CorSera: Maldini and Massara still believe Milan can sign Sanches

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara still believe that the club can sign Renato Sanches from Lille this weekend, a report claims.

As has been reported by Tuttosport (via Milan News), the Rossoneri are effectively waiting on the sidelines to see if they can add the Portuguese midfielder to their ranks.

Milan already have a fee agreed with the Ligue 1 side and have done for some time. The issue is that Sanches knows about the interest from Paris Saint Germain and is holding out for the Ligue 1 champions to make an approach.

They have not actually made an official approach for him yet but have been threatening to do so for many weeks.

Milan can’t compete with PSG when it comes to personal terms for the former Bayern Munich midfielder which is why they effectively have to wait until PSG end their interest before they can sign the player from Lille.

    1. looks like Wijnaldum will leave PSG and ahead to Roma soon, and then I believe they get Sanchez. I hope M&M focus more on the Aston Villa prospect.

    1. Maldini and Massara have move on.

      But Media and Mendes have not move on.

      Media make the story to generate income from Milanisti. Mendes push the story to get better deal from P$G.

  1. This was exactly the same attitude he put up years back when Milan wanted to sign him too, He choosed premier league club over Milan. I’m tired of hearing and reading about this guy and everything that concerns him.

  2. Suppose Milan buy Sanches or other midfielder, Milan will have 28 players but only 24 of them can be registered at UCL squad.

    Calabri, Gabbia, and Pobega have guaranteed spots as they are the only players who can fill the 4 academy product quota (1 slot remain).

    Mirante, Florenzi, Tonali, and Bennacer also have guaranteed spots as they are the only players who can fill the 4 association homegrown quota (none remain).

    But of the remaining 21 players (Maignan, Tatarusanu, Tomori, Kalulu, Kjaer, Theo, Balo-Toure, Krunic, Bakayoko, Sanches/new midfielder, Adli, Diaz, CDK, Saelemaekers, Messias, Leao, Rebic, Ibrahimovic, Origi, Giroud, and Lazetic), only 17 can be registered in the non-homegrown quota.

    Who are the 4 non-homegrown players you think should be excluded from the Champions League squad?

    Nb: due to injury, Ibrahimovic can be excluded for the first half of the season, but at the second half of the season he will already return.

    1. OMG…I miscounted… Bennacer was 20 years old based on birth year when he first arrive in Italy… he is not homegrown… which means Milan is currently over the homegrown limit by 4…

  3. Milan want to pay the dude 3.2m and sign him for 5 years, it is freakingly unfair!!!!!!!!

    PSG is ready to offer him 4.5m so put yourself in his shoes, Milan always trying to cheat everyone they are dealing with for their own Pocket, if we don’t have the funds for Sanchez then let’s move to people who we can sign with 3.2m as salary……Sanchez is a very good player, far more technical than all the midfeilders we have and very strong on the ball, good things are expensive so no one should blame the dude
