After raising the possibility of Ivan Perišić being sold to Manchester United this summer, La Gazzetta dello Sport has taken a closer look at Suning’s transfer market strategy. Here it is, broken down into four basic points:
- Finalise contract renewals for Danilo D’Ambrosio and Gary Medel, as well as complete deals to sign Sampdoria striker Patrik Schick and Atalanta defender Alessandro Bastoni.
- Boost the overall transfer budget by selling at least one player for their fixed asking price. Ivan Perišić is valued at €60 million, Marcelo Brozović will be allowed to leave for €25 million while Jeison Murillo would cost €20 million.
- In addition to the money raised via departures, Suning will spend at least €100 million on new signings. Zhang Jindong is determined to focus the club’s efforts on buying young Italian players.
- No player will earn more than €7 million per season, in order to maintain dressing room harmony.
