The strategy will be to sell Boateng to an interested Bayern Munich in order to acquire some funds to launch bids for the two midfielders. Boateng is valued at about €20 million.
Nani is unhappy at Manchester United, and wants to leave. His agent has been in contact with AC Milan about a move, and he is valued at about €15 million. AC Milan could use the 25-year-old Portuguese international to aid their rebuilding process.
Strootman, only 22-years-old, is also looked upon to be an important piece for the reconstruction of the Rossoneri.
Strootman may arrive as soon as January, with Boateng leaving for Bayern. The Dutch international is valued at about €15 million.
AC Milan will need to acquire funds before the window in order to beat Manchester United to the PSV man. United are reportedly very interested in the midfielder, and moving Boateng before the market opens could allow the Rossoneri to win the chase for Strootman.
