AC Milan have been regarded as a sleeping giant within Italian football other the past few years, as the seven-time European Cup winners have not finished in the top three of Serie A since 2013.
Times are changing at the San Siro, though, as both Milan and arch-rivals Inter are eyeing a rise back to the top of Italian football following their lucrative takeovers last year, which has handed Milan plenty of money to spend in the transfer market.
I Rossoneri have already moved in the transfer market to bring Franck Kessie, Mateo Musacchio and Ricardo Rodriguez to the club ahead of next season and further deals are being reported- which leaves AC Milan with an exciting looking XI that could start the new Serie A season.
Not only would this young side create havoc in Italian football next season, it would also hand AC Milan an exciting future and the options of the likes of Carlos Bacca, Gabriel Paletta, Juraj Kucka, Mario Pasalic and others would hand Milan a huge boost in their quest to return to Champions League football.
Whether a side full of young talent would be able to cope with the pressure remains to be seen but AC Milan are making the right moves by signing stars that have already proved themselves elsewhere, which should certainly help them settle into life at the San Siro.
