After completing 10 transfers, many thought AC Milan were done with signings for this summer, but they were wrong. Nikola Kalinic just joined the club from Florentina according to the announcement made by the club. The original deal is set to be for four years, but the first will be on loan but will include an obligation to buy. The initial fee is set to be 5 million euros but an extra 20 million would add up at the end of the season when the club sign him.
Nikola Kalinic, who is 29-years old, scored 15 Serie A goals last season and will certainly be a fine addition to AC Milan who are looking to compete this year in both Italy and Europe. The former Blackburn Rovers striker would have to face competition from another summer signing Andre Silva upfront. Carlos Bacca would have also been in the mix, if the club didn’t give him out on loan to Villareal.
Florentina too could easily sell Kalinic because they had recently acquired Giovanni Simeone from Genoa.
AC Milan have always been a top club in Europe, but in the recent past they have suffered to even qualify for the Champions League. But now with the new owner and the new squad which they have built, they will hope to regain their previous form.
