GdS: Playmaker holding out for Milan move but could resort to €25m transfer

By Isak Möller -

It’s not exactly a secret that Milan are looking for a playmaker on the market, as a result of Hakan Calhanoglu’s departure. Nikola Vlasic is one of the players on their radar and the Croatian is pushing for the move, a report claims. 

As reported by today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews), Vlasic is pushing for a move to Milan this summer, set to leave CSKA Moscow. However, the latter are unwilling to accept the conditions the Rossoneri have proposed.

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara would like the attacking midfielder on a paid loan with an option to buy. The Russian side, meanwhile, would like to cash in €25-30m immediately and this has made the negotiations very difficult.

The coming days will be decisive for the player as Zenit have put a €25m offer on the table, and an agreement seems to be close. Vlasic would like a move to Italy but if nothing changes soon, he could end up elsewhere.

  1. They decide not to give Hakan more money and to let him leave, and this is understandable but what I find very hard to understand is why they are not wiling to spend 20-30 mil surely they didn’t think that they will bring better player for free. To constantly rise the quality Milan need to sign players not to look for 1 year loan options for free. At this moment Milan did not rise the level of the team compared to last year. If Tonali didn’t love Milan then another talent would have been lost. And with Milan way of dealing with Brescia I can’t see other teams interested in loan deals with Milan.

  2. This is a tactic that is favorable to milan so if the player preforms they can be signed, it’s no secret milan has suffered in the transfer market in previous years when they buy a player outright take for example andre silva, krzysztof piatek,bonucci to say a few and in the end take fikayo tomori whole transfer into consideration and see my point

    1. I agree, but it can never be 100% perfect market, even with clever buying sometimes simply the player can’t adjust. They don’t want to spend 6mil for Jorge but asking for some Liepzig player on loan and some other target around 15 mil. And Chelsea made mistake and Real won’t make the same one with Diaz, so temas will learn and Tomori was the last deal of a kind.

  3. This is the most stupid team and management I have ever seen. You can’t spend on better player, then why let go of hakan? This is disgusting if Milan end up not signing either Sabitzer or vlacsic it’s a failed season for them.

  4. It is very painful the truth is we have to spend money the champions league is a different ball game entirely yo me this is not an improved team.

  5. Every club’s trying to cut down costs. We employed pioli and almost 99% here feels it’s not a good decision but he proves us all wrong. Let the management do their job. They know exactly how much we can spend….all am after is result. Be rest assured Milan financial book is currently in the good standing and this is also a big achievement by the management.

  6. The management are failing. Champions league is not europa league we need a quality attacking midfielder to complete with the best teams in the world. Don’t say the management are doing their work.. they must sign a quality player

  7. I’m getting tired of commenting on Milan’s mercato.

    Either they sign anymore players is non of my business, but the team must lift scudetto this season and do very well in the champions league.


  8. Elliot management think football is hedge fund.

    Release the damn cash and buy a Quality RW, ST and a Solid AM.

    If our performance against Nice was the best the team could offer, then I’m really sorry because it would have been better not to qualify for champions league than to go there and disgrace themselves
