CM: Moncada fully convinced by Veliz but there is competition from Serie A

By Oliver Fisher -

More and more sources are continuing to confirm the news that AC Milan have a concrete interest in signing Alejo Veliz from Rosario Central.

According to, Milan’s scouting work has led to the identification of a profile considered very interesting for the future and that is the 19-year-old Veliz, of Rosario Central and the Argentina U20 national team.

He scored three goals in four games at the recent U20 World Cup where he played alongside Luka Romero, and he is considered one of the strikers with the greatest potential in all of South America.

He is ‘phenomenal’ in aerial play, has great physique and good technique which is enhanced also thanks to an ability to be found in the right place at the right time.

However, Veliz is a target for Torino too and they will meet his agent – who arrived in Italy yesterday – in the next few hours. Milan have not yet taken concrete steps because they first have to sell Ante Rebic and Divock Origi, as well as decide Lorenzo Colombo’s future.

Despite this, an attempt in the next few weeks cannot be ruled out because Geoffrey Moncada likes Alejo a lot. Rosario Central want €14m and are waiting for offers, knowing through intermediaries that teams in Europe are keen.

    1. About time we had an Argentinan striker, should have been Batistuta, I recall Oscar Washington Tabrez wanted him but we failed to sign him and this signing would quench the disappointment I had all those years ago, plus Milan would have e a brilliant striker who is very much in the mould of Batistuta!!!

      Come on Moncada!!!, In you we trust our beloved club

      1. Berlusconi tried to aquirre batistuta before that as well but you gotta respect him for sticking with fiorentina for as long as he did, I would have loved to see him in red and black as he was also one of my favourite players of that decade,

        1. Great of Seria of yesteryear

          Berti & Fontalan of Inter
          Cashragi & Signori of Lazio
          Balbo, Fonseca and Ganini of Roma
          Zola, Asprilla and Brolin of Parma
          Sousa, Deschamps and Moller of JUVE
          Zednel Zeman and his outrageous Foggia
          Mancini and Lombardo of Samp
          Thomas Skruaye of Genoa
          Careca, Haji, Enzo Scifo the list goes on and on.

          Never will the Premiership reach those ‘footballing levels, all passionate players playing for the badge, real icons.

          Like Albertini said there are no more true club icons in football

          Privileged to have been watching Seria A since the early 90’s

          1. Thanks that was a view back to my childhood i remember all those players but some i havent thought of for a long time 🙂

            Even though he was an inter man berti was a great defender but they have always had a bunch of good players as well. I like both the lazio men but you should also mention diego fuser who also played in ac milan twice, balbo and fonseca they were great, dont forget cafu though 😀 those parma teams was great, i have always been sorry not to see zola in ac milan but they had all sorts of players like melii, benarivo. juve had a plethora of course always liked conte the player and of course del piero but also ravanenlli, Foggia kolyvanov was great. Smapdoia had a bunch, painfull season when they bought evani and gullit but that team was quite mesmerizing and even ended up beating us 3-2 if i remeber correctly. genoa i come to think of panucci and eranio who later joined us but thats a bit in a haze 😀
            Hagi always was jealaues when he joined barca was it from brecia and he already had played for real madrid previously.

            I tend to agree it was also a different sport, cant remember when fair play was introduced but players really could get manhandled back then with out great punishment.

            Albertini is usually right even though i would hope otherwise,to still come around also one of my favourite players from the early to mid 90ies.

            Indeed and back to albertinis comment its never been the same but obviously as people gets older there will be some nostlagia but also the milan teams from that late 80ies era to 94 could still fight and beat nowadays teams in my book even the best of todays sport.

  1. 11 goals in 22 games in the Argentine league this season. Transfermarkt has him listed at €7m, but with him being so young and having competition I guess €14m wouldn’t be outrageous, although I’m sure if we do go for him Furlani will try to keep the fee as low as possible. Either way, I would imagine his salary won’t be too high so it seems like a good option all around for Milan.

  2. Few weeks probably too long. We would end up with cabral at thr deadline. Unless we submit official offer to them this month. Selling players should be treated separately imo.

  3. Go over budget, fix it later, secure the player, sell the others after. better than risking loosing out on a target that can reinforce the team for a decade

  4. Please give Colombo the chance he deserves.
    He is also good in the air, strong physic and technically good

    Just watch his highlights v Madrid, lots of good hold up play and lay offs. He also has a cannon of a left foot.
    He’s a big guy who is just growing into his frame
