In what world is Milan’s lack of a transfer budget acceptable?

We don’t know if Milan will actually be sold this month.

What we do know is that Milan have precisely zero euros in the bank to purchase players with in this summer’s mercato.

It’s funny that one of the world’s most popular football teams, owned by one of the wealthiest and most influential men in Europe, have nothing to spend until they sell a key player.

That can’t be acceptable.

The transfer window is nowhere near over, but I’ve never seen a top club act like this. I also support Aston Villa and even in their darkest moments, they could still put a squad of some sorts together. Milan and Berlusconi are hoping right now that the leftovers of last years disastrous campaign can come together under Vincenzo Montella and bring success back to the San Siro.

There is reason to be optimistic about this coming season in Serie A, but Milan need to bolster their squad and bring fans back to the team. Whilst the Lapadula move is to be congratulated, Milan shouldn’t be the type of team waiting on the decisions of players like Zielinski, Pjaca and Sosa - they need to identify their man, make a great offer and bring him in: not sit around and hope.

At least they know how we feel. All we do is sit around and hope.
