GdS: Three exits almost certain as Investcorp aim to streamline Milan squad

By Oliver Fisher -

While the majority of speculation regarding the summer window under Investcorp is about signings, there will also be some exits to make room for additions.

According to what is being reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via, there will be several players who will leave Milan ahead of next season as Investcorp – who are in advanced talks to buy the club – look to ‘streamline’ the squad ahead of a new era.

The paper reports that winger Junior Messias and midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko are almost certain to depart in the summer. They have had disappointing seasons and will return to Crotone and Chelsea respectively ahead of the 2022-23 season.

It is a similar speech story for Samu Castillejo who is a permanent Milan player but his contract will expire in 2023 and it is certain that the management will look to sell him on for an agreeable price, thus generating more funds for the market.

  1. I wonder how many articles in the last few years have confirmed that Castillejo will move on or his move will generate funds…

    This isn’t football manager game, he’ll only move on if there is a way for him to make a similar wage elsewhere and that’s not likely because he hasn’t been playing much – same with generating a transfer fee. He may go, but it’s more likely on loan with Milan paying a chunk of his wage.

    As to whether the other two depart, that will surely be up to the loan contract and any termination clauses. Again, it’s possible that the clauses would mean Milan paying for them to cut those contracts short. May be a worthwhile investment as it will save over a season, but not much.

    1. terminate loan of Diaz & Baka
      release Messias, Balo, Tata, Mirante, Roma, Kessie
      sell Salad & Samu
      loan out Lazetic, Maldini, Nasti, Colombo

      personaly i like ready player, but if i’ve to choose youngster

      home grown & ex-loan Pobega, Plizzari, Desplances, Adli
      buy Nunez, SMS/Dybala, Nkuku/Berardi/Raspadori, Botman, Theo’s bro (DC/DL) & Kamara/Renato

  2. Thank you. There are way too many people playing FIFA and football manager in these threads.
    There’s a reason why Castillejo hasn’t moved on and it’s because of his wages which puts off buying clubs. It’s the Mesbah/Constant situation like back in the days. Mediocre players on relatively big wages that ur trying to get rid of but they keep staying on because they’re getting money.
