Pellegatti: Why Bremer-Pobega swap could be a win-win plus what sources are saying

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Torino could have a mutual interest in a Bremer-Pobega swap deal during the January window, according to one journalist.

Carlo Pellegatti has written in his latest column for MilanNews that Bremer could be a great signing as cover for the injured Simon Kjaer but also an important reinforcement in the event that Romagnoli does not find an agreement for the extension of his contract.

Pellegatti claims that on Monday afternoon he received a message from a reliable source: “From Turin they tell me that Bremer will go to Milan and Pobega permanently to Turin”. While he has no confirmation on this, it could be a win-win negotiation for both parties.

Meanwhile, given his contractual deadline of 2023, Torino do not want to risk seeing Bremer’s value depleted, while they could use him to enhance the possibility of signing a midfielder of undoubted quality who fits Juric’s system well.

On the one hand, Stefano Pioli would have a top defender who is fast, aggressive and knows the Italian league well. Milan have great esteem for Pobega but there is no absolute conviction that he can adapt to a two-man midfield.

There is a chance that Pobega himself would like to try and convince Pioli again next summer, but for now there remains no concrete confirmation that the deal is being talked about.

    I will agree with a swap only when we have a buy-back option on Pobega.

    Absolutely buyback must be there, but Id like to see Pobega in and loan for Bakayoko terminated in the summer. Getting Bremer in the summer will be much easier, but we risk other clubs snatching him first. I would still risk it.

    By the way Pobega seems to be growing a lot – so it should be maybe Pioli who needs to adapt his system to players? System is an idea, while you have the players you get. Way easier to change the system

    Milan’s system needs to change, IMO, it’s over reliant on what level the number 10 is at, making it useless if you don’t have at least two world class players in that position, which we don’t; the striker ends up isolated all the time if you don’t have the support of two wingers that played very aggressively (look at the stats of our RW players), the two-man midfield exposes our midfielders instead of enhancing their qualities, not a coincidence they have screwed up so much this season…at this moment we simply don’t have the players to play the system that Pioli is trying to play. Also, I like Bremer but Torino absolutely wins in a Pobega-Bremer swap. I would swap Bremer for Saelemaekers and deliver him to Cairo’s house myself.
