Tuttosport: Difficulties predicted in renewal of striker with €100m clause – Milan’s stance outlined

By Oliver Fisher -

There are some obstacles regarding a potential new contract for Andrea Belotti and Milan are monitoring the situation, a report claims.

Belotti has a contract expiring in June 2022 and therefore Torino find themselves in a situation where they must seriously consider selling if they cannot get him to sign the renewal.

According to Tuttosport this morning (via MilanLive), there are several clubs both in Italy and abroad that are interested in the player and are ready to step forward in the summer window, with Milan among them.

Torino president Urbano Cairo would have to offer a salary increase to about €3.5m net per season plus bonuses, while Belotti currently receives a salary of €2m net plus bonuses. It will be necessary to see if Torino will be willing to offer him a salary worthy of a star forward, as well as a serious project.

The paper adds that it is also difficult to imagine Belotti will accept that his release clause of €100m valid for foreign countries remains in a new deal.

As for Milan, Tuttosport explains that the club would no longer offer the player what they might have two or three years ago in terms of wages, even if qualification to the Champions League could possibly allow them to be more relaxed in terms of budget.

Milan will make their assessments at the end of the season but are monitoring Belotti. It will be necessary to see what the future holds for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mario Mandzukic plus the price tag that Torino have set.

    No, thank you. We do not need Belotti.

      I’d say yes we do. Ibra can’t be the magician forever, age will hit hard. And Mandzukic is clearly a stop gap not the striker for the next 5 years. Belotti can be that, since we realistically don’t have the budget to go for a top tier superstar like Haaland or Mbappe.

      Belotti is proven serie a quality, we’ll see if he can be a success at UCL level but certainly competing for the league title he’s an asset. And with his contract running down we’ll get him for a discount. Overall I’d say a solid signing if we lock him in.
