CorSera: Milan counting on Ibrahimovic effect to win €40m Vlahovic race next summer

By Oliver Fisher -

Milan have not given up on their hopes of signing Dusan Vlahovic and hope Zlatan Ibrahimovic can play his part in luring the Fiorentina star, a report claims.

According to this morning’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), Vlahovic will leave Fiorentina soon as he has decided not to renew his contract with La Viola that expires in 2023. He could depart next June or even in January, but the Serbia international is in no hurry to move, and would even prefer to do it in the summer.

A number of top European clubs are interested such as Bayern Munich, PSG, Atletico Madrid, Tottenham, Manchester City and Arsenal interested. However, the Serbian national team coach has encouraged him to stay in Italy and Vlahovic also seems to think the same way, with Juventus planning a bid.

The paper adds to ‘beware of Milan’ as even though Rossoneri have not made a move for now, they can count on Vlahovic’s desire to play for a year with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has always been his idol. La Viola would like €70m, while in June they would collect €40m, but it is worth bearing in mind they also want to sign Borja Mayoral and Domenico Berardi so need funds.

  1. I would like some clarification on this, “while in June they would collect €40m” does this mean that there is some kind of clause or something in regard of his price by that date because regardless of his contract situation it seems higly speculative to believe that fiorentina would go from demands in the vicinity of 60-70 mil euros to allmost half in a matter of 5 months when most of europe will still come knocking on the door in a bidding war.

    1. There is no clause or anything but if you can read and you managed to read the article you maybe could have understood that the player has an expiring contract so they will have to sell him next year to get any money. And he wants to stay in Italy, so how many clubs do you think will pay 70M euros to get him? No one has that money, Fiorentina can’t risk to lose a player for 0 a year later or for 10-20M in January 2022. If he picks to stay in Italy, it will not be 60M, or it will be divided into 4-5 seasons, something like Locatelli purchase by Juventus.

      1. crorossonero obviously i can read so no need to be condecending with me and as you can see oliver who posted the article actually agreed so maybe you missed the point and lacks some reading comphrehension yourself because whether vlahovic wants to stay seems pretty speculative to begin with. Add to that if you want to believe speculations then a few days ago there was also an article that speculated in that his prefered move would be juventus. Add to that inter has also shown interest in the player and so has napoli so even if he were to stay in italy surely there could still be a bidding war atleast if some of thsoe clubs offload some of their players.

  2. We should spare no expense to sign Vlahovic. PERIOD. He is the ideal player to replace Ibra and is worth the 50M-60M he will fetch this summer. It’s simple, if he wants to stay in Italy Italian teams will get a slight discount (50M-60M)since it’s the last year of his deal. If not, Foreign teams will gladly pay full asking price (70M). Regardless IMO – we should sign him wether it’s 50 or 70M – he is that good and is only 21 years old.

    1. Juro im not against or ever has been against getting him but the problem is will the club then be able to afford afford to cover other areas because milan both has obligations in regard of other contracts and we will still need to make other reinforcements and unless the management actually makes 100 mil available in the transfer window then i have my doubts that we will see vlahovic in milan this time around.
