Sky: Milan reach more advantageous agreement with Real Madrid over full-back

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have reached an agreement with Real Madrid which will see Alex Jimenez become a permanent signing, according to a report.

With the season paused for the international break, Milan are working on a few operations in view of next season. According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the Rossoneri have reached an agreement in advance with Real Madrid over the permanent signing of Jimenez.

The young Spaniard convinced everyone at Milanello and the management therefore moved early to secure him. So far this season he has played five games with the first team and 17 with the Primavera side.

Jimenez arrived in the summer from Real Madrid on a loan deal with an option to buy set at €5m. As reported by Manuele Baiocchini of Sky, the Rossoneri have however reached an agreement with Los Blancos over a buy-out at a lower price.

Real Madrid will reserve a buy-back on the player at a higher price than the current one. Having reached an agreement with Real, Milan must now reach an agreement with Jimenez regarding his contract.

After Easter the Rossoneri will meet the Spaniard’s agent to define the contractual details, then the signature and the official confirmation and announcement will arrive.

    1. Because he got into a fight with the RM youth coaches. There are articles out there about it when it happened a year or two back.

      RM then felt his development would be better elsewhere.

      Just like at Milan, there is a big difference in talent between their main squad and their youth teams. They have a lot of “stars” who aren’t physically or mentally ready for the pressure of top flight football or CL.

      Brahim Diaz is one example of this. Now that Brahim has experience, he fits better into the RM squad whereas he was too immature before (he also recently stated this publicly in an intv with GQ I believe).

      1. Good news, but has anyone noticed that boy would be better as a winger, he has confidence and holds the ball well, but lacks the build, I feel he would be like Calabria in future, if only we had coaches who observe players closely, he would be better as a winger, or even in midfield…..

  1. This is a common knowledge that real Madrid don’t make stars they buy them. They simply can’t groom player’s. They wait until a player make a name before they go for them.

    1. Common knowledge? Vinicius Jr wasn’t a star or readymade, nor were Rodrygo, Valverde, Camavinga or Tchouameni, they were relatively well known, but not household names and they didn’t arrive from other elite clubs. Real Madrid have an excellent track record of developing young players.

  2. I’d prefer if the buyback clause was removed altogether – but alas maybe that’s hoping too much.

    At least I hope the buyback isn’t obligatory – means they can only buy him back if both Milan and Jimenez wanted to part ways – and the clause should be active only on one/two years into contract. And only in Summer.

  3. So much effort being put into this player when we already have a LB in our youth team who apparently was good enough for pre-season but then the club change their minds…..

    It reminds of that other sport where… this doesn’t happen in any other sport.

    Maybe they could introduce a Tinder app for footballers. Managers could then swipe left and right and keep changing players every few months.

  4. My problem is, if we spend too much time with him we risk losing him if he turns out to be good. At least in this case we can make a capital gain out of him.
    But given that this is a similar case to Diaz, I’d rather just have him as an utility player or a bencher.
    The positive thing is that it will perhaps save us the need to look a for a deputy for Theo this summer.
