Tuttosport: Elliott Management against signing of €10m winger despite Maldini’s interest

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s owners Elliott Management have blocked the signing of Junior Messias from Crotone, according to the latest reports.

A number of sources – including Gianluca Di Marzio – have reported that the Rossoneri are considering signing Messias from Crotone this summer. The asking price is €10m and Paolo Maldini is looking for a winger to reinforce the squad before it’s too late, though it has also been linked with Samu Castillejo’s potential departure.

According to Tuttosport (via MilanNews) though, Messias is not considered a valid investment by the Rossoneri management because he is not a profile that the fund consider to be suitable for their project.

We can infer that this is due to the fact that the player is 30 years of age and is therefore not the usual profile that they would opt to go for, given their youth-led recruitment preferences. The Brazilian , therefore, should not be part of the Rossoneri’s plans.

    For once I agree with Elliot. 10m? Wow… get zaccagni for that price or faivre but not messias. This time i am thankful to elliot. Don’t waste money Maldini, you’re already wasting a bunch this market by losing gigio, hakan, and likely kessie and romagnoli now too….

      Winger. Do you know what that means? 😀 He is actually really good, I don’t think you’ve ever watched him, 3-4 times better than Castillejo.

    Would have been great to get him!! He is alot better than castillejio i think

    They should’ve kept Hauge. He’s just scored his 2nd goal in 3 games and he’s playing on the right wing. I knew it was a mistake letting him go.

      How come Pioli never tested him there. It is an area we haven’t been able to cover. I also think that we should have kept him.

        hauge been playing right wing even at his old club

        theres something wrong with pioli hating hauge
        maybe hauge winked at his wife or something

        or tackled his favourite boy krunic at field

    I agree with them but they are greedy mother fucker they are. They don’t give them enough money to invest.
    When you have player which cost 15m and they are future. They don’t make that fund available
    Maldini is stressing so much with this mother fuckers.
    They make sure because one day people will step up and they will loose so much
