Andrea Poli seems close to leaving Milan with the Rossoneri pocketing €2-3m.

Poli has been at Milan since 2013 but last season he didn’t find too much space under Montella, playing less than 400 minutes throughout the campaign.

As reported by this morning’s edition of the Bologna-based newspaper il Resto del Carlino, Roberto Donadoni’s side wants the midfielder and Milan have given the green light for the sale of Poli; the deal would be worth €2-3 million.

The newspaper wrote that today there would be a meeting between Bologna’s director of sport Riccardo Bigon and Poli’s agent Giovanni Branchini, but there are still no updates regarding that. In any case, Bologna are said to be offering Poli a three-year deal worth €700k per season.

Poli would reportedly be offered the option to move to the MLS when his Bologna contract expires, as the owner of Bologna is the same one as of Montreal Impact. Poli will be turning 28 in September.


  1. This is good for both Poli and Milan. Despite his limited abilities Poli always fought hard on the field and always acted professional. He will not find the space with the new Milan so going to Bologna makes sense. I am sure he will also be able to contribute with Bologna.

    • Hahaha… I must say atala you have a great way of putting things. . I would of just put the word very infront of limited but oh well … good blend of cruel and nice ..haha .. Cudnt of said it better 🙂

  2. montella needed to close a game when 2 men down, he brought a certain limited player to finish off the game. That limited player played with an existing injury. That player ran more miles than those who had been on the field since the beginning on the match. Very limited indeed! Other player would not break in a sweat for Milan even if their lives depended on it. I will miss him, when he just came he was a late “arriver” in the box too. In a single match he got Milan 2 penalties! So much for pasalic coming late into the box. Poli…been there..done that

  3. Poli is very underrated, he knows how to break play and win balls back, with Europa league for us next season, we need depth, I will keep him and sell Sosa cos Sosa is like palleta, he gets too many red cards and yellow cards,plus Sosa is 31 and poli is 28, we know we need to buy quality players but let’s not forget some of the players we have, poli is very dedicated whenever he is on the pitch, he plays so hard for the love of Milan,pls keep him.

    • Really? No wonder he played more matches than any first team member. Wait…. Which coach has really found Poli very useful? You guys are a bunch of sentimental fanboys. I didn’t even know Milan could get 500k for Poli.

      • Poli has got a fighting spirit in him, and works tirelessly… I’d prefer we keep and let go of bertolacci

  4. I would not sell Poli too! I would rather sell Sosa who is older. I also like poli’s fighting spirit…He is one of d few players u can play when u are a man down n still play as if u’re 11.

  5. I cant wait for Poli deal to be completed with Bologna, i think he had done enough in Rossoneri’s Jersey, He cant get playing time Milan any longer so he neds that deal to help his career… i wish him best of luck….

  6. Comment: I wud HV love poli to stay cos Milan will b playing so many competition come next season in case of injury to any 1st team player he can come in n add dept to d midfield, he’s like a Gattuso in d making BT never get enough playing time, BT anytime he comes up he always prove hm self. I rep the rossoneri.
