AC Milan missed out on Torino striker Andrea Belotti last summer but are primed and ready to make another attempt to bring ‘the rooster’ to the San Siro when the season ends, according to Corriere dello Sport.
Coach Gennaro Gattuso has won over people at the club and will be rewarded with a new, long-term deal. His first bit of summer business will be to replace Nikola Kalinic, who hasn’t impressed, with Torino hitman Belotti, and due to his poor form this season, Milan believe they’ll get their man for a knockdown price.
Aldo, according to Premium Sport (H/T Italian Football Daily), club president Urbano Cairo could be regretting his decision to keep Belotti, who won’t see his value increase during the summer due to Italy failing qualify for next year’s World Cup.
Football’s biggest tournament won’t be an avenue for the player to showcase his talents at the end of the season, leading to the notion that it will be easier for interested clubs to purchase the 24-year-old.
