AC Milan plotting two potential January moves to fill current gaps in Pioli’s squad

The AC Milan leadership, along with Stefano Pioli, recognized that completing the squad during the summer transfer window would be a formidable task. As a result, they have already devised plans for upcoming operations to address key positions.

According to a report from, Pioli and the management are collaborating with an ambitious owner who has designed the club to be flexible and to aim high. After achieving second place in the 2020-21 season, winning the Scudetto in 2021-22, and reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League last year, Pioli has earned trust and a contract renewal.

Although Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara departed at the end of the previous season, the new management, led by Giorgio Furlani as CEO with the assistance of Geoffrey Moncada and Antonio D’Ottavio, has embraced Pioli’s requests to enhance the squad depth with players who align with his tactical style.

However, all parties involved understood that a single transfer window would not suffice to fulfill all their requirements, such as securing a capable alternative to Theo Hernandez and a striker to share the load with Olivier Giroud.

For the deputy left-back position, they have set their sights on Juan Miranda from Real Betis, who might arrive in January, even though there is an opportunity to acquire him on a free transfer next June. In the striker role, Lille’s Jonathan David is considered both for the present and the future.

While he comes with a high price tag, Milan has two advantages in their favor. First, their excellent relations with the French club have been strengthened, particularly through the handling of the Rafael Leao case and their willingness to pay out of their own pockets to cancel the resale clause. Second, the club’s financial health is in good shape, as demonstrated by the approval of their latest financial statements. Furthermore, if they secure a spot in the Champions League round of 16, Moncada and Furlani would have more financial flexibility to further bolster their pursuit of the Scudetto.
