GdS: Leao no longer unsellable – Milan weigh up €30m Serie A winger as replacement

By Oliver Fisher -

Rafael Leao is no longer considered unsellable by AC Milan and his replacement could arrive from Sampdoria, according to a report.

This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) writes that Mikkel Damsgaard is the ‘new name’ for the Milan attack but he is not new to the scouting department, who have been following him for some time. The 20-year-old has shown his quality and potential both with Sampdoria shirt and now with the Danish national team at Euro 2020.

Massimo Ferrero, Sampdoria’s president, has already set a €30m asking price but ultimately the fee he ends up receiving – if he sells Damsgaard – will be dictated by the market. Many clubs have already knocked on Sampdoria’s door to ask for information, and Milan are there observing the situation.

If Leao’s departure were to materialise then a concrete pursuit of the Dane is expected given his ability to function as an attacking ‘wild card’ of sorts. Even though he is primarily a left winger, he can also play as a playmaker or on the right.

    We have Hauge ffs. Damsgaard is good but when we have Hauge who has enough quality to displace Rebic at the top then why tf are we wasting Leao’s money on a position we already stacked at. Rebic would be the first choice and Hauge deputy.

    Spend Leao’s money on someone like Calhanoglu’s replacement or maybe a young striker

      Agree 100%. Left wing is already covered even after Leao is sold. The biggest issue is the right wing and that’s where we need a Big Player.

      Sell Leao – buy Ikone for RW. Sell Castillejo so we don’t have to watch him ever again. If there is no money for a top AMC, one experienced with Diaz there would be enough.

        Agree. IF we sell Leao we should use the money in an area of need like RW or now ACM. Buy Ikone and start Diaz and buy Adil as his backup (and He can also backup RW as well after Salemaekers) Krunic is still with us (unfortunately) and Pioli loves him and has played ACM before so he could also backup Diaz (although I personally thinks he’s stinks and should be sold lol). Point is use the $$ for something else. LW is not a need. Rebic is there and play give Hauge a fkn chance.

    ELLIOT doesnt use their money much but when they do its totally dumb, sell leao to buy daamsgard ? 😀 When we have Hauge ??? Funny guys there… Sell Leao and with that money buy Kamara or someone to build depth of midfield…
