Fassone reveals the truth about Aubameyang, Morata and Ronaldo

By Isak Möller -

During tonight’s show on SportItalia, former AC Milan CEO Marco Fassone spoke about his first transfer window with the Rossoneri, focusing on a few names that they were linked to. 

Andre Silva: “We knew that an important attacker was needed. We dedicated May and June to signing a centre-forward but we couldn’t close a deal. We wanted to sign Andre Silva to put him under the guidance of a great striker.”

On Aubameyang: “He was always a target of Mirabelli. It is difficult, however, to work with German teams. The request was higher than his actual value.”

On Morata and Ronaldo: Morata? The distance was significant. Ronaldo? The president wanted him but the numbers made the deal inadvisable. Ronaldo was available to evaluate the opportunity, Milan are a remarkable club.”

During the evening, Fassone also handed out a fair share of criticism to former owner Yonghong Li, who failed to repay the loan to Elliott Management. You can read that part of the interview here.
