Mediaset: Zaniolo willing to make salary concession to push through Milan move

By Oliver Fisher -

Nicolo Zaniolo is willing to make a concession on his salary in order to try and push through a move to AC Milan, a report claims.

According to what was reported by Claudio Raimondi of SportMediaset (via MilanNews), Zaniolo wants to join Milan so much so that he would be willing to maintain the same salary he gets now with Roma – that is approximately €2m net per season – to push the move through.

For context, he was asking Roma for around €3.5m net per year during negotiations for a potential renewal with Roma, and the significance is that the saving on salary could allow Milan to slightly raise their bid to Roma.

However, the Giallorossi remain firm on their position which is that they are asking for an obligation to buy as part of any loan deal which would be triggered on his first appearance and not on qualifying for the Champions League as per Milan’s proposal.

    1. well he is meant as a rw first and am second imao.. still against it but at least its cheap. Medium risk high reward transfer if he’s as good as fanboys dream he is..

      1. Still against it too. Kind of. If the two options are:
        A) fine as we are and
        B) loan(+buy) Zaniolo…

        Well, then I’ll choose B. Staying put means no UCL next season. No UCL means no Leao, no Maignan, no Bennacer, no Hernandez.

  1. Poli will bench him and waste $2m a year. Poli takes 2 years to warm up new players, 3rd year to get them hot and finally 4th year leave for free

  2. To be considered as a top team you have to invest or else you will be left behind. Zaniolo is a good player once he remains healthy and an upgrade on the two right wingers there now. Just get the deal done for heaven’s sake.

  3. I think this would be dum from the managment to sign a player who’s contract is expiring for a loan with an abligation to buy in the summer for TWENTY MILLION. If this happens # MALDINI and CO OUT
