Milan have signed 10 players including Portugal striker Andre Silva and Juventus’ Leonardo Bonucci in a busy window, while teenage goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma agreed a new contract after appearing likely to depart.

“We’ve stopped for a moment after working so hard [on transfers],” Montella told reporters ahead of the second leg of Milan’s Europa League third-round qualifier against CSU Craiova. “We don’t have any hurry, we’re attentive. There’s no deadline.

“Silva is doing well, we know he needs to grow because he’s just arrived. Yesterday he had a small problem with his finger, I’ll evaluate whether to play him. It’s normal for there to be competition at a big club, a great player has to deal with these situations. There’s no rush – and he has to adapt.”
