Milan have signed six new players (some of them on pure loan deals) and three new-old, while saying goodbye, at least temporarily, to 12 men.
The Rossoneri went into the transfer market after finishing the 2019/20 season on a high. Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara were given the task of strengthening the squad of Stefano Pioli but at the same time had an extremely limited budget to work with and had to invest carefully.
The biggest signing – and the one that cost the club the most money – is without a doubt that of Sandro Tonali. The Italian arrived from Brescia on loan with option to buy and he’ll give Pioli important options in midfield. Tonali is joined by Brahim Díaz and Diogo Dalot who arrived on loan, while Pierre Kalulu, Ciprian Tătăruşanu and Jens Petter Hauge came on permanent deals.
The full list of arrivals can be found below, with the transfer fees as they were reported in the media:
