Tuttosport: Milan dream behind Belotti’s many rejections – now his future is an enigma

By Oliver Fisher -

We are now into July and the future of Andrea Belotti has not yet been resolved despite the number of clubs interested in signing him.

Today’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) takes a look at Belotti’s rather peculiar situation. The Italy international would be available on a free transfer after his contract with Torino expired on 30 June.

The paper explains that there is a ‘Milan dream’ behind the many clubs that he has already rejected. It is no secret that Belotti has always been a Rossoneri fan, and so far he has refused all the offers that had arrived because he is hoping for a call from Paolo Maldini.

However, it must be noted that Milan preferred to turn to Liverpool striker Divock Origi who joined on a free transfer, but that hasn’t stopped Belotti waiting for the right move. Il Gallo said no to Fiorentina, Monza, Monaco and Nice, with Roma and Napoli destinations he would also consider.

  1. I will never understand why we got Origi and not him. I don’t really see Belotti as a top striker but he is better than Origi.

      1. He played 150 matches in total in his career. Belloti played that in 3 seasons. That experience is sitting on the bench most and that one good match. Don’t see that he will be really relevant or used that much but let’s see. For me, he got way too much money for what he offers.

  2. Unless he’s looking for big money I’m really surprised he hasn’t fit into this team and no-one has seen fit to sign him for Milan. Proven scorer, would rotate perfectly with leadership and strength… he seems the perfect rotation partner for Giroud or potentially Origi long term.

    I expect he’ll go to Monaco or Roma but will be disappointed to never see him in a Milan shirt.

  3. When AC Milan come to sign him in 2016 . He use AC Milan interest to get contract highest paid player in torino for 5 years duration, after his contract expire ,torino want to reduce his salary due to downgrade performance. Nobody willing to give him salary like torino did 4m euro nett. AC Milan of course not interesting sign him anymore

    1. LOL, and Origi is worth that money? Belotti at least has the experience from matches, not from bench warming, would definitely be a better choice.

  4. Agreed with the sentiment here, we should have signed him. No he’s not a world class forward but he ticks the Italian box (a criteria the squad is surprisingly struggling to meet).

    Plus he’d be happy to rotate rather than insist on being first choice.

    Was it due to the growth decree we chose Origi over Belotti?

  5. sign him with reasonable wage, we need Italian (regulation), Z out till winter & he has extra motivation just like Tonali & Calabria
