Tuttosport: Torino keen on Krunic again – latest on his future from new deal to striker swap

By Oliver Fisher -

Another AC Milan midfielder is in the sights of Torino and they have a plan to try and negotiate a deal, according to a report.

According to this morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Torino have held talks with the Milan management during which they tried to convince Milan to include an option to buy in the current dry loan agreement for Tommaso Pobega, but they were met with the firm will of the Rossoneri to get the player back next summer.

During the talks with Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara however, the Granata also hinted at a rekindling of their interest in utility midfielder Rade Krunic. Once again though Milan hold him in high regard which could lead to a renewal of his contract.

Nonetheless, il Toro have a plan: they could try and convince the Diavolo by offering striker Andrea Belotti as a counterpart in January, with his contract expiring next June.

    I don’t see a downside in that deal. Even if Belotti does nothing, it’ll be about the same impact Krunic has right now.

      Indeed. How could Belotti possibly ever have a smaller impact than Krunic?

    Krunic should be respected for the work he does as a utility squad player but if torino seriously would suggest a swap between belotti and krunic milan would be morons not jumping such proposal. Belotti would be an instant success and a potential Capocannoniere for the next 5 years . We all know how much he wants to join us but i have my question marks if krunic or even torino would accept such kind deal.

    Many great attackers who came to Milan did not do well. That is because very often, our play lacks ideas. We take a very long time to build an attack and by that time our forwards will be well taken care of.

    Isn’t Belotti joining us next summer for free? Why to give up a player for him?

    1. Martin Bernhard says:

      Because having belotti, iba and giroud at our disposal immediately could heavily reinforce our scudetto hopes and next year we will have both adli, pobega + potential replacement for kessie at our hands so i have a hard time seeing krunic staying for the long run anyways.
