Milan studying low-cost option as Krasnodar open to selling midfielder for €5-6m

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are studying a potential low-cost reinforcement for the midfield ahead of January, a report claims.

According to, the duo have set their sights on Tonny Vilhena who was actually close to signing for city rivals Inter back in 2016 before opting to stay at Feyenoord. He did not manage to make the leap many expected and joined Krasnodar in 2019 – where he is under contract until June 2024 – and he would not reject the chance to take a big step in his career.

Krasnodar are willing to let Vilhena leave on a free loan with an option to buy figure set at an amount no more than €5-6m. Milan are thinking about it because Vilhena – who also has 15 appearances for the Netherlands – is still a young player (26) as well as modern, skilled with both feet and adaptable to various different roles in the midfield.

  1. Didn’t we learn our lesson last season with a few other “low cost” moves in Meite and Mandzukic??? Those didn’t turn out to well for us lol. You get what you pay for. KAMARA and FAIVRE should be our two “low cost” signings for this January. Each can be had for approximately 10-15M each – which may seem a lot but well worth the investment considering their age, experience, resale value and room for further growth…Kamara is a direct replacement for Kessie; Faivre would bring us a RW and back up CAM that can break the lines and score…

      1. Not sure what the heck you are talking about lol – but I’m chill mate. Just my opinion. Deals for now and future. Likely nothing happens but just my wish. In terms of high risk? To me it’s more risky NOT to sign these players – if we miss CL we take many steps back…and last time I checked Kajer Kalulu and Salesmakers don’t play DM like Kamara does – and Salemaekers has 2 goals as our starting RW? Hardly would say we are fine “this way”…

      2. Oh ya “mate” in case you didn’t notice Kajer is out for the season with a torn ACL lol…perhaps your “chilling” a bit too much?

        1. Chill.

          Saladmaker is a better and younger player than Faivre who does not respect his club. He is played out of position though by Pioli, same as 3-4 others
