CM: Milan firmly enter N’Dicka race despite seemingly imminent Roma move

By Oliver Fisher -

Evan N’Dicka seemed to be one step away from joining AS Roma on a free transfer but AC Milan are trying they best to hijack the deal late on.

According to, the shock caused by the farewell of Maldini and Massara is still being felt but in the meantime chief scout Geoffrey Moncada, CEO Giorgio Furlani and head coach Stefano Pioli have a summer window to think about and a team to strengthen.

They seem to have fallen on N’Dicka as a concrete target. The French centre-back will leave Eintracht Frankfurt on a free at the end of the month and he ticks a lot of boxes for Milan, starting with his experience at still a young age (23).

He could be added to the centre-back ranks with Tomori, Thiaw and Kalulu but he can also play left-back too. Milan are firmly in the race, hoping to acquire the services of another former Eintracht player – in addition to Daichi Kamada – and to steal a goal from a rival at the same time.

Roma tabled a contract until 2028 and got a verbal agreement, and there was talk of it being made official imminently, but there may now be pauses for reflection given how concrete Milan’s interest is.

  1. according to fabrizio romano then messi is signing for inter and here we are stuck with cardinale sigh

      1. UCL definitely trumps the idea of Roma. We could probably beat juventus to anything as well. PSG is hard because they basically achieve a trophy every year and UCL round of 16

        1. i agree n’dicka is a possibility but i doubt thuram as well because his salary demands has apparently been 7 mil a year and considering our wage cap it doesnt sound realitic.

          1. Yeah but how is it gonna look compared to our players like theo, maignan, tonali etc the club will have a lot of players demanding higher salaries if they give him that salary plus i suspect that both he and his agent will demand many millions just for sign on fees.

      2. Hahhaha – the fact that you even wrote that makes me laugh. Messi to Inter – They can’t even afford a hot dog LOL

    1. Haha! If that happens, they will go bankrupt.. And will be, punished by UEFA for breaching FFP Rules! 😀 Add to that: they are in debt, and need to sell players! As seen with, Hakimi and Lukaku..

      1. yeah i misread it and afterwards clarified that it was inter miami and not inter. iIm aware inter are in debts also one of the main reasons why i was a bit shocked as it came out of the blue but he will play in usa instead,

  2. Marcus thuram would be an extremely tough deal to hijack but I see Ndicka as possible with the fact we have UCL football involved I think he’ll be keen

  3. If we can give him a slightly better offer than Roma in addition to the guaranty of Kamada’s arrival + the opportunity of playing CL…

    that could convice N’Dicka to join Milan. Especiallay if Kamada also joins, that would be an advantage for both Ndicka and Kamada knowing each other for so long (4-5 years) from Frankfurt. And with so many French speaking team mates Ndicka could settle in quickly.

  4. And they supposedly promise starting spot in order to try and convince him. We have Tomori, Kalulu, Thiaw and Kjaer competing for starting spot with Gabbia covering. They are just going to worsen the already tense situation.

    1. Kalulu is not really a CB, and Gabbia might leave this summer. Then it is posible that one of Tomori and Kalulu might leave as well for profit. We need to get Ndicka simply becaouse chance like this to get a free good CB might not come back again in a while.

    1. Tomori.
      You get a player on the same level without paying transfer fee, you sell Tomori and use the money to address pressing needs like a striker, rw, midfielder, back up LB

        1. Used to be weaker. Now they are on the same level.
          He is a better fit next to thiaw because he is left footed. Also Tomori is nothing special anyway. Getting turned around like a turnstile in every game.

          1. How could Bundesliga on the same level as Serie A? Serie A is actually improving and based on the European Competition this year, it pull ahead further from Bundesliga.

            Tomori’s performance this season was bad, that’s for sure.

            Pioli doesn’t care about being left-footed for CB, he said that many times.

          2. European competition success is mostly based on draws. Do you think if Milan and Inter got on the other side of the draw would have gotten to the semi final? Bayern whooped inyer in the group twice, but they drew ManCity while inter drew Porto and Benfica while Milan drew Tottenham and Napoli.
            Same with dortmund and Leipzig

    2. Ndicka is definitely a very good defender with huge potential – at 23 he already won with Frankfurt DFB Cup and Europe League

  5. @Poli I kept posting a reply there but my post fail to appear, lets continue here (if it appear).

    Earlier Frankfurt met Napoli at UCL, so how he performed against Napoli?

    1. I don’t know. Tell me. I didn’t watch those games. I know Napoli won.
      Also, uefa just released the standings and Italy because of this year success in Europe just leapfrog Germany in standings. So that means Bundesliga was ahead up until the end of this season. So as I said they are on the same level more or less

      1. I don’t watch napoli games, I thought you know since it seems you watched him play. I only know the aggregate is 0-5 but I don’t even know if he played.
