ML: Ramadani has a red-hot axis with Milan – three players involved in transfer triangle

By Oliver Fisher -

A lot of the media attention surrounding AC Milan in the last few days has also involved Mino Raiola, but he is not the only agent who has a big hand in the club’s future.

As MilanLive note, Fali Ramadani is a man who has been busy in and around Casa Milan over the last couple of weeks as a number of his clients are linked with the Rossoneri in one way or another.

For starters Fiorentina centre-back Nikola Milenkovic is one of the targets Milan are considering as they look to bolster their rearguard this summer. The Serbian has not yet renewed his contract, which will expire on 30 June 2022, and the player knows Stefano Pioli well from his time with La Viola – something which could help.

In the last few days, Ramadani spoke with Milan also about the permanent stay of Ante Rebic, currently on a two-year loan (expiring next summer) from Eintracht Frankfurt. Fiorentina hold a 50% resale clause on the Croatian, and Milenkovic could become part of the solution.

Ramadani is therefore working to satisfy everyone. Lucas Paqueta could also be thrown in as part of an agreement for Milenkovic as the Florence club have never hidden their interest in the Brazilian.

    Seems highly likely that we will try to keep rebic but in case of that happening this year i pretty much just only sees it done with a straight swap with silva going the other direction. That way fiorentina wont get their 50% resale percentage either unless there is a small add on with a few millions going to frankfurt. Milan wont satisfy fiorentina for making up a deal with eintract frankfurt and the whole idea of such road frankly seems rather preposterous to me. Sure fiorentina might miss out on a sales percentage but thats between the other clubs and really not our buissness.

      Even in case of straight swap, Eintracht will have to pay Fiorentina half the valuation of the player. They’re just trying to come up with a number that suits all parties.

        Hey there Kourosh, Im pretty confident that isnt the case. Sometimes deals are struck which in the end doesnt favour one of the parts as it turns out to be a gamble. 50% Resale clause means exactltly what it says 50% of the resale and in this case if its a swap deal its not a sale. Valuation of a player isnt just as simple either because selling clubs often push the price upwards and clubs endup paying far more than what the general consensus of said players value really is. To add to that whos to say rebic isnt valued higher by fiorentina then than what both milan and frankfurt does that would open up for far more lawsuits in football as one downside. Rebic will have a 1 year contract left from 2021 so even at that point his value will not be the same as now. As i said though if we are forced to add some millions to get the deal done with eintract then fiorentina will be in their good rights to demand 50% of those millions from the germans but in no way from ac milan. The entire notion of us paying for eintracts deals with fiorentina simply cant be true and if thats how we wanna do buissness i’d hope those involved get canned in a blink of a second and besides of that it would propably also be against the whole ruleset of ffp.

        Lets look at a player that is currently mentioned as potentially returning to ac milan in the player of pessina. We are apparently getting around 50% of his sale but unless we have a first refusal inserted whos to say that they might demand more from us than they actually will from other clubs just because they might prefer him ending up elsewhere as we are strengthening as a team. Anyways would like us to get him back with us but just an example that contracts setup between clubs might not be as favourable as they sometimes sounds.

        Anyways didnt you write either on rossoneri blog or goal at some point ?
