AC Milan could offload as many as six big-name players this summer, including a €75m Manchester United target, according to Saturday’s European papers.
Man Utd have been handed a huge lift after reports in the Italian media claimed AC Milan will likely have to sacrifice captain Alessio Romagnoli this summer.
Tuttosport reports that the failure to finish in the top four and qualify for next season’s Champions League will result in a massive shake-up at the San Siro – with Financial Fair Play demands likely to play a large part.
According to the Italian outlet, €75m-rated club captain Alessio Romagnoli could be the biggest name departure with FFP meaning they would likely have to cash in on the player as well as also considering approaches for Suso, Hakan Calhanoglu and Franck Kessie.
And news that Romagnoli could become available will be very good news for United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is currently scouring the globe in search of a new world-class central defender.
The report claims Milan’s planned €35m purchase of Chelsea loanee Tiemoue Bakayoko would also be in grave danger, while Diego Laxalt and Samu Castillejo, Mattia Caldara and Lucas Biglia could be also be sold off.
