CM.it: Milan and Inter could battle for 106-goal striker as director confirms lack of agreement

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Inter could be set for a market derby to land Torino striker Andrea Belotti on a free transfer, according to a report.

It was a day of presenting new signings for Torino today, and their sporting director Davide Vagnati was put in front of the cameras to answer questions about a variety of topics, one of which is Belotti’s future given his contract expires in June 2022, there is no sign of an imminent renewal and he has been strongly linked with Inter.

“We meet with Andrea every day, he cares a lot about Torino and is an exceptional person, but we must concentrate only on our season. The results will be decisive for everyone’s future. There must be no hysteria, it will happen more often that we come closer to the expiration of the contract,” he said.

Calciomercato.it carries those quotes, and adds that there is clearly no agreement between Belotti and Torino and the risk of losing him for free is concrete. Inter are certainly on his trail and in the last days of the summer window they would have gone for him if the Joaquin Correa deal collapsed.

However, Milan remain observant regarding the situation. Belotti is a Rossoneri fan, and a team that has Giroud and Ibrahimovic in the squad – two players who aren’t that young – we cannot help but think of a new centre-forward arriving, especially on a free.

Belotti has 106 goals and 26 assists in 231 games for the Granata, becoming their club captain and an established Italy international in the process.

    Goal machine. Strong and physical. Passionate about football not playing only for money. Will go for him anytime

      Buy him in January and we’ll get the Scudetto! And he’ll cover for Zlatan once he retires in May. Win-win.

          I’d honestly prefer Belotti to come in next summer. Ibra is injured a lot. He probably will get injured a lot next szn even if he renews. So Belotti will get the remaining game. time along with Giroud. I honestly hope Ibra reduces his salary.

    Seems like the plan all along. Giroud Ibra Pellegri this year, then when Ibra retires bring in Belotti and we’ll have Giroud Belotti and either Pellegri (or if he doesn’t pan out then Colombo). Nice.

    Is not really a battle because if AC Milan wants him i dont see him going to Inter even if they give a higher salary then AC Milan because if he is really a boyhood fan of AC Milan like he says i dont see im going to choose Inter over AC Milan!

    Finally we will get a free transfer of our own 🙂

    Either get him cheap in January or for free next summer, Lets use the money next summer to focus on getting a formidable right winger like Berardi who wants out of Sassuolo.
