CM: Milan’s interest in Monaco’s Fofana grows – the salary and transfer fee

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan remain very interested in signing AS Monaco midfielder Youssouf Fofana and are starting to learn what it would take from a financial perspective to sign him. 

As reported by, the Rossoneri are keen on the French midfielder who will only have one year left on his contract come the end of the current season.

That may prove to be a key feature in the eventual negotiations, as Monaco may not be able to get the sort of fee that they want. The Ligue 1 side would like to get €30m for Fofana, but they are unlikely to find a club that will pay such a fee for a player with one year on their deal.

He won’t sign a new contract with Monaco and is known to be interested in Milan, and he suits the club’s desire for a more defensively-minded midfielder who can screen the back four.

Fofana currently earns €2.6m per season but he will be expecting a pay rise once he moves, as it is likely he will join a better team than Monaco.

There is plenty of interest in him from the Premier League too which could cause an issue for Milan, but he may be a good economic option given the lack of time on his contract.

  1. Statistically he’s somewhat better than Adli and Bennacer. One of them needs to go if he arrives. And Pobega needs to go

    1. None of them need to go. We still need players for rotation.

      And Pobega still useful for Uefa list, unless we buy other >21y.o. association trained players or our academy graduate that played for different team (like Donnarumma, Locatelli, Cristante, Bellanova)

      1. You cannot just buying without free room for midfield. They will be unhappy become bench player if too much player on midfield . One from adili, bennacer or pobega need to go for playing time . Yes ACM need 4 player from ACM academy ( free nation ) already have : Calabria , Third GK ( replace Mirante that out next season ) ,bertesaghi ( Theo Vice) , Zeroli or Camarda ( if pobega choose to leave ) . 4 from other serie A club academy : Florenzi ,Terraciano. ACM lacking player from other serie A club academy for registration,maybe can buy bungiorno from torino
