It has been a busy week for Milan fans.
First, the club announced that they would be playing their first ever home game at the Stadio San Paolo.
Now they are set to play their first home game in the league against Atalante.
This means that they have had to play two matches away from home this season and they were only allowed to play one of those away games against Atletico Madrid on October 15.
Now, they are about to face a team that has just won their opening Serie A game and it will be one that they could not have imagined just a few months ago.
De Lucan has been the subject of a lot of interest from around the world and he was also one of the first names linked to the Rossoneri.
However, the Bianconeri have reportedly turned down an offer of around €35 million to bring him in for the 2017-18 season.
That was before the club also made a bid for the midfielder on October 19, but it is understood that that bid was turned down.
Milan are also hoping that the signing of Diego Milito from Juventus will help the team’s midfield.
They have also been linked with a move for Andrea Pirlo, and that is all a bit too much to take for this team.
The first team’s players have been working hard to put together a squad for the upcoming season.
Milan’s first-choice squad is currently made up of Leonardo Bonucci, Luca de Matteo, Stefano Gabbiadini, Stefania Mauri, Marco Coloccini, Paulo Dybala, Giuseppe Rossi, Davide Santon and Antonio Candreva.
They are also expected to have several new signings, with a new goalkeeper coming in the form of Paolo De Silvestro.
In the midfield, De Lucas is set to be joined by a group of young talents who were previously linked to Milan.
The team will also be looking to add some experienced faces to their squad, with the likes of Gianluigi Donnarumma, Andrea Barzagli, Paulo Nagamura and Alessandro Diamanti all being linked to them.
The signing of Fabbris, meanwhile, will allow the Rossi to bring in a new number 10 in the same position as in the past.
With only one goal conceded in his two games at the Vicente Calderon, the young Italian is set for a huge season.
De Somma is a player that has been linked to many clubs over the years, and he has certainly shown a lot more of an interest in the game this season.
It was reported that he had already been offered a contract with Milan, but he has always wanted to play in the Premier League, which means that the club is likely to hold off on any offer.
With De Luco, De Sompoli and Fabbre all still in their teens, there are a lot on the line for Milan in the upcoming campaign.
They will be looking for a repeat of last season’s Champions League quarter final against Manchester United in which they failed to get past the Old Trafford giants.
This will be the team that will be hoping to do what Milan failed to do in the Europa League quarter-finals last season and take back the Serie A title.
