CM: Origi to Saudi Arabia could be back on as Milan hope for trio of exits

By Oliver Fisher -

After making seven signings and with an eighth to follow soon in Yunus Musah, AC Milan are now looking to raise some money and/or free wages with some exits. confirm that Ante Rebic will fly to Turkey tomorrow to sign a two-year deal with Besiktas, and Junior Messias could also follow him in the next few days.

The Turkish club are pressing to get the green light from the Brazilian winger who has asked 48 hours to decide whether to accept a move to Istanbul or not.

Besiktas’ first offer to Milan for Messias was considered low but they have promised a raise, so much so that there is a good chance of reaching an agreement soon, at least between the clubs. Then the choice will be up to the player to decide.

Another player destined to leave Milan in the short term is Divock Origi. The Belgian centre-forward wanted to redeem his disastrous first season with the Rossoneri but both coach Pioli and the club made him understand he is not considered part of the plans.

As a result, he may now become open to the idea of moving to Saudi Arabia, something he rejected at the end of June when the situation was different. Milan cross their fingers, because a sale of would make room for a new signing in attack.

    1. No need big money, around 10m is enough. Please just leave for that amount. He isn’t needed but has big salary.

      Hopefully he will fine his mojo back at Saudi, if he trully go there.

  1. I remember when the journalists wrote how much money would be made from the transfers of these three. It was funny to me. In the end, everyone will go almost completely free, just to get rid of the burden of wages!

    1. Quite correct. It was laughable on the valuation that a lot of people had.

      Their salaries are such a problem that teams that can afford them don’t want them, and teams that want them can’t afford them.

      In the end, I’ll be happy when they are gone and replaced by someone better.

      Kind of the Arsenal way a few years ago, addition by subtraction.

  2. Selling Rebic for only 500k plus a potential bonus of 1.5M is not a good rerun at all. But it’s difficult to sell players so what can we do. Salary off the books is the best outcome. Crazy how his valuation has fallen off a cliff. Torino gave us a 4M valuation for Messias which IMO is excellent for a limited 32yr old player w zero resale value – but Pioli blocked the swap with Singo. That would have been excellent work by Furlani. Not good. I doubt the Turks offer anything close to that. Hope we can sell Origi for a solid amount.
