  1. Yes best wishes Sales

    concerning however all of our exists are low cost loans with NO obligations to buy…

    500K loan for Sales and no obligation to buy? Same with all the other exists? Zero obligations.

    Hope they all do well and we make some $$ next season but if we don’t and those options are not picked up we are in a bit of a mess as their value will only plummet further…

    Not so easy to sell players I guess.

  2. Absolutely. I’ll root for him because I do like him (despite the fact that I’ve been BEGGING for Milan to upgrade RW with him/Messias being so subpar and inconsistent); and also selfishly for Milan — it would be great if he impresses at Bologna so that they will end up paying us that 10 million next summer!

  3. I wish him the best, perhaps a loan should have been done earlier but he does need more minutes to become a more reliable player. I did see improvement in his game each year he was with Milan however and I am upset to see him leave. No doubt he gave his all when he was on the pitch, regularly dropped back to help with defense and linked up well with whoever he was playing with. Just my opinion but I thought he was miles better than Messias and a promising player to keep long-term especially if he is a marginal cost. Similar to Kalulu who we seem to put on the selling block despite being a lower cost, young acquisition who have made strong contributions to the team when filling in for more experienced players who were above them in the order.
