CorSera: Elliott executives hold contacts with Dybala’s entourage – the situation

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have made contacts with the entourage of Paulo Dybala over the possibility of him arriving on a free transfer, a report claims.

According to Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), there were telephone contacts between some directors of the Elliott Management fund – located in London – and Dybala’s entourage that took place yesterday.

The reason for the call was not so much to try to start a negotiation but more to ask for information on the progress of the discussions between the playmaker and Inter, given there are rumours that the negotiations between Dybala and the Nerazzurri have come to a standstill.

They also asked for information on Dybala’s salary demands, which are no less than €7m net per season and represents the true stumbling block of the operation. At the moment there is no negotiation underway, but the Rossoneri are informed and will stay alert for opportunities that may arise.

  1. 7 mill per season for a free dybala shouldn’t be a stumbling block, infact, he comes cheaper than buying CDK and giving him a 3-4 mill contract….why we so damn stingy??

  2. If we get him for free imo we should then get Enzo Fernandez for 18 mil, De Ketelaere for 30 Mil + 5 in bonuses and then keep gabbia instead of loaning him out and don’t buy a defender

    1. There is no such thing getting something for free.
      Agents commissions- e.g. Kessie’s agents commissions were around 10 mil.
      Enzo Fernandez was a back up plan for Renato Sanches.
      If you buy De Ketelaere, why do you need Dybala.
      And you wanna go into next season with only Tomori, Kalulu, old Kjaer coming of ACL injurie and Gabbia. That’s gonna be your defense for UCL and Serie A

  3. #RenewMaldini
    Guys Maldini’s contract expires in a week’s time. How come none of you gives a damn is beyond me.

    1. We do care but we have brain cells and know that by doing #RenewMaldini on SempreMilan will do absolutely nothing, if anything do it on a social media

  4. It’s a complete waste of time worrying about what players Milan will buy. Ultimately, they will get players they can afford. There’s no reward for all this pain n anxiety I feel about d way d mercato is run. Aside fans protesting at Milan HQ, there isn’t much I can do from here

  5. We should just go all out and get him, I remember when we dragged the Tevez deal until he joined Jeventus and we ended up with Maxi Lopez, I almost cried each time Tevez scored against us, very classy goals.
    Dybala will strengthen Inter as fuck, management should snatch this deal by all means.

    As for the RW, if we can’t get Dembele, we can play De Ketelaere there (even though not a natural RW), or Neo Lang or any outstanding RW.

    Having Leao, Dybala and Origi should already be an upgrade, having a proper RW will be perfect.


  6. Does anyone really think we will get Dybala?? LOL. Or CDK, Botman??? LOL. Not going to happen. We have no real $$$$. These are all BS stories. CDK for 35m??? Ha! Ya try like 55m which is more than our entire transfer budget apparently. Redbird is worse than Elliot. They do NOT have the $$ to spend on transfers. 40-50M is nothing. We are in for a long frustrating summer IMO. Training camp starts in a week and M&M still not signed. World Cup year – players want to know what team they will be playing for. They will only hold out for so long. Can’t wait to see what “Plan Z” is lol. Embarassing

    1. Become an inter fan then if all you can do is be absolutely negative about everything after we just won the Scudetto

  7. The big problem is the ‘domino effect’ that this signing could trigger… if the club signs Dybala for 7M a year, other players will start making similar demands and then… well, you get the picture.

    1. If Milan cannot raise the salary cap especially for some big players, then we have no business dining among the elite teams. Damn, we are Italian champions, and if we think we can pay all players 3m in salary, then our star players will leave like Kessie and top players wouldn’t come to our club.
      The way it’s done, not every player will make similar demand, they know there are exemptions, but the players demand some pay rise as reward for the Scudetto win.

      We are going nowhere if all we look at is the balance sheet, if we continue to act broke, stingy and pocket tight, it’s gonna burn us out.
      No coincidence Bennacer, Leao put their renewal on hold.

      In today’s football, money is essential, if we can’t pay our players, just sell them all.

      1. Yeah, we already have 2 players that are thinking about leaving. We lost 3 1st team players, and one really good backup in 2 seasons for free. All the debts that were reduced by saving would have been reduced by selling these players for a fee as well. 100+M in transfer fees.

    2. From what it says Milan don’t want to offer even 5+1M. I guess we will offer him 3.5M like Tomori and he will join.

  8. Dybala with a salary of 7m a year over a 3 year contract (total cost 21m) with a free transfer is a great great deal and v cheap if Milan can pull it off. He’s awonderful talent
