Milan, Berardi is the favorite: summit with Sassuolo. And Adli is already on the way

Neroverde request for 30 million, Rossoneri loan idea with bonus: the Locatelli-Juve formula

The works have been underway for some time. The Rossoneri general staff identified the offensive critical issues already at the market in January, but there were no opportunities to intervene during the race. Rather Maldini and Massara, Rossoneri dt and ds, have begun to establish a series of contacts aimed at accompanying the tactical metamorphosis of Stefano Pioli, now increasingly convinced of marrying, next season, the 4-3-3 instead of the tested 4 -2-3-1. Therefore Domenico Berardi’s candidacy has gradually gained momentum.


And now we get to the heart. In fact, the summit between the Milan leaders and the CEO is imminent. del Sassuolo, Giovanni Carnevali, in which we will certainly speak of the man-symbol of the neroverdi. Of course, the negotiation does not appear easy, given that the request from the Emilian club is around 30 million, a figure that does not fall within the Rossoneri parameters: although appreciated Berardi is 28 years old and, in the logic of ownership, does not represent an investment. . This is why an offer is outlined that starts from a loan and which obviously includes a series of bonuses: a bit like what happened last summer for Locatelli at Juve. It is a road that takes a long time, but it must also be said that everyone likes Berardi between via Aldo Rossi and Milanello: Pioli in particular who had put him at the top of his list a year ago. And the player obviously follows this story with clear interest. The idea of ​​putting himself to the test in a top-tier club attracts him and this (indirectly) can help the AC Milan strategy. But other important names are also on the radar of Maldini and Massara, starting with the Dutch Noa Lang, 22, the strength of Bruges, who has already made a splash in the Champions League. As well as Charles De Ketelaere, the 21-year-old Belgian international. It goes without saying that the cost of their tags is high, considering that half of Europe is on their trail.

Doubt Diaz

In the Rossoneri analysis it will be interesting to understand what future will be reserved for Brahim Diaz, below expectations this season. The Andalusian is on loan from Real Madrid also for next season: it is difficult to think about a separation now, but a lot will also depend on the player’s choices. In a similar situation is also the Brazilian Junior Messias: the club of via Aldo Rossi has the right to redeem from Crotone for 4 million. The decision will be made later, also in consideration of the certain exit of the Spanish Castillejo. The French midfielder Yacine Adli, 22 years old in July, will certainly be the protagonist next season. In Bordeaux he has shown that he can play in more roles than midfield, but for him it is expected to be used as a midfielder or on the frontline. Instead for Tommaso Pobega, now on loan to Turin, an experience as a Rossoneri midfielder is expected. The Portuguese Renato Sanches still remains in the background, even if no progress has been made in the negotiations.
