Bild: Milan, Arsenal and Roma want Leipzig star with €50m clause – why the Rossoneri have the edge

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are one of the teams who want to sign RB Leipzig star Marcel Sabitzer but his asking price is higher than reported.

According to what German source Bild (via MilanNews) are claiming, Milan, Arsenal and Roma are all interested in signing Sabitzer who has a contract expiring in June 2022 and will not renew as he wishes to try a new experience.

Despite several reports released in recent weeks stating that the Austria international could leave for €17m he will not depart for a fee so low, though he will go for a figure lower than the €50m envisaged by his release clause.

RB Leipzig are not too worried about the situation because they already have his replacement in Dominik Szoboszlai who has already arrived from Salzburg. Bild also reports that in Sabitzer’s choice regarding his future, the possibility of playing the Champions League also has a specific weight, which Arsenal and Roma cannot offer.

      They can get Coutinho on loan and pay his full Barcelona wages for less money. Sabitzer is not for Milan, we need better players for that position now.

        Coutinho was good 4 years ago at Liverpool. At Barca he earns 12M/season and is often injured. Very injury prone. We get Coutinho it’ll be a max to max a short term solution.

        Sabitzer has UCL experience. Certainly a upgrade to Hakan. But also that he wouldn’t be very very costly. Something like 20M-30M (max), He is good player who would be entering his prime now. Good for us.

    We won’t spend the $$ to get him although we should…sad. Wish we could have signed Szobozlai last summer! He will be great.

    That is stupid and I think it is the wish of the journalist who is writing this and not Milan. Milan has never once pointed out that he is interested in the Austrian because he is a bad player and I do not believe that Milan wants such a player at the club.

    1. crorossonero says:

      I agree, if they will spend that kind of money it would be better spent on Berardi for right wing maybe.

      1. Eddie says:

        40 millions for Berardi is over priced. He had his up and down. The risk is too high
