Journalist claims Milan have offered €17m for Porto winger as €8m sale is expected

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are expected to sell Samu Castillejo and they have submitted an offer for his potential replacement, it is claimed.

According to journalist KeryNews, Milan’s offer for Jesus ‘Tecatito’ Corona has arrived on the desk of Porto, and it is a bid worth €10m plus €7m in bonuses that would be paid at the end of the season.

The acceleration has come from the Rossoneri management because Getafe are going for Samu Castillejo, who would cost the LaLiga side €8m that would essentially be fully reinvested in the 28-year-old Mexico international.

Some notable movement could therefore occur in the final few days of the summer transfer window as Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara look to get the attack in place for head coach Stefano Pioli. One in one out for the right wing position has been talked about for weeks, but could now become a reality.

    Maybe I’m wrong but looks like Milan will have only Diaz for AMC role, regardless all other players bought without starter AMC I’m not very optimistic about this season, especially in the second part when the number of games starts to weight the players.

    1. Dos Santos says:

      I think Adli will come as back up for Diaz.

      1. Alek says:

        Maybe there is potential in Adli and Diaz but in this moment nor Adli or Diaz can’t take Milan to the next level

  2. Savicevic says:

    we should wait. If corona and silva will come, the team will be very competitive. of course, it may be the other way around, for the case when no one finally arrives

  3. Kourosh says:

    If he’s going to be the successor to Castillejo and an attacking midfielder is going to be signed regardless, then fabulous, but if he’s the last addition then we are going to miss on a top 4 spot.

    A quality attacking midfielder is a must.

    LOL. 17M for Corona?? He’s average at best. Sign Ikone for that kind of $$. Younger, faster, more dynamic and more upside and re-sale value….seems like this is a panic buy. What happened to Ziyech lol. Weren’t we going to get him last minute?? Stop this garbage. Sign Yacine and sell Kessie (if he doesn’t resign like now) and replace him with Kamara. Sell Romagnoli too so we don’t lose him (like Gigio, Hakan and probably now Kessie) for nothing too…Yacine, Kamara and Ikone please.

    1. Juro says:

      Apologies not “average” – he’s solid. But for 17M (which for us is a huge amount) I’d rather a player younger with more upside and resale value…like Ikone IMO

    2. Kourosh says:

      I mean, he is the most valuable player in the Portuguese league according to transfermarkt.

  5. Savo Calcio says:

    17m???? What???? Just get Zaccagni for way less please.

    So many people in the comments seem to forget that what we have right now in Corona’s position is Saelemaekers and Castillejo, I don’t understand who cannot see Corona as an improvement over that. Corona was part of a team that reached the quarter finals of the last Champions league, taking out Juventus and quite frankly competing against Chelsea better than Real Madrid did in the semifinals, and last time I checked that’s more than 90% of Milan’s current team have achieved in Europe in their career. Also he’s not just any random player, he’s considered by the club one of their best players; usually Porto sell these players for waaaay higher than 17M, but his contract is about to expire.
