Suma says Milan ‘will not be held hostage’ in negotiations over Valencia midfielder

By Isak Möller -

Yunus Musah remains the primary target of AC Milan for the midfield but the negotiations with Valencia haven’t been easy. In fact, there appear to be disagreements within the Spanish club that are blocking the deal. 

Milan need one more midfielder before they can consider their midfield complete and they have made Musah their primary target. Giorgio Furlani, Geoffrey Moncada and Antonio D’Ottavio believe he has the right characteristics to play in the centre of the midfield.

As explained by Mauro Suma in his latest editorial for MilanNews, there seems to be some internal disagreements at Valencia and while Milan are patient for now, they will not think twice about dropping the pursuit.

“Now the agenda includes a midfielder, will it be Musah? Let’s see, Milan like the player and he wants the move, but due to the frankness and sincerit we are seeing this summer, Milan will not be held hostage to the internal dynamics of other clubs,” he wrote.

Milan have moved with great determination so far this summer and it’s clear that the president of Valencia Peter Lim, who reportedly is the one blocking the deal, won’t decide the Rossoneri’s fate. If not Musah, then the management will sign someone else.

  1. If Lim is proving to be impossible to deal with, I think Dominguez may be a better option for us at this point. I don’t know why there is a hold-up… Lim simply wants more money I suppose. Difficult character to deal with. Reminds me of Claudio Lotito.

  2. If I’m not mistaken, Claudio Lotito, like this guy, is the majority owner of Lazio! They are not only concerned about the interest of the club and the players, but mainly their own pockets, that’s why they are so hard in negotiations!

  3. If Lim wants to play the clown, sure he can play the clown. In the end we can go for Dominguez who’s cheaper and try get Musah on a free next summer if need be

  4. Musah isn’t a make or break for Milan. He’s young and they can build with him long term but he’s not one of the center pieces in the immediate future. So, there is no reason to overpay for him. I think another midfielder willing to move for the right price will do.

  5. In order to change Lim’s mind we should be negotiating for an alternative to Musah. Gravernbach is ideal if available (but likely too expensive unless on loan w option type deal). Lim knows that is our only target so he’s being patient and seeing how desperate we are. Why rush if your Lim?? He has a contract until 2026 so unless Lim is desperate for $$$ time is on his side. Injuries happens and someone could jump in the race before now and the end of the window to make an offer. Musah would be nice (he had a solid WC) but if he wasn’t American I doubt we’d be after him this hard. Start negotiating with Gravenbach or Dominquez and maybe Lim will decease his demands.

    1. Are you even really read this article and news before this? Musah is main target but not the only options… Pioli is like dominguez more… And yes Valencia need money… Luckily we have new management that have more power and want to move fast rather than waiting for weeks…

      1. Huh???? LOL. Not exactly sure what you said buddy but nobody mentioned previous management there chief. Lay off the booze kid

  6. Easy to see why valencias owner is hated by all, even their own fans. Man is delusional. Going for Dominguez and maybe gravenberch on loan too isn’t a bad alternative at all

  7. ACM should start negotiate with yunus alternative like dominques , that will forcing peter lim owner valencia reflect . But getting dominques are not bad idea too , offer ballo toure + 10m euro to bologna will unlock the deal
