CorSport: There’s only one way for Milan to sign Morata

A top reinforcement in attack is the priority of AC Milan and its new ownership. An important profile is needed, one that can guarantee at least twenty goals per season.

Alvaro Morata is the first choice of the Rossoneri. Considering his age, characteristics and even opportunities he’s the ideal choice. However, it remains a very difficult operation from an economic point of view. The Spaniard earns 9 million per season and has a valuation of around 60 million euros. To avoid this last problem, Milan has only one option: loan with the obligation to make the move permanent after one or two years. According to Il Corriere dello Sport, the deal can not be separated from this type of formula. But we must understand if Chelsea will be willing to sell the player under these conditions.

The arrival of Morata – or anyway a strong new striker – also clearly depends from sales. AC Milan must make cash and above all must free some slots in the squad. Nikola Kalinic is the first candidate expected to leave. But in these last days Andre Silva’s farewell hypothesis is gaining ground, despite the fact that the Portuguese is a profile appreciated by the club because he’s young and with ample room for improvement (and in addition Silva is an investment of 38 million to be safeguarded). Also out there is Carlos Bacca: Villarreal still like him but so far have not reached a deal for his services. Recently there has also been talks of a return to Colombia, at the Nacional Medellin.

Meanwhile, Il Diavolo is preparing to leave for the United States, where Gattuso’s boys will play in the International Champions Cup. Yesterday afternoon, at Casa Milan, there was the first meeting between Gennaro Gattuso and Paolo Scaroni, new president of the club. Which, according to Il Corriere dello Sport, would have reiterated to the technician the priority to revive the club after the suffering caused by the previous management. This means that the Rossoneri will continue to chase a big purchase for the attack. More likely Morata than Gonzalo Higuain.
