Official: Alexis Saelemaekers joins Bologna on loan with an option to buy

By Euan Burns -

Belgian midfielder Alexis Saelemaekers has officially left AC Milan and signed for fellow Serie A side Bologna on loan with an option to make the deal permanent next summer.

As was announced by Milan on the official website on Wednesday afternoon, Saelemaekers will not be a part of Stefano Pioli’s squad this season after the arrivals of Christian Pulisic and Samuel Chukwueze.

As part of the statement, Milan said: “The Rossoneri wishes Alexis the best of luck for the next sporting season.”

Since arriving at Milan, Saelemaekers has made an impressive 140 appearances for the Rossoneri. In that time, he never quite held down a regular starting spot but he did score 10 goals and get 14 assists.

With Bologna and Milan having already faced each other once this season, he will only face Milan on one occasion unless the teams are drawn together in the Coppa Italia.

Saelemaekers is expected to become an important part of Thiago Motta’s Bologna team.

  1. New management ain’t got time for this “oh hey, btw thanks for helping us achieve major goals the last few seasons” just yep get the foh 😂😂😂

    1. If he can prove himself ‘worthy’ he can reject any permanent move to Bologna and return to Milan, as IS the case for CDK!!!

      This is why we should never fret over a potentially good player leaving on loan if he has the winning mentality he will return to Milan, if he doesn’t, well then who wants him anyway

        1. What would you like them to do ? They are doing what’s best for the player. There is no spot for him this season. Would it be better for him to sit the bench the entire season and not play at all?

    2. I hope bologna activate buy option next summer for salad. Atalanta too activate buy option for CDK . With that money ACM can buy young striker like jonathan david next season ( contract left 1 years) . Worst case if both flop and return back to ACM . I wish both of them can score goal as much as they can
