MILAN INTERESTED IN ANOTHER ENGLISH CHELSEA STAR

As per Italian outlet Calciomercato (h/t Football.London), Serie A champions AC Milan retain their interest in Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek for a possible move in the January transfer window. Inter Milan were interested in securing the services of the Englishman in the summer but were put off by the £17m asking from the Blues and wanted to make a loan offer, but nothing materialised.

A few days back, it was revealed that AC Milan have expressed their interest to sign Loftus-Cheek, with technical director Paulo Maldini informing the Chelsea hierarchy about this. The England international’s contract at Stamford Bridge expires in the summer of 2024, so there are obvious talks about his future and whether he would stay in West London beyond the 2023/24 season. Well, he could be on his way in the coming January itself, with Milan potentially looking to make a move to sign him.

          REPORT: AC MILAN PREPARE OFFER TO SIGN MIRALEM PJANIC THIS SUMMER

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.

Barcelona then shipped him out on loan to Besiktas last summer, but the Bosnian international endured a mixed bag of a stint with the Turkish club. Pjanic is now back with Barcelona, but his future is shrouded under a cloud of uncertainty, with the Blaugrana ready to offload him in the ongoing transfer window. However, the Catalan giants have not succeeded in finding him a serious suitor yet, even though Ligue 1 giants Lyon and Marseille have shown interest in him. But Pjanic’s next destination could be AC Milan, with the Rossoneri keen on prising him away from Barcelona this summer. Continue reading           REPORT: AC MILAN PREPARE OFFER TO SIGN MIRALEM PJANIC THIS SUMMER

               REAL MADRID CONSIDER SIGNING AC MILAN STRIKER OLIVIER GIROUD

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.

                  AC MILAN, INTER MILAN EYEING BARCELONA STAR CLEMENT LENGLET

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.

Lenglet has completed four seasons with Barcelona, having joined the club from La Liga rivals Sevilla in 2018. The centre-back enjoyed tremendous success in his first two campaigns in Catalonia but has seen his stock decline over the past couple of years due to sloppy displays and the emergence of Ronald Araujo and Eric Garcia.

MAN CITY IN CONTACT WITH AC MILAN STAR RAFAEL LEAO

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.

Regarded as one of the hottest attacking prospects in Europe, Leao is finally living up to his immense potential after two seasons of adaptation at San Siro. After joining from LOSC Lille for €24 million in 2019 as a teenage prodigy, he was described as a maverick winger missing end-product in past seasons, but Leao truly came to the fore this past season for AC Milan.

                REPORTS: AC MILAN LODGE TENTATIVE ENQUIRY OVER GIBBS-WHITE

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. Continue reading                 REPORTS: AC MILAN LODGE TENTATIVE ENQUIRY OVER GIBBS-WHITE
