Tuttosport: Milan have two reservations about Ilicic as Atalanta ask for €8-10m

By Isak Möller -

Hakan Calhanoglu decided to leave and Milan are thus looking for a new playmaker on the market. Several names have been mentioned in recent weeks, including that of Josip Ilicic, who could become a real opportunity. 

According to today’s edition of Tuttosport, as cited by MilanNews, the Rossoneri appreciate the player a lot for his technique and quality. In addition, he wouldn’t need time to adapt to Serie A and could be used straight away.

However, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have two reservations about Ilicic: he’s currently 33-years-old and had some physical problem last season. Furthermore, he didn’t get as much playing time, perhaps an indication of his status.

Above all, though, the main worry concerns the €8-10m price tag Atalanta have slapped on the Slovenian. Milan could perhaps invest around €5m in the player, but doubling that amount would change the evaluations of the signing for sure.

    The age argument to me , is British in nature where they play football at 9 million miles an hour and once they lose their speed ,they are finished

    , at 8 to 10 million, illic would be the transfer bargain or the decade in the Italian league, even though he is 33, Milan lost the league last season because , out side rebic on the left, hakan chananoglu in the middle, there was no other constant source of magic , imagine if they had illic on the right wing , BUY ILLIC NOW BEFORE ATALANTA CHANGE THEIR MIND , 8 million is nothing in this transfer market
