Milan have signed three new players, while saying goodbye, at least temporarily, to four men.
The Rossoneri went into the January transfer window in first place and despite being on a very tight budget, they managed to reinforce the team in three main areas where quantity and quality was much needed. Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara conducted the mercato.
Three new men were brought in, all with contracts until the end of the current season: Soualiho Meïté joined from Torino to give more options in midfield, while Mario Mandžukić arrived on a free transfer to give an alternative to Zlatan Ibrahimović (but to also play on the wings) and Fikayo Tomori came to allow Simon Kjær and Alessio Romagnoli to catch their breath.
The full list of arrivals can be found below, with the transfer fees as they were reported in the media:
|Player Name||Role||Age||Arrived From||Details (fees unconfirmed)|
|Soualiho Meïté||Midfielder||26||Torino||Loan (€0.5m) + option to buy (€8m)|
|Mario Mandžukić||Forward||34||Free Agent||Permanent deal, six-month contract with option for another year|
|Fikayo Tomori||Defender||23||Chelsea||Loan + option to buy (€28m)|
A few players were sent away, allowing Milan to cut some costs. Léo Duarte, Mateo Musacchio and Andrea Conti were all surplus to requirements in defense and will try to get their careers back on track in their new clubs, while Lorenzo Colombo will be searching for more minutes in Serie B.
