Romano: Why Chukwueze wanted Milan despite Premier League rumours

By Oliver Fisher -

Samuel Chukwueze only wanted to join AC Milan this summer once he heard of their interest, it has been revealed.

According to the latest from Fabrizio Romano on his Daily Briefing, Chukwueze never had anything very concrete in the pipeline regarding a move to England despite links with Premier League clubs over the years.

It was only ever some meetings with his agents, while Milan were ‘always the player’s priority’ and the 24-year-old wanted to join Milan because of their project and because he will be an untouchable starter with the Rossoneri.

The journalist reported that Chukwueze will sign a deal until June 2028, while the Rossoneri management have agreed a fee around €20m plus €8m in bonuses with their Spanish counterparts.

Milan have been in the market for a new right winger this summer and Chukwueze has always been the first choice, given he amassed 13 goals and 11 assists in all competitions last season for the Yellow Submarine.

    1. With Pulisic, Okafor, and Chuk around, surely there’s no need to have Rebic, Messias, Alexis, (and even CdK) around. Or else our squad will be too big and it’s not efficient.

      1. Honestly, I’d like us to give CDK another shot this season.. Rebic would make a good sub for Giroud but his workrate need to improve..

  1. Because he knows that RW spot is there for the taking and he can be a crucial part of a project. Plus the weather and food are better lol.

  2. Yes, he won’t be undisputed first if he doesn’t produce or fit in well in the system. There are options. At least puli and Romero may have a saying as to how much he will play. Saele will probly play too but only 15 minutes here and tvere.

  3. Let’s not forget the effect of osimhen who’s probably his best friend on the entire Nigeria team as they always call and are seen in picture together. I’m sure osimhen told him how nice Italy is

  4. The squad we are building is more suited to a 4231…
    Calabria, Kalulu/thiaw, tomori, Theo
    2 of krunic/RLC/Reijnders/Bennacer
    Chuck/Romero ,Pulisic/Reijnders , Leao/Okafor
    Giroud/Okafor or new signing

  5. Yes , thats the right choice , he can easily take starter from junior + saladmaker . I dont see the reason anymore keep junior + salad due to we have romero & pulisic can play as RW also CDK can play as RW

    1. Please enlighten me what has Maldini got to do with this. Who mentioned or spoke about Maldini.
      Sometimes people cause chaos for no apparent or logical reason.

      This your behavior shown just now is a perfect example of Thomas Aquinas thesis on uprooting issues.

      So a new signing cannot be celebrated without taking jabs at some folks.
      Childish behavior really. And I now see why that meme word rent free in someone’s head holds some validity
