CorSport: Cairo finalises Buongiorno price as Milan lose ground in the race

By Ben Dixon -

It seems that a move for Alessandro Buongiorno in the upcoming mercato may be becoming more unlikely for AC Milan after a report stated that his price for the summer has been set by Urbano Cairo. 

In the January mercato, Milan were infatuated with the idea of bringing Buongiorno to the club and even offered the young defender a contract to join the club. However, the youngster never ended up moving, even if he did not reject the contract himself.

The reasoning for this was made clear as captain and someone who owes a lot to the club, he would not force a move away from Torino, instead, if the Rossoneri made a bid that matched the figure demanded by Urbano Cairo, it could be revisited.

Since then, the club have been intertwined with rumours about the central defender, but as the summer mercato has approached, his value has only risen, and Cairo has taken him on and off the market, and now Corriere dello Sport (via Milan News) suggests it will cost €45 million between fixed costs and bonuses.

Napoli currently leads the race, and reports in recent weeks have suggested that Milan may be looking in alternate directions. Furthermore, the report suggests Mats Hummels has also been an idea proposed by Napoli, and he is another player who has been tempting the Diavolo.

  1. He isn’t even a starter for Italy why the huge price tag. 35 should be his fair value. He put a price of 100 on belotti and now teams don’t even want to have him for 5.

  2. So if write click and bait the comment automatically doesn’t get posted, a?

    You suck sempremilan. Nazis lvl censorship imao

    1. It’s the crap hosting they use. They’re hosted on cloudflare servers. If they went with GoDaddy, they’d avoid this issue.

  3. Napoli building their team good for next season. Rafa Marin, and Buongiorno next. That’s the thing in having motivated and winning oriented manager (or is it coach).

    1. It has nothing to do with the coach. They’re not in Europe so can throw around a lot of money and they don’t need to sign forwards. They’re in a position to spend €45 million on a defender, we’re not.

      1. Didn’t you read Conte required certain level of budget when he accepted Napoli? Can’t you see they prepare several strong CBs to fulfil Conte’s 3 back line up? That’s called a project.

    2. Yes yes yes , after failure in 1 years he will abandon that project in napoli like he did in spurs and all napoli signing CB for 352 will be wasted unless they hiring coach that use 352. It is not like napoli have big budget unless they sell kvara or osimhem first. Without playing at europe there is nothing much they can do in transfer market

      1. Only time will tell. Regarding their budget;

        ‘According to the report, Conte has been promised a €230m transfer budget, which probably includes the €130m Napoli plan to get from Victor Osimhen’s sale.’

  4. Milan management are a cheap bunch of idiots, bigheads, fools and cretins who enjoy making fools of themselves 25 hours each day …. OUT …. OUT ….
    HOW WE MISS THE GREAT MALDINI.

  5. Milan kept losing on and off the pitch (again)

    Another wholesale gamble signings incoming as it seems.

    Zirkzee’s agent seems to be giving discount to UTD also.

    Why our board members are the worst when it comes to negotiations?

  6. Milan is always looking for cheaper alternatives. Players are targeted for months only to lose and find cheaper options. repeat and repeat and repeat the same story just to stay relevant. stupid and poor. Many times they have disappointed the fans

    1. Relax we’ll come up with random players from French / South America just to them being loaned out here and there.

      1. 4-5 from Ligue 1 and one from South America. And we all know how long the south american will last in the roster/club.

  7. Buongiorno is not worth the money. Vastly overrated. We need a left-footed centerback and I think the most logical choice is Calafiori

      1. Calafiori is a starter in the Italy national and looks to have a great career ahead of him. Therefore Milan will not buy him. If only he was from France and costed 5M€…

      2. Buongiorno being left footed means it makes more sense for Milan then. But I definitely would prefer spending money on someone else. Calafiori is worth 35 while I wouldn’t pay more than 20 for Buongiorno

  8. Napoli can not possibly lead the race because they are about to sign Marin from Madrid.

    So where is Buongiorno really going?

  9. “Milan lose ground” lol. Were we ever in the race at a 40M plus price tag??? Keep dreaming. All fantasy. We are owned by Redbird. Never happen.

  10. Ask yourselves from the days of Lentine till date, how many Torino players have succeeded in Milan. Their standards are below CL players standard. Please Milan should be looking elsewhere and stop wasting time.

  11. They’ve also sold Koulibaly, Kim Min-Jae, and now Di Lorenzo is next… I wouldn’t trade either one for Buongiorno…
