Official: Milan redeem Jimenez from Real Madrid with four-year contract signed

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan have officially redeemed Alex Jimenez from Real Madrid after the full-back spent this past season on loan with the Rossoneri. A four-year contract has been signed and there is also an option for another year. 

Jimenez exceeded expectations with his performance for the Primavera side this past season, even making appearances for the first team. He looked quite good in some of them and it’s clear that he has a bright future ahead.

Although it was expected, Milan have now announced that the season-long loan has been made permanent, paying the buy-out clause to Real Madrid. The 19-year-old has signed a four-year contract with the club and there is an option for another year.

“AC Milan is delighted to announce it has exercised the option to sign Alejandro Jiménez Sánchez from Real Madrid on a permanent deal. He has signed a contract with AC Milan until 30 June 2028 with the option to extend his stay until 30 June 2029,” the statement read.

It is believed that Real Madrid have a buy-back clause, even if the amount hasn’t been revealed yet. In any case, this is a great signing for Milan as Jimenez was one of the best players for the Primavera, above all showcasing tremendous acceleration.

  1. I guess we believe in this kid. I hope he develops at Futuro, and bridges to the senior team soon. Along with the rest of the talented kids…

    (Please fix your site for crying it loud)

      1. You’re hosted on crap servers (cloudflare) which is why we have to submit replies multiple times before they show up!

        1. Don’t submit multiple replies, that will only mark you down as spam and it’s likely why your comments are not showing up immediately. If the system thinks you are spam, we have to approve every single comment until it ‘likes you’ again. If you post the same message several times, that will never be the case. Just wait for us to approve it instead.

          1. As the other guy said. Cloudflare crap servers. If you’re going to host a site like this you need to invest in infrastructure. Not a site hosted by 2 bit scammers like cloudflare. I work in the cyber security industry and the majority of the certificate takedowns we do on phishing sites are hosted by cloudflare using DV certificates which don’t require any form of organisation validation.

          2. Isak thanks for replying.

            Right now at this very moment the site is insecure. Check the browser. Guessing a missing cert.

            Next is the “your pairing too fast” but that has been happening for months intermittently.

            That looks like a database deadlock at first blush. People frequently reference this big in their posts.

            I hope that helps on the specifics. You have my email. Hit me up if you want more gory detail.

      2. Isak , you must be aware of the many many many comments made here by people getting frustrated when they try to make a post and constantly get “you are posting to quickly” even if it’s your 1st post of the day

        1. I haven’t heard about that specific error, but there is a problem with comments in general. Anyone who posts just need to be a bit more chill and it will eventually be manually approved by us, spamming doesn’t help

          1. ‘You are posting too quickly” message has been a thing for years and the website has been made aware of this issue so many times that it must have been said hundreds of times in the comment section.

          2. Thanks for engaging on this.

            There are times a comment may be posted and does not show up, as you say identified as spam.

            The REAL problem, which is ongoing is not that. It is When you post and the system does not accept it at all “you are posting too quickly”.

            This happens if it is an original post or a reply and as I said might even be your 1st and only post

        2. ‘You are posting too quickly” refers to posting a comment too quickly after opening the page, ie, commenting without reading the content.
          It is not to do with quantity of poster comments.

          1. I’ve had that appear even after not commenting for several days lol. First comment I make in a couple of days and I get that message even after reading the article.

          2. This cannot be true. I specifically tested for that when puzzling about it.

            There is strong correlation but not causation with high load. Player ratings right after the game are chronically buggy this way.

            If there is code that is supposed to do this, it is not working as expected.

            Additionally Isak, your tech team will have logs for weeks of not a year or more of user activity and errors. They simply need to search those logs for errors to start finding root cause.

            At your service.

      3. I’ve had lots of issues as well, I can’t even load the site in my mobile Chrome browser now, I have to use incognito

      4. It’s painful trying to post more than two comments as you run into the “posting too quickly” error message FREQUENTLY. On another occasions, when you running into this error and hit the back button, then original comment disappears altogether, and the page just reloads. So often you’re having to retype the same message. And if your message is a duplicate that was originally submitted, then it will not allow you to post that precisely because it is a duplicate comment.

        1. In regard of moving backwards i have a solution that most of the time works.
          Just use the spacebar in front of what you initially wrote and maybe add a few extra full stops at the end of the comment.
          Obviously always good to copy past ones comments each time and in case the first suggestion doesn’t work you can always formulate yourself a bit different then it should work.
          I’m speaking in regard of the use of pc as i have no phone with internet so no idea if the suggestions works there,

          1. I’m expert on server side an not the front end.

            That said I think the app is saving the comment to a cookie before being posted and not clearing the cookie until it POSTs (http verb) successfully.

            So the inconsistency we experience in backing up to try again has to do with which cookies we allow. This is a working theory I’ve not taken the time to prove out.

            All that said it is a terrible user experience and simply should not happen in a modern web application. (This is a statement of fact you can find in design and product management books)

            I do enjoy the content and certain commentors I follow (e.g. Martin). So it’s a real bummer.

          2. I’m impressed you don’t have a smart phone. My wife has gone the same route. It’s hard to escape technology these days but is important to do so, lest we turn into complete automatons

  2. From what I read Madrid have a 10m buy back, so minus the 5 he is costing that is a 5m development fee for 2 years, if he works out. Not including his wages

    1. Reports of an incremental buyback up to 12mn in 2026. I don’t mind it if it was a bit higher, like 30mn or so, that way even if he turns into a top class full back at least we’d get paid for having a useful player for 2 seasons.

  3. Good deal without buyback clause, but if the clause is there then I’d say not really. This way we are just cheap satellite club of Real Madrid that will develop their player and if he turns out to be a top one, they will grab him without hesitation. For them clause of 10, 20 or even 30 milion is nothing. And Milan will be one to spend time and effort in development of a player.

    Club like Monza can do it with young Maldini, not Milan with Real.

  4. He can play both left back and right back. Great addition but needs to continue with more game time in first XI
