CM: Message sent to the market with Conti set to start again – Milan still want PSV star

By Oliver Fisher -

Barring any last-minute surprises, Stefano Pioli is set to stick with Andrea Conti as right-back for Monday’s trip to face Lecce.

That is according to Calciomercato.com, who also claim that at least one of Conti or Davide Calabria will be sold this summer in order to make room for a new right-back, with Denzel Dumfries of PSV Eindhoven the priority at the moment.

Milan’s strategy will be built around reducing costs where possible and generating capital gains, and for this reason Primavera product Calabria looks most likely to leave as any fee received for him would be a pure gain.

On the other hand, Conti arrived from Atalanta for €24million back in 2017 and at the end of the season he will still have an impact of around €9.5million on the balance sheet.

In addition, his salary of €3.5million per year gross drives away all the potential suitors. Calabria, on the other hand, is already attracting many interested clubs.
