Tuttosport: Milan full-back rejects Turkey move in bid to fight for spot

By Oliver Fisher -

Some clubs have come forward and expressed an interest in signing Fode Ballo-Toure from AC Milan but he seems determined to reject them, a report claims.

According to what Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Ballo-Tourè is among the players who could be allowed to leave Milan in the summer mercato. The Senegalese full-back got very little playing time last year and it is not only because Theo Hernandez is ahead of him, given Alessandro Florenzi and Pierre Kalulu even switched flanks to play on the left.

According to the newspaper, Ballo-Toure’s situation has attracted the attention of some Ligue 1 clubs as well as the more concrete interest of Trabzonspor. The Turkish team, however, have been rejected by the player.

That is because the former Monaco man does not want to give up on the idea of earning a role at Milan just yet, but rather instead he wishes to remain and fight for his spot in the squad.

  1. Like Joe said, he wasn’t half bad during preseason. But as everyone else stated he is competing with Theo for a spot in the team, so his chances are second to none.

    However, Kalulu started as a RB and found himself in a new role and now is making it very hard for Gabbia and even Kjær to get some minutes in. So he and the club should definitely try to put him in a different position where he would have better chances of getting some minutes in.

    Unfortunately LW is also occupied with Leao and Rebic so… fat chance of him getting any playtime there. Maybe switch sides. I mean, he is not half bad as LW, so maybe switch sides? He can’t do much worse than Saladmaker or Assias. I mean he can, but… at this point, we are becoming a bit desperate, so… why not try it?
