Tuttosport: LaLiga side ready to put forward bid for Milan winger after €18m sale

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan still have a chance of offloading Samu Castillejo before the transfer window is closed, according to the latest reports.

According to Tuttosport (via MilanLive) it seems there is a distinct chance that Milan will sell Castillejo to the highest bidder between now and August 31 and a LaLiga club are preparing an offer. Getafe are the club who are keen on signing the right winger, and in recent weeks they tested the ground regarding the 26-year-old.

Now, the Madrid-based club are about to collect a large sum from the possible sale of full-back Marc Cucurella to Premier League side Brighton, who are ready to invest the €18m release clause to secure the left-sided player. Cucurella’s farewell would thus guarantee the possibility for Getafe to move for Castillejo in the next few days and produce the offer of €8m that the Rossoneri want to avoid a loss.

If Castillejo were to really leave, the management could also think of another signing to replace him on the right side.

    pls get Berardi. If Fiorentina are going him. we would obviously be a better choice

        Guys i tried to make a post previously where i linked to all current 2021-2022 serie a transfers according to transfermarkt that i assume apparently wasnt allowed to be put up here but it showed that milan icurrently has 55 mil in deficit in this transfer window in combined buys and sales whereas fiorentina currently only has a deficit of less than 5 mil so it actually makes sense that they have more room to make a buy of this size than we currently are available to do.

          Martin, children don’t understand finance. I also want to see how this goes for Fiorentina in the long run, since they won’t finish top 4. That being said they do have a huge asset in Vlahovic, so they could (and will) sell him to balance the books next summer. And when their fans cry about the sale, the Commiso can point to the purchases of Gonzalez and Berardi and say “we need to pay for this”.

          1. Martin Bernhard says:

            Well lets see if it actually mounts to something but yeah its indeed difficult to persuade people if they isnt interessted or has no clue about ffp. i’ll add something though thati forgot mentioning about earlier and that is that fiorentina actually has 40 mil coming next year for the sale from chiesa that will have to be paid by then so that ammount of money should sort this potential deal out in itself but i cant really imagine that berradi willingly joining them as the club isnt really a step up the latter for him,

          2. Vero Rossonero says:

            Martin, re Chiesa, exactly. Fiorentina has funds because they sold/sell stars. Kids don’t understand that this and say “why can’t Milan buy Berardi?”. If we sell Kessie or Bennacer we can buy Berardi no problem…

  2. Martin Bernhard says:

    Overall i agree that we deffently would be the better choice but milans spending in this transfer window without selling much means we have a current loss of 55 mil whereas fiorentina has a loss of around 5 mil.
