Well, if Pioli starts playing like he did in the mystical "lockdown period" then yes, they'd both be really useful. I find the continued pursuit of Kamada to be surprising because of Pioli's inclinations towards a 424.

Even if he wanted to play like he did against Napoli last year where he had a more V-shaped midfield with Tonali at the base, and Kessie and Bennacer on either side, but, even when he used a midfield three against Napoli this year, that shape, which was more of a ^-shape, would be the way to maximize Kamada, if he does come. It's also the ideal place to play Adli, but we haven't seen Pioli do that, at all.

I find Pioli's lack-of-use of Adli coupled with his resistance to playing CDK as a RW, despite so many Belgian coaches saying that's a place for him, mind-boggling.


The funny part is that Moretto (who seems to be in-the-know) gave out a list of players that management are looking at, and... DM wasn't one of them? He said that they want: a striker, a right winger, a 10 that can play as an 8 (Kamada obviously), CB, and a backup for Theo.

Maybe they believe that Pobega can make a jump next year? Or maybe Adli will suddenly play more CM? Kamada playing as a CM with Tonali is... not something I want to see.

I'm curious what happens to CDK. I think they're pushing him into these U21 games so he can put himself in the shop window, but I wonder if we'll get the bites we want? I can see CDK being stuck here, even if reports point to us wanting to move on.

I'm very curious to see what emerges with this regime change.
Bennacer’s injury would seem to necessitate the need for a midfielder. Additionally, we are losing Vranckx and Bakayoko.

Going into the season with Tonali, Krunic, and Pobega is a recipe for disaster.

We have so many needs, I think it’ll necessitate some sales with our limited budget.

We are not gonna sign anyone, we have like 20m transfer budget plus sales.

With pioli making calls and furlani negotiating, it will take some ages before getting a deal done.
Would almost be funny if they actually miss out on all their targets before they realise that nobody wants to join us because of Gerry's money pinching. Of course it will end up hurting the club and us fans in the end

It was so sad how we couldn’t renew Leao because we are so broke.

According to MilanNews, the CEO Giorgio Furlani, the chief scout Geoffrey Moncada and the head coach Stefano Pioli are now the ones calling the shots. Among the many ideas they are discussing is the possibility of focusing heavily on free transfers.

No shit
As if they had nay other options if the rumours about their low transferbudget are true

couldn't offload him even for 3 million redemption.. thanks maldini

If I remember correctly this kid was highly rated and toured when we got him no?

One for the future, a future good/great Italian defender, something Milan has a history off... Then boom;

MALDINI happened...The cunt!!!

Oh wait, no, sorry, that's not what happened... What happened was, drum roll please...

HE GOT SERIOUSLY INJURED... That was sung in like an ominous choir type voice, not aggressive shouty shouty voice.

So I'm not sure how Paolo "Rawdog" Maldini is to blame for this?

Now he did send 35mil to Belgium for that Moncada scouted girl-boy... And might have picked Origi over some child- prodigy... But he can't be blamed for Caldara getting a serious injury?

Come on people, if some are to get over Maldini's untimely sacking, y'all need to stop blaming "Rawdog" Maldini for every sin at Milan.

Ordine says that Maldini really wanted to fire Pioli to hire Pirlo, he says he knows it directly from Casa Milan's offices. He also says that on May 17 Redbird leaked that if they had to choose between Pioli and Maldini they choose Pioli. I heard the same thing too as i said here

The U20 World Cup just finished. I expect Moncada to buy a few kids that shone there, otherwise he appointment is pretty senseless.

Next season mark my words.
Cdk will be a beast. He is going to make you soy boys eat your words.

Get ready for a scudetto provided we make some vital signings.

I'm open to see what they can do, but I'm not hopeful when I see that trio and the rumours about possible low budget that is going around. The fact that Gerry hired freaking Billy Beane makes me think that there is some truth to it. We renewed Leao while we still had Moncada and Massara, if we are going to give MM shit for origi and cdk, we should give MM cred for extending Theo and Leao as well. Imagine if Leao was a player from another club and was about to run out his contract. Would you be confident he would come here ? Would he even be offered the same salary we managed to extend him on with the current managent? I wouldn't be so sure, he probably could get more elsewhere and with the new management pulling the strings and the possible low budget. Even with Elliot, we were spending reasonable amount of money considering how much money Mirabelli and Fassone threw around. We bought Theo for 20M, Leao for 30M (maybe more, I'm not quite sure), Tomori 28 M, Tonali 25M, paid an old Ibra 7M wage while nobody could imagine how much he could help the team improve at this point. I hoped that we would keep on with the same track, but seeing the changes in the management and all these reports about moneyball just makes me less optimistic about our future as a fan and I think we definitely lost a lot of attraction power after losing MM. But we will see I guess
