Silvio Berlusconi sold the property of AC Milan to a Chinese investor group for €750M. The former Primer Minister has no longer link with his beloved club and the new owners want to invest a lot of money to go back to the European competitions.
According to the Italian newspaper Il Corriere dello Sport, Milan have eyed two Real Madrid players to join the club in the next season. These are Álvaro Morata and Mateo Kovacic, both with experience in the Italian Serie A.
Álvaro Morata hasn’t played any minute in the Champions League quarter-finals against Bayern Munich in both games. Therefore, despite scoring important goals in La Liga like the one against Sporting Gijón, he’s left apart in the crucial games of the season. This point, linked to the fact that the BBC are untouchable, put him in the market for important clubs.
Kovacic, on the other hand, has never had the opportunity to bright with Los Blancos. The Croatian midfielder has Zidane’s confidence but Modric, Kroos and Casemiro are fixed players in the line-up. When they were injured, he had the opportunity to play, and he succeed, but went back to the bench when they were recovered. Kovacic played at Inter Milan, so he knows the city and the competition very well.
Another players targeted by the Italian club are Alexandre Lacazette and Patrick-Emerick Aubameyang. Both strikers are the alternative if Morata finally decides to stay in Madrid. These are quite expensive acquisitions, but the North Italian club needs to spend a lot of money to improve their current squad.
Despite the good start of the season, Montella’s side is out of the European zone right now and they’ll struggle to get a ticket for the Europa League. Milan is one of the biggest clubs in Europe and they need to compete and play the Champions League as soon as possible.
