Seven-time European champions AC Milan have a second straight league win in their sights ahead of their trip to face Atalanta in Bergamo this weekend as far as the new season is concerned. The two team started on a winning note ahead of their meeting on Sunday evening.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, AC Milan will look to secure the services of Miralem Pjanic in a loan deal in the summer transfer window. The Serie A giants are preparing an offer to prise the out-of-favour Bosnian midfielder away from Barcelona ahead of the 2022/23 season. Miralem Pjanic has been one of the worst transfers in recent memory, with his big-money move to Barcelona barely paying any dividends. The 32-year-old was a peripheral figure in his debut season at Camp Nou, with Ronald Koeman barely utilising him in the 2020/21 campaign.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Olivier Giroud is the subject of interest from Real Madrid over a possible move in the summer transfer window. The reigning La Liga champions are hoping to pounce on the 35-year-old striker’s potentially reduced role to prise him away from AC Milan. Olivier Giroud has been one of the most underrated strikers of the last half a decade, as he was a handy contributor to Chelsea’s success before making his mark for AC Milan in the 2021/22 season. The Frenchman also played a pivotal role in helping Les Bleus win the 2018 FIFA World Cup, even though he was not prolific.
The 35-year-old had a solid record of 14 goals and four assists in 38 appearances for AC Milan in the 2021/22 season, chipping in with crucial goals to help deliver the Serie A title. But the arrival of Divock Origi this summer might hamper Giroud’s status in Stefano Pioli’s squad. Such a situation has captured the attention of Real Madrid.

According to SPORT, Clement Lenglet could be the first player to leave Barcelona this summer with the French defender attracting interest from several clubs across Europe. The 27-year-old has fallen out of favour at Camp Nou and is open to an exit, as long as his €10 million annual wage demands are met. SPORT claims that he has received a proposal close to the terms he is seeking. It is not clear as to which club has tabled the offer, but the report adds that Lenglet is on the radars of many clubs, with AC Milan and Inter Milan the latest teams to show an interest in the French international.
Champions League winners Real Madrid might need to be wary of Manchester City in the race to sign Rafael Leao, with the Citizens keen on signing the AC Milan star. According to French journalist Santi Aouna, Manchester City are among several clubs interested in signing AC Milan’s explosive striker Rafael Leao and have already initiated contact with his agent, Jorge Mendes, a few weeks ago, putting them in serious contention to secure the 22-year-old attacking sensation’s services.
According to The Athletic, the Italian giants have made a ‘tentative inquiry’ after the midfielder’s fantastic season on loan at Sheffield United. Gibbs-White played his final game for the Blades on Tuesday night against Nottingham Forest in the play-off semi-final. He scored in the game, but sadly went on to miss the decisive spot-kick in the penalty shootout.
Despite the cruel end, it’s been a sensational stint for Gibbs-White at Bramall Lane. The youngster made 40 appearances in total, and scored 13 goals and made 10 assists. That kind of form will no doubt draw attention from other clubs, and The Athletic say that Milan are already looking at the 22-year-old. It is stated that it may be up to Bruno Lage to persuade him to stay at Molineux. If he is to be sold, Gibbs-White could bring in a ten-figure sum, and a sell-on clause could be inserted.

A second successive Italian Serie A title is slipping away from holders Inter Milan after the 2-1 defeat at Bologna in a rescheduled game played on Wednesday night. Inter Milan came into the game against Bologna with a two-point deficit to city rivals AC Milan and with the chance to go one point over the Rossoneri with an away win over Bologna. Also, Italian champions Inter Milan came into the Bologna game with a run of five straight wins in all competitions including a four-match winning run in the league.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Milan are ready to spend up to €100m to strengthen the team next summer and Sven Botman will likely be their first signing. According to multiple reports, the Rossoneri are finalising an agreement with Lille for the Netherlands international, who has already agreed personal terms with the Serie A giants. Milan will invest circa €25-30m to secure his signature in the summer.
Botman is only the first reinforcement for the Rossoneri, who are also on the lookout for a centre midfielder, a Trequartista and a centre forward. Botman’s teammate Renato Sanches is seen as their No.1 target in the middle of the park. Continue reading REPORTS: MILAN READY TO SPEND UP TO €100M IN THE SUMMER
According to Calciomercato, AC Milan views Liverpool ace Divock Origi as a target for the coming summer transfer window. The Belgian international is set to be out of contract with the Reds by that time. The club does possess the option of extending his contract should the 26-year-old make a certain number of appearances this season, but it looks highly unlikely that said criteria will be met before the end of the campaign.
Origi was approached by three Serie A clubs including the Rossoneri, in January. The Serie A giants are set to retain their interest in him. It is believed that the Belgian striker has also received offers from Premier League clubs but is enthused by the chance to join the San Siro outfit should they match his wage demands.

Even though the summer transfer window is not here yet, teams are already building up their plans ahead and are trying to ensure that they prepare a list of their transfer tatgets and potential signings in a bid to have a smooth summer transfer window. One of those teams is Italian Serie A giants AC Milan who are reportedly set to attempt to sign Torino striker Andrea Belotti.
Belotti’s future at Torino is still up in the air as the end of the 2021/22 campaign approaches. The 28-year-old sees his contract expire in June and there seems to be no developments regarding a potential contract extension from the club’s end.
