Tuttosport: Milan happy to sell defender for €30m+ to finance €43m double signing

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could sacrifice a key player in order to finance their incoming signings this summer, according to a report.

According to what Tuttosport are reporting (via MilanLive), Milan could be forced to sacrifice even one or more players to actively reinvest on the incoming market, as further liquidity is urgently needed.

One of the players put forward by the paper is centre-back Alessio Romagnoli, who has been sidelined since the arrival of Fikayo Tomori in January, and the Englishman appears to be a player that the Rossoneri are intent on keeping.

The exit of Romagnoli is not to be excluded for one simple reason: his contract will expire in June 2022 and his agent Mino Raiola has already informed Milan that he is expecting a significant increase compared to the current €3.5m net per season he earns.

Romagnoli has lost his starting position and, has a contract that is difficult to renew and is in his prime years, but the Rossoneri will only listen to offers of over €30m. Any proceeds will be used to finance the permanent signings of Tomori (€28m) and Sandro Tonali (€15m).

  1. Calabria, and Conti, both had very bad seasons at 2019-20. Now look what a good season Calabria is having, injuries aside. Romagnoli has been good, except for this season. shouldn’t he deserve an opportunity? this season is hard for everybody, we are living in a global pandemic, and we are throwing him below the bus for this season? what he has done before don’t matter?
    And if the team let him go, the options for centerback would be Kjaer, Tomori, and Gabbia, only 3 defenders, when a world class team should have minimum 4, ideally 5. And let’s remember that Kjaer is going to be 33 by the end of next season, and Gabbia still lacks experience.
    And this article claims that by selling Romagnoli that money is to help on paying Tomori and Tonali transfers, so it means that selling Romagnoli does not necessarily means that the money would be use for a replacement.
