CM: Milan considering sale of five players to fund more signings – the names and requests

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking at potentially selling five players to fund some new signings in the summer window, according to a report.

According to Calciomercato.com, Milan are proceeding with great calm in the planning of next season and money has already been paid out to sign Fikayo Tomori and Mike Maignan, while a permanent deal for Sandro Tonali is also expected.

A number of sales could help raise money to invest in other areas, with Rafael Leao mentioned as he has many admirers abroad. His agent Jorge Mendes is trying to find an accommodation and Borussia Dortmund are ahead of the others in the race to sign the Portuguese forward, who will not leave for less than €30m.

Tommaso Pobega is very close to joining Atalanta for a figure that will be around €12m, while Jens Petter Hauge has strong admirers in the Bundesliga. Finally there are Andrea Conti and Mattia Caldara, both of whom returned to Milanello from Parma and Atalanta respectively. For the former Sampdoria are interested, but a €5m asking price has been set. For Caldara, there is no serious interest. He will begin his preseason with the Rossoneri and then his future will be evaluated.

    So without selling players Milan doesn’t have fund to buy players 😁😄😃 this management sucks .

    1. Honest Truth says:

      They spent over 50 million euros already on players. Not sure what all of you expect to be able to spend for a club who suffered 100 million euros in losses. It is basic and responsible economics to ensure the team doesn’t end up in serious debt.

        Honest Truth, u’re so…spot on! The rest of the Milan fans here, they’re so dumb! They just don’t know how the market works.

    If they have no budget to buy any single Good player,it’s very simple . Just use Good player from primavera rather than buy very very old player. If the’re looking for Theo deputy, they have milos kerkez .or frigerio in the midfield and EL hilali as attacking mildfielder

      They are not even good enough/ready/have experience to play in the Uefa Youth Champions League let alone the adult version.

    Regrettably,
    The Rossoneri Youth teams is now sustaining the club. They sell all the good players to make capital gain and keep the club afloat.

    The Youth team should be feeding the main team with players rather than providing capital gain to the owners to keep the club.

    While the sale have initial benefits like the £12million for Loca and the proposed £12Million for Pobega, it is very painful to see the Rossoneri Youth players in other clubs.

    Imagine the list

    Christante, Locatelli, Simone Verdi, Pessina, etc and now possible Pobega.

    Annoyingly, we will then go and sign a lower caliber player and over pay like the case of Tonali.

    Locatelli and Christante are far better than Tonali.

  4. Kourosh says:

    Yes but all clubs do this. The key is to always put a buy-back or re-sale clause in the deal to protect the club.
