A Recap of Milan’s Summer Mercato

Stefano Pioli’s squad needed to be strengthened,

so after the team won the Scudetto for the first time in 11 years and RedBird started taking over from Elliott, they went on the transfer market.

Milan still made some significant moves in the market despite losing Alessio Romagnoli and Franck Kessié and operating once more within a tight budget.

Yacine Adli and Tommaso Pobega returned from their loan assignments,

while Alessandro Florenzi and Junior Messias were purchased by Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara.

However, Charles De Ketelaere, who joined from Club Brugge for €32 million,

is unquestionably the most significant acquisition of the summer.
