MN: Milan left with a Hauge dilemma to solve – the two-fold temptation to cash in outlined

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are tempted to sell winger Jens Petter Hauge because of the possible capital gains that could result, according to a report.

MilanNews writes that the player’s value to Milan is more complicated because right now Hauge has both Ante Rebic and Rafael Leao in front of him in the pecking order for the left wing role, and him staying as a third choice given his age and potential seems unlikely.

He does not seem to possess the possibility of playing in other positions and this leaves Milan in a predicament, so they could consequently ‘exploit’ the abundance of alternatives in that role to obtain a big capital gain from the sale of Hauge.

There is the interest of German clubs at a figure of around €15m or he could also be used as a valuable counterpart in another negotiation such as, for example, the unsuccessful attempt to sign Rodrigo De Paul.

  1. If they let him leave he will be Milans next mistake like Locatelli, Andre Silva and Pessina. I’d like to see him given a chance in the number 10 role behind the striker. In terms of the minutes he played he was probably the next best attacker after Ibra.

    1. +1!

      Give Hauge a chance to shine, Pioli! Remember how he brought Milan to group top position in EL group stage and how you crashed out EL knockout stage by excluding Hauge?

  2. We are embarrassing…give the kid a chance. Try him at RW or ACM if we have to. Elliot is worth 30 billion dollars and we cannot spend a dime. Sell our best talent for peanuts and then they become stars…

    1. Pioli isn’t that flexible, he’d rather play Krunic as ACM. He’s far better than Leo Technically, finding space and cutting in scoring.

  3. “He does not seem to possess the possibility of playing in other positions”
    What a load of BS?! He hasn’t been tried anywhere else than LW and even there he hasn’t had enough time. He’s a young lad coming from Nordic and far away from home. It takes time to settle in. Next season he will score 10+ goals for sure.

    With his scoring skills he could make it as a striker too! Far better option for the lonely striker than Leao & Rebic.

  4. Milan wants to sell hauge because he has capital gain. And this is the main objective of Elliot and Gazidis. under these management, milan will become arsenal fc. All in their mind is capital gain. Why are they not so eager to sell leao? Because leao sale will most likely cost milan a capital loss due to his recent performance. And that is not aligned with elliot’s objective. This elliot doesnt care about glory of Milan, these guys care about to make Milan a window shop for other club. It just a matter of time until they make cash from theo, kessie, etc.

  5. Exactly what i have i mind. Selling Leao means capital loss for Elliot and Gazidis. Rather they prefer to sell Hauge for capital gains now for just 15m forgetting that he could explode in a full season and even twice his price now. I see the next Messi in Hauge. He can excel in ACM. He’s got speed, dribbling skills and eyes for goal
