What formations do you have in mind?

Pioli did not switch to 4-2-3-1 because of Hakan.
He switched from 4-3-3 to 4-4-2 because of Ibra's arrival and Leao's support striker characteristics.
Then he switched to 4-2-3-1 because the midfield duo weren't linking with the front 4, and the forwards weren't covering enough ground or giving enough support to the midfielders, which lead to even SPAL winning the midfield battle against us.
Hakan solved those issues when he was moved to the center.

Without Hakan, we'll need a new "balancer". Diaz might be less than ideal for that role, but even a suboptimal solution is probably better than a switch back to 3 man midfield and 4-4-2. We do not have the personnel for 3 man midfield.

The club is mostly paying the price for Fassobelli's idiotic shorter-contracts-higher-salary policy and also bad luck with timing of this rise in form with expiring contracts.

Hakan and Donna only received 4 year contracts in 2017.
Before leaving in 2018, Fassobelli renewed with Romagnoli by handing him a new 4 year contract, which almost doubled his salary and only extended his stay by 2 years.

The club has been negotiating with Hakan & Kessie for years, and seemingly also tried to sell them, but poor performances killed their market value and probably made the management reluctant to even give them an insignificant raise.
I don't know what their entourages were demanding earlier in the negotiations, but it's probably requests that would seem more than reasonable now.

Fortunately, Kessie's contract still has almost 2 years left. The Hakan & Donna case will depend on how badly they want to stay. I think they'll budge eventually.
4m+bonus for Hakan.

Things like physical can be seen from his highlights.

But the technical/mental can not because of their nature and the nature of highlight videos being the absolute best. We will see.

For now he is a Milan player who legendary Milan defenders saw something in . How can anybody on this fourm who never played a sport let alone football/soccer say anything for the time being.

If he flops then yes. But for now he only has positive imo.
Duarte is not quick...

He was getting burnt to a crisp by serie c strikers just this pre season. Only acceptable reason could be that he was rusty from all his injuries.

He doesn't look promising at all. I agree that we need to see more of him but his last few appearances were horrendous...

People are right about Duarte not having received enough opportunities. However, every Brazilian football fan I've spoken to was baffled at Milan's decision of spending 11m on Duarte.

Hopefully he'll prove us all wrong and cement his place in the squad.

Sucic?

A kid who has barely played first team football as Kessie's backup?

Soumare/Caicedo and Kabak and we golden.

Thauvin on cheap will be a cherry on the top (if Marseille are willing to accept a nominal amount to let him leave early)

Are you saying you never played football before? Or do you mean professionally?

never mind how attractive the league is, FIGC should first understand modern marketing and advance from the 90', EPL teams have won fuck all and yet have the highest revenue league wise

ffs, lower tier teams in Premier League can outbid us

I'm 100% sure that if there's any truth to the Hakan salary demands that's gross wage and not net. No way he has the balls to demand over 6m.

That's not coincidence, a lot of players pull the best performance in the last year of contract, they want to get a better one.

#Rebic has resumed the personalized work on the field avoiding contacts, next week could be back in the group, will miss Celtic and Roma.
#Calhanoglu this morning less swollen but sore ankle. He will attempt to return in 7-10 days
