CM: Milan focusing on Reijnders deal – why talks over Musah have cooled

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are pushing hard to try and sign Tijjani Reijnders but they have cooled their interest in Yunus Musah, according to a report.

According to a report from, the Milan management are moving ahead of time to try and reconstruct the midfield ahead of the new season, given Sandro Tonali’s sale and Ismael Bennacer’s injury.

The first to arrive was Ruben Loftus-Cheek and he sure won’t be the last, with talks ongoing over Musah and Reijnders of Valencia and AZ Alkmaar respectively. Both have different roles and characteristics, as well as similar price tags.

However, things seem to have cooled down a bit with Valencia. Milan offered €15m plus bonuses in a proposal that would reach €17/18m for the USA international but the LaLiga side want €25m.

It is a clear distance between the parties that put the brakes on a negotiation that seemed like it could proceed quickly. To complicate things further, there are also the interests of two Premier League teams: West Ham and Fulham.

Reijnders remains the favourite. Milan already have an agreement with the 24-year-old over a four-year contract at €1.8m net per season. AZ Alkmaar have rejected the first offer of €15m and want €20m without bonuses or with easy-to-reach clauses.

  1. Bit disappointing to hear on Musah, the kid seems an exciting prospect – but only so much money to spend. I’d fear for the first few months of the season if the only CMs we have are Loftus-Cheek, Reijnders, Krunic and Pobega though, certainly doesn’t ‘feel’ like a top 4 capable midfield.

    1. I agree, I think we need more midfielders than those 4. Also, if we’re giving up on Musah, might as well give AZ the 20M they want for Reijnders and close this deal quickly. After that, maybe we can find a free agent or on loan.

  2. Why not sign Kamada
    He’s free for god sake!!!
    Pulisic can be Leao deputy
    Kamada for attacking midfielder
    Forget villareal winger
    Move CDK to right
    Invest more on Striker
    Get another DM from EU nations
    If we not sign RLC we can have Amrabat n Reinders for our midfield

  3. No signing of a proper DM 🤣🤣 I just expend my pity to Tomori and the other defenders next season, the bashing would be so loud.

  4. Big mistake by Milan. Musah has a ton of potential and the physicality that Milan need. But they always go for the cheapest option unfortunately. Kind of sad. They went from SMS and Fratessi to Musah and now the 4th best option Reijnders.
