Pellegatti: Milan unlikely to sign Botman, Milenkovic or Christensen – the reasons

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are currently unlikely to sign any of the targets that have been heavily linked for the centre-back position, a report claims.

In his latest column for MilanNews, journalist Carlo Pellegatti has taken stock of Milan’s pursuit of a new defender, suggesting that a swap deal involving Tommaso Pobega and Bremer could be a win-win for both Milan and Torino if it were to go ahead.

Looking at the other targets who Milan have been mentioned as taking a liking to, Sven Botman is a player who the management are certainly big admirers of but Milan are not willing to pay Lille the €30m they are currently demanding for the Dutchman.

Even the Nikola Milenkovic track does not seem a very hot one despite what some papers are saying, while Andreas Christensen is a target and his contract is due to expire in 2022, but a possible renewal until 2026 is on the cards that would rule Milan out.

  1. Milan are so cheap. It’s really pathetic. Look at their roster compared to Inter or even Napoli, it’s not even close. How do they expect to compete. Milan’s transfer strategy is to go with the cheapest available option and hope they get lucky. Zlatan deserves better than to spend his last years playing for a team that won’t surround him with players to compete.

    1. Agree, cheap and make wrong decition to play kessie than give minutes to pobega. I think milan should give big investment to milan lab, to many injured player, remember when we had pancaro, favalli, stam, cafu with good fitnes

  2. Zlatan gets the mist of the team and no other team at this level would sign him.

    Milan spend way more than Inter last year even though Inter sold 2 of their best players for 170 total plus Inter has higher revenues than us.

    You may believe Zlatan is altruist and money plays no role in football – but reality is different.

    We can manage with current CBs till summer. Most here agree better to save money for striker. And there are several CBs whose deals end up in 23 so will be a bargain in summer anyway.

    Only Real, PSG, City Chelsea and United do not have to be conscious about money (now Newcastle too)

      1. Ok. .. keep saying that as they are about to win their second straight Scudetto. As long as the Milan’s American shareholders make money I guess you’re happy with that.

    1. They cannot manage with the CB pairing they have now. Not if they want to win the Scudetto. Romagnoli is not nearly good enough. And just imagine if one of them gets injured, which seems to happen with every Milan player.
      Yes, Inter did make a lot of money selling Lukaku and Hakimi. Someone tell Milan management that they can do that too. I don’t think they are aware. They just let all of their best players leave for free. ( Donnarumma, Calhanoglu, Kessie). Maybe if they got some money from those guys they could’ve put a decent team together this season.
      Their biggest weakness from last season was the right wing and they are still starting Saelemakers. What other top team would he even see the field on?
      They lost their starting #10 and didn’t replace him at all. The backup Diaz is now starting, and they have no backup for him. This is not what a serious team does.

  3. Well said maldini and massara were on the trasfers job(sry if i am wrong) and they should have got money donaroma should have worth so muchhh he was best keeper in serie a but 0 money not even a cent. Calhanoglu yo what we should have made 90 to 100 mil (sry if i am wrong)
