MN: Milan standing firm on Kalulu despite Bayern interest – the reasons

By Oliver Fisher -

In the last few hours, Bayern Munich have expressed an interest in signing Pierre Kalulu from AC Milan but at the moment a deal seems unlikely.

MilanNews confirm our earlier report which stated that the Bavarians have asked for information on Kalulu and are thinking of a loan with option to buy deal which would see him replace Benjamin Pavard, who could join Inter.

There are a lot of reasons that Milan are unlikely to sell Kalulu. The first is that he is a flexible player given he can play as a central defender and as a right-back, allowing Pioli to have a reliable alternative to Malick Thiaw and Fikayo Tomori but also Davide Calabria and Alessandro Florenzi.

Furthermore, there is a timing issue too. It would be very difficult to replace the 23-year-old with so few days left until the end of the transfer window with another equally reliable and flexible profile.

Given Milan’s strategy it is also clear that if Bayern Munich were to present a big offer like €30m then things could change. The Rossoneri bought Kalulu for just €480k so it would essentially be a pure capital gain.

However, at present what is clear is that Milan do not want to sell Kalulu and it would take an irrefutable bid for their stance to change so close to the window end.

  1. It’s much too late to sell at this point. He’s not super critical, but is still very important. Bayern can look elsewhere. Is it our problem that they are selling one of their key players so late? No it isn’t.

  2. i can understand if they would consider offers above 40 mil but certainly not at 30 mil but overall it would be a shame if he leaves us,

  3. Unpopular opinion: I’d sell for 30 in a heartbeat, I didn’t like what I saw last season and Milan should be able to find a suitable replacement for under 30.

    However as many have stated I’d rather f Inter than make a couple deals at the transfer deadline. Screwing Inter should always be top priority!

  4. RB is a problem area for us. Calabria has an growing issue with ‘wandering’ into progressive midfield positions and, I noticed a couple of times at least against Torino, laboured to get back in position and we were caught out on the counter. I think he needs to decide on whether he is a FB or MF. Against better teams we will get hurt.. in short, keep Kalulu
