New targets to start AC Milan’s €300m spending spree

Investcorp are planning to spend 300 million on the mercato to make AC Milan competitive in the Champions League.

Investcorp are in advanced negotiations to buy AC Milan club from Elliott Management. The transaction is expected to cost the Bahrain-based fund a figure close to one billion euros. A huge investment but that’s only the beginning of Investcorp’s ambitious plan for the new AC Milan.

The Rossoneri are ready to challenge the English clubs for some of the biggest names on the market. Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Investcorp will spend a figure of €300 million to improve the quality of the squad and make them competitive even in Champions League. With the new owners, the transfer market strategies will change considerably.

That’s the reason why the upcoming meeting with Sassuolo for Gianluca Scamacca and Hamed Junior Traore could be postponed. The names of Sebastien Haller and Christopher Nkunku have emerged as new targets for the attack. Haller is having a fantastic season with Ajax while Nkunku has been absolutely devastating involved in 48 goals this season.

In addition to these two tracks, AC Milan have also set sights on Nicolo Zaniolo. Roma are asking €60 million but, with just two years remaining in his contract, the Italian could be available for considerably less. The Rossoneri are interested in midfielder Aurélien Tchouaméni, also observed by many European big clubs.

The current plans, however, do not change. Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara will continue to be key figures in Investcorp’s Milan as well as head scout Geoffrey Moncada. The trio will be given new contracts. The signings of Sven Botman and Divock Origi will not be impact by the sale of the club.
