Mediaset: Milan-Torino swap deal moves closer as Messias softens stance

By Oliver Fisher -

The idea of a swap deal between AC Milan and Torino is gathering steam because Junior Messias is tempted to make the move, a report claims.

According to SportMediaset (via MilanNews), Milan and Torino are in talks over a potential exchange deal which would involve Messias heading to Turin and Wilfried Singo coming the other way.

The Brazilian forward was putting up a bit of resistance, but he is increasingly realising that if he stays with the Rossoneri into next season he risks getting very little playing time.

Christian Pulisic has already arrived for the right wing role and new offensive additions are expected shortly, in addition to the presence of Alexis Saelemaekers who Stefano Pioli has often trusted more in big games.

Therefore, the former Crotone man could soon give his approval to the operation and that would allow Milan to get a right-back who can challenge Davide Calabria for a starting spot.

    1. Dest is better technically, Singo can’t cross. But physically he is a beast. Since he is 22 I guess he can still learn crossing.

  1. If Singo and Musah arrive then Ill give 7/10 rating for this transfer window. 8 if we can somehow get Chukwueze or a decent ST like Balogun.

    Not really any higher given the fact that we lost Fratezzi and over all Thuram to our biggest rivals. But we are hopefully going in right directions that doesnt involve 6th spot or even relegation 🤣

    1. I would have thought a RW and striker were the main priorities.
      I can’t understand why we never address these positions!!!!!

      (and yes Pulisic can play on right but he prefers LW or as a 10, we still need a real RW like Chukweze)

      1. He himself says he prefers the right wing! and is his best position along with cam, LW was where chelsea choose to play him

        1. He’s right footed so Pioli probably won’t play him on the right. He wants his wingers to cut in and shoot/cross with their dominant foot.

          And Pioli doesn’t know how to adapt very well.

  2. Indeed, Bravo to Junior.
    What an achievement for him to have won a league title and got to CL semi final.
    The man has worked hard all his life an earned everything he got.
    He has been a good squad member for Milan.

    Hope he has a great future with Torino and maybe cap it all off with a Brazil Cap.

    What a Movie his life story would make!

    1. Also giving us double digits in goals in his time and seemingly allowing us to get the money invested in his transfer fee back.

  3. Messias storylife is very inspiring. From normal worker that plays serie D to scoring in Champions League. Thank you Messias, may u save some money because u start football late KEK

  4. I always have loved his story of modest beginnings. I think Torino will be best for him and he will do well there and play more. I will still try to watch Torino when I can.

  5. Thank you Messias. Enjoy Torino perfect club for him. He will get a new contract with term something we would not offer him anyways so best he leaves where he can start and we get a young exciting player (with potential to develop) with starting experience, size, speed and offensive ability back in return. Great deal if this goes through.
