AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani insists they will be title challengers next season.
Milan are battling to cling onto third place this season.
"Milan are the biggest team in Italy in terms of revenue," he told Milan Channel. "And we must improve in order to have a competitive team - both in Italy and in Europe.
"We need to 'give gas' to our players in order to make the Champions League for the 11th time in 12 years.
"Once we do that, hopefully next year, with a team that is properly integrated, we can fight for the Scudetto."
