CorSera: Atalanta tempted by Milan’s Saelemaekers stance – the details

By Ben Dixon -

This summer is one of change, and for change to happen at the best level possible, AC Milan need funds. One way they are looking to bolster their budget is the sale of Alexis Saelemaekers, and another Serie A club have taken interest in him.

Following a good season with Bologna, there is an interest in Saelemaekers’ services. However, one club without an interest in the winger is his parent club – Milan. In fact, the Rossoneri have been planning his departure for 12 months now, which is why the buy clause was inserted in his loan deal.

For a prolonged period, it seemed that the Belgian could stay in Bologna next season, under the tutorship of Thiago Motta, but with the Italian coach leaving the club, they opted against activating the buy clause.

However, Motta’s interest in the winger is still present, and he could look to bring him to Juventus, where he is looking to reshape their playing squad.

Today, it has come to light that another club is interested in the Belgian, and it is Atalanta. According to the Bergamo branch of Corriere della Sera (via Milan News), the winger does not want to stay with the Diavolo and would cost €12 million for La Dea to bring him to the club.

The Bergamese outfit were linked with Daniel Maldini last night, and the recent closing of the Charles De Ketelaere was stated as a reason why negotiations for the Italian may not have begun yet, and the same could apply with Saelemaekers.

        1. Clubs don’t buy players while so severely injured as there is no guarantees that they will be back to their former self. Look at what happened to Caldara he also was deemed a huge talent before his injuries. Scalvini will not be bought by anyone before January and most likely at the earliest next summer so he has been tested continually for the remainder of the season.
          I would nevertheless have loved that we bought him before his injury but he most likely would cost 60-70 mil had it not been the case.

  1. I’m not saying it will happen, but imagine if Atalanta went out next season with Salesmaekers and Maldini flanking CDK and Scammaca and it worked 😬😬😬😬
