They don't really have to. If they got Origi, they can keep the team the same for one more year, just in case and go on a buying spree next summer if needed.

With the money they get from selling Leao?

Also, they need to replace Kessie and Romagnoli this summer.

It's a possibility. As long as they keep scouting this good, they can sell 1, get 2 or 3 good young players to keep the wins going. Since they still have Rebić, they could sell Leao this season, but they won't.

I'm telling if they "replace" Leoa with Rebic they aren't winning shit. Leoa was a good acquisition for sure but he cost 30m€. It's not like he was some 1m€ Kalulu transfer.

Of course 30m€ Leao is better than 30m€ Correa.

Any football club which has solid-backing owner have better position, better stance to keep their players from other clubs unless a worth-mentioning offer come, like british clubs, like Milan. furthermore, Milan is the current Scudetto.

I think they're going to look to give Rebic to another Serie A team for whatever player they have in mind. I'm guessing towards teams like Roma, Lazio, Napoli etc.

So RedBird is loaning 300m€ from JP Morgan and 600m€ from Elliott itself. They put only 300m€ their own money in.

It's reported the 600m€ loan from Elliott has 15% interest rate. That is a sick money making machine for Elliott. Dunno what is RedBird's plan but given that interest rate, I don't see how it's gonna work. Maybe the numbers are wrong. 15% out of 600m is 90m annually.

Can't see too much spending by Milan in the mercatos.
How the fuck you take a loan with 15% interest. Why not a pound of flash? Would be at least shakespearean?
I understand their last Chinese took such a loan, but he was a scam? If this new owner is someone serious, there is no bank who could give him a decent interest?
90m annually for 600m is just robbery.

If Leao is able to form any consistency this year he'll be a 100 million plus player. My guess is they make a few solid signings this summer to reinforce the midfield and defense, then cash in on him next summer and spent a ton.

Dynamic players of that age like Leao will never be in Serie A for that long. The league just isn't financially well off enough to keep them. Similar to when we signed Hakimi. He was always going to be here for a few years max.

Most importantly the loan with these ridiculous terms is coming from the seller. This is dodgy as fuck. What happens if loan isn't repaid? Do Elliott regain control of Milan while getting 600m cash in the process? :D

No, Elliott keeps those 300m which came from JP Morgan.
Ironically though is this Cardinale was associate at Goldman Sachs. Why couldn't he make a decent loan from his ex partners?

Leao fucking off already?
Let's see how it goes with new owners but under Elliott extension had stalled. When Leao was asked about it, he said he has two years left in his contract. This had always been the issue with Elliott. Wage bill limit makes you a stepping stone for players.

Its a sky formation about their transfer targets. . Not made by fans

Florenzi to be redeemed and Already have adli pobega and origi. Linked heavily to botman and renato.
