Hakim Ziyech is a target of Milan and the Rossoneri and Chelsea are trying to find the right formula for the deal.

After sealing the renewals of Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara, Milan can now finally begin strengthening the squad of coach Stefano Pioli.

A serious target of the club, according to Sky Sport’s Gianluca Di Marzio and others, is Chelsea’s 29-year-old attacking midfielder Hakim Ziyech.

Di Marzio reports that on Friday there were ‘important contacts’ between Milan and The Blues – both newly-owned by Americans – and that contacts will continue to take place over the next few days. The Diavolo are looking for the right formula for the operation, but ‘there is confidence’.

It is believed that Milan are pushing for a loan with option to buy. Ziyech is believed to have given his availability to join the Campioni d’Italia and play under Pioli next season.

Seen this before. Is it a copy paste article from previous season?

Calm down

Get this done and Renato Sanches. Two most important additions for the team. Some rubbish delays are costing us Sanches. I get pissed whenever read bloody PSG beating Milan to Sanches. Crap. Will be so sad to miss out on him. Won’t get a better midfielder.


Agreed, plus those 2 will be so cheap that we can focus on CB and CAM. vice-Theo will also come in cheap, so although it’s not the best we can still pull of an amazing mercato with limited funds.

LB: Cambiasso (5-6M)
CB: Milenkovic or N’dicka (15-18M)
CM: Sanches (15-18M)
CAM: de Katelaere (30M + bonuses)
RW: Zieych (5M with option to buy)

70-77M total. With hopefully 12-15M from Caldara, Duarte, Ballo-Toure, Castillejo sales + 12M from Hauge 24-27M can be raised. So 50-55M would be enough for this years mercato.


As CB Diallo from PSG would be the best option. He doesn’t cost much and covers also LB.

If only the management can see it this way I wish?
