This is year showed that Milan has good players but there are a few positions that we need to improve.
Romagnoli and Theo are two players that can still improve and be a part of the Milan project for the future. We have two positions that need to be improved: RB and CB.
RB – the best choice will be Denzel Dumfries a 24-year old, who is not so expensive at this moment (around €15-20M). Dumfries has the potential to become a top player in the future and Milan can guarantee him a spot in the first XI. The player is already part of the Netherland national team and showed a great football this season before COVID-19 appeared.
CB – there are a few names on the internet that can probably become a Milan player next year but the best one for this team will be Dayot Upamecano. He is a 21-year old center back defender who was born in France. Upamecano has the pace to burn, he is strong, loves to defend, probably the best partner for Romagnoli at this moment.
Completing these two transfers Milan defend will become strong, fast and with the potential to become one of the best in the world. We think that both players can be bought for around €50M. ( €15M for Dumfries and €35M for Upamecano)
Milan play with four midfielders – LM – CM – CM – RM.
Bennacer and Castillejo are doing a good job this season and they should be a part of the team for next year. This means that RM and one CM spots are filled. We have a problem with the second Central Midfielder and with the Right Midfielder. So we need a new CM and an LM.
CM – one of the most important positions in the formation. It should be a player with experience and still young with a huge potential to improve. We have two options: Bakayoko and Koopmeiners. We will choose Teun Koopmeiners, a 22-year old Dutch player who is already the captain of AZ Alkmaar. This season he scored 11 goals and provided 2 assists. The player has a great vision, pass and shoot. He is the next Van Bommel and can create a strong and creative midfield with Bennacer.
LM – there are no doubts that at this moment the perfect player for this position will be Dominik Szoboszlai. This guy has a great season with Red Bull and a lot of teams in Europe want to see him in their starting eleven next year. He is 19 years old Hungarian player with great dribbling, shoot, passing and set-piece. He scored 8 goals and provided 13 assists this year.
Completing these two transfer Milan midfield will become more flexible and interesting with creativity and strong enough to fight with Seria A top teams for a place in Europe. In perspective, a midfield with these players can improve a lot and become one of the best in the world. Both players can be bought for around €40M. ( €20M for each one)
In attack, we have Rebic, Leao and Ibrahimovic. We think that the best signing in this area will be to extend the contract with Zlatan Ibrahimovic who showed that still can play on a high level and can help Milan to get back in Europe.
