Paper Talk: Milan make Aubameyang top priority; Gigio to arrive in Milan tomorrow

By Isak Möller -

Today’s Italian papers suggest that Milan could increase their budget in order to sign Aubameyang, while Donnarumma is expected in Milan tomorrow.

La Gazzetta Dello Sport

Despite having already closed seven players on the transfer market, Milan have no intention of stopping. Yonghong Li is considering increasing Milan’s transfer budget, mainly to be able to land their primary target; Aubameyang. In fact, it’s possible that Milan will sign both Aubameyang and Kalinic with the extra money. There will be a meeting between Dortmund and AC Milan during the ICC tour in China. 

Lucas Biglia’s agent is expected in Milan tomorrow, and it seems the negotiations to bring the Argentinian to Milan could soon unlock. 

Gianluigi Donnarumma is expected to return to Milanello tomorrow afternoon, after spending a few days on Ibiza. He could join the rest of the group on Friday for the tour in China. 

Valencia are very interested in Gabriel Paletta. In fact, they’ve already offered Milan €2.5m, but the Rossoneri want €5m. 

Corriere Della Sera

AC Milan are still negotiating with Lazio for Lucas Biglia, but it seems an agreement could be reached at €16m plus bonuses. 

With the money that Milan will get from sales, they will use to sign their primary target Aubameyang, who Dortmund want between €70-80m for. 

Bacca, Lapadula and Niang are destined to leave San Siro this summer. 


AC Milan have raised their offer for Biglia from €15m plus bonuses to €16m plus bonuses. A deal could soon be reached between the clubs. Tomorrow could be the day, as Biglia’s agent will meet with AC Milan.

Between tomorrow and Wednesday, Gigio Donnarumma will sign his new four-year contract with Milan, worth €6m per year. Gigio’s brother Antonio is expected to join Milan as a part of Gigio’s new contract, with Milan paying €300K for the former Milan player.

Il Giornale

Biglia to AC Milan is a done deal. The Rossoneri will pay €17.5m for the Argentinian midfielder. No player will be involved in the deal, as reported before (Lapadula).

  1. We must not in any case sign too costly Aubameyang, cause he was already our junior product, but Galliani was so stupid that he let him walk for basically free! Instaed of Aubameyang, we must try to sign Isco from Real Madrid at all cost! And as far as strikers are consern, we should fight really hard for Celtic”s young talented Moussa Dembele”s signature, because Dembele is much younger and has much higher potensial to be one of worlds best strikers, and Dembele is also a lot cheaper than Aubameyang!

  2. Auba has scored hundreds of goals for Dortmund and St Ettiene, he is proven quality. If you want guaranteed goals then you pay. Our biggest weakness last season was goals…we scored the least of all the top 9-10 sides and Auba will address that together with Silva. That we let him go as a youngster is our fault and has no bearing on his current value.
