Marseille president confirms Milan target will leave for free in the summer

By Isak Möller -

After making just one signing during the January window, AC Milan are expected to make some more moves in the summer. A few names have been mentioned quite a lot and one of them is Boubacar Kamara. 

Kamara is expected to leave Marseille at the end of the season as his contract will expire then. And as Franck Kessie is leaving Milan, the young Frenchman has been linked with a move to the Rossoneri.

In December, Calciomercato.com reported that Milan are monitoring the situation of Kamara, given that he will be able to arrive for free. This was confirmed by Marseille’s president Pablo Longoria in an interview with La Provance (via MilanLive).

“I take on my responsibilities, I have been here for a year and a half. To lose a player because of an expiring contract, especially one of your best and one of the most valuable in the squad, is always a failure,” he stated.

It remains to be seen if Milan will continue to pursue the player or if they will focus solely on bringing in Renato Sanches, who has been heavily linked with the club lately. The upcoming weeks should provide more clarity on that.

  1. Kamara is a direct replacement for Kessie. Plays the same role, drops back and acts as a CB when Theo charges forward. Perfect signing and he’s FREE. This should be a no-brainer. I would love to get Sanches as well – and in a idea, work sign both players (they play different roles) but if I had to choose Kamara or Sanches (due to our limited budget) I would pick Kamara because he’s free and we could use the money ear-marked for Sanches on a proper RW or Striker – two areas that desperately need improvement. With either player we should all be happy, both would be excellent signings – but IMO if I had to chose Sanches and no RW or Kamara and a RW – then it’s Kamara and a new RW all the way.

  2. Just sign him and Renato in summer then play 4 33. Cut Bakayoko Loan and bring him back to Chelsea , sell krunic . So our midfield tonali,Bennacer,pobega,Renato ,kamara ,adili. 6 player compete for 3 spot . We don’t need AMF like Brahim anymore

  3. Sanchez is a good player with experience he has played for Portugal and he is highly rated,I think we must convince kessie to stay,it been a very difficult moment for him,so if he leaves get Sanchez please and also a good stricker we need goals,giroud is getting old same as zlatan.milan for ever,we will fight for the scudetto until the end,
