AC Milan began their Italian Serie A title defense with a win after they came from behind to see off Udinese at home in a game played last weekend. Milan and Udinese on the opening weekend of the new Italian Serie A season. AC Milan are the new champions in the Italian top flight after they won the league title for the first time in a little over a decade ahead of city rivals Inter Milan. Inter Milan were the Italian Serie A champions before they were dethroned by AC Milan at the end of last season.
According to Il Tempo (Giallorossi.net), Jose Mourinho’s Roma have been offered the chance to sign Chelsea ace Tiemoue Bakayoko, who is currently on loan at AC Milan. But the Frenchman isn’t on top of Roma’s list with the Serie A side considering other options as well. The Giallorossi have already signed midfielder Nemanja Matic on a free transfer from Manchester United, who is set to be a starter under Mourinho, given that the Portuguese is a long-term admirer of the Serbian. However, they want to add another player in that position and are currently in the transfer market for the same.
According to a report by Gazzetta dello Sport, as relayed by Sport Witness, Carney Chukwuemeka has given the first “green light” to join AC Milan in the summer transfer window. The Aston Villa whizkid is also a target for Barcelona, who once seemed to be the front-runner to secure his services this year.
Carney Chukwuemeka is one of the most promising young midfielders in England, with the teenage prodigy making swift progress in the Aston Villa academy over the last half a dozen years. The 18-year-old made his first-team debut for the Midlands club in the 2021/22 season and has turned out 16 times for the Midlands club thus far. Read more… »
According to Spanish publication AS, Real Madrid icon Marcelo, who is set to depart as a free agent this summer, is attracting the interest of reigning Serie A champions AC Milan. Marcelo’s time at Real Madrid will come to an end this month, with the Brazilian defender bidding goodbye to the club in an emotional farewell event earlier this month. The 34-year-old leaves Real Madrid as one of the most decorated players in the history of the club, having won six La Liga titles and five UEFA Champions League crowns, along with numerous other honours.
Real Madrid are reportedly willing to include Luka Jovic in their offer to AC Milan as they look to lure Rafael Leao away from the Serie A champions. As reported by Defensa Central, Real Madrid are ready to up the ante in their efforts to sign AC Milan and Portugal forward Rafael Leao in the summer transfer window. The reigning Spanish and La Liga champions are ready to include out-of-favour striker Luka Jovic as a makeweight in the deal to land the 22-year-old from the Rossoneri.
Manchester United are weighing up a move to sign Sven Botman from Lille this summer, according to reports. Website Football Insider is reporting that the Red Devils are keen on a deal to bring the 22-year-old to Old Trafford as Erik ten Hag sets about adding to his squad ahead of his first season in charge. According to the article, Manchester United are looking to beat Italian club AC Milan to the signature of the Netherlands Under-21 defender as they aim to bolster their options at the back.
The story says that AC Milan are in “advanced talks” to sign Botman this summer, but Manchester United are now ready to hijack that deal. It’s claimed that incoming Red Devils boss Ten Hag is an “admirer” of the left-sided centre-half, who has scored three goals and made one assist in 24 Ligue 1 games for Lille this season. The article also says that Manchester United chiefs have agreed that “preliminary talks” about a move for Botman would take place shortly. Read more… »

The less said about the disastrous release of eFootball 2022 in limited free-to-play form back in September 2021, the better. But if you thought the wreckage of release was enough to put off Konami from moving forward with things, you’d be wrong. Today they have announced a new partnership with AC Milan, with this covering both eFootball rights and Milan’s training kits, going forward.

Like it or loathe it, Manchester United’s players are now on a break after the Champions League defeat. With no game until April 2, the players who are not on international duty have a breather to recharge for the final run-in. One of these is a player who has barely played all season anyway, Jesse Lingard. Of course Lingard’s lack of action is the reason why he is not in the England squad, although that doesn’t explain Jadon Sancho’s peculiar absence from Gareth Southgate’s muddled plans.
Lingard has taken the opportunity to catch up with a former Manchester United teammate who he played alongside between 2016 and 2018, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. This is a far better place for Lingard to visit than hanging out around West Ham’s stadium, and who knows, Zlatan may even be encouraging his old pal to join him in Italy permanently.

Italian Serie A giants AC Milan are set to have an eventful summer transfer window if all the reports surrounding the club’s transfer decisions are anything to go by. Milan have continued their resurgence this season and have impressed a lot of people, including their fans as they look to return to the table of the big boys not only in the Italian Serie A but also in Europe as well. The Milan management are working on how the midfield will look moving forward and there is already the idea of replacing Tiemoue Bakayoko, a report claims.
According to what we have learned from our colleagues at SempreMilan.it, Franck Kessié – whose contract will expire at the end of the season – has been courted by Barcelona for some time and he is unlikely to reject the possibility of joining the Blaugrana or a Premier League team. Milan want Renato Sanches to replace him having tracked him for three years now, and while he may not be a direct replacement in terms of characteristics, he would make Kessié’s farewell less destabilising from a numerical point of view.
