Torino boss rules out January Milan move for Belotti in unequivocal assessment of his future

By Oliver Fisher -

Torino head coach Ivan Juric seems to have confirmed exactly what the future holds for striker Andrea Belotti amid links with a move to AC Milan.

This morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) reported that Belotti is not willing to renew his contract with Torino which expires next June and a free transfer is seemingly on the cards, but they also put forward the idea that Milan could move for him in January.

The paper claimed that Torino would obviously ask for a cash sum and Milan do not intend to shell out lots, so Tommaso Pogeba may become key as an option to buy could be included in a new loan deal to get the Belotti operation over the line.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference on the eve of the trip to the San Siro to face Milan, Juric spoke about the future of his captain Belotti and definitively ruled out the possibility of a January exit.

  1. Belloti seems a good option. With Zlatan retiring in June, we will need a striker along with Giroud.
    Milan is not in the best shape financially, so we can’t spend so much on Vlaovic, who is on demand.
    Plus Belloti is Italian.

    1. We are in great shape Financially now. FFP restrictions lifted in 2022 and we are debt free. Now we will see off Elliott spend some $$$ – not go crazy but finally buy a real striker – Vlahovic. Belotti is gone if that is all we can do esp on a free – but IMO he’s not world class.

  2. Belotti is a good option, as long as they leave Pobega out of any deals. We need him next season. Don’t make any new mistake of selling high potential players.

  3. I think Belotti will become a beast playing for his favorite team. And with better assistants like Leao and Diaz he will score even more.
