PM: Maldini interested in exploring loan move for unhappy PSG midfielder in January

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum on loan, according to a report.

PianetaMilan report that Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara are always on the lookout for ways to plug potential gaps in the squad and one of them could arise in midfield at the start of 2022. Although Sandro Tonali, Franck Kessié and Ismaël Bennacer are present in the ranks – plus Tiemoue Bakayoko and Rade Krunic – Kessie and Bennacer will leave for the Africa Cup of Nations from January into February.

The permanent signing of Yacine Adli from Bordeaux took place over the summer but he will remain on loan there until the end of the season and Milan will not break the agreement made with the Girondins.

This is where Wijnaldum could come into play. He completed a free transfer from Liverpool to PSG over the summer but declared himself dissatisfied with the playing time he is having under Mauricio Pochettino, so he could leave in January on loan.

Paolo Maldini in particular is mentioned as having interest, and he would like to focus on a simple dry loan until 30 June 2022 to help plug a gap with quality and satisfy the Dutchman too.

    Brilliant move to share time with Brahim. Imo this is what we need rather than Faivre. We have Diaz who has been on fire, Maldini who is raw but has big potential, and then Wijnaldum who woulf bring the class and experience. Sounds iddal

      Same mistake we made last season by playing Hakan who is a CM as an AM.
      Wijnaldum is not a traditional AM, he is best as a CM.

      We need a natural AM for that position, however, I doubt the article even recognizes him as a fit for AM rather clearly state as a CM to cover for Kessie and Bennacer.

    No way,
    Dry loan? Please pass.
    We will be paying at least half of his annual salary, so we will pay him about 5m GBP?
    Just to cover for a month?

    We have only two or three tough Serie A matches in this period, Roma, Juventus and maybe Inter Milan (Depending on how long they perform in the CAF tournament).

    I will rather we try those matches and the UCL with our squad without making unprofitable signings.

    P.S
    Next Season:
    ST – BUY: Icardi (£30m), Belotti (free); LOAN OUT: Pellegri, Colombo; KEEP: Giroud (3rd choice striker); RETIRE: Ibrahimovic

    If we can handle this, RW, then get depth in AM, CB and try to keep Kessie, then we will have massively upgraded the team.

      Pellegri came on loan. How can you loan a player you loan?
      As good as Icardi is we don’t need anymore drama no thanks. Belotti yes.

      1. JOHN THE BAPTIST says:

        Forgot Pellegri on loan, makes it even easier

    2. lutfi says:

      a true milanist doesnt like icardi

      1. JOHN THE BAPTIST says:

        Yeah you right,
        We true milanisti didn’t like it when Milan bought Christian Vieri, Andre Pirlo and Clarence Seedorf from shinter.

        Need I say more??
