CM: The ‘dream’ and the commissions – Milan still lead Man Utd in Zirkzee race

By Oliver Fisher -

There continues to be conflicting reports regarding Joshua Zirkzee, and the latest one has claimed that AC Milan are actually still the favourites to land him.

Calciomercato.com confirm that Manchester United have officially launched their mission for Zirzkee. After days of internal evaluations, the Red Devils board has authorised coach Erik Ten Hag to speak directly with Kia Joorabchian, the agent of the striker.

Milan now have a serious competitor for their number one target and United’s concrete entry into the race risks further extending the timeframe for Milan, who are now waiting to understand whether or not the English club are willing to satisfy Joorabchian’s request of €15m in commissions.

At the moment we are still in the early stages of the negotiation, but United have tried to understand what the Dutchman’s intentions are. This is why Milan still maintains an advantage having already agreed the terms of Joshua’s contract (€4m net per season for five years) and received preference.

However, Zirkzee is definitely not in a hurry, focused only on the European Championships with the Netherlands. He asked Joorabchian to postpone the final decision until the end of the Oranje’s adventure in Germany.

Zirkzee still hopes to fulfil his dream of wearing the Milan shirt but has not closed the door to Manchester United, at least for now. The Devil is in his destiny, it remains to be seen whether it will be that of Milan or Manchester United.

  1. I would love to know what are we waiting for? Juventus just signed 3 midfielders and we’re still stuck on whether we’re getting plan A or plan Z

      1. Not gonna happen – but we seem to be stuck in another never ending transfer movie (with Belgian subtitles).

      2. Every morning usually the first thing I do is check news. This summer it’s making me sick with all the bs that comes out and nothing happens.

    1. Stop repeating this false rumour, Juve have only signed Doughlas Luiz. They haven’t signed Thuram or Di Gregorio.

    1. and turns out it might have been the best choice of all if Milan would grab him for under 20mil, can finally focus on other positions and Pavilids would also start training with the team from the beginning

  2. 55m total for this guy who even not yet play for dutchland at euro 2024 ? Over hyped like USA at Copa America.. hahaha

        1. There is no dutchland there is Dutch people though who are from Holland which is the same as Netherlands,

          Deutschland is correct though.
