GdS: ‘Only they remain’ – Milan left picking between two strikers

GdS: ‘Only they remain’ – Milan left picking between two strikersThe first day of preseason begins today and there will be no new centre-forward to the new head coach Paulo Fonseca to work with.According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (seen below), Joshua Zirkzee is about to sign for Manchester United and that means there are two solutions left that the Rossoneri management could focus on: Romelu Lukaku and Alvaro Morata.While the situation for the Belgian remains unchanged, with no concrete news and strong competition from Napoli, for the Spaniard things are instead moving along after Zlatan Ibrahimovic himself spoke to him.Clock tickingTime is ticking, the preseason is starting today, and it is unacceptable in the eyes of the fans that on July 8th Milan still does not have its new No.9. Patience is over, not that there was much to begin with, which is why the management has the obligation to get a move on.Something else that hasn’t helped is the Zirkzee saga, the player that was the number one summer target but is fading away due to United’s attempts. The Dutch striker, in fact, is about to sign with the Red Devils, who are willing to pay the commissions requested by Kia Joorabchian, which Milan refused to.In light of this, there is a serious risk that things could now experience a further moment of stalemate, but those around the club are aware that the time has come to get the new striker, with the names of Lukaku and Morata at the top of the list.More Stories / ExclusiveZirkzee and Guirassy to Demirovic and David: Milan striker carousel keeps turning 24 June 2024, 21:00SM Exclusive: Double swoop possible as Zirkzee’s brother is discussed in Milan negotiations 19 June 2024, 18:15SM: Zirkzee deal reaches make-or-break point with Furlani approval needed – the details 11 June 2024, 17:00Choice madeWhich of the two will Milan focus on? Given the narrative of the past few days, the answer is obvious: the Atletico Madrid man is the new first choice. However, he wants to finish the European Championship with Spain and then decide, so there is another wait to come.The success of the negotiation will depend a lot on the will of Morata, who – after having sworn his love to Atletico Madrid – gave an interview yesterday which once again suggested that his future remains to be decided.Considering the €13m release clause in the player’s contract, Milan will therefore have to deal not with Atletico but directly with Morata, who will be asked to accept a small discount on his salary. And Lukaku? It will all depend on what happens with Napoli, who must sell Victor Osimhen first.
