How Milan managed to finance a revolution in the team since the sale of Tonali – after the departure of the Italian, six players approached

The sale of Sandro Tonali to Newcastle United has allowed Milan to implement a clear strategy in the summer transfer window, where they have already signed six players.

The Reds sold the 23-year-old Italian midfielder to Newcastle for a total of €80 million earlier this month, a move that was not well received by the club’s fans from the Lombardy capital.

In the days following Tonali’s sale, things were looking a little rough for Milan, especially after the sacking of Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara. Three weeks later, it’s a different story.

Gazzetta dello Sport detail how Milan have wasted no time in implementing their summer strategy following the sale of Tonali, already taking in six players – Marco Sportiello, Luka Romero, Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Tijjani Reijnders and Noah Okafor.

Samuel Chukeueze is expected to arrive from Villarreal next week, taking the club’s total of signings so far this summer to seven.

The aim has been to bring in young but not inexperienced players, allowing them to compete for the top of Serie A.
