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 NameRoleAgeArrived FromDetails (fees unconfirmed)

Mario MandžukićForward34Free AgentPermanent deal, six-month contract with option for another year
Fikayo TomoriDefender23ChelseaLoan + 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.

What do you mean by creativity? Milan’s only player good in 1v1 situation is Leao who is mostly used as a cf. Diaz is second best and he is used as an AM. This tells you that Pioli is not deploying the wingers as they are used in 433.

The way I see it, they attack the empty space and they hold the ball for the overlapping fullbacks or Ibra/Calha to get into position. Massively different from Suso/Samu or Delofeu/El92 who always tried to get into the box and shoot.

Lmao they are actually slow to be considered a winger. You say they press well? Not even close, they are constantly out of position. Watch closely how deep they come back to defend and that’s if they can defend a counter attack. The reason they hover closer to the middle is bc they don’t have the speed to counter attack from our final third. This is why calabria is always defending 1v1. Our counters usually start on the left 95% of the time bc the left side is actually able to out run and stretch the defense.

When we play against teams with above average speed, you will find out just how out of position samu or salemakers really are. Calabria is very often left to defend alone. I hope it doesn’t happen this weekend but I want you to watch closely to his positioning especially after the ball is played beyond him on an opposing counter down his side. I really hope it doesn’t happen, I hope salemakers destroys the right side, but he just hasn’t done that

IMO, Leao and Rebic are our best wingers, our right is different but it’s not as useless as you think. Look at the image, those stats confirm that Milan uses both wings equally. All wingers are not assisting and scoring, that does not mean that they are ineffective, look at the middle, they are giving Ibra and Hakan all the time to shine. Our left has the best dribbles, our right has two similar box-to-box players who can change roles and add a spice of unpredictability. Rebic/Leao are inverted wingers, they have to wait for Theo for him to deliver… Read more »

I get what your saying but these are the stats that matter.
Samu and salemakers production stats are horrible. They have a combined 3 goals and they have zero assists between the 2. When going to other things like key passes per game, its barely at 1 for both of them. Yes they are hard workers for sure, but they don’t help in defense or offense. Watch closely in the next game and you will see if they are able to get up the field and back in time to help. They don’t have the speed plain and simple.

Gotta disagree on that one. I think our fastest player(top speed) is Kalulu followed by Theo and Saelemaekers. But yes, we need an RW, the problem is that a good left-footed winger is an expensive primma donna in most cases. Like Milan10 says, Rebic played WC as an RW, it might be a good choice to try him there. CF: Ibra Mandzo LW: Leao/Hauge/Maldini AM: H10/Diaz RW: Rebic/Saelemaekers/Samu Plenty of options for rotation and back up for injuries. The problem is that Leao keeps scoring when deployed as a CF, so it makes no sense to change his role. Madzukic… Read more »

It’s crazy. A decent RW could be the difference in winning Serie A!

Sell Krunic for the 8m offered by Torino
Sell Samu for 12m to Spain.

Surely 20m is a good budget to work with.

At least give 3 or 4 million to get Thauvin early.
Lots of players would be delighted to have a chance at winning the league.

Exactly! We are concerned with Keeping krunic when we should be giving maldini a chance to play instead. Look at the mistakes he’s made. That’s something I expect a youth player to make. I’d be fine if maldini made them but not a seasoned player like krunic. Draxler would be a good option for real.

I’m more impressed with the players we got rid of more than the players we signed. Too bad we couldn’t add Castellijo to that list.

I could do better job for salary he’s getting and I’m left footed.

Anyways looking forward to Tomori and mandzukic playing more.

Pioli please use Tonali in midfield with Bennacer and Kessie. Play Calhanoglu as trequartista with Ibra and Leao(Mandzukic/Rebic) upfront. That’s better than using Castellijo or Saelemaekers.

This Milan team is definitely built for 4312 or 442. In order to use 4231 the two wingers have to be producing goals and we only get that from the left wing with Leao, Rebic and Hauge as LWs and Theo overlapping. We barely get any goals from the right wing which makes Milan attack very predictable and easy to stop. The only solution for Pioli if he decides to stick with 4231 is to move either Leao, Rebic or Mandzukic to the RW. We cannot continue to use Castellijo and Saelemaekers there. They are not producing anything in assists… Read more »

CM: Calhanoglu, Hauge, Krunic and Brahim Diaz. Using Hauge as a winger is stupid. Actually Hauge is probably the best player to fill in for Calhanoglu.

Same goes for using Krunic as a DM. He can’t defend and he never wins the ball back from opponents.

Milan have the players for 4312.

“Using Hauge as a winger is stupid. Actually Hauge is probably the best player to fill in for Calhanoglu” – ziontrain 2021
1) hauge has been a lw all his life so no, he’s not cm
2) hakan is pure am so no, being hakan’s reserve doesnt mean ur a cm
3) hauge is not am so no, he’s not proper replacement for hakan
hauge is lw, hakan is am, brahim is 2 footed winger/am. these guys are way too offensive to be balanced cm. only krunic is proper cm, a lcm to be exact.

De Paul/Pobega—-Bennacer/Tonalli

Kessie/Meite

Lmfao once again Milan move too fucking slow! Brobbey looks like he’s about to join Leipzig from Ajax on a free transfer! I swear to god this was the time to get a young forward who has the tools to be a beast! Speed, strength, ball skills, aerial threat! Someone to really learn from zlatan and we look set to miss out again on a player we need! Szoboszlai, simakan and now brobbey lmao. I guess Milan plan on just using zlatan and mandzukic until they are 80!

100%
These next 6 months were perfect time to bed in a young striker. Learn from ibra and take over next year, have ibra as backup then.
Eventually his body will not cope anymore.

Thought ibra was the perfect mentor for Jovic, he would respect him. Now Jovic is back scoring.
Also we don’t need to be bedding in a new striker when we are in champs league

Exactly! Jesus Christ it simply doesn’t make sense. We literally were linked with every defender known to man and clearly decided not to fix the areas that are in real danger. A cf, rw and cam! I told ppl we should have gotten a young forward before zlatan bc zlatan was a free agent that we could have gotten at any time. Not only that but agreeing to zlatan before renewing donnaruma was ALWAYS goin to raise raiolas wage demand for him. It was a obvious tactic. As for a cam. I again said since last year that we need… Read more »

The order of priorities this window were

1. Kessie backup
2. Ibra backup
3. Right wing, replace Samu
4. CB, we actually had a lot of options
I really hope Kalulu gets more playing time with Tomori arrival. He looks a world class prospect
Also want Gabbia to continue his development
If Tomori wants to go home in summer, what will that achieve?

We need to be giving are young stars confidence and opportunity.
Especially if we are trying to attract young stars to join us

“Milan transfer market: the winter session has only closed few days ago but at the Rossoneri offices, they are thinking about next summer. So many buy-options are at stake, only one could remain. A particularly rich transfer session ended at Milan. Faced with the immobility of the other big-name clubs in the Serie. the Rossoneri scored the shots of Tomori (for the defense) and Meite (for the midfield), going to reinforce a squad that has already shown itself to be competitive in this first part of the season. Two loans, with consequent option to buy rights, in addition to those… Read more »

Who told Diretta Goal that we can only redeem one? Bah. Tonali will stay, no matter what. Tomori is eager to stay, maybe Maldini can work on a paid loan with an obligation to buy in the worst-case scenario. Dalot is cheap, he can be redeemed as we need a backup LB. Diaz depends on what Madrid accomplishes in their season. They are lacking on good players, it’s possible that Zidane will be against his sale, but perhaps Maldini can extend the loan for another season. Sources affirm that Mbappe will be an RM player next season, so, they might… Read more »

who told YOU that milan are willing to spend > 100m to redeem all of them and that tomori wants to stay? yes tomori has won pioli, maldini and massara over with his performances but just because they like him doesnt mean he really wants to stay. he’s just being professional on the pitch but he never once stated that he wants to stay. i want him to stay but 28m is 100% too much a for a team who offered 8m and 15m for simakan during last 2 mercati. sources that report milan news claimed yesterday that madrid wants… Read more »

I dont think people realise how scary next summer will be.
We have so many short term players on loan etc, plus we need reinforcements.

No money available, it wont be fun

lets just hope that milan finish top 4 so they’ll get ucl participation fee, which will be ample and significant. i also read that cvc capital partner consortium is gonna buy 10% of serie a’s stake for 1.7 bill and in 1st 5 yrs clubs will get their fair share of the revenue (milan will get 103 m). but the problem is, there’s still disagreement among the serie a clubs and between them and consortium. i read that they will put it to a vote. freaking italians and their bureaucracy. 1st stadiums and now this

No one told me anything, it’s all speculation of the media, all clickbait misinformation. Read Tomori’s interview one more time, he was hyped to join this team. I stated that Gazidis is unlikely spend more than 80m, and I never said we will keep all the loaners. Dalot and Diaz are too expensive, Tonalli is borderline stupidly priced and Tomori worth every penny. So yeah, if Madrid can have a one year of transition, Milan can also do it. Tomori and Finally are priorities. If Madzukic works and Ibra doesn’t break a leg our attack is ready. Now if Calhanoglu… Read more »

“Read Tomori’s interview one more time, he was hyped to join this team.” dalot, brahim hell even senderos said exact same thing. wtf was he supposed to say? “oh i wanted to stay at chelsea but fat lampard is an idiot so i join milan”? just because he’s excited to be at milan doesnt mean milan higher up want to cough up 28m. if they did fofana would be milan player now. “I stated that Gazidis is unlikely spend more than 80m, and I never said we will keep all the loaners.” lets see, tonali: 10m already spent. 15m +… Read more »
