MN: Milan prepare package for Zirkzee after working on deal ‘for months’

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are working on the signing of Joshua Zirkzee and hope to be able to put forward a package that convinces everyone involved, a report claims.

We reported yesterday in our Substack update and today on our site that Milan are in negotiations across multiple faults regarding Zirkzee. They are speaking to the player himself, his entourage and have also opened talks with Bayern Munich.

Now, MilanNews are reporting that Milan ‘have been working for Zirkzee for months’ and have done so knowing full well the contractual conditions and price of the Dutch striker. The €40m clause in his contract is valid for everyone, not just Bayern Munich.

The management believe that Zirkzee is the right striker to take on the legacy of Olivier Giroud who is heading for Los Angeles FC soon, albeit with different technical characteristics compared to the Frenchman.

Milan chose Zirkzee months ago and have been working on the deal in between then and now, but they know the competition is strong and that they will have to put forward an attractive package to win the race.

There is the intention to use Alexis Saelemaekers in the deal as partial economic compensation to lower the cash required, given that Bologna have an option to buy him for €12m, and they will also try to include Lorenzo Colombo.

  1. Ac Milan: ” We will give you Colombo, Saelemaekers and 10M…ok ok….make that 12M”
    Ac Milan after 1 month: ” Alright, you win, we will give you Colombo, Saelemaekers and 15M!”

    Any other team: ” Here’s 60M, will it do or should we offer you 70?”

        1. Maldini got Leao, Theo and Bennacer in a single window for the same money this current clown of a management spent on Musah, Chukwueze and Loftus Cheek. You fool.

      1. Why do you think Maldini was in control of AC Milan’s budget?

        Man, some of you people are really special. Like, eating the toothpaste special. Do you even think about what you’re saying BEFORE you type it?

    1. Why you pay 60m euro while his release clause 40m euro?? Just pay that amount without include player , later bologna will use that 40m euro from ACM to activate buy option saladmaker if they still want saladmaker

        1. Source from pietro mazzara also milannews. That release clause valid for all club 40m euro . Bayern have advantage first option to buy but that depend on zirkzee will too. Of course zirkzee dont want become harry kane vice

  2. Milan management are a bunch of novice idiots. They should be going all in for Artem Dovbyk instead of Zirkzee. I don’t get the hype around this kid who is not even a striker. Unbelievable!
