GdS: Milan look at an alternative amid arm-wrestle with Midtjylland for Onyedika

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are involved in a transfer tug of war with FC Midtjylland over midfielder Raphael Onyedika and are evaluating an alternative target, a report claims.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Midtjylland are asking for €10m in order to sell the 21-year-old and the current absolute minimum seems to be around €8m as a fixed amount, whereas Milan are offering €4-5m.

As usual, bonuses could at least partially bring the two clubs closer but the decisive days are expected to be towards the end of the market when the parties will resume talks and understand if there is room to close.

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have just over €5m left, because the €50m made available at the beginning of the market were largely absorbed by the purchase of Charles De Ketelaere, to which the permanent deals for Alessio Florenzi and Junior Messias must be added while not much liquidity came from the sales of Leo Duarte, Samu Castillejo and Alessandro Plizzari.

The small remaining budget has been allocated to the midfield, and that is why such a bid has been sent to Midtjylland. For now the words of the Danish club’s leadership (about wanting to keep the player) are just normal declarations.

In the background Jean Onana remains an option, as the 22-year-old from Bordeaux is available for a similar amount to that requested for Onyedika.

  1. Shocking that a club just wouldn’t just give us a player for half his worth when he’s under contract with them for another 4 season because we asked for him LOL. Move on to Onana pls.

    1. More shocking to hear italy champion transfer budget below 50m euro hahahaha. If 50m euro we still have 10m euro even after counting junior & florenzi activation

      1. Could not agree more. But every time I criticize ownership for this Embarrassing budget I get attacked and get called a non-Milan fan or doom and gloom lol. Shame. Feel bad for M&M – very difficult to build and sustain a winner on such a small budget. They have worked miracles thus far but the point is they really shouldn’t have to. But it is what it is.

        1. The problem is you just don’t realize how much money 50 million is. The world of football has gone completely mad over the last few years and many teams have debts they can’t control anymore. With interest rates going up, just be happy that our team can still spend 50 million without having to sell players. No other Italian team had a bigger net budget this summer. The other teams will only see their financial situation get worse in the coming years. Thanks to our ownership we are the Italian team with the brightest future.

          1. You don’t base net spend on one transfer window like the summer lol. That’s highly convenient to your argument friend. It’s based on the year – 2022. Juve have a net spend of 93M for 2022 thus far. You must include the purchases of Vlahovic and Zakaria in Janaury of 2022. Juve spend 192M on players in 2022 thus far. Vlahovic (70M) Chiesa (40M) Zakaria (5M) Bremer(50M) Kostic (17M) Cambiasso (10M) etc…total approx 192M. Sales of De Ligt (70M) Demrial (22M) and Mandragora (9M) total approx 99M. Net spend for 2022 is approx. 93M. So NO we are the highest spending Italian team for 2022 with a net spend of less than 30M. De Ketelare (35M) Messias (4.5) and Florenzi (3M) for a total of 42.5M. However, we sold in 2022 – Durante (2M), Hauge (11M) ; Tsadjoit (1M) and Plizzari (250K) for a total of 13.25 approx. 42.5M – 13.25M = 29.25M net spend (approximately). So let’s not buy in this fake narrative that we are the highest spending team in Italy LOL. Not sure about you friend but 30M transfer budget won’t get us back to winning CL and will barely keep us fighting for the title. Big decisions are ahead. When all these young players develop into stars we need to start paying them market value or they will get it elsewhere. Donnaruma and Kessie were first. Leao, Benny could be next…

        2. juro agree elliot is not doing any favour to milan for the past years but i blame(i know u didnt take my name just mentioning) those fans who are in the whole of negativity and blame red bird who hasnt even set foot on milan like thats dumb honestly
