Unveiling the Ultimate Milan Makeover



Milan owner Gerry Cardinale has pledged significant changes to position Milan as Scudetto contenders, sparking speculation about the potential departure of Stefano Pioli, who has been at the helm for five seasons. Criticisms arise after each misstep, raising questions about a coaching shake-up, possibly involving high-profile figures like Antonio Conte or Thiago Motta. The outcome could hinge on whether they decide to part ways even if they secure Europa League success.

Rumors suggest a substantial squad overhaul, potentially involving players acquired last summer. Caution is advised, drawing lessons from the Charles De Ketelaere situation. Milan faces the dilemma of replicating the strategy employed with Sandro Tonali, selling a key player for a substantial sum to fund multiple acquisitions. Candidates for such a move could include Mike Maignan, Theo Hernandez, and Rafael Leao, with Leao being the most logical yet least likely due to a recent contract extension.

While reinforcements are needed, Milan should balance continuity with young talents, acknowledging the gradual development of foreign players like Yacine Adli. Players such as Noah Okafor, Samuel Chukwueze, Yunus Musah, and veterans like Simon Kjaer are assessed for their contributions and potential exits. Ismael Bennacer’s importance is highlighted despite a challenging season, emphasizing the need for additional midfield pieces without losing current assets. The emphasis remains on strategic acquisitions rather than a complete overhaul to bridge the gap with Inter.
