Via Football Italiana, it has been confirmed that Milan will not be able to sign any of the players who joined them on the eve of the transfer window.
After an initial report by Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera suggested that the Rossoneri were planning to sell their current number two, Antonio Rudiger, to Tottenham Hotspur, the Rossos are now refusing to be drawn into any speculation.
Instead, they are focusing on the recruitment of players to replace them, who will be signed by the club’s board, and will be part of the club for the duration of their new regime.
“Milan will not have any players that will leave the club,” a club statement read.
“This is based on the transfer agreement signed with Juventus and we will not sign players that are not in the agreement with Juventus.”
The statement added that the club has already agreed a new deal with Rudiger and he will continue to work with the squad for the rest.
“We will be able, however, to strengthen our squad with the signings of some of our best players and we are looking forward to this,” it continued.
“We are also looking forward and will do everything we can to make sure this happens in the shortest possible time.”
According to Corrietti, Milan will also not be signing any of its remaining number one, Andrea Pirlo, who signed a contract extension with the club this month.
