Repubblica: Milan identify Bundesliga man as ideal summer signing – asking price is attainable

By Oliver Fisher -

More reports continue to surface suggesting that AC Milan are ready to go in for Marcel Sabitzer of RB Leipzig.

La Repubblica (via MilanLive) have perhaps gone the strongest yet with their story, claiming that Sabitzer is viewed by Milan as the ideal attacking midfielder and the most suitable to strengthen the Milan squad out of all the targets.

The Rossoneri have indicated Sabitzer as the number one goal to replace Calhanoglu because he has the qualities and characteristics to suit Stefano Pioli’s style, because he contributes both in and out of the possession phase.

His contractual situation helps Milan too as Sabitzer’s deal will expire in 2022 and he is unlikely to renew with Leipzig. The Germans are therefore willing to sell to the highest bidder, even for bids of less than €20m.

There are Premier League clubs, Bundesliga sides and some Italian teams (Roma and Napoli among them) keen on the Austria captain, but one thing is certain: Milan will try and consider Sabitzer as the perfect summer signing.

    Perfect choice

  2. Olas says:

    Pls Maldini get this guy. It will be stupid thin to get him on loan. Buy him at once.

    1. Eddie says:

      No team would let a player with 1 year left on their contract leave on loan.

    2. rivera says:

      Olas, I think that he would be the perfect choice if ACM can do the deal
      Austrian Captain , experience in UCL and a strong player on the ball, what else can they want?

  3. Juro says:

    I hate to say it but why would he come to Us? He has many clubs who want him who are also in CL and who will pay him more than we will lol. He’s not going to leave Leipzig for 3m a year. He’s 27 in his prime. He is looking for 5-6M per season. Are we going to pay that? Unfortunately no. We will end up with Illic or if we are lucky Isco on loan. We shouldn’t get our hopes up.
    The wish list:
    ACM – Stabizer
    RW – Ikone
    DM/CB – Kamara
    Striker – Vlahovic

    The reality:
    ACM – Illic
    RW – no change cause can’t sell Sammu
    DM – Baselli
    Striker – Giroud

    Horrible.

      Isco, Coutinho, Rodriguez all better than Sabitzer, he’s such an overrated player, I can’t fall for that crap.

      You speak my mind. Soumare was mounted for a very long time we ended with meite, Donna contract talk was talked about for a long time we ended up with maignan, Milan is like arsenal that set their eyes on talents then and later become a talent spot teams for serious team that wants to win. Who was their CEO then gazidis, arsenal went from a great team to become a laughing stock in all of Europe and the world at large. Who is the owner an American. I just feel sad that Yung li employed wrong and incompetent people to run the affairs of Milan. Milan management were swift in recruitment. But today we see all talents in Europe but we will be doing shrewd business and at the end of the day ends with bags of garbage. Man city, Psg, Leipzig, and many clubs bought their success. Even juvetus do buy success. Chiesa was talked about last transfer season but ended up with juvetus, after a year we are still talking about the same problem, why juvetus have solved that problem for the next ten years at least. Just imagined, that chiesa, olmo, szolobzlai, a decent striker (Andre silva remain), soumare was bought last season how will we have lost the league to inter. Maldini and masara are very good but the sanction on transfer from the CEO and president are very poor and foolish. This season now maybe what we will would have been talking about was a decent cover for teo, contract renewal for Donna, a back up striker for Andre silva,maybe a defensive midfielder for cover. The current Milan is like an ugly woman that was properly makeup by a makeup artist for a party after the party the problem still remain. Sign some decent players, improve the contracts of those performing this will ginger the rest to work harder. I don’t blame hakan so much for choosing inter. He will be playing with Lukaku and lautero Martinez I remember a fan suggested Martinez to Milan then but we went for quick fix at the end of the day the same problem still remain. Gazidis is the problem. He wants to be frugal but in reality waste money on garbage same with arsenal. After he left arsenal has started buying expensive players but little too late they have lost their knack and mojo for win. So they are just an average team. The same model that generated enough gain for arsenal is still the same model Elliot management are following. pls Elliot sell Milan to an Arab billionaire, sack gazidis unless Milan will only be an average team. That is the problem of gazidis is extra frugal when running a team but collect world class salary for his services. He is a selfish man.

    You have said it all @Kevin. Even if we won’t buy much players, ACM and RW need an quick fix. We can just grab Sabitzer asap and forget about this loan with option to buy formular. Sooner, teams will stop selling to us because of this awful formular of loan with option to buy. Maldini and Massara are good but if the Elliot management will make them look foolish, they should resign
