GdS: Milan pushing ahead with €60m double deal – a sign of Elliott’s intentions and investment

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will have a big budget for the summer transfer window to invest in the squad and take it up another level, a report claims.

La Gazzetta dello Sport talks about a €100m transfer warchest with Spurs’ Steven Bergwijn and Reims’ Hugo Ekitike being targets for the attack, while there are a couple of deals that are already in an advanced state.

The first is for Sven Botman of Lille who Milan are willing to spend €30m on because they consider the 22-year-old to be a safe long-term bet, while the player himself is ready to move on as he has dreams of being in Van Gaal’s plans for the World Cup in Qatar.

Then there is another Lille star in Renato Sanches who Milan want to replace Kessie, and again they are willing to send €30m to Les Dogues thus making it a €60m double deal involving the French side, with relations between the clubs excellent as seen in the Leao, Djalo and Maignan deals.

The amounts mentioned above show how much the Elliott fund are now involved in Milan and in trying to get them back to the very elite in Europe. Paul Singer remains interested in the club but busy with many other businesses, while there is no denying the interest of Gordon Singer, who had lunch with the team at Milanello before the derby and wants to help bolster the squad.

      1. With all due respect and dont get me wrong as i would like several of the players you are suggesting but this seems more like a castle in the sky than an actual dream. I can guarantee you that milan isnt gotta get 15 mil for castillejo. We should propably be more than happy if we get 5 ml for him as he has a contract expiring in 2023 and then theres also the fact that the player seems more interested in returning home to spain than playing for other serie a teams.
        Bremer has interest from all around europe and knowing cairo will demand as much as possible for his prized asset tells me he wont get sold for 20 mil.
        Why would saelemaekers make a step down career wise when he has just renewed his contract untill 2026. Why would milan let the player go when they obvisously see a lot of promise in the player ? Add to that both lang and ketalaere propably will cost minimum 39-40 mil each as there is great interest in both of them.

  1. there are two options in terms of business, 1. buy just two players for 100mio, like charles de ketelaere which would be the coolest left foot ever and Neves or Rodri as Kessie replacement. Option 2. buy talents each 12mio, and hope that at least 4 of them will develop like Kalulu, Leo.
    Really not sure if a 60mio package from french league will bring us back in UCL in spring, thats neither fish nor fowl

  2. sometimes I am a bit confused, why don’t Milan use the 30Millions to keep Kessie rather than buying a new player. if Kessie asks for 8 mills, give him 2 years contract it cost 16 mill only. it would be much smaller than 30M. Instead of buying, spend 30M and + salary. Whats wrong here?

  3. Botman+Renato = 60m euro. Permanently junior 5m euro. Florenzi return back to Roma since we have Calabria and kalulu as RB and saele can play RB too, Bakayoko return to Chelsea ( flop and high salary) . We receive 12m euro from hauge if Frankfurt not relegated. Try to sell caldara + castilejo perhaps total 10m euro. With Renato,pobega, fill Double pivot and adili as AMF, i think krunic should be sell too because he is last choice in both pivot or AMF ( depend on club choice want to sell or not) . Consider we only use 65m euro for botman,Renato,junior. I think we can sign noa Lang 20-25m euro or use all our budget left for striker like Jonathan David/Isaak/Darwin Nunez. If sign Lang ofc cannot sign striker ( last option get belotti free )
