CM: Milan receive €3m bid for full-back but Massara sends back firm response

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan defender Fode Ballo-Toure is attracting interest from Turkey but the club have made their stance clear, according to a report.

Mehmet Batuhan Ağır of Tv100 reported that Trabzonspor are keen on signing Ballo-Toure and added that the Turkish champions are ‘very close’ to landing him for a possible transfer fee of €3-3.5m. confirm that the Turkish champions have initiated talks with the defender’s agents to assess the availability regarding a summer transfer.

Ballo-Toure is happy at Milan but he would like to find a club that can guarantee him greater playing time given Theo Hernandez and even Alessandro Florenzi were ahead of him in the pecking order in 2021-22.

Trabzonspor made a €3m bid for the 25-year-old but sporting director Ricky Massara does not consider him to be for sale. Therefore, a decidedly higher offer would be needed to change his mind and the ball passes back to Trabzonspor.

  1. Are you kidding me? This is not an asset it’s a liability. Just get rid of him for the same price we paid around 3m and bring in a young italian backup that is promising as we need the homegrown numbers anyways. There you go Milan, 2 problems solved…

  2. Crazy that we wouldn’t offload him for a cashback. He doesn’t have positional nous and surely management don’t see him having much potential, so loaning him doesn’t make sense.

    Sell him and use the funds for a young backup for theo. Cambiaso would be ideal but perhaps too expensive (I’ve read Genoa looking for €12mn)

  3. You guys really think you know better than Maldini and Massara?

    While i don’t think he is great i do think he needs to be given a chance to settle especially since he isnt a starter

  4. Ballo should be given time to settle on, this season was his first in an entirely new league for crying out loud.

    If he doesn’t perform next season, then the management can do whatever is best
