Tuttosport: Mutual termination being considered for out of favour Milan duo

By Ben Dixon -

According to reports from this morning, AC Milan are eyeing up the possibility of terminating the contracts of players they may not be able to sell, including one player they valued at €5 million in January.

Departing players are as important in the mercato as the arrivals, especially in terms of wage expenditure, and Milan are facing the prospect of termination for some players who are not receiving interest.

As reports from Tuttosport (via Milan News) suggest, Fode Ballo Toure and Divock Origi will not be part of Paulo Fonseca’s side, and the instructions from the club are for their agents to find new clubs. However, another avenue is also being looked into.

If a new club cannot be found for purchase, the Rossoneri may look to reach a mutual termination of the duo’s contracts to get their wages off of the books, given there is a need for extra funds in the budget.

For example, Origi is reported to earn around €4m per season, and with two years left on his contract, it will cost the club €8m over the next two seasons to keep him. Alternatively, Milan may look to reach a settlement with the Belgian for a lesser fee.

    1. They would just be eating the minutes of the players who actually have a future. They could be the waterboys for the U23.

  1. Our yearly maintenance cost for u23 club is about 12m. Just their salary and tax (5.5m salary and around 2m tax) is more than half the cost of the entire u23 club… And they will reduce playing time for other young players.

    Better let them go.

  2. My word in a world of crazy transfers, signing Origi on 4m per year must be one of the all time worst!

    Some people here claimed he would score 20 goals, lol. He has never been prolific and often been injured and always happy to sit on the bench and pick up a pay check. Disaster

    1. He had a won everything and scored at every level so it wasn’t the most mind boggling of transfers.

      At least we signed a player in a position we needed filling. As opposed to last summer’s 3 box to box midfielders….

      1. I’m sorry but there is no defending that signing. We got exactly what everyone knew he was.

        Anyway, I’m not pointing fingers, not sure whose call he was, but it sure was a bad one

        1. honestly at that time it didn’t look like such a bad deal. Sure the dude scores pretty much in the single digits every single year, but even the most pessimistic couldn’t have thought that a player coming from Liverpool who played in every major competition and who was for free would be such a catastrophe.
          Now we know how we got him for free. But the 4M€ and 4 years contract were ridiculous.

    2. He was brought in due to his knack for late goals,/ goals off the bench and in cup competitions as he was known for at Pool. None of that panned out the way it was intended.

      1. Because ppl love to attach everything negative with Maldini…it brings them joy. As if to say, “see here ..” It boggles my mind. I wonder if these ppl ever saw the legend at for our club. Notice all these Theo articles, no one says the opposite. Hmmm ‘Theo…must be one of Maldini’s masterstrokes’. But nah, can’t have that can we

  3. To think Theo makes as much as Origi…. That decision was just DENSE! by the way, made by the same person who brought both in… LOL!!!
