GdS: Lecce midfielder linked with Milan to potentially replace Krunic

By Euan Burns -

Lecce midfielder Morten Hjulmand has been linked with a move to AC Milan to act as a potential replacement for Rade Krunic, a report claims.

As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Radio Rossonera), there is a genuine chance that Krunic could be on the move with Fenerbahce showing serious interest.

The Turkish club would like to sign the Bosnian for around €3-5 million, but Milan would like €10-15m so there is some work to do.

Fenerbahce have offered him a contract that would see him earn more than he does at Milan, and he has said yes. If he leaves, along with Charles De Ketelaere and Yacine Adli, Milan want one player to fully complete the midfield.

That player could be Lecce’s Hjulmand. He has been linked in the past and the Salentini asked for €20m. If they get the fee they want for Krunic, that could be a possible deal.

  1. You know it makes…..

    Sell an established player so you can sign another player.

    Is anyone following the money here because this is starting to look very dodgy.

      1. Stats?

        What are stats?

        Does this other guy have 80 speed or something in FIFA?

        Surely one important stat is – Krunic actually plays for the team?

        If there is something dodgy going on (and there almost certainly is when agents are earning more money than players and most clubs are insolvent) then the media and fans probably won’t notice because they’ll be so mesmerised by all of the wonderful transfer activity.

        1. I don’t understand your point. We shouldn’t upgrade becasue of some intangible attribute Krunic possesses by way of being a current player? This makes no sense. If you’re saying that sporting business is in many ways dodgy….well duh, but this is not new. But there is clear upside from a sporting point of view of replacing Krunic with Hjalmund.

          1. Just for a second try and forget about football, forget about the transfer market, and think about your own workplace and what would happen if they changed 50% of the workforce at once?

            It takes office workers on average of about 6 months to settle into new jobs.

            These are elite athletes playing at the highest level imaginable where a split second will determine success and failure.

            Do you honestly not see that players being familiar with each other is not more important than any other statistics?

        2. Any comment about football that starts with “forget about football…” I think I’m going to ignore. Yes, it takes time to gel but to your other point these are elite athletes. It’s sport not rocket science. Run, pass, shoot and score. They can figure it out.

          1. Why is football different to anything else?

            You don’t get to be “elite” at anything with this level of turnover.

            If you took an elite race horse and changed trainers every few months it wouldn’t work.

          2. Top teams change players all the time like this. Deal with reality. You don’t get to be elite playing mediocre players and thinking they have potential.

          1. Exception not the rule.

            Last time Milan had this amount of turnover we finished 6th in 17/18 and most of our signings were a disaster including established stars like Bonucci.

            A large part of the Bonucci’s success has come from the stability of playing alongside the same players. That is a large part of most players’ sucesss.

      1. Well it’s not a conspiracy theory given how wealthy and dodgy agents are.

        The only question is how many people are involved.
