PM: Milan hoping Chelsea complete €115m deal for two reasons as they target €40m winger

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are hoping Romelu Lukaku’s move to Chelsea goes through for two reasons, according to a report.

As PianetaMilan writes, Monday could be the decisive day in the Lukaku operation as he looks set to join Chelsea for €115m in cash with no counterparts, and the Belgian will earn €12m net per season plus bonuses per season until 2026.

This is good news to Milan for two reasons. The first is that it weakens a top four rival, and the second is that it could actually help the Rossoneri land a major attacking target in Hakim Ziyech. The excellent relationship between the two clubs could also favour the operation, with Milan trying to agree a two-year loan with option to buy.

Ziyech is of course not the only target Milan have for the attack, but his quality, experience and versatility makes him a favoured option, just a year after he joied Chelsea for €40m plus €4m in bonuses.

  1. It remains to be seen. I do not think Chelsea will prefer for example “a loan plus option to buy” version as they will be desperate to cash in after spending such a sum on Lukaku. Additionally, they will seek to avoid losses. Definitely, we should keep tabs on the matter. But I would not be so optimistic about landing Ziyech. Moreover, do we afford his salary?

  2. We’ve beaten Inter a couple of times with behemoth Lukaku playing every minute, so the point about the team getting weak doesn’t hold much weight. Had it been we had much more depth last season, we would have won scudetto and everyone knows that.

    I earnestly want to see Maldini close this deal, get us Ziyech, Dalot, Bakayoko, Isco and a promising young striker and we are good to go
