Sky: Milan remain confident despite AZ Alkmaar raising asking price for Reijnders

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and AZ Alkmaar remain some way away from finding an agreement over Tijjani Reijnders, a report claims, especially after the Dutch club upped their demands.

According to the latest from Sky, AZ Alkmaar’s request for Reijnders has risen to €25m and the two clubs are currently distant despite the fact that the Rossoneri management have struck an agreement with the player over personal terms.

However, there is confidence regarding the outcome of the negotiation not only for Reijnders but for Samuel Chukwueze of Villarreal too.

The demands of the Eredivisie and the LaLiga clubs are sizeable, but Milan are convinced that they can strike a deal with both of them having done what they can with the players.

In the 2022-23 league season, Reijnders played 32 matches and had 21 shots on target from a total of 45 shots, scoring three goals. He averaged 57 passes per match with a pass completion rate of 89%, and had 7 assists, as per Infogol.

  1. Milan is always confident, confident, then another club came into play, meet the demands, try to negociate with the player, and before we know it we find ourselves having to go for other targets and end up with mediocre players. Like if we could propose more than 20M why we didn’t do it from the get go when their demands were lower ? It reminds me of Kessie, Botman and so on…

    1. Idiots sold Tonali first, they should have had a ghost agreement with Newcastle, only announced and registered after we made our signings to prevent these prices from going up. We have inexperienced and staff mismanaging our transfers, it shows. We are in a position we are forced to buy, teams will squeeze us for every dime. Morons at work…

      1. Haha exactly, it’s like now they parade around with a giant sign saying “we have a lot of money and a midfield to build”. This front staff is so embarrassing.

      2. Lol, as if they care. They saw money incoming, they pounced on it. Theo would be sold too, Next year of not this year when Real Madrid come with a big offer.

  2. Milan is always confident, until another club comes into play, meets the demands, start negociating with the player as well, and before we know it, we have to find another target and end up with a mediocre player. Like if we could propose 20M+ why not do it from the beginning and avoid all theses problems ?

    1. Yeah. Get the first couple deals done and MAYBE then start the obligatory(?) haggling sh*t with others.

      So far we’ve got a backup-GK and a questionmark midfielder when we should have started with either a Tonali-replacement/upgrade or a star RW.

    1. Yep…and our current transfer activity suggest we are aiming for uefa spot, with a couple of amazing performances in the league and a second round champions league exit next season. All of our direct scudetto rivals are building and buying smart.

  3. Lol it was expected this happens when we are ill planned quick to sale then stuck with who to buy….ffs this management is running a historic football club and acting like relegated club in Italy….didn’t they planned what would be their targets before selling tonali….they are simply jumping around with begging bowls and asking for discounts on every deal. They shouid go for players who falls within their budgetary setup instead of wasting times on players who we cant even afford at first place ….we need a sporting director who literally knows how to conduct business…..but yeah its just 5th of July isn’t yeah right!

  4. We are where we are… Can’t se3 how Milan gets out of the stingy gameplan when other clubs steam roll ua to the finish line. We practically doing all the scouting here! Serious frustrations!
