CM: Florenzi turns around early difficulties and is beginning to earn a permanent Milan move

By Oliver Fisher -

Alessandro Florenzi did not have the easiest start to life as an AC Milan player following his loan move from Roma, but now he is settling in well.

According to Calciomercato.com, Florenzi did not find things easy at first having had two difficult loan spells at Valencia and PSG to precede the journey north to Milan, but the feeling is that the 30-year-old is now starting to show what he can bring to the team both on the field from a performance point of view but also as a leader in the dressing roon.

Due to Calabria’s injury and the recent Covid-19 outbreak that forced Kalulu into the centre-back role, Florenzi has played every game since November 20 and he scored his first goal for the club against Empoli with a sweet free-kick in the match before the Christmas break.

He arrived in the summer on a €1m paid loan but with the intention of remaining permanently as Milan agreed an option to buy of €4.5m with Roma. The management are satisfied with the player’s performance, as is Pioli, and while a final decision on buying him outright won’t be made until the spring the signs are good.

    I am liking Florenzi’s impact in Milan. There are a few things he could improve both in attack and defense, but his experience is valuable. If he keeps up his form, I think 4.5M to buy is a great deal.

    1. Stam says:

      He will not be improving as he will pmbe past 30 and with Calabria return will be on bench

      How do you want to improve squad if we spend (4,5 plus his 3m salary) a lot on bench players

      1. bb says:

        Look at the bench of Juve, Napoli and especially Inter. That’s why we didn’t win the Scudetto last year. The players on the bench matter.

        Milan’s bench is faaaar behind the competitors’.

        That is how you improve the team. You can’t have substitues that can’t play an important match, the whole point is having 25 players that are good, not 11 and fill with cheap players. This isn’t football manager, it works only there. 😀

        1. Stam says:

          We have 2 greats as RB. We can add primavera youth for depth.
          Inter won in huge part thanks to quality players, the only place they had depth was defence.
          Next season goal should be advancing from group stage. We can sacrifice coppa italia.
          But this summer we beed every bit of cash to finally secure a striker.

    He has been great.Steady,hard working, and smart.Must be kept!!

    4.5m for a first team quality player. No brainer. 5 years contract. He will still be good around 35 :Þ .

  4. Milan NYC says:

    Sign! Great crosses, clever defending, and a good free kick taker. Plus we’ll need depth at RB if Kalulu ends up being a solution at CB for the long term.

  5. crorossonero says:

    Cheap and a great player with great personality. No brainer to sign him for under 5M so we can compete in 3 competitions next year.

  6. Nelli says:

    Milan need experience, motivated players who don’t mind playing a back up role. Florenzi give Pioli tactical flexibility as he’s also a WB. Now Milan just need to swap Samu for another quality RW and Milan’s right side will be set for the first time in forever.
