Agent suggests Lille winger and Dinamo Zagreb star are both unlikely to make Milan move

By Oliver Fisher -

An agent who works with Jonathan Ikone and Lovro Majer has seemingly poured cold water on the idea that either or both could join Milan.

It has been well documented by several sources that Milan are in the market for a new right winger as Samu Castillejo is likely to leave the club this summer meaning a replacement will be needed, with several targets mentioned such as Domenico Berardi and Papu Gomez.

Meanwhile, Hakan Calhanoglu’s decision to cross the city divide and join rivals Inter has left Milan scouring the market for a new attacking midfielder too. Ikone and Majer have been linked with the Rossoneri over the past few weeks as potential solutions for the two roles.

MilanNews interviewed Marco Busiello, an agent and CEO of the Firs1 agency, which collaborates in Italy with the Niagara Sports agency. Busiello is the agent for transfers to Italy for several players including Ikone of Lille and Majer of Dinamo Zagreb, and he spoke about each.

“Ikoné is an important player. Milan have an excellent relationship with Lille, as the Maignan affair also demonstrates. I think he is destined for other markets because he has a very high cost, so I think he will go to other leagues, barring that there are no last-minute surprises,” he said.

“Majer is a technical player with great potential. I don’t know if he is a goal for the Rossoneri, who are perhaps looking for a more experienced player in that position. Majer in Croatia is compared to Modric, he will have a great future.”

  1. Milan must take Ikone seriously and must not think about the price, buying Ikone would be a great thing and a huge progress for Milan both in the field and in finances, because Ikone will be twice as expensive in a year. Ikone is a dangerous and very dangerous attacker on the wing.

    1. I feel ACM are going down the same road of wanting everyone and signing second sting players to show they have signed someone

      ACM are show weakness and will be lucky to even finish in top 4 of Seria A next season
      Maldini get your act together and deliver Ikone would be great and Majer would excellent as well………. do it!

    2. Issue is, Dortmund are likely to be shopping for a right-winger of his profile with €70-80m in their pocket. TBH, I think Ikone to Dortmund is a done deal and agreeing it is part of what held up the Sancho transfer.

    3. Agreed. But it won’t happen unfortunately. We are a club of free transfers and loans only. Terrible. Ikone should be number one priority along with a starting #9. But looks like we are going the cheap route with Giroud and have to stick with Sammu as nobody wants him. Fkn sad

  2. Ikone is going to Dortmund to replace Sancho. Fkn sad. He is ideal for Milan. But he probably didn’t want to come to Milan anyways as we would make him a low ball offer and he will make more $ in Germany. I’m afraid to say we are a club of only free transfers and loans….terrible
