CM: How Conte’s call affects the Buongiorno sweepstakes as Milan continue talks

By Oliver Fisher -

The race to sign Alessandro Buongiorno has begun and AC Milan are joined by two of their domestic rivals ahead of the summer, according to a report. report that Buongiorno is aware that the next few months could mark a turning point in his professional career. The European Championship in Germany beckons where he is now almost certain to start, and then the move to a top club.

Buongiorno could have joined Milan as early as January, but the negotiation had stalled due to the desire of Torino president Urbano Cairo to want to keep the best player in the squad at least until the end of the season.

The Rossoneri remain very interested with the knowledge that now the Granata club cannot block the sale of their captain. Geoffrey Moncada is keeping contacts with the player’s entourage alive, but at the moment all attention is focused on a striker for the incoming coach Paulo Fonseca.

On the other side of the Navigli there are Inter who always keep the developments on Buongiorno under observation, but at the moment do not have the economic strength to present an offer to Torino.

The situation is different for Napoli who are already carrying out their plan. Their director Manna initiated contacts with Beppe Riso, Buongiorno’s agent, after receiving Antonio Conte’s total approval of the possible operation.

The difficulties at the moment are related to the €40m asking price, but Napoli want to act ahead of the competition and will soon begin official negotiations with Torino to avoid the risk that the European Championship could further increase the price.

  1. So coaches are working to bolster their teams. Yet our new coach isn’t starting until July. One month into the Mercado. Can’t see this going well for us. We lose our targets in the first week every year and scramble to find alternatives.

    1. You know there’s no need for the coach to be officially presented in order to have the transfer done and agreed with him. They won’t even use it as an excuse, because still the blame would be with them.

      Many players are fully committed to the Euro now and most transfers will happen afterwards.

  2. Frattesi story all over again. They’re not even trying for Buongiorno. Then they’ll supposedly jump on him when he’s en route to Napoli and tell us “we tried but it was all done with Napoli already”. But hey, here’s Brassier!

    1. Yep, it’s all a game for these lying bankers. Appear to do something but actually wait for the preferred option of the fans and probably Zlatan to be signed elsewhere and they release some horses Sh!t statement of more lies.

      Many will disagree but the lack of Italians in this Milan is worrying me, the identity is disappearing fast, especially is Theo leaves. He may not be Italian but he is a milanista.

      Some who post here actually thought we were in the running for sesko 😂 more association only….we can’t sign best in class but what we could do if we were clever and quick is sign up the best young Italian players

  3. Conte will get who he wants, we will be left with whoever is left and a bunch of French moncada kids. Welcome to the most foreign milan in history.

  4. Because he isn’t a yes man and has true passion and love for this club. That doesn’t align with gerry.

  5. I don’t understand all the negativity here, before the mercado even opened… There’s €80-100m to spend at least, and the roster is already talented. Buongiorno would be great but not a necessity like a striker… let the management work, by Oct/Nov we can properly assess

    1. Did the management say this, or did you just take hearsay from articles and believe Milan has 80 to 100 million to spend on the transfer market.

      You say you don’t understand the negativity, yet you have been following Milan and this management. Have you been sleeping all that time??
