The departures of Gianluigi Donnarumma and Hakan Chalhanoglu have seriously disappointed Milan fans, which is why the club's top team is working intensively to strengthen the ranks for the first participation in the Champions League after seven years.
Negotiations between Milan and Real Madrid for a new loan from Brahim Diaz are going in the right direction and are almost over. The Spanish offensive midfielder wants to resolve the issue of his future as soon as possible, and he spoke about it openly and directly for the Madrid Marca "I hope that everything will be resolved soon.
I spent a nice time in Madrid and I am happy in Milan, where we achieved our goal and I can freely say that I had a great time there," said Diaz. Italian media claim that the talks between Paolo Maldini and his former coach Carlo Ancelotti are largely ongoing, and the last step towards the realization of the loan is the amount of compensation in the name of transfer.
The Rossoneri would like to bring Diaz on loan with the option to buy, while Real insists that a return clause be included in the agreement. The buyout clause should be around 20,000,000 euros. It's not just Diaz, Milan and Real Madrid are trying to complete another transfer through the old Maldini-Ancelotti connection.
Dani Ceballos was recently mentioned as a replacement for Hakan Chalhanoglu, and now Alvaro Odriozola is in the game to compete with Davide Calabria.
Let us remind you, Theo Hernandez, who was among the best players of the Rossoneri last season, also left Milan for Real.
In Milan, they obviously like to buy from a select circle of teams, since the new target is from Lille, where goalkeeper Mike Maignan recently arrived from. Namely, the subject of interest of the people from Milan is the Turkish midfielder Yusuf Yazici.
The Rossoneri are still looking for a young striker who could learn from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and since Dusan Vlahovic is further and further away from the transfer to the San Siro, Yazici is their target. Yazici scored 14 goals in 42 games in all competitions during his debut season in the French champions jersey and was one of the best players.
Among other things, Yazici scored a hat-trick against Milan at San Siro in the Europa League in November last year. Lille is asking for a minimum of 20,000,000 euros for Yazici, considering that he arrived last year for 17,500,000 from Trabzon.
There is even a story circulating in Italy that the Turkish national team player is very interested in the transfer to the San Siro.
