Pellegatti: Rumours emerge that Milan are in talks with Spurs over midfielder as Pobega could leave

By Oliver Fisher -

Carlo Pellegatti believes that AC Milan may have opened talks with Spurs over a deal for Moussa Sissoko in their search for a new midfielder.

The well-known journalist gave some market updates on his YouTube channel (via MilanLive) confirming that Milan will now commit themselves to signing a new defensive midfielder. He recalls how Sissoko’s name was put forward but then discarded because he is in his 30s, but an interesting update has arrived.

According to Pellegatti, he has received word that there have been contacts between Milan and director Fabio Paratici over the Frenchman, but the news has come from a source in England and has not been fully verified.

In addition, he adds that Pobega will leave on loan again when a new midfielder arrives with the Serie A trio of Sampdoria, Torino and Cagliari all currently interested. Movements are expected soon, therefore, in the midfield department.

  1. Why…. if we bring this guy in (bad choice) then it shouldn’t be at the expense of Pobega, should be Krunic out instead. Keep Pobega who will already be better than Sissoko.

    1. what I feel is that Pobega won’t get any minutes because of the mediocrity of Pioli. SO it’s better that for his development he goes on DRY loan to a Serie A Club. Same applies to Plizzari as well.

      1. Sadly, I do agree, Pioli has no vision and is too average to bring players up. Club should demand more from Pioli but they won’t.

  2. Sissoko TWO YEARS AGO YES BUT NOW NO NO NO. He is no longer at that level to provide ferocity in the middle of the field, Milan needs an extra strong player up and down with a good overview of the game and a great pass

  3. Pioli simply does not like Italian players. Moreover, he doesn’t have the skills to support young players to develop. Imho, he was the beneficiary of good circumstances last season. He is just a mediocre coach. And he is with us because we cannot afford real coaches (as they are expensive).

    1. Yes, Savicevic. You speak the truth. I don’t know about him not liking Italian players, but Pioli definitely has not developed any young players. Without Covid interruptions giving Milan players a break to rest plus UCL, this season will be a much tougher test. I hope management will stop the bleeding with a new coach quickly, if Pioli does a Giampaolo.
