Tuttosport: Pursuit of Liverpool man sees Milan move away from Belotti idea

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are moving away from signing Andrea Belotti on a free transfer because they seem to have opted for Divock Origi, a report claims.

According to Tuttosport (via SempreMilan.it), the sudden acceleration for Origi means that Milan are concentrating all their energy on signing him for the attack, meaning Belotti is moving away from the Rossoneri’s orbit.

The free transfer idea is attractive to Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara, who would be able to bring home a player of European caliber while also saving transfer funds, and the 26-year-old is the man they are focusing on over Belotti.

Belotti will leave Torino and has always been considered as a target for Milan, but it seems he no longer tempts the leaders quite as much as he did before such as back in 2017 when a big offer was made. Given he is a boyhood fan of the club, Belotti is understood to have been holding out for the Rossoneri.

  1. Milan is silly to let Belotti go. The least is to lock in an attractive 2-3 years contract. Use the money for Kessie to get Belotti. This guy with good service from midfield is worth at least 15 goals a season.

    Milan can also try a twin strike force combo.
    Leao + Belotti / Rebic + Belotti. Giroud / Ibra is backup.

  2. That’s so stupid. Belotti will end up in Napoli or Atalanta and we’ll be watching him scoring 20+ goals for a direct rival next season, while having Liverpool’s best bench warmer as our starting striker… Great.

    1. My thoughts exactly. And then Origi will become a new Castillejo. Watching the matches on the bench and will not leave because no one is stupid enough to pay him that kind of money Milan will.

  3. Can’t believe this one is going to slip away, unless he’s asking for crazy money this should be #1 target IMO – Origi is a big gamble in comparison

  4. Just sign him. A strong, motivated player with experience is never a bad option to have.
    And even if he doesn’t fit the team, we can always sell him and make some extra cash.
    Let him compete with Origi for starting XI. We are always struggling with injuries and the next season will be pretty busy.
