CorSport: Real Betis send offer to Milan winger Saelemaekers – the situation

By Isak Möller -

Alexis Saelemaekers has been linked with a departure since the start of the summer but there have not been any obvious suitors for the Belgian. However, recently the AC Milan winger received an offer from Spain. 

Saelemaekers is one of four right-wingers in the Milan squad currently, along with Samuel Chukwueze, Christian Pulisic and Luka Romero, and he’s not expected to get much playing time this season. Therefore, he could leave the Rossoneri.

According to today’s edition of Corriere Dello Sport (see photo below), Saelemaekers could indeed leave Milan this summer and Real Betis sent him a contract offer yesterday. An offer that the Belgian now will evaluate along with Milan, having trained separately at Milanello in the last few days.

Interestingly enough, Milan published the player photos on their website today and there’s no picture for Saelemaekers. The other players that don’t have a photo are Fode Ballo-Toure, Mattia Caldara and Divock Origi, which says a lot.

  1. He is a useful back up player, but with all the new players it will be unfair to expect him to be 4th in line for the RW position. I would think maybe a loan move would be a sensible choice as well.

  2. I think it is a mistake as it seems we dont have any defensive capabilities on the right wind right now. He was great as second defending midfield on the right covering all the space. Who is going to do it now? Chukwu? Pulisic? Romero?

  3. When work-rate ain’t enough. Tbh, I like the way Saele helps defense. His unique characteristics is needed by Milan, but it isn’t fair to place him 4th in the pecking order.

  4. Please don’t sale him. we need his defensive skills, flexibility, and unpredictability. he can be played in LW, RW, RM, LM, AM, even RB or LB. can score. yes he’s not the best at those position but he’ll be there to be great backup.
