Di Marzio: Fernandez sends ultimatum to Milan amid increase of €18m clause

By Isak Möller -

Enzo Fernandez is eager to join AC Milan but has made it known that he will only wait until the end of the week. In addition, there is a factor relating to the price that the Rossoneri must consider, a report claims. 

As the signing of Renato Sanches remains uncertain, given the interest of Paris Saint-Germain, Milan are also monitoring other solutions on the market and Fernandez is one of them. The River Plate midfielder, aged 21, is ready for the big leap.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Fernandez has told Milan that he will wait until the end of the week, keen on joining the San Siro side. After that, he will give his availability to other teams as Wolves and Benfica also are very interested.

Behind this ultimatum is the midfielder’s release clause, which is currently set at €18m. On Monday, however, it will increase to €23.5m and that’s why the player is rushing the matter. It remains to be seen if the Rossoneri will move forward with their interest.

  1. I mean take this boy and dont look behind is release clause is the same amount we have offered Lille for R.Sanches and with psg in the race now must likely need to offer 25m to lille sell R.Sanches to us!

  2. much bettern then renato in 10month, i cannot understand milans behaviour….we were always the club with the cool sinings and inter with the flops, this has changend to 100%
    from Higuain, Mandzukic to Baka a horrible long storry of incompentence.
    I live in Salzburg and my biggest love AC MILAN bacame compared to RB Salzburg from Austrian League!! a big joke.
    They have now taken more then 500mio from transfers in 6years. New Stadium, much higher credit rating, better scouting…..i guess everything is better but just a few fans.

    1. Well you always miss some. What I don’t understand is how can you spend your season scouting players, talking with them, agreeing with some they will join and then the owner doesn’t secure that. I’ve already said, they could have invested only 150M this season and we would get a top team which can be upgraded for 50M per season. But that isn’t their goal, it is exactly like you wrote, take money in from transfers and pay out dividends.

      1. Pay out dividends? To whom? Milan is not a publicly listed company, that’s not how they are set up. You have proven once again that you are out of your depth and have no clue about the club’s finances. And what big money transfers out have they done since the days of Silvio selling Kaka and Shevchenko? Maybe Leao will be sold, who knows. Might not be the worst thing if the money is then wisely reinvested like Liverpool did with the windfall they got for Coutinho.
        It’s all well and good for fans to want more for their team, but you can’t live in a fantasy world. Where would Milan get 150M? They lost that much over the previous two seasons and you can’t spend what you don’t have. Milan is already under a UEFA settlement agreement. They are being fairly or not scrutinized more than other sides. They are required to show that they will be able to balance the books, which will unfortunately shape the transfer window. If income increases over time more can be spent, so patience will be required.

  3. Honestly with what Lille are wanting for Botman and Sanchez. F them. Get Fernandez and get Bremer (if we need a CB). Then get some free agents. Origi, Belotti, Dybala. Sounds like a smart plan to me but who knows with Redbird…. group seems like they suck so far.

  4. Mark my comment.
    Milan WON’T sign any wonderkids, any rising stars or any stars.
    Sanches is reportedly tired of Milan’s approach. There are no concrete steps. Botman? Same thing. Noa Lang, De Ketelaere.. Milan is only an expert in approaching players, when completing the contract, everything looks deadlocked.
    New ownership is not worth making excuses. If it is serious, the contract issue of Maldini et al should be able to be resolved in one day. The problem is in the absence of desire.
