Relevo: Milan’s pursuit of Musah is not over despite likely Reijnders arrival

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan’s pursuit of Valencia midfielder Yunus Musah has not come to an end and the potential signing of Tijjani Reijnders won’t change that, a report claims. 

As has been reported by Relevo, the talks between the Rossoneri and Valencia for the American midfielder were progressing extremely well and a deal for a €17 million move had been all but agreed.

The Valencia owner then upped the asking price to €25m and it stalled the negotiations, with Milan focusing their efforts elsewhere. Despite that, they do not view the player as a lost cause.

With a small raise in the offer from Milan, the situation can be unlocked again. Despite the fact that Milan are now very close to signing Reijnders from AZ Alkmaar, they still want to sign Musah as well as there is a need for depth in midfield.

With a need to buy a striker as well, funds could start to become very tight.

    1. Why is Dominguez so great? He’s 25 and has been playing for Bologna forever. I don’t think he’s a big team player.

      1. What is big team anyway?
        Even if Dominguez flops he will be a low lvl purchase.. at 25 and a few seasons in serie A it’s the purfect time for him to step up.
        Remember Jack? Igračina!
        That’s Dominguez. Just Jack was an offensive/ creative midfielder and Dommy is a destructor.. so basically Dommy would be a mid lvl Kessie.

  1. Hope this is true, I really fear just RLC and Reinjders being the acquisitions when we really need to replace Kessie, Tonali and Bennacer for the next 4-6 months.

  2. What happened with Musah is when Milan first inquired about him, the price was €20m. Then Valencia heard there was going to be interest from English teams and changed their stance towards Milan to €25m. Basically unless these “English teams” actually make offers, it’s just an empty threat to bluff a bidding war into existence. Since Milan’s response was to back away, and there hasn’t been the bidding war Valencia hoped for, it wouldn’t be surprising if Milan do come back in and make a deal for him. We’ll have to wait and see.

  3. This is what happens when you make big sales early. All of our transfers probably cost us 5 million more than they should have so far. Regardless, they all have the potential to become good steals if they perform their best and stay healthy. We weren’t rebuilding the team with 35 million euros and honestly didn’t have to. We didn’t pull off any huge operations on the market for years. All of our transfers were for sensible amounts. When we consider we gave an extra 20 million to Lille for Leao, Maignan ended up costing us 35 million. Given his quality, it is still half of his value now. This probably factored into the budget going from 55 million down to 35 prior to sales.

    1. On the same argument, Premier League teams would have paid a lot more than what we did for several of these players. Reijnders would have easily gone to Chelsea or some other team for 35-40 million.

      I don’t think we really are rebuilding anything. Sure Tonali left, but the base is still there.

  4. We need another midfielder for sure, Musah is ok but a bit of a poor man’s Kessie. If RLC can stay fit he will do well but I’d be surprised if he makes more
    than 50% of games, especially with our medical team…
