CorTorino: Roma and Atalanta lead the charge for Belotti as Milan’s interest cools – the reason

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are now a distant idea for Andrea Belotti with regards to being a possible destination, according to a report.

According to this morning’s edition of il Corriere di Torino (via MilanNews), Torino will do everything to convince Belotti to renew his contract, but an exit in the upcoming summer transfer window cannot be ruled out given that his current deal expires in June 2022. Milan have been repeatedly mentioned as a potential destination for Belotti over the last four years now, but in truth he has never really been close to arriving at San Siro.

The hypothesis of joining his boyhood club Milan is now further away because the Rossoneri have decided to move for Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud instead, but Roma and Atalanta are still in the running. That latter are thinking of the Italy international in the event of the sale of Duvan Zapata, while the former could lose Edin Dzeko.

    Belotti seems like the perfect fit for this team, someone who would have plenty of gametime without the pressure in the first year and then could take on the #9 role for future years. Really surprised now that he’s available that Milan aren’t all over this, maybe they’ve been priced out?

    Similar story with Kristoff Ajer of Celtic; been rumoured for years but now, when it makes most sense and the value would be best, he’s not on the radar at all.

      I agree with you on this. I think he would be the best striker option available when factoring in quality, age & price. Now is the perfect time to get him

      Milan want an experienced (European experience) striker who is physically similar to Ibrahimovic. Belotti is a different kind of player.
