‘Milan want Auba, Kalinic & Costa’

Massimiliano Mirabelli confirms Milan are interested in signing Nikola Kalinic, Diego Costa and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who “would be fate”.

Milan have been on the lookout for a striker to complement their purchase of Andre Silva all summer, and Mirabelli revealed the three names his club had settled on, notably leaving out Torino’s Andrea Belotti.

“Aubameyang would be fate: he was the first player I went to see live, my first [scouting] trip was for him,” the sporting director told QS.

“New striker? We’re working on it and we can’t mess it up: Kalinic and Diego Costa are on our list.

“Guarantees? Are [people] aware of what’s been said? If you sign Bonucci and Biglia, you know what you’re doing.

“The turning point of the summer was Donnarumma, a conquest on which to build everything else.”
