Tuttosport: Milan are interested in Real Madrid’s Guler but not a Brahim-style deal

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan do hold an interest in signing Arda Guler from Real Madrid this summer but the Rossoneri do not want to use a similar style of deal to the one that saw Brahim Diaz spend three years at the club.

As has been reported by Tuttosport (via Milan News), the Rossoneri are still keen on bringing the Turkish attacker to the club at some stage but only on their own terms.

Milan had Brahim Diaz at the club for three seasons and he proved to be a very important player, but it was essentially a three-year loan deal and then Milan had to let him return to the Spanish capital, leaving a gap in the squad.

If Milan were to take Guler, who has featured very fleetingly for Real Madrid this season, then they would want an option to purchase him at the end of any loan deal.

The issue is that the redemption fee would almost certainly be much higher than the €22m that Real Madrid wanted for Milan to get Brahim on a permanent deal last summer.

Guler’s lack of minutes has been down to a serious injury that he suffered shortly after arriving in Spain, and then the established set of attackers that Carlo Ancelotti ended up trusting whilst Guler was recovering.

  1. Why we always want injury prone players ? It’s like they fall in love if they know he had a serious injury before

    1. Because if Güler wasn’t injured we’d never be able to go for him. If fully fit then Milan would be oriced out already. But because of his injury, Milan actually can be in the running for him and, if he can be healthy at Milan like Pulisic, then it is a bargain!

  2. The player and his reps are fools for joining Madrid.
    What did they think would happen?
    This summer Mbappe and Endrick are arriving lol.

    If Milan are interested in him, they should make 1 firm offer.
    20m (the same Madrid paid minus amortisation of 1 year of a 6 year deal) = 16.66m
    It sounds like the kid is desperate to leave, so that’s an advantage.
    No buy back options and no sell on %

    Otherwise move on

    1. haha, turk is not a race ;)… and just because Dollaruma left doesn’t mean that we should not get another Italian player in the team either …

      That said, I understand what you mean.

  3. The Brahim deal was not a bad one, it was 3 years. Most players struggle to play in Milan in that time frame, we got a lot out.

    But I agree with posters above, with Madrid getting absolutely stacked this summer (as if they needed it), he is best moving somewhere else and probably not for a ton of $.

    1. I didn’t realize Brahim was $22m.

      I’d rather have him than RLC as an AM.

      I don’t think home leaving was all $. Rather I think it might have been all the 433 plans that don’t seem to have come to much. Would be terrible to think we lost such a player due to a poorly considered tactical change.
