Fabrizio Romano gives take on Milan being linked to €38m Chelsea signing

By Oliver Fisher -

Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that AC Milan were interested in Chelsea defender Benoit Badiashile during the January window and addressed rumours that they could try again in the summer.

Badiashile was signed from Monaco by Chelsea in January 2023 for €38m but the 23-year-old has not really hit the ground running, having been one of many players there to battle injury problems.

Reports have suggested that the centre-back could be one of the players that the Blues offload before the start of next season to raise funds both in order to ease their financial pressures and also to free space for more incomings.

Milan were linked with Badiashile multiple times in the build-up to the January window when they were looking to ease their defensive emergency, and then again in February his name was mentioned as an option.

Speaking in his Daily Briefing column, Romano addressed the speculation that Milan may look to try again for the Frenchman.

“We’re again seeing reports of AC Milan targeting Chelsea defender Benoit Badiashile. AC Milan were interested in January, but there’s no decision yet on what they will do in the summer,” he said.

“It’s still early for AC Milan summer plans apart from decision already made to bring in a new important striker. Also Chelsea have not made any decision on Badiashile so far. We have to see in the summer for this, nothing is really happening now.”

  1. Take all the Chelsea misfits. Chelsea recruits very well and then ruins them once they arrive. Lots there to benefit from on the cheap.

  2. He is absentminded and he is the worst of the worst.he deserves nothing.
    Any one who birings him to acmilan is the silent enemy of acmilan

  3. Lets do another Chelsea raid in the summer: Gallagher, Carney, Reece James etc. Plenty of good players for our squad

  4. Yeah, Badiashile’s not coming to Milan
    -a- very injury prone player
    -b- high salary player

    I don’t think any teams would spend even half the money that Chelsea spent to get him, so I doubt Chelsea plan is to sell him now (loan at most)

    The only ones we can get from Chelsea are players with lower salaries that are not established as first-team and want a bigger role.

    Gallagher, Reece James and Carney are definitely not it.
