New, comments

The purchases of Gonzalo Higuain and Tiemoue Bakayoko need to be completed this summer.

In the last few weeks, reports questioning Gonzalo Higuain’s future at AC Milan have emerged. It was claimed that the Milan management is looking to invest the €36 million needed to buy the Argentine into another player. This move wouldn’t be intelligent, Higuain and Tiemoue Bakayoko need to be purchased at the end of the season. Money needs to be invested in the two players in order to allow the club to move forward.

Gonzalo Higuain is one of the best strikers in the world. His great abilities have proven he is able to help the team when needed. Being the most experienced player in the squad, the striker is able to guide his teammates. Although the first half of the season had its ups and downs, Higuain is a consistent player and is crucial to Gennaro Gattuso’s squad. The former Real Madrid striker has scored six goals and assisted once in 15 Serie A appearances.

Higuain is still adapting to life at AC Milan.

Higuain needs time to adapt to his new club. His permanent signing should be Milan’s priority. The player’s will and determination to leave an impact at the club is growing, he is motivated and is ready to help the Rossoneri win titles. Milan will not buy a striker as good as Higuain with €36 million, faith must be put in the attacker.

Tiemoue Bakayoko is having a great season. The beginning of the 2018/19 campaign was a nightmare for the Frenchman. After being heavily criticized by the media for a few weeks, Bakayoko has improved his game. The midfielder took some time to adapt to the Serie A, and has gone ont on to excel. He is currently one of the key players in the squad and Gattuso wants to keep him for a long time. He averages 1.6 interceptions every league game, as well as two tackles. Bakayoko is on a loan with a €40 million option to buy.

Bakayoko has become a key player at AC Milan.

The signings of Gonzalo Higuain and Tiemoue Bakayoko should be considered a priority by the AC Milan management. Both players have been crucial to the squad, their form is improving and will continue to get better if given more time. The players will positively impact the whole club and will help them bring home many trophies.
