Paper Talk: Milan show, Belotti far but Kalinic closer


Milan among the top 5 teams in the world“. It is the opening of La Gazzetta dello Sport where Marco Fassone released a short interview. The rossoneri CEO discussed his first 100 days at the helm of AC Milan: “In 2022, the revenue will doubled in order to be one of the biggest clubs out there. Winning Serie A immediately is difficult but i leave the door open“. In general it’s missing the icing on the cake, however, the newspaper is clear, Kalinic will arrive.

In recent months, Marco Fassone has traveled a lot with Massimiliano Mirabelli to watch players and close new purchases. “The journey i remember with more pleasure? Andre Silva was a blitz. We arrived in Porto in the afternoon and before dinner we had already closed. We also had to face a couple of rejections, for price reasons and because of the closing retardment. A couple of players did not come because the sale of the club was postponed many times. Kolasinac was one. Sometimes it was frustrating but Mirabelli and i never stopped. He has seen millions of matches“.

As soon as AC Milan return to Italy from the tournament in China, Nikola Kalinic will be the new signing. La Gazzetta explains that the club from Aldo Rossi street may not take only the Croatian but also another attacker. Perhaps Belotti?
