Gazzetta – AC Milan, time to face difficult choices and problems

AC Milan’s season will officially start next week. The rossoneri have to face difficult problems of abundance and mercato.

Concluding the Chinese tour (read here) AC Milan are now ready to go after “the formal things”. In the next few days, the rossoneri will fly to Romania for the first, and decisive, official match of the season, the play-offs of Europa League against local team of Craiova. For manager Vincenzo Montella and the club, therefore, between field and transfer market, it is time to make choices. According to today’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, there are some important issues open to resolve as soon as possible.

The offensive department is still an open construction site. The young Patrick Cutrone has shown to have considerable potential. AC Milan want to keep him but could even decide to give him a loan in order to gain experience and more playing time. Who is certain to leave the rossoneri, on the other hand, is Carlos Bacca. Marseille are very interested, as does Lazio. In the coming days, news are expected. The same fate awaits French striker M’baye Niang, a player considered tactically anarchist and unstable. His future there could be Torino but also attention to Fiorentina. AC Milan are thinking about using the 22 year old in the Kalinic operation.

Now let’s penetrate the tactical issues. La Gazzetta asks an important question: Will Suso retain his status as a fixed started? His current rival is, the new arrival, Fabio Borini. If manager Montella will continue with the 4-3-3 formation Borini will be the rival to overcome. If, on the other hand, L’Aeroplanino should use the 3-5-2, the Spaniards play time could be reduced considerably.

However, AC Milan intend to renew his contract, a clear testimony of belief towards his skills and the important role he could play in the future. But can the team do without Jack Bonaventura? Difficult, nearly impossible. Giacomo, in fact, is Montella’s real jolly. His alter ego is the new number 10, Hakan Calhanoglu: another runoff in sight.
