend between €60M or €70M for the French striker, however it’s very unlikely that Los Blancos could sell the player.
Zinedine Zidane has a special preference for Benzema. We can say exactly the same for the president Florentino Pérez, who went to his home to sign him from Olympique Lyonnais. For this reason, Benzema’s door looks shut, but he could receive an interesting offer from Italy in the next days.
