MN: Milan working on sale of €31m duo – the lesson from the Fassone and Mirabelli era

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s management are currently focusing on selling players no longer considered part of the plans, according to a report.

In Pietro Mazzara’s latest piece for MilanNews, he confirms that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have turned their attentions to sales following the signings of Brahim Diaz, Sandro Tonali, Ciprian Tatarusanu and Ante Rebic plus the renewal of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

However, the numbers need to be right. Lucas Paqueta cannot be sold for less than €23million in order to produce a small capital gain and also why the possible sale of Rade Krunic to Freiburg is more in line with Elliott’s economic system applied to Milan.

If the Rossoneri were to accept the Bundesliga side’s €8m offer, they would generate a €1.6m capital gain. This is something that was not really possible with the players that arrived under the Fassone-Mirabelli management.

That is because they were signed at prices that generated high annual depreciation, making it difficult to sell them at the price necessary to avoid a loss.

In addition, there is the problem of the salaries paid in previous years: Biglia earned €5m gross a year for three years in addition to the €19.7m paid to Lazio. Reina had a contract of €6m gross, Strinic of €4m. These are just examples of what this management and this property are struggling with today.
