Dybala remains in the background, De Ketelaere is the forbidden dream, but first we need exits
FROM ZIYECH TO RENATO SANCHES: AC MILAN TESTS THE DECISIVE LUNGE
The AC Milan transfer market will kick off on Monday and the first week of action looks as if it can already be very important. In Maldini and Massara’s agenda there are two deals to be closed as soon as possible: the talks with Chelsea for Ziyech are more than open, with the player who has already given his green light to the transfer to the Rossoneri and the need, now, to find the right formula with Londoners. It is on the basis of a loan that Milan would like to right while the Blues are aiming to grant with a redemption obligation. The parties are not far away also because the common will is to get to the white smoke. The other front concerns Renato Sanches. Everything had been done with the Portuguese for some time, but the inclusion of the PSG has certainly complicated the negotiation. Lille assures that they have not received concrete offers from the Parisians for the player who, however, has a proposal from the French champions in hand that has inevitably blown up the old agreement with Milan on the engagement. Maldini and Massara’s will remains to bring Sanches to Milan and in the next few days an upward offer is likely to convince him to choose Milan.
DYBALA AND THE DREAM OF KETELAERE
The strong pressure for Ziyech (the alternative could always be Noa Lang) does not affect the Rossoneri’s race to the attacking midfielder. We talked about Dybala separately, the rumors about De Ketelaere have instead died down slightly in the last few days. This does not at all mean that Milan have let go. The Bruges player, for whom an investment of 30-35 million is needed, remains at the top of the list of Maldini and Massara who are convinced he is an absolute talent. Budget in hand, however, in order to put the right offer on the plate, you probably need at least one sale. Saelemaekers (or Messias, despite the ransom) and Rebic remain the main suspects to leave Milan but at the moment there are still no concrete offers for either of them. As the market goes, it is possible that serious expressions of interest will arrive, in the meantime the De Ketelaere affair remains in the background. Attention also to the other outings that could bring money or free up space in the wages list: from Caldara, which La Spezia likes, to Gabbia (Samp) up to Bakayoko, for which a solution will be sought with Chelsea to resolve the two-year loan in advance.
SESKO’S AGENT: “I TALKED ABOUT IT WITH MALDINI, HE KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM”
Benjamin Sesko is more than an idea for the Milan attack. Elvis Basanovic, agent of the young center forward, spoke of the meeting with Paolo Maldini a few days ago at Casa Milan in Salzburg24: “I talked to Paolo Maldini about many things. Obviously the name Benjamin Sesko also came out. He knows him very well. , he knows everything about him. In the next few years he will be one of the best strikers in Europe. “
DOUGLAS LUIZ MOVES AWAY, BUT SANCHES IS NOT LOST YET
Despite the contacts of the last few hours with his entourage, negative news arrives about AC Milan’s run-up to Douglas Luiz. Identified as an alternative to Renato Sanches, first choice ended up in the crosshairs of PSG (which offers a much higher salary than that proposed by Maldini and Massara), the Brazilian midfielder of Aston Villa seems determined to stay another year in the Premier League and then go out to zero parameter in June 2023. Meanwhile, attention to the Portuguese side of Lille because, having resolved the contractual flaws of Maldini and Massara, the track could reopen since, as explained by the French club’s number one, the Parisians have not yet made any official offers.
FIORENTINA: THE NAME OF SIMON KJAER COMES UP FOR DEFENSE
The last name for Fiorentina’s defense is Simon Kjaer. According to La Nazione, the expert Milan defender is one of the central players on which the Viola club has taken information in the event that Milenkovic leaves. The 33-year-old has already returned to the field with his Danish national team after a serious knee injury, but his conditions are all to be verified, such as Milan’s willingness to open negotiations.
OFFICIAL THE EXTENSION OF MIRANTE
As expected, Mirante confirmed: “AC Milan announces that it has exercised the option right for the extension of Antonio Mirante’s contract until 30 June 2023”.
OFFICIAL THE REDEMPTION OF FLORENZI
Alessandro Florenzi is to all intents and purposes an AC Milan player: “AC Milan is pleased to announce that it has definitively acquired Alessandro Florenzi’s sports performances from AS Roma. The defender has signed a contract with the Club until 30 June 2025. Alessandro, after having graduated as Italian Champion with Milan last season, collecting 30 appearances and 2 goals, will continue to wear the Rossoneri jersey number 25 “.
