AC Milan Transfer News and Rumours Tracker: Week of April 28
AC Milan's loss to Roma on Friday sets them back in the race for a spot in the Europa League, which includes sixth place in Serie A this season.
With Clarence Seedorf in charge, expect a summer of change, in which the club can mold the team based on the ideologies of the new coach.
Here are the latest credible rumours surrounding Milan.
Fabio Coentrao Hope?
Fabio Coentrao could sign a contract extension with Real Madrid, but if he doesn't, a number of European sides are after him. Milan belongs to this list, according to a report from El Confidencial (via Football Italia).
Coach Clarence Seedorf has stressed the importance of having strong fullbacks to play champagne football, and the Portuguese international would fit the bill slotting into the left-back position.
Milan Linked with Keylor Navas
Navas would be an upgrade over Milan's goalkeeping stable, and he'll be watched closely at the World Cup as he's also the starter for the Costa Rican national team.
Milan Want Carlos Bacca?
According to Spanish website Fichajes.net (via Football Italia), Milan want to sign Carlos Bacca to replace Mario Balotelli.
The Colombian striker burst on the scene this season with Sevilla, scoring 14 goals and making a statement that he should be part of Colombia's main rotation at the 2014 World Cup.
Giuseppe Sabadini Wants Donadoni or Spalletti in Charge
Ex-Milan player Giuseppe Sabadini has said that he would want either Roberto Donadoni or Luciano Spalletti in charge of Milan, according to TuttoMercatoWeb.com (via Football Italia).
Rumours have been swirling around Seedorf's job for the past month, but these are perhaps unwarranted, given the Dutch coach has only been in charge since January.
However, according to Tuttosport (via Football Italia), Seedorf's job is indeed in jeopardy as his relationship with Milan's board has deteriorated.
