Another interesting name for the right could be Raphinha if Leeds go down. Perfect fit for our 4231 as he combines flair with productivity and is a pressing machine. He has a £25m relegation clause, although I'm 99.9% sure Barcelona are first in line given their connections with several Brazilian agents.

As Kojak mentioned, Pepe is a player I'd take a chance on. Been out of Arsenal's team for 2 years now, and I have no doubt his talent could be rescued by Padre Pioli. My only worry is his defensive work and pressing - with Leao and Pepe on each flank, could we switch to a 433 to mask this problem?

and milan is?:proud:
Milan automatically has a better chance because of who they are. With some extra cash, that is a reality again; and will come sooner than Man Shitty wins anything

Sure. I knew you would respond this way.
Two things:
You yourself are looking for a facilitator... hence the reason why you like Belotti
All of Diaz, Jota, Mane and Bobby Firminho play instead of him. How good could he be in global terms?
All of those are better than Origi. They aren’t free, though.

I think Kessie thinks he's a Gullit when he's a Rijkaard.

When he is focused and determined, but also, aware of who he is, he can be incredibly dominant. I'm sad with what he's doing.
Maldini doesn't think he is Rijkaard. You think he is Rijkaard. He is just Cashie, way below Rijkaard level

15 goals/assists ?? When?
This season across all competitions. But if you look at it objectively, he had 4G + 3A (pretty much half of the total) come from Conference League shit teams... it's like when Andre Silva scored a ton against EL farmers and @leaf thought he was the next CR7 at the time.

If we look at Serie A, 2G + 4A in 2,000 minutes... Messias has 5G + 1A in 1,400 and while Messias had fitness issues to begin with, doesn't seem like he'd tear his ACL or ballsack every 5 games.

But, if Zaniolo can keep fit and is affordable? Sure, go for it. He can be a phenomenal player. The issue is he's missing more than not and we don't need more players sitting in MilanLab all year.

what's wrong with targeting bench players from top clubs? they are still miles above your average starter from some midtable club. or do you believe we can splash 60mil and get the top guys?

Btw that's in addition to players who become free agents this summer e.g. Kamara, Lingard, Tolisso, Modric, Perisic, Isco, Dybala, Dembele, Belotti, Lacazette, Di Maria, Origi + Mertens.

"but when he does, he plays well"

And he's free.
you don't have enough sample size bruh... and the sample you have is skewed.

and I know you haven't watched him enough to see his patterns, passing, in game intelligence etc etc

and nothing is ever free, sign on bonus and from what I've read mf wants 4-5 m LOOOOL

Awful ladri jersey for next season

Lel the bruh looks suicidal repping that thing :lol:

I really dislike it.
This shirt will suit them perfectly.

Adidas, mind you. Some are blaming Puma for their designs but Adidas hasn't produced one decent Juve kit since they got exclusivity with them - hate glasses put aside.

Remember the 20/21 one? That was even worse 😅.

The only one half okayish I can think of is this year's kit.

I wish somebody from Milan could have won this.

Imagine having a beautiful shot hitting a crossbar, that'd be a great way to remember

OH WAIT

LEAO MIGHT HAVE WON IT WITH HIS OVERHEAD KICK

Could someone who was at a game recently, please answer some of the questions our fellow Milanisti have in the Tickets and Travel thread? Thanks!

I can't wait for these anti-Origi posts to be brought up next year @MilanMB and to hear a public apology from you. Reminisce of the Giroud situation this year I feel :D

Origi is not coming here to be our long term or even starting striker. He is a free upgrade to a rotation that needs an extra player, how many games this season could we have used another option.

Why are people so angry about him? Who cares, depth is a thing.

Can't believe this was 10 years ago... I was worried I wouldn't be so bonded to Milan after all my original favourite players started to leave/retire, but here we are a decade later with one of the most loveable teams I can remember, 2 games away from the scudetto 🥰

I don't mind that at all actually. Bring them up.

But Giroud situation this year? Are you out of your mind? Only reason I'm not saying anything is because I promised if he won us the derby.

he will be rotating with Giroud, but considering how uninspiring Giroud most of the matches, my prediction is that Origi will become starter
And I think it will be an improvement, but for me personally it's more important who we get for RW and CAM
