It’s good to hear him say that a few new signings would make their way to the San Siro, even if Milan get screwed by UEFA, but is this team a couple players away from being good enough for the Champions League? At the very least, if anyone departs (and from rumors, it could be a few) they will need to be replaced, and even if no one does leave, there are plenty of holes and a lack of depth in certain areas.
