Tuttosport: Milan looking for capital gains from three potential sales then will reinvest funds

By Oliver Fisher -

Although a lot of the attention at the moment is on potential reinforcements, AC Milan are also considering some sales to raise funds.

According to Tuttosport (via MilanNews), the management know it is necessary to try and raise money from those players who do not fit into Stefano Pioli’s plans. Jens Petter Hauge is one of those who is not deemed unsellable, and both Eintracht Frankfurt and Wolfsburg have come forward.

It will take around €12-14m for Milan to sell as they want to earn as much as possible from the sale of the young winger. The watchword is capital gain, like the one that could be obtained from the sale of Tommaso Pobega, a product of the Milan youth sector.

Samu Castillejo is being followed by Real Betis meanwhile but it will be hard to make a capital gain from his exit, especially because the Andalusian club have not gone beyond mere appreciation. Milan are waiting for concrete and satisfactory offers and have no intention of selling off their players or even granting discounts.

If sales do occur, it will be to flesh out the budget and make room in the team to accommodate players that are more functional to the coach’s ideas.

  1. What I cannot comprehend is that Milan needs a new midfielder and they’ve gotten Pobega back from loan stint where he scored 6 goals and gave 3 assists in only 20 Serie A matches. Kessie was the only midfielder in the team to get better stats and almost all of his goals were from penalties.

    So… Milan can’t wait to get rid of Pobega (aka. the next Locatelli) and they will do it underpriced – as usual. They’ll be happy to get 10-15M€ for him and then they will spend that money (+ some more) on a never-heard Ligue 3 player who doesn’t speak the language, don’t know Italian culture and still lives with his parents in his home town where everything is safe and familiar. Then Pioli is clueluess why that midfielder can’t perform and Milan is forced to play Krunic everywhere every day.

    So… Maldini & co: Why can’t you just stick with Pobega who has already proved himself to be good enough for Serie A and doesn’t cost a penny to get as you already own him?

    1. While I agree with much of what you said, I would be remiss if I didn’t remind everyone that he played for a fairly poor team last season and didn’t start for many games instead coming off the bench. I agree that he should be given a chance or loaned out, it makes sense that the players with the most value from a selling perspective would be the ones that most fans would want to keep. Nobody is willing to pay good money for a team’s trash (Krunic, Castillejo, etc.)
