By Football Itama title Luka ‘not in my league’ for Milan’s game with Juventus?
article Milan are struggling with injuries and a lack of consistency.
Despite that, there is no doubt the Giallorossi are playing better football.
That’s because their players have a lot more to prove this season, but the key for them is to avoid conceding and getting beat at home.
Here are five things we want to know about the Bianconeri’s latest attack.
Milan are currently searching for a new striker and their target is a striker who can produce goals at the top of the league.
It’s unlikely to happen for the time being.
A move for Mario Balotelli has been mooted and a new deal would give Milan a huge injection of cash, but it would need to be agreed quickly.
Luka will not be part of a new contract.
He is now 35 years old and is a key part of the squad’s plans.
The news that the striker has returned to fitness was surprising, and we wonder how much more time he’ll have left?
It was the first time he had been fit in years and he has missed the last six matches.
There are reports he is now fit to return to action against Juve but we don’t know when.
The Brazilian could return to the squad in time for the Milan game on March 15 but we can’t rule it out.
Did the club have to give up a good striker?
There are several reasons for why Milan might want to sell Modric.
Firstly, they could spend less than €15m on a striker, as he has already spent €80m on other players in the last three years.
If they are looking for more, there are others they could look at, including Gonzalo Higuain or Edinson Cavani.
The fact that he’s still playing means that they could use him for a few weeks.
However, that will depend on how his form develops.
If his form improves and he can play consistently, Milan might be tempted to let him go. 4.
Milan are a bit lucky.
They could have won the league this season but they’ve only scored twice in nine games.
In the past, they have only conceded nine goals in five games.
Milan need to find a way to get goals, but they need to keep the opposition honest.
A lot of Milan’s success this season has been due to their attacking ability and they need a striker like Modric to do that.
Is this a good time to sell Luka?
Modric has been a player Milan have struggled to get to grips with.
His style has been lacking this season and he’s not the sort of player who can score.
We expect a similar situation in the Milan derby, with Modric, and his goals will be key.
