CM: Pioli decides Hauge is surplus to requirements – talks with Eintracht Frankfurt continue

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are likely to sell Jens Petter Hauge this summer but have rejected a first offer from Eintracht Frankfurt, according to a report.

Calciomercato.com writes that Hauge now seems certain to leave the Rossoneri after less than a year as Stefano Pioli does not seem willing to count on him next season, which is why Maldini and Massara have been transparent with his agent and have put forward the idea of a permanent sale.

It is a solution that makes all parties happy because the player wants to play, the agent wants his client to be happy while Milan are likely to net a good capital gain from the operation too. Several requests for Hauge have arrived and while both Udinese and Torino both tried, the player’s preference has always been a move to Germany.

Eintracht Frankfurt have offered €8m plus variable bonuses, to reach a maximum of €12m, but this was rejected by Milan who would only sell for €14-15m without adding bonuses. The talks go on, and the feeling is that it can be closed by raising the fixed part by a few million.

    😂 😂 😂 Maybe Maignan will be used on the wings when Rebic and Leao are out. We can’t rule that one out with Pioli in charge

    At least keep him in the squad… And after 2-3 months, when eliot sack pioli, we can still enjoy our golden boy

      I have a gut feeling that Pioli will be sacked in the middle of the new season.

      It would be super stupid to sell Hauge. How ever limited his playing time was, he showed some great talent. At least give him one more season and more playing time after he has settled down with the new team, new league and new country.

      1. milanfansfromchina says:

        Besides, Rebic was not super hot last season and played pretty bad in EURO 2020. He most likely won’t have a great start in the new season due to the EURO 2020, basing on the past experience: players drop their forms after a big international tournament. What then the management will do if they decide to sell Hauge now?

        6 goals in Limited game time..this is stupidity

  3. Patinho says:

    The very fact that Krunic isn’t mentioned anywhere in the sales department is worrying me greatly. Completely against the continued leadership of Pioli as coach.

    1. Zymotix says:

      To be honest, Milan under pioli is disaster…. pioli wants to keep krunic for the Next season, play againts Bayern Munich or man. City and krunic is On the field with castillejo … can imagine that game Will be???. poor Milan

      1. micah97 says:

        Pioli will not reach the end of next year..so selling our talents off to keep Krunic and Castillejo..is just crazy

    pioli is sentimentally coach…
    have been unfairly to hauge….
    he acted unfairly big two, one ruled out hauge for uefa league and now put huge for a surplus

    if you have a majority squad with skillfull or top player, that is the truly meaning of surplus.

    as you know, hauge is bringing a big enthusiasm that milan will investing for young and talented player.
    but now the enthusiasm was gone

    they said milan will orienting with the process not the instant way.
    but that’s all bullshit gimmick.

    pioli is absolutely a man with no honor
    he forgotten that hauge save his face and faith with a goal versus sampdoria.

    i hope hauge will finding a club that can suits him perfectly.
    a place that he can grow up well and also well appreciated for young talent.

    sorry to say, milan is not the club that have hauge material.
    milan took a very long backward movement…..

    1. SheerWill96 says:

      Without that goal against Sampdoria we probably won’t be in the champions league now. 🤦🏾‍♂️

      1. milanfansfromchina says:

        So bloody true!

        Don’t forget it was Hauge who brought Milan to group top in EL. Then the ingratitude Pioli dropped Hauge out the EL list and then crashed out of the EL knockout stage! What a bastard behavour of a coach!

  5. Adi says:

    Bottom line Pioli is really sux…he is not world class calibre. His choices and selections are dubious and that’s what actually make Milan into more troubles almost loosing the CL place. I’m almost certain he won’t survive 3mths into the start of the seasons. Let’s just hope it’s not too late for Milan before getting a more capable manager.

  6. Joe101 says:

    the best part is that Pioli is likely to be out of the club within the first half of the season…..
    great business out there
    but maybe he can take both of his boyfriends with him – Samu and Krunic …and live happily ever after

  7. Jan Cuuk says:

    You play 3 competitions and you sound like surplus is bad? You really need all surplus you had to face 3 competitions. And dont forget you have to deal with covid19 test every match. Big mistake if you think you have enough depth.

    And the way you treat krunic better than hauge. remember the howler krunic made during match against celtic 4-2. And Look how hauge score a goal like that in such a young age to turn the game around. Come on Pioli. It is an obvious choice

  8. micah97 says:

    We have to fire Pioli..he was wrong about Paqueta as well….Now the guy is shining…he wants Pobega to be sold to keep Krunic and Casti….bring in a better coach..Joachim Low is available.

    I hope Pioli gets cancer and dies.
