TMW: Striker signing imminent, Kessie confidence plus latest on Damsgaard – Milan market update

By Oliver Fisher -

Journalist Enzo Bucchioni has given some interesting updates on AC Milan’s summer transfer market, including their pursuit of an attacking midfielder.

During an editorial for Tuttomercatoweb (via PianetaMilan), he confirmed that the long-running soap opera surrounding striker Olivier Giroud seems to be really close to a conclusion as Chelsea have given the green light to his exit, and at the beginning of the next week, if not sooner, the announcement should come.

There is also optimism for Kessie’s renewal, even though there is a distance between the offer of €4m net per season and the request from the Ivorian of €6m net per season. The parties are working to find an agreement that Milan strongly wants and the player wishes to stay too.

Regarding Milan’s pursuit of Mikkel Damsgaard, Bucchioni reveals that the Dane was already in the Rossoneri’s sights, but his explosion at the European Championships has complicated everything. Now Sampdoria want €40m and Milan remain vigilant, but it is probable that the 20-year-old ends up in the Premier League.

  1. Hmmm so when it comes to money Milan can’t compete with any club,they are there (CL)now and needs to makes some sacrifices to stay there after all that’s where they belong

    1. It’s not about unwilling to spend is about FPP. We barely finally recovered from the last time we got banned for breaking FPP rules by our previous owner who spent like a maniac. The last thing we need is that again, Maldini is doing this the right way, and spending 40 mil for a player because he had a handful of good games makes no sense. So good on him for keeping it within the rules and taking his time.

  2. Milan is a poor financial club now in term of spending in the transfers, we must admit it, elliot is not owner who like to spend much money because they goal is to make profit as much as they can for them selves. We milan fans only can bite our fingers to see many good players join other club. Yes the pandemic effect all club financially but milan with or without it still have problem in the economics. Our hope now is maldini can make smart transfers and hopefully there some good player who want to join with us with limited salary

  3. Damgaard exploded because he was given a chance to play. How come our talents don’t explode in Milan? We need a coach that believes in developing youngsters like Dortmund, Atalanta, Ajax and so on. We have talents but Pioli is so adamant in giving them a chance. DONNA was given the mantle at just 16yrs and he didnt disappoint. Olzer has gone, Hauge,Tonali,Colombo should be given a bit of trust, to prove themselves since its obvious Elliot are not willing to buy players

  4. FFP is the main reason why we cannot spend more than we produce. And we don’t have imperial sponsors like PSG/CITY who pay a fortune to counter ballance the finances. Above all, we’re still monitored by uefa and if we spend more we risk UCL. Those of you who consider Eliot is to blame for all of this have poor memory. Even if arnaut would have bough the club he would have made the same thing as eliot in his first years.
