10 Shock Signings That Would Make AC Milan Forget Zlatan Ibrahimovic
The massive sale of Zlatan Ibrahimovic baffled many AC Milan fans as there was never a thought that they would lose their best striker this summer.
It is the reality of football that players come and go, and it is time that the fans move on and look to their young and talented side for the answers they so desperately seek.
However, there is still time for the club to reinvest in a massive name if they would so choose. Here is a list of 10 players that the club could use to erase the thoughts of Ibrahimovic from the minds of the fans.

Brazilian starlet Neymar continued to raise his stock at the 2012 Summer Olympics with his nation.
Although the youngster looks set to remain in Brazil until at least January, AC Milan's massive influx of cash from recent sales could give them enough to nearly meet the player's release clause.

Although he already had a stint at Milan, Klass-Jan Huntelaar has finally found his form in Germany.
The Dutch goalscorer lead Schalke 04 back to the Champions League places for the coming season and could be just the kind of signing that Milan need to move forward without Ibrahimovic.

Milan have already proven that they will splash the cash to Barcelona for a world-class striker as they did for Ibrahimovic.
With Pep Guardiola now gone, David Villa could be facing a changing of the guard at Barcelona after spending the last six months out of action.
A move to the Serie A could be a great career move to revitalize himself and get back to the top of his game if the club and new manager Tito Vilanova decide to pursue another path in Spain.

Spanish striker Fernando Llorente has rejected a new contract with Athletic Bilbao, according to TalkSport, and is now hoping to secure a move away from the Basque club this summer.
The 27-year-old would be a great buy, and his size and skill would resemble that of Ibrahimovic in the club's attacking system.

There is no real belief that this could happen with the Uruguayan recently putting pen to paper on a new four-year deal at Anfield, as announced by Fox Sports.
However, a tricky forward with the work ethic of Suarez could be a game changer for Milan and give them the kind of playmaker in the box they need.

Manchester City bad boy Mario Balotelli looks to be once again the third-choice attacker for the defending English Premier League champions.
This summer, we saw a different player in the Italian as he looked to have grown up on the pitch for his nation, as he helped to lead them to the UEFA European Championship final.
The Daily Mail suggested that Milan had given up on attempts to sign Balotelli in mid-June of this summer, but there is still a chance he could make an exit from City despite the protests for Roberto Mancini.

AC Milan have the wage room to pay a "greedy" Emmanuel Adebayor if they desired, thanks to the departures of Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva.
The Italian League could be well-suited to the player's size and strength, but there is no rumor truly linking him with a move to the fashion capital-based club.
