CM: Milan unlikely to benefit from Pessina’s 50% clause – €2m compensation awaits

By Isak Möller -

When Matteo Pessina was sold to Atalanta as a part of the Andrea Conti transfer, AC Milan decided to include a 50% resale clause. However, the clause will soon be removed from the midfielder’s contract. 

As reported by, the clause doesn’t have an expiration date per se but it will be removed when Pessina reaches 100 appearances for Atalanta. He’s currently at 75, meaning he will get there at the start of next season.

Milan are perhaps still holding out hope that he will be sold before then, either to them or another club. These two scenarios are very unlikely, though, as Atalanta see Pessina as a future captain of the team.

The Rossoneri will, however, get €2m in compensation from Atalanta as soon as the clause is removed. This is peanuts compared to the value of the player now but it will at least give Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara something.

  1. They should just sign him for 40M and get 50% back. For 20M he sounds like a great deal, better than most I’ve seen circled around. Pessina and Diaz already sounds good, Messias as 3rd choice and we are ok.

    1. Diaz was a good sub. He played for Díaz Fc. Massias could be a great sub but he also play for him self. AC Milan is not for every player because not all players have potential or hungry to be great.

    2. It’s not Football Manager, it doesn’t work that way – Atalanta know Milan have the clause, so they are only interested in how much they could make – Milan would have to pay a lot extra than any other club would because Atalanta know the situation.

      The purpose of the clause wasn’t to buy back but to make a few Euros from a future sale assuming Atalanta moved him on.

      Still, does any deal in recent Serie A look worse than Conti for Pessina and a shedload of cash? Honestly can’t think of one.

  2. Lol we suck. Always giving away our prospects for free or for way undervalue. Especially our italian ones. Milan hates their own. Locatelli undervalued, pessina 2m…. lol, donnarumma free.. nice job guys! Value!

  3. A useless team like Milan do nt deserve Italian best club in Europe useless club with useless own n board members,we allow all our young future players to level for free without giving them chance t prove they quality.maldini is this how u start when your father brought you to Milan before you become a hero today why not allow the young shall grow to enjoy the club why not bring out money to make good business and archieve what you invest why all this shit we went to champion league without preparin our team with good quality players and coach Elliot want to win trophy with loan players while order club spend good money on good players to play the league,is R Madrid,Man U,inter M,juventus,PSG,Bayern M,Ajax,Chelsea, Man city,Barca,Liverpool,better than Ac Milan in Europe the answer is no why can’t we spend money to buy players and go back to our record holder.if the own nas board are not ready to spend money on the club please let them sell the club for a good business man from Asia country and stop this rubbish they are doing for us
