AC Milan have several players on loan and will thus have to make the final decisions in the summer. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara already have clear ideas about these players, a report claims.
The two directors are known for often signing players on loan with an option to buy, postponing the final payment and getting to see the player at the club first. That strategy can also lead to tough decisions, though.
As reported by today’s edition of Tuttosport (via SempreMilan), Milan have a total of €74m in buy-out clauses that will have to be triggered or left in the summer. Starting with Tiemoue Bakayoko, who arrived on a two-year loan, the clause is valued at €20m and Milan have decided to send him back (maybe even in January).
Brahim Diaz is also on a two-year loan at the club but his future is a lot more uncertain. Should the No.10 express a willingness to stay, then Milan will surely sit down with Real Madrid and try to lower the €22m clause.
The same could happen with Sergino Dest, as the €20m clause was agreed in a hurry (final days of the summer mercato). The American is no longer part of Barcelona’s plan but Milan will make their decision based on the second half of the season.
Finally, Aster Vranckx has a €12m clause and Milan will most likely exercise this, given the midfielder’s age and potential.
