MN: Opportunities arise as Milan recover a non-EU slot – what filters on Kamada

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have got a non-EU slot back after today’s ruling, but they are not expected to use it to sign Daichi Kamada on a free transfer.

The FIGC has this morning decided that players with Swiss and British citizenship are equivalent to EU citizens in all respects, and these provisions will apply with reference to the 2023-24 season too, meaning they are effective immediately.

What that means for Milan is that the signing of Ruben Loftus-Cheek from Chelsea no longer occupies one of the two slots permitted per year to register non-EU players, so after Samuel Chukwueze joins there will be one left.

This had given momentary rise to speculation that Kamada could become a target again after the intense links last month, but MilanNews writes that the Japan international is no longer a target for the Rossoneri.

However, new scenarios are opening up for other roles that the club wants to reinforce, and the ruling certainly allows a greater degree of flexibility.

  1. With Chuky the offensive part of the team is well taken care of. Might need a ST but AM is def not what Milan needs..
    I still think with the spot now free they should get a young brazilian or shoud i just say south murcian striker.. Someone like Lautaro. Time for scouts to go into overtime

        1. And how much he want from Milan now? Some players accept lower salary just to play at historic club at Milan, we can’t be compared to Lazio.

  2. Italy and those piss poor decision making. Kinda like the whole Juve points deduction farce. Took them so long to make a final decision. Here its just plain stupid, as if no o e thought about this issue before. Also, What happens to the clubs who had to give up other players to get the ” non EU ” players that are now not in the criteria. Smh 🤦‍♂️

  3. Kamada is a no brainer, that we will play 433 doesn’t mean there can’t be a change of formation. Plus he has played on the wings in the past.

  4. Milan XI if 4-3-3 will be:
    Thiaw Tomori
    Calabria Theo
    RLC(Musah) sub: Krunic, benacer
    Pulisic Reijnders sub: Pobega, Kamada
    Chuck Giroud Leao

    we still can use him as a sub even if we get Musah or Domingues.
    Anyway, I would prefer him over RLC.
    I can’t see a problem bringing him even with 4-3-3 and backup for Pulisic if gets injured.

  5. Milan XI if 4-3-3 will be:

    Pulisic, Reijnders sub: Pobega,Kamada
    Chuck, Giroud, Leao

    I can’t see a problem bringing him even with 4-3-3 and backup for Pulisic if gets injured.

  6. I’m torn between Kamada and Taremi/Veliz. Kamada, because of Pulisic’s injury record. On the other hand, Milan needs a No.9 to replace Giroud, if we are going for silverwares next season. The FIGC decision on British and Swiss players is good for the league. Ultimately, the management decides what is best for the club. So far, they have done tremendously.

  7. He will be never bi signed by AC Milan under these conditions.And he shouldn’t be signed!!!!!!!At least 5mil. to agents,plus bonus to him personaly,plus 5 mil per year??????That is a joke!I wish him all best in life and carier!CIAO!!!!!Hei would get long term contract which could never be extended,and Milan couldn’t sell him to nobody because of his 5 mil. a year…same problem as Rebić,Origi,and so on….CIAO BELLA!!!!!!Go,and don’t turn back!

    1. That is the request to Lazio, not to Milan (the previous agreement was 3m/season). Even Luka Romero lower his demand for Milan compared to for Lazio. For some players, playing for Milan is a dream come true. I don’t think he will fit in 4-3-3 though.
