PM: Atalanta have no intention of selling €30m man and have a plan regarding Milan’s clause

By Oliver Fisher -

Atalanta have no intention of selling Matteo Pessina despite persistent rumours he could return to AC Milan, a report claims.

A number of different sources have claimed that Milan are keen on bringing Pessina back given his development since being sent to Atalanta as part of the Andrea Conti operation back in 2017. The Rossoneri kept a 50% resale clause which means they can essentially buy him back at half price.

PianetaMilan writes that despite the many enquiries from clubs, La Dea have no intention of selling the Italy international as head coach Gian Piero Gasperini considers him a fundamental pivot in his 3-4-2-1. He is a very tactically disciplined player who guarantees balance to the team, but there is also an economic motivation to keep him.

The Bergamo club want to monetise as much as possible if they were to sell, but 50% of the player’s future resale would go to the Rossoneri. However, that will expire when Pessina amasses 100 appearances with the Atalanta shirt across all competitions, and currently he has reached 59.

Milan’s clause is still in play therefore, but the management seem to have other plans to reinforce the attack. The idea of Atalanta is clear: Pessina will not move and will exceed 100 appearances, then his valuation is €30m.

    Let him be gaspirini or Atlantas President, we don’t mind but we have great great young Italy and our beloved Milan Star tommason pobega..

    Pobega is more of central midfielder while Pessina is more of an attacking midfielder; both have different roles on the pitch.

    Milan management needs to bring back this two lad to the Team. This Milan current squad need two attacking midfielder; Pessina can cover the space and the rumours of James Rodriguez (€10M) from Everton which is a good player, had some physical fitness issue, but whenever is fit, he show the greatness in him on the pitch.

    Pessina cost €25-€30M (Milan have 50% resale) and that’s probably €15M. They should make the move for James Rodriguez too. Total cost for both players will be around €25M which is not bad to invest in.

    Milan Management needs to act fast on the market.

    Pobega (CM) and Pessina (AM) are of different player on the pitch, but Milan need to bring both players back to the Team. Pessina cost €25-€30M, but Milan have 50% resale clause in his deal, we can get him probably €15M.
    Milan current Team needs two Attacking Midfielder and the rumours of James Rodriguez (€10M) from Everton will be nice move, though he had some physical fitness, but whenever he’s fit, he shows the quality on the pitch. Getting both Pessina and James (total €25M) will be a good deal.
