Since acquiring new ownership, AC Milan have been on a massive spending spree, the likes of which have never before been seen in Italy (and that’s saying something considering the exploits of Parma, Lazio, et al. back in the ‘90s), seemingly not giving a second thought to Financial Fair Play or any other such considerations as they attempt to regain their former status and greatness.

Even after the surprising acquisition of world-class centre back Leonardo Bonucci from Juventus, as well as the confirmation earlier this summer of highly promising striker André Silva from FC Porto, Milan are not done. Having already been linked to potential Chelsea transfer targets Andre Belotti (for whom they’ve submitted at least one bid) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, they have now also turned their attentions to Álvaro Morata.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Morata, who used to play for Juventus, has changed his tune with regards to the possibility of joining Juve’s rivals and has also made peace with missing out on one season of the Champions League while at the San Siro.
That said, Real Madrid appear unwilling to budge from their €90 million asking price, which had Manchester United move on to Romelu Lukaku instead and has soured Chelsea on the chase as well. But if Milan do succeed in this unlikely pursuit, perhaps that will help Chelsea in the Belotti or Aubameyang pursuits.
Unless of course Milan end up buying them, too, because [FUN] it let’s get wild and crazy.
