Ibrahimovic and AC Milan FM 20 are LIKE WHAT?

By spaskecar | February 8, 2020 | 7095 Views

Today we talk about Milan FM 20 team guide. In real life, Milan is a club with a massive history but has been struggling in recent years.

In Football Manager 2020, Milan isn’t doing great either. It’s full of players that don’t have high current or potential abilities, and the finances aren’t great either.

Let’s talk about everything in a more detailed manner.


Starting A Carrer as AC Milan in FM 20


When starting a new career as the manager of AC Milan, you replace the previous manager Stefano Pioli. You get a three-year contract that is worth $48k per week.

Milan enjoyed their greatest era in the 1990s, and they are one of the two biggest clubs in Italy, together with Juventus. Milan has won seven Champions Cup trophies and has won the Italian top Division 18 times. Along with other trophies, they’ve won a total of 51 competitions.

They play their home games at the San Siro that has a 75,923 capacity and boasts with:

  • Superb training facilities
  • Excellent youth facilities
  • Excellent youth recruitment

It’s important to mention club legend Paolo Maldini who is working as your Technical Director, Frederic Massara as your Director of Football and Giacomo Murelli as your Assistant Manager.

The media predicts AC Milan to finish fourth in the 2019/2020 season, and you are here to prove them wrong.

These are the best 11 players you have at your disposal when starting a career with AC Milan on FM 20. It’s a nice mix of young and experienced players, but if you want to challenge the title, eventually, you’ll need many better players in most positions.

Please note that we haven’t included January transfers as they didn’t happen in the game yet.


AC Milan FM20 Club Vision and Competition Objectives

AC Milan in FM 20

Unlike ten years ago, AC Milan in FM 20 has a good club culture. They don’t want you to sign players over the age of 30, and they expect you to sign those of age 23 and younger.

That’s a good strategy because about ten years ago, AC Milan was signing all those players who were about to retire. The average player age was 29 or 30. It didn’t bring any results, so it seems AC Milan is going with a different strategy now.

Your job as a new AC Milan manager in FM20 is to qualify for the EURO Cup in the first season. In the second season, the objective is to qualify for the Champions Cup, and in your third season, you need to challenge for the Serie A title.

All of these are reasonable objectives and are possible to do in Football Manager 2020 even before the deadline.

AC Milan Finances


AC Milan isn’t the powerhouse it used to be anymore. In fact, in the first season 2019/2020, you will only have a $26M transfer budget, and you will be spending above the wage budget already. After some adjustments, you are left with about $20M budget and a $120k per week to spend on salaries.

We at FMBrotherhood suggest trying to save money in the first season as you can’t really find players with great ability for only $20M.

There are wonderkids that you can buy for cheap, and you should check out our wonderkids section.

Another thing you can do is get players on loan; one of the best ones you can get at the start of the game is Juan Cuadrado, who is on loan list.

The third thing is to focus on your own youth players. AC Milan has some nice players who can become leading Serie A players in the future.


AC Milan Wonderkids and Good Youth Players


AC Milan is struggling with finances, so one of the things you can do is focus on your youth.

These are the best players in your U20 and U18 that you MUST keep:

  • Daniel Maldini – 17 years old – 158 potential ability
  • Alessandro Plizzari – 19 years old – 157 potential ability
  • Michele Lo Curto – 17 years old – 145 potential ability
