Tuttosport: Milenkovic track fades as Milan do not have €15m to spend in January

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have not given up their hopes of signing Nikola Milenkovic from Fiorentina but it is a very complicated pursuit at present, a report claims.

According to what is being reported by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), the defender has long been in the sights of Milan’s management and the scouting team and now that they are looking for a new centre-back for the January window, the Serbia international’s name is back in fashion.

However, the paper claims that it remains a very complicated deal to close because La Viola are asking for at least €15m to let the 24-year-old leave, a figure that the Rossoneri do not have available for the upcoming winter transfer window.

Whether this means that other targets such as Bremer of Torino and Sven Botman of Lille are also ruled out due to their price tag is not specified, though there could be some creativity regarding formulas such as loan with option to buy or obligation.

    LOL…still no fkn money. Can’t say I’m surprised. Hope we can at least sign Kamara on a pre-contract and Faivre but leave him on loan at Brest for rest of season – and pray we can be healthy to finish top 4…

      Let’s hope Elliott find buyers soon that are willing to invest in the club, how are we supposed to challenge for anything when 15m is too much.

    According to other papers, probably Tuttosport included, Milan do expect to get about 7M for Castillejo and then there’s Conti too, tho, so the fact Milan don’t have 15M to spend on Milenkovic right now doesn’t mean it’ll be like that in the following days, it only means what everyone already knew, that we don’t have money right now, it’s not even news, lol.

    So sad. Milan act like they are some mid level team like Udinese or Sampdoria. They’ll never return to the top with this ownership. Ibra should leave and spend his last seasons with a team that wants to compete.

    Milan isn’t going anywhere with Elliot management at the helm of authority. Mark my word

    The best we will boast of is a champions League place, scudetto, nah nah nah

    The best thing that can happen is to put the club up for sale.

    Would you guys like to have juve or inter owners instead? Both clubs have around 600m debt, at least Milan are stable financially, if we can’t afford 15m then what dose that say for them. They are getting loans for players they can’t afford to keep and when inter had to sell Lukaku most of that money went to man u cos they had not even paid for the original transfer and there was a % of the remaining fee that went to man u also. The grass is not greener on the other side. I wouldn’t believe what a juve backed newspaper has to say anyway.
