CM: Milan to miss out on €31m as trio will return – the plan for the summer

By Isak Möller -

Milan could face a tough summer as in addition to potentially missing out on the Champions League money, three loanees will return. And as a result of that, they are set to miss out on €31m, a report claims. 

According to Calciomercato.com, the players in question are Andrea Conti, Mattia Caldara and Diego Laxalt. Milan were hoping to collect around €31m from the departure of the trio, but that won’t be the case.

Conti had an €8m clause in his contract with Parma which would have been triggered if the club had managed to stay in Serie A. The right-back will now return to Milan and the latter would be happy with a few million, given that his contract will expire in 2022.

Caldara joined Atalanta on an 18-month loan back in January of 2020 and the Bergamo side have decided not to exercise the €15m clause. The story is the same for Laxalt, as Celtic are unwilling to pay the €9m clause.

It will be tough for Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara to find new destinations for the players but it will be necessary. They can forget about the €31m and will have to settle for less this summer.

    It seems that it depends on the results of Milan’s achievements this season. The injection of funds from performances in the Champions League will certainly help the club’s financial condition to hunt for new players. It’s just that if it is true that Milan failed to win the Champions League, it seems that the priority of buying new players is more in the attacking sector. Back-up striker for Ibra and substitute right winger Samu Castillejo. When viewed from the side of the needs of the defender, with the return of the three players, the coating player slot has met the quota. Milan need a center back, right back and also a left back which coincidentally the three players occupy the same position. It’s just that if you want to improve the quality of the game, the three of them have not shown the game at the expected level. But it looks like we have to accept that for financial reasons Milan will use them at least half the season.
