CM: Milan want to terminate Adli’s loan at Bordeaux early amid AFCON worries

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan want to terminate Yacine Adli’s loan spell early given the problems they are set to encounter in midfield, according to a report.

Ismael Bennacer and Franck Kessie are both expected to be called up for the African Cup of Nations next month, for Algeria and Ivory Coast respectively, which is bad news for Milan who would be without them for a few weeks and several important games.

In addition to the length of the tournament, that is how long Bennacer and Kessie manage to stay in it, Milan would be without them for an additional ten days because of protocol regarding returning to Italy after travel to Africa.

According to, Milan are planning to bring Adli’s arrival from Bordeaux to January forward by six months. He was signed in the summer and left on loan with the French club to develop, but the midfielder could be very useful to Pioli in view of the absences of Bennacer and Kessie.

  1. Clueless Management. We have certainly out of the running for players we initially planned to sign…. People like Boubar Kamara, Romain Faivre, Alvarez, are all out of our reach now because of the Lack of experience and foresight in handling negotiations and Contracts. Cutting short Adli loan saves money on buying players, but do we still need to keep Bakayoko? Did we need him in the first place? We sent Pobega who was fit and showed lots of promise in pre-season, and brought in an injured Bakayoko who didn’t have his first start for the first one an a half months, and we had to put up with Kessie’s physical struggles during that period when we needed a fit player like Pobega. It was pure madness from the management. We have non-performant players consuming Elliot funds with no valueable return on investment, and everyday we hear we are trying to save cost on salary overheads. We are scrambling, looking for replacement for Kjaer and our attack is shooting blanks. If we had a attack firing on all cylinders, our defence would have some respite. But we are lacking that bite in offence. We can’t keep over looking this. Maldini and Massara’s obesion with cheap deals landed us we deadweights like Pellegrini and Giroud. Messias is yet to show his mettle, but we can all see that his case in the mercarto was one of “PANIC-BUYING”, just to save face. We need to step up. It’s beginning to look like another gloomy season all over again, where we fight Blood-Sweat-and-Tears to attain a top 4 finish. I can say Ibra can’t last the way we use him, if we continue to burden him this way, he is likely to join Leao and Rebic sooner rather than later. Can we just do better with player management. This is the Senior team ffs, not the primevera. We need to prove we have an objective, not show up to make up the league numbers season-to-season. We need to wake up!
