PM: Milan hold fresh talks over deal for Atalanta man – deal could soon be unlocked

By Oliver Fisher -

There have been new contacts between AC Milan and Atalanta over a potential deal for Atalanta forward Josip Ilicic, according to a report.

PianetaMilan confirm that Milan are continuing to think about Ilicic as an opportunity to bolster the attacking department with some quality and experience. The attacking midfielder looks destined to Atalanta, as stated by Gasperini himself last Saturday: “Ilicic expressed a desire to try a new experience at the end of the season.”

With his contract expiring in 2022 and with the amount of players available to Atalanta, the Slovenia international could be available in an advantageous deal and could also be very useful for the 4-2-3-1 of Pioli.

The report adds that there have been new contacts between Milan and Atalanta for Ilicic. Maldini and Massara would be willing to sign the former Palermo star without giving up the bonuses that are part of the Matteo Pessina operation. Milan are entitled to 50% of future resale but that expires once he hits 100 appearances for La Dea, and then a bonus payment of €3m is issued to the Rossoneri.

The feeling is that something could be unlocked in the next few days as per the report. It seems to be a solution that makes sense for all parties.

  1. It’s inappropriate for us to agree on the 3M bonus payment as they can sell him before he reaches 100 appearances, then, we will loose the 50% bonus if he is sold. If we are going for Ilicic, let’s buy him outright without Pessina’s deal. Atalanta are trying to play smart. Let’s wise up! Forza AC MILAN!❤️🖤

  2. Love Ilicic but his time is done. Old players are fine when they have an amazing mental drive. Ilicic is not like this. He is weak mentally. Bad transfer unless for free.

  3. Ilicic is a deadly player. Get him and Ziyech and stop persuing Vlasic or whatever. The experience is there too.

  4. All the players milan are following were rejected by their respected clubs, except “Vlasic” so for me vlasic is an outstanding option. the remaining are garbage. lol.

  5. Well he totally fits our profile – old and cheap and avoids us having to spend real money on a real player clubs actually still want – like Ikone…Should be great lol.
