CM: When Origi will sign his Milan contract and the differences with the Giroud operation

By Oliver Fisher -

It is just a matter of time before Divock Origi is confirmed as a new AC Milan player in an operation that will be a bit different to the one that saw Olivier Giroud arrive from Chelsea last summer.

Calciomercato.com report that Origi should sign his deal with Milan after the Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid which will be his last hurrah for the Reds. The last obstacle was the possibility that a renewal clause could be triggered upon reaching a certain number of appearances for the season appears to be no problem.

Any extension would have led the Rossoneri to have to pay compensation to the Premier League club, just as happened a year ago with the arrival of Olivier Giroud from Chelsea. The French forward was out of contract but the Blues had a unilateral option to extend him by a year which they took, so Milan had to pay a token transfer fee.

Unlike last summer, the same ‘problem’ will not arise in the Origi deal as Liverpool will not trigger any extension. Talks with Origi and his entourage began in March, he said ‘no’ to offers from German and English clubs – including Newcastle – and will sign a four-year deal worth €4m net per season.

  1. Excellent! He is a fantastic player — all of the Liverpool fans LOVE him and they are all sad to see him leaving; but understand given that he gets so few minutes behind Salah/Mane/Jota/Firmino/Diaz.

    Given his ridiculously great goals/assists per minute played, despite all of the world class superstars on Liverpool, I really don’t understand why Klopp didn’t play him more. Every time he plays he creates goals. He is such a smart player, well positioned, unselfish passer, great work ethic and a special nose for goal.

    I really think he will score 20+ goals for us next year and be contending with Immobile, Vlahovic, Lautaro and Abraham for most goals in Serie A.
    Especially if we get Dybala too — those two would assist for one another a lot. We will be a real force in the knockout stages of Champions League if we can get Origi and Dybala.
