Paper Talk: Renato Sanches offer submitted; €60m Auba bid

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have upped the stakes in their striker search, while Suso faces an uncertain future and Renato Sanches is linked, all in Saturday’s papers.

La Gazzetta dello Sport

Milan will focus on signing Aubameyang as the Chinese window is over & Milan have no rivals anymore. The meeting in China is important.

Milan have presented Dortmund an official offer of €60m for Aubameyang. They are offering the player €7.5m/year, but his father wants €13m

Wolfsburg offered Milan €20m for Suso and €3m/year in wages to the Spaniard, but Milan rejected it.

Nikola Kalinic wants only AC Milan. The Croatian striker has ordered his managers not to listen to any other offers. 

The proposal of the Rossoneri though (about 20 million), is far removed from the request of Corvino (between 27 and 30 million). Meanwhile, Kalinic has left the training camp in Moena for personal reasons.

Corriere della Sera

Leonardo Bonucci will become the highest paid player in Serie A earning €7.5m/year + €2.5m in bonuses

La Repubblica

Discussions are ongoing between Milan and Torino for Andrea Belotti. The general feeling is that 60 million plus Niang and Paletta, evaluated around 20 million, can close the deal.


AC Milan are prepared to offer between €8m/year and €9m/year to bring in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

There will be a decision made regarding Suso in the coming days, with three clubs interested in the player (one in Italy). The current management are offering him only €2m/year, compared to the €2.5m/year offered by the previous owners.

The Rossoneri are not willing to release Gabriel Paletta, as they may need to use him as a counterpart in a deal for Andrea Belotti.

Record (Portugal)

Milan are offering Bayern Munich €7.5m two year loan with option to buy for €40m for midfielder Renato Sanches.

  1. We must not in any case sign too old and costly players, like Kalinic and Aubameyang! We also must keep Suso in our team, even as a great sub, and not sign Kalinic instead! And it”s just really stupid to spend so much money on a player, who was already in our orgazation for years, and it will be even stupidly done, if we are going to a bidding war against Premier league”s top clubs for Aubameyang”s signature! Even that Belotti signing would be much better, although i would prefer cheaper options like Kelechi Iheanacho or Celtic”s young star striker Moussa Dembele! And now that we have signed Bonucci, we should switch 3-5-2 formation for next season! Bonucci”s signing also brings us the much needed experience to our young core, so we don”t have to bring more older players like Biglia, who will be pretty soon past their prime, and must be replaced! So Real Madrid has put Mateo Kovacic on the market, which we should use to sign him to be our new holding midfielder for years to come!
