It’s not hard too see that Milan are having a striker problem at the moment. They only managed to get the ball into the back of the net 21 times in 15 games in Serie A so far with Suso being our topscorer with 5 goals. Not even the strikers managed to score more goals with Kalinic having three, Cutrone two and André Silva not a single one in Italy’s top flight competition. With Montella sacked there could be a change of formation and a fixed starting eleven is urgently needed. The man responsible to make the important changes is our newly appointed coach Gattuso who could decide to bench Kalinic and give André Silva and Cutrone their chances to prove themselves. But one thing is sure: AC Milan need a top striker.
And at this point an important rumour gives every Rossonero hope. We’re talking about Aubameyang who wanted a move to Milan in this summer but couldn’t swap teams as the Milan management decided not to purchase the player. The Gabun striker already has 11 goals and 2 assists in 12 Bundesliga games and also proved his worth in the Champions League so far by scoring four times in six appearances. Still he couldn’t help his team to remain in Europe’s highest tournament and it’s no secret that he had some differences with his club which already left him out of the squad for this reason.
Tuttosport reported that the top-striker is searching for a new club and would like to give his old love AC Milan a new chance to sign him. A deal could be reached at about 60Mio.€. An amount of money that is difficult to spend in the Diavoli’s current financial situation. Still there’s a chance to get him by selling some players. An important role in this process plays Nikola Kalinic. The Croatian already became an out-of-favour player for many fans and as there is interest from Chinese teams the player could be sold to to finance a part of the move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Also other players are being avaluated to be sold such as Paletta, Gomez, José Mauri and even Hakan Calhanoglu who couldn’t match up with the expectations of the club after having been banned in his last spell at Leverkusen for nine months.
The situation is difficult but lets hope we can bounce back this season. And as always: FORZA MILAN
AUBA IN, KALINIC OUT?
