CM: Five potential exits will shape Milan’s end to the summer window

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are working on outgoings as well as some potential signings to round off the window, but the days are ticking by and the end of the window is getting closer. report that there are five cases that will make these last fourteen days of the transfer market at Milan even hotter, namely the potential departures of Alexis Saelemaekers, Divock Origi, Marko Lazetic, Fode Ballo-Tourè and Mattia Caldara, all of which are no longer part of Stefano Pioli’s plans.

Saelemaekers: Milan are grateful to the Belgian for what he has done in his years with the Rossoneri, and relations between the parties are excellent.

However, the winger has understood that with the arrivals of Pulisic and Chukwueze the space available is almost nil and he is waiting for the right offer to say goodbye, with a move to Spain or England possible.

Ballo-Toure: There is an ongoing negotiation with Werder Bremen, but at the moment it is stalled because there is still a gap between the offer put forward and Milan’s demands. The player’s agent is also probing possible alternatives.

Lazetic: The Serbian striker is very close to joining Fortuna Sittard on loan in the Dutch first division, who are winning competition from two German clubs and another Dutch one.

Origi: The most intricate case remains that of Origi who – despite the negative feedback from the club – would like to stay and redeem his disappointing first season.

The former Liverpool man has not yet opened up to the idea of a move to Saudi Arabia, and in the event of a farewell he would prefer to return to the Premier League.

Caldara: The defender’s agent Beppe Riso is trying to enter into negotiations with Verona but the salary he currently gets – around €3m net per season – has not allowed decisive steps forward.

  1. If we sign Pellegrino (looks likely), Caldara definitely needs to exit. And we can also sign Calafiori to meet our quota. I wonder if Pellegrino will count towards the Italian requirement because of his Italian passport and background (probably grandparents), doubt it though).

    Origi needs to just leave. I think Caladara, Ballo-Toure, and Lazetic will easily leave. But Saelasmaekers and Origi are going to be way more difficult.

    1. Keep Origi…he will come good with this young team…he has the speed and experience at the top…Rebic was mostly inconsistent and poor quality and we gave him plenty time after each injury…Origi will come good if he stays….faith…Forza Milan

    2. Getting rid of Saelasmaekers is the height of stupidity. He’s versatile, he can run all day and he’s quick. Origi is a leach. He’s happy to rot in the stands and take the money. Signing him was a sacking offence. We should not lower ourselves to sign the scraps others don’t want.

  2. Caldara,origi are tough to sell . Their salary high , the best ACM can do only loan them till their contract expire with the other club that want loan them cover 60% their salary or just terminate caldara contract that expire next year ( pay 70-80% his salary) . Caldara cannot play back four 433 or 4231 , he can only play with back three

  3. Caldara makes 3 million per season?! And then someone wonders why Rade Krunic wants to leave, being the man who is ready to die on the pitch, yet, he is at the very bottom of the payroll, with 1.2 million?!
