Tuttosport: Milan and Atalanta could explore swap deal as part of possible Pobega move

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Atalanta could complete a swap deal this summer as the Bergamo club continue to eye Tommaso Pobega, a report claims.

As reported by Tuttosport (via PianetaMilan) this morning, Milan are interested in signing Slovenian playmaker Josip Ilicic who is all set to leave Atalanta this season because of his damaged relationship with head coach Gian Piero Gasperini.

The 33-year-old under contract with the La Dea until June 2022 and the most likely destination seems to be AC Milan, who are looking for a player in that position on the pitch. In this regard, the Turin-based newspaper does not exclude that the two clubs can enter into talks over an exchange deal.

It would feature the two aforementioned players and could see Ilicic join the Rossoneri and Pobega head to Bergamo after a successful loan spell at Spezia last season. There is likely to be a difference in valuation though that must be resolved.

    Useless deal ,if Eliot does not have the finance to run milan he should consider selling Milan to another…I see no reason why we should even consider selling pobegba raw talent at that NEVER NEVER….illicic will be a great buy at a low rate but our young players should not be involved enough of wastage of raw talent.any team that wants to buy locateli now will pay huge sum but we threw him away carelessly

    So Pobega will flourish in Atalanta for the next 5 years & will be sold for 40-50 million somewhere else, to continue playing on top level for another 5 years.

    And instead we are getting 33 year old Ilicic, who is known to be prone to depression, may not adapt at all & at best will give is 1 good season.

    Very nice, what can I say.

      I could not agree more. What a joke if we swap Poegba with Illic – a backup at best and an old player nobody wants. We are becoming an embarrassment.

        I agree…Milanisti in Italy need to riot outside the San Siro to protest the sales of our young players.

    Honestly, if I didn’t have self control, reading most Milan news these days would be enough to make me smash my phone. What kind of fuckery is this? Sell a 21 year old to get a 33 year old. This club never ceases to amaze me. I hope we don’t get embarrassed in the UCL. After years of waiting you’d expect a strong Mercato but instead see what we’re getting. I can only open my mouth in bewilderment

      Absolutely stupid..I cannot believe this lack of common sense.

  4. micah97 says:

    Stupidity again..Illicic is 34 and washed..Pobega is 21 and has a full future ahead of him with potential to become more valuable for better profit or even a Milan legend..Why are a Milan so Stupid?
