Reports: Milan fail to include Origi in Mir deal as Sevilla look for replacement

By Oliver Fisher -

There seems to be no guarantees that AC Milan will get the signing of Rafa Mir over the line before the window closes, reports claim.

The collapse of the Mehdi Taremi deal did not change Milan’s plans for the attack, and the now-official loan of Lorenzo Colombo to Monza has intensified the search to try and get a centre-forward in before the window closes in four hours.

Patson Daka seemed like the chosen name but that vanished due to the times needed to complete a work permit, so confirm that Milan have turned to Sevilla’s Rafa Mir.

Milan also tried to include Divock Origi in the operation, finding a negative response from the LaLiga club. The parties are working to finalize the deal, on the basis of a loan with option to buy at €15m.

According to what Gianluca Di Marzio (via MilanNews) is reporting, negotiations between Milan and Sevilla for Rafa Mir are progressing, but before giving the green light to the attacker’s transfer, the Spaniards want to find a replacement.

While waiting for Sevilla’s response, Milan are still keeping the Daka track open. It is a race against time at the Rossoneri.

  1. I read he’s off to England for Nottingham/Burnley… but i’m not sure why they don’t just keep him since whoever Mir is, he isn’t a proven commodity and They could use Origi as back-up back-up.

    1. Whoever Mir is? He isn’t proven? All that is proven is that you know nothing about the game besides maybe a few top names. Do you EVER watch La Liga, or the Europa League?
      Rafa Mir isn’t the second coming of Van Basten, but he is far better and more “proven” than Colombo. As Giroud’s backup he is more than capable.

      1. It’s funny.
        People in the same comment say that they have never heard or watched the player and then they proceed to criticize the player that they know nothing about

  2. Why keep Origi if we can offload him. We’ve been trying for a year to get the best out of him but fail. No one is born proven not even Messi, they become proven over time. Mir has talent he can be of use unlike Origi, there’s nothing more to expect from him. He had a season long to showcase but failed.

  3. I remember some of you in here said that Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, reijnders and co were total waste. What about now?
    You need to trust the management and the coach when they’re after a player and give yourself a chance to watch them play with no bias and see what they can do

    1. Pulisic, RLC and Reijnders were sought for a long time. RLC was even a Maldini target.
      Mir is clearly a last minute target because of the Taremi deal.
      Well, can’t complain too much, I hope he does well if he comes.

      1. The scouting department must have had extensive data on him for some time.
        That we are just now going after him doesn’t mean he’s a strange name to the recruitment department.

  4. Have to say despite all of the positives from this summers transfer market this was not handled well at all by Georgio and Moncada. Scrambling last minute to fill a huge area of need is not good. Management has to take blame for this one. This should have been addressed earlier in the transfer window. We could have easily secured a backup/potential starter for Giroud months ago instead of only focusing on mids. Now we are scrambling just to find a warm body as we don’t even have Columbo any longer lol. Like I said management had a solid summer transfer window by all accounts but securing this position was not one of them and showed a lack of experience IMO. I just hope it doesn’t come back to haunt us if/when Giroud goes down or just needs rest. We have to bring Origi back and pray he can give us something at least until January when hopefully we can address this position at that time

  5. The man is obviously tall and strong. He’s probably positioning himself well and looks solid in the head play. But I have a feeling he would trip and fall at least three times if he led the ball completely unhindered towards the rival’s goal.
