Next piece of the rebuilding puzzle says 'yes' to Milan

Nine-time Champions League winners Milan have been in a slumber for far too long. Yet, if anything good can be said about the way the club is run is that the executives haven't stopped trying. Even though the decision to sell Krzysztof Piatek so quickly is still a strange one.

Yet Rossoneri are aware that they can't rely on the veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic for too long and are building a young squad around him. In the winter they established communication with the representatives of a young Argentinian prospect Matias Zaracho.

An attacking midfielder who can play on the right, Zaracho is 21 years old and is still with the home club in which he started his football story - Racing. Young, but experienced, Zaracho played in 83 games for the club, scoring 10 times since debuting in the 2016/2017 season.

16 of those games came in the current season of Argentinian Superliga, as well as four goals.

Milan has managed to convince the 21-year-old that San Siro is the right destination for his career next and he has said 'yes' to joining. Now, Rossoneri need to negotiate with Racing regarding the transfer fee.

The Argentinian club wants €25,000,000 for the player who came through their footballing school. But the European side seems the value of the transfer more at €15,000,000. Two sides must meet in the middle sometimes quick for Milan's sake as reports state that La Liga clubs are also interested in Matias.

Zaracho represented Argentina's U23 side eight times, scoring once in the process. He is definitely on the broad shortlist of players who can come into the A-side if his progress continues as hoped.

Matias Zaracho is known to all the players of the Football Manager series, hopefully, he turns out better than some less-fortunate wonderkids of the FM 2011.
