AC Milan were excluded from the Europa League today after CAS ratified the Rossoneri’s agreement with UEFA. This has given the club more financial freedom on the transfer market as well as more time to break even. And it also represents good news for the outgoing market operations.
Sky Sport‘s transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio spoke on his daily show and elaborated on today’s developments and what effect it will have on the negotiations with PSG about the sale of Gianluigi Donnarumma.
“For the Milan directors, the UEFA agreement was a liberation. Milan are now not obligated to make a capital gain until June 30 and do not have to rush in negotiations for Donnarumma,” he said.
“Now the sale of Donnarumma is a choice of the club. If he does not renew this year, he will have a lower value next year. Milan will have to make wise choices in the next three years and start making capital gains, more calmly than yesterday.
“The negotiation for Donnarumma can now be conducted on Milan’s conditions, on different evaluations of the player, on the choice of Areola as the counterpart. Everything changes. This is why the Milan directors were satisfied,” Di Marzio added.
