MN: Milan turn to €25m alternative as Newcastle push hard for Botman – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s pursuit of Sven Botman appears to have stalled which has forced the management to look into an alternative, according to a report.

MilanNews confirms that Newcastle United have returned to the Botman race and they are pushing strongly even though the Dutchman would like to move to Milan, so the Rossoneri management are starting to move towards an alternative option.

The first name on the list of alternatives is Gleison Bremer of Torino, a centre-back who was followed with interest during the last season. He could leave for €25m as the Granata president Urbano Cairo does not want to cause a scene but wants to cash in on his sale.

Bremer has also had several contacts with Inter but has given his approval to Milan just as he would not mind an adventure in the Premier League, where Antonio Conte’s Tottenham are also lurking.

As a final hypothesis, it must be noted that there is a chance Milan do not sign a top defender, therefore definitively promoting Pierre Kalulu to the role of full-time start (with a renewal) and thus turning to a back-up, freeing budget for other areas.

  1. Pierre Kalulu was part of one of the division’s best defences last year, get him signed on a longer contract and get a decent backup.

    1. Yessir, best to leave it til january, see if the lad can carry the form forwards without the pressure of another top CB to contend with. Florenzi covers well for calabria so defense is almost set, I feel Theo needs a bit of healthy competition on him or else he fades in some games.

  2. Kalaulu should be a starter.
    Just renew Romagnoli’s contract, and keep him as a back up with Kjaer.
    Gabbia can go out on loan.
    Botman is an excellent defender, but if we have a limited budget, we really shouldn’t splash 30 million on him.
    Besides, neither Botman nor Bremer ar ideal for Pioli’s system.

    1. LOL. Just like they had with Tonali. You know the one who plays for the Rossoneri nowadays. Has been playing for two years despite his agreement with Inter 3 years ago.

      Some people think they have everything figured out…

  3. Agree with AD07. Renew Romagnoli, since Kalulu is coming into his own give him a fair chance. Use the funds for Botman to strengthen in attack, especially the right side where we lack goals.

  4. Agree with those who think that Botman, even though he’s an excellent defender, is not a priority for us. Let’s concentrate on CDK, Zaniolo, Berardi.

  5. very happy if we either buy a backup for kalulu or save 5m by purchasing bremer instead of botman. also BTW is a straight swap between bremer and pobega feasible? just a thought, but i do quite like pobega, and would prefer to keep him over adli.
