I heard that Real Madrid is eyeing on him. We can forget about him then, Chinese or not.
The price for Mbappé will be sky high. It's not a player you go for when you need 5-6 really strong players, but one you go for when you have an almost complete team that just needs a bit of new blood. So not for us, but for someone like Real Madrid at this point in time.
Mbappe's also still a very raw talent. He's hugely talented, a potentially superb player, but I don't think he's what the club needs right now.
"Inter are ready to prepare a €70m offer for Monaco prodigy Kylian Mbappé, according to several Italian sources."
Mbappe reminds me of Bale a bit. Would love to have him, but like I said I'm optimistic now that the takeover is complete. Our Chinese are apparently quite a bit richer than merdas, so I expect a lot more than what they've done

Actually, Mbappe's potential, energy, and youthfulness is exactly what Milan is missing in attack imo. We've been signing strikers like Menez, Bacca, Luiz Adriano, and Torres in the recent past, and they haven't been that explosive center forward top clubs have. I think that signing Mbappe would complete our attack (assuming we buy Deulofeu), and we would just focus on the midfield and defense.

However, while I know that our new owners are willing to splash the cash this summer, I highly doubt we would be able to get Mbappe with the likes of Madrid and United also interested in him. If we do get him though, Li would be sending a message to the rest of Europe of Milan's intent.

Not being able to sign Mbappe is pretty much expected at this point, but our targets should be something similar to him in terms of potential and age, just of a slightly lower caliber. Players like Fabinho, Kolasinac, and Tielemans are those who we should be targeting and realistically be able to sign, in addition to one or two established older players.

But if we managed to sign Mbappe...

We do need a couple of established stars just to prove to the world that the intentions are real and not just all talk. There is a lot of enthusiasm around the fans now and the best way to capitalize on that is for the owners to put their money where their mouth is. Getting big names will also signal to every other footballer in the world that this isn't just bullshit and that this isn't going to be just empty promises that the old management was making for 5-6 years now.
PerSempre, I don't disagree or doubt Mbappe's qualities, it's his age, experience and maturity that I'm saying may not make him right for us at this moment in time. Inter are apparently prepared to spend 70m on him and he's rumoured with a huge number of top clubs. The way things are, he'd cost well over 50m to buy right now, a third of our supposed budget. While some clubs who already have better developed squad's than us might be able to afford this risk, at this point, we can't trust the attack to a kid that's just broken out. I say this as someone who truly believes in trusting young players and has been advocating bringing young players into the club for a number of years.

In that respect, a guy like Fabregas or De Rossi (rumoured as Montella's choice) may not be a bad idea. These guys  are technical leaders and have experienced every level in the game. For the young players in our group, they offer a chance to learn, but more importantly, they take pressure, responsibility and weight off of their shoulders. Those with experience we do have really only offer this in limited capacity. For example, Paletta is too hot headed on the pitch to really be a leader, Bonaventura is great at times, but goes through lows as well where he struggles to take leadership (as well as lacking experience at the highest levels) and really there isn't much needed to be said about Montolivo's leadership.

Simply put, we need quality and we need players who can come in to help cultivate the growth of young players, not just talents.

Of course, reading stuff like this is what makes me really hesitant:

Also even going for the likes of Kessie:

http://www.milannews.it/rassegna-stampa/...sie-250910

He's great and along with maybe Fabregas he would be excellent, but at 35m and 3m per season, that's a lot for a guy who's just broken through this season at the top level
Fassone on the market (google translate): "We met with clubs and players' agents. The key step will be to put us at a table with the coach and discuss our ideas together in order to operate on the market. it will be an important budget on the market, the goal for the coming years is to build a Milan very competitive and ambitious. and then of course I will have the economic means to try to create a team to achieve these goals in the short term ".

That is excellent news as far as I'm concerned. This summer is going to be really interesting.

I'd love it if we'd sell him and make De Sciglio the captain. And heck yeah get De Rossi.
