MN: Chelsea could cover part of salary as Milan eye formula for Ziyech deal

By Isak Möller -

Hakim Ziyech has been heavily linked with AC Milan over the last 24 hours and it seems the negotiations are proceeding well. The Morrocan international could be the perfect solution for the Rossoneri’s attacking trio. 

Stefano Pioli has asked Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara to bring in a top-class player that can play both in the centre and to the right. Ziyech fits the bill and ever since the renewals of the directors were completed, they have been working on the transfer.

According to MilanNews, Milan want to bring in the former Ajax man on a paid loan with an option to buy. Chelsea seem willing to cover part of Ziyech’s salary, which is a big plus for the Rossoneri as that is one of the biggest obstacles for the deal.

Negotiations are continuing and it remains to be seen what the outcome of Milan’s interest – which is indeed very concrete – will be. Other sources (read here) have suggested that the operation could be worth a total of €25m.

    1. It’s a loan with an option to buy + Chelsea is paying part of his salary.
      Perfect formula which allows Milan to bring both Ziyech and CDK. Plus if Ziyech doesn’t pan out, you just send him back to Chelsea .

      1. And CDK is still unproven. Every 21 year old who’s got potential will not pan out. People need to understand what you get with CDK is potential. What we need is results, NOW.

          1. Ziyech. A full international and champions league winner. Not CDK who has two good seasons in Belgian first division.

          2. Dybala, Ziyech & Berardi. They are the most proven ones of the rumored options. Like it or not. Two of them have shown they can dominate in Serie A. Ziyech can make it in the EPL so he should be fine in Serie A as well.

    2. Different position dude. Ziyech for RW and available in loan with just pay 5-7m euto that will make budget available for CDK in AMF position . Only one from CDK / dybala that we can sign as AmF

      1. They won’t make two attacking signings on a 50m budget. Origi was your first arrival for the attack, then one more of CDK, Ziyech, Dybala….then your new CB and midfielder. That plus messias and Florenzi will be your 6 signings for the window.

        1. I dont think so. Ziyech just loan with 5m euro and AC Milan can still buy AMF with cash. The pair for RW – AMF option are ziyech (loan)-CDK ( cash)or Asensio(cash) – dybala ( free) . Only one pair from that 2 option will be signed. For CB most likely they will go diallo or another CB that can play as LB too so they can get rid ballo toure

          1. Hard disagree. You’re getting Origi +1 for attack and the remaining transfer funds will be used to replace Kessie and Romagnoli.

  1. I think Ziyech is more like Taarabt or Menez kind a player. Good, but not that good enough to be a star player

    1. True but he doesn’t need to be a star player. He needs to be an improvement over messias and Alexis, which be undoubtedly is.

        1. Yeah he won d champion league at bench not as stater n he is one of least contributed player at Chelsea that time

        2. Last season, despite playing more games than Messias, he only had the same amount of goal as Messias. We should not look at numbers like this…

      1. I think Saelemaekers and Messias can still improve, the former is still young while the latter just recently enter top level football.

    2. That is the best he is good but not too good that other team put to much pressure and attention on him this great to be honest to find that kind of players

  2. puno priče i filozofije !!! Zijech uzeti posudba pa vidjeti kako ide !!! Sa de Katelare isto uzeti i riskirati malo !!! Bez rizika nema profita !! te nam pozicije trebaju i bojle za manje para nevidim !!! Asensio i Di Bala nisam nimalo uvjeren prvi pre umišljen a drugi bez kondicije i sklon povredama !! – od stakla

  3. Zyiech on loan w option to buy AND Chelsea covering part of his salary is solid piece of business by M&M. Yes all the way. Let’s face it, we again don’t have lots of money to spend. This is the best we can do and it’s a huge upgrade to what we have at RW and he can play CAM.
