5 Players Mirabelli & Gattuso will scout in World Cup

AC Milan sports director Massimiliano Mirabelli and coach Gennaro Gattuso have traveled to Russia to personally scout some of their top transfer targets.

Mirabelli and Gattuso are in Russia and should attend at least three games. That is Russia-Saudi Arabia (Thursday 5 pm), Portugal-Spain (Friday 20:00) and Argentina-Iceland (Saturday 15:00). The first will be the inaugural game of this 2018 World Cup.

Aleksei Miranchuk

According to Il Corriere dello Sport, the special player to be observed in the Russian national team will be Aleksei Miranchuk.

Miranchuk is a 22 year old attacking midfielder of Lokomotiv Moscow able to play as winger too (on both sides). Already a Russian Premier League winner he has played more than 140 games scoring 20 goals despite his young age. The Russian is considered as one of the most promising prospects in his homeland and commands a price tag of around 20 million euros.

If he manages to impress Massimiliano Mirabelli and coach Gattuso he can become one of AC Milan’s first signings this summer. It’s all up to him.
