Noa Lang and AC Milan, a love story that would suit everyone except Alexis Saelemaekers? – National football

According to the Italian press, Noa Lang is close to a move to Milan this summer. A deal that would suit both the player and his current club, but less our compatriot Alexis Saelemaekers.

After a couple of lean years, AC Milan are rediscovering the pleasure of fighting for the top of the table, and this season Rossoneri can even dream of Scudetto. After 30 days of competition, our compatriot Alexis Saelemaeker’s club is alone at the helm of Serie A. A first national title since 2011 is therefore possible for the San Siro. Which does not stop us from thinking about next season. After the win of a possible Scudetto, it will be necessary to strengthen the core. The Lombards have been trying for a while to pick up Lille players Sven Botman and Renato Sanches. For the attack, it is whispered that Divock Origi, which will be free of any contract in June next year, would be very close to joining the fashion capital. However, this summer’s most expensive transfer may come from the Pro League. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, AC Milan would be ready to sign a check for 20 million to transfer Noa Lang, the winger from FC Brugge.

However, this summer’s most expensive transfer may come from the Pro League. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, AC Milan would be ready to sign a check for 20 million to transfer Noa Lang, the winger from FC Brugge. However, that sum would not be enough for the Blauw en Zwart leaders, who are striving to make Noa Lang the new record-breaking transfer of the Jupiler Pro League. Two years ago, the Belgian champions paid 6 million euros to Ajax to pick up the unmanageable Dutchman. They therefore want the future buyer to bid 30 million to let it sail to other gardens. Is it really realistic? Noa Lang and his entourage intended to travel after two seasons in the Venice of the North. But if the Batavian winger continues to deliver an anonymous second round, the club could settle for 20 million from Milan. Under Philippe Clement, Noah Lang was essential. He had scored 8 goals and delivered more than 10 assists. The arrival of a compatriot on the bench, Alfred Schreuder, did not play the national preference, far from it. Ronald Koeman’s former assistant has benched him in the last two league games. Lang has not scored in the league since Dec. 15 against the OHL. If Bruges still hopes to hit the jackpot for him wearing his number 10 flocked jacket, it should be sold this summer. It is clear that Noa Lang has not been in better shape in recent weeks. At the club he is said to be more and more grumpy and on the pitch he agrees with Ajax, who let him go a little too easy to Belgium given the talent they attribute to him. Lang has too many disadvantages when his football is not shining. Undoubtedly under Clement, he now has three competitors in his hands since January. Andreas Skov Olsen, Tajon Buchanan and Sargis Adamjan also perform well, while the Dutchman’s is more than disappointing. Maybe Noa Lang needs a change of country to get back on track. He plans to compete in the World Cup next November, and to fulfill one of his biggest dreams, he needs to stay in the spotlight for Louis Van Gaal to keep calling him. Pelican is a fan of Lang, but when it comes to picking, he could probably look at the number of minutes played. And at FC Brugge, there is no guarantee that he will still be important enough to be one of the lucky ones for Qatar. That Milan have now positioned themselves for the acquisition of Lang is perhaps not a surprise. The Italian press was looking for clues that the 22-year-old Dutchman is a fan of the Rossonero club and technical director Paolo Maldini. One of his Instagram stories showed that he was listening to an album titled ‘Maldini’ with the headline ‘If you know, you know …’. And in another post, he got a Milan jersey with Maldini’s name on it. Strange coincidences … Attracting a young player with a huge potential of around 20 million fits perfectly with AC Milan’s new strategy. Take the examples of Rafael Leão, Théo Hernandez, Franck Kessie and Fikayo Tomori. All of these players are considered talents, but they had not yet made it through internationally before settling in the San Siro. Noa Lang would be on the same line. The politics of Milan also pays off, as the five mentioned players are all equally successful. Coach Stefano Pioli lacks opportunities on his flanks and wants to bring more quality. Noa Lang has the advantage of being able to play in almost any attacking position, even in depth with a center forward if necessary. But his future in Milan would be on the right side, which would not be good news for Alexis Saelemaekers. The Red Devils started the season on a high note before losing their place in base eleven. Of the last eleven duels, the former Anderlecht has only been established four times. And with 1 goal and 3 assists, the statistical contribution is certainly not his strong point.
