Tuttosport: Milan could receive reduced buy option on Messias if Crotone are relegated

By Mitchell Wilks -

Milan could see their option to purchase Junior Messias from Crotone shrink if they are relegated from Serie B, a report claims.

Messias joined Milan on loan with an option to buy on deadline day last summer and has been used as a squad player in his time so far.

Tuttosport (via MilanNews) report that Milan could be able to make Messias’ loan move permanent, at a price lower than the €5.4m plus bonuses originally agreed. This is due to Crotone’s situation in Serie B, that sees them threatened by the prospect of back-to-back relegations.

A reduced price could be on the table if Crotone are to go down once again, perhaps bending the Rossoneri’s ear in their decision on Messias.

The 30-year-old scored a winning goal away to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, but is said to be playing for his Milan future in the next two months.

  1. Well it’s become maldini’s signature. Renegotiate what you agree before. Some people will see it as a cheap move. But actually it’s very hard to do and need extraordinary negotiation skill

  2. He has done ok on some occasions, and he stepped in to help out when needed. Especially when Rebic and Zlatan were injured.

    I have no problem with him sticking around for another season as a sub.

    1. Agreed, but he probably won’t sign a 1 year deal. So give him a 3 year deal and use him as a sub. That being said, if we get a proper RW Saelemaekers will also be there, so we’ll have 3 players for one position. So maybe just thanks but no thanks to Messias?

  3. He’s fine as a depth piece when we play lesser teams or if we need a bit of a spark off the bench late–he’s far from a star but he does show some creative qualities and decent skill. As a second or third choice I’m hapy to have him back, especially at a reduced fee.

  4. We could have gotten Brekalo for a bit more money, that is the part I don’t get as we are allegedly focusing on talents and we pick a 30 year old player for the RW. He is ok but I think we need an upgrade and don’t have money to spend on a backup if we will buy 3 players.

  5. The truth is, he is an average player who is 30 years old, who has reached his peak, Alexis is a far better player than he is , he loses the ball very often, chooses to shoot instead of trying to give a teammate in a better position, he is one dimensional, and a one trick pony,Milan needs better players than him right now if we truly want o elevate our quality as a team.
