Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a real target for the Milan attack, who could have a meeting with the player’s agent / father in the coming days.

Fassone said that after signing Andrea Conti, Milan will turn to selling players and then see how to spend the remaining of their budget, and it seems that they are considering using it for Aubameyang.

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky and Alfredo Pedullà of Sportitalia last night (and more outlets this morning), the Gabonese is more than just a dream for the Rossoneri management and they are going to make an effort to sign him before re-shifting focus to Fiorentina’s Nikola Kalinić, who at the moment, is put on stand-by (Viola keep demanding €30m).

Di Marzio reports that Milan are willing to put on the table €8 million per season for Auba and it’s possible that in the coming days there will be a meeting with his agent / father to discuss a move and try to bridge the gap between what Milan offer and the player’s demand of €11-12 million yearly.

The 28-year-old, who grew up in Milan’s youth sector, holds an offer from Tianjin Quanjian F.C, and with the Chinese market closing on the 15th of July, Pedullà expects Aubameyang to give them an answer by Monday. If he doesn’t accept it, then the possibility of joining Milan will be even more real, as Di Marzio suggests that the player has no offers in England or Spain, but wants to leave.

“For the moment, we assume that Aubameyang is staying,” Dortmund director of sport Michael Zorc said on Friday. “We agree with him that we are open to dialogue, but we’ll only wait for a certain amount of time.” It’s being suggested that Borussia are looking to pocket €80m from his sale.

Milan have already spent a significant amount of money this summer but La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that new President Yonghong Li is ready to provide extra budget for this mercato.

my take on dis is that, auba is too expensive for 80m and I dont think milan should buy any player for 80m at dis point in time…I also think we have bacca, lapa, silva, niang, borini as stikers…at d moment our concern shld be MF players….if I have 80m, I’ll rather buy 2 of fabregas, isco or james rodriguez….if u have a very good MF, im sure bacca and silva can deliver the goals…den when we qualify for UCL, we can think of a gud striker, maybe belotti would have matured…and i still think its dangerous to have dollaruma… Read more »

I totally agree, plus he is 28 years old so 80m for 28 yo is crazy. Personally I like Bacca but he needs to have deliveries coming his way.

Andre Silva looks weak and is unproven. He was easily pushed around by the Chilean defenders which are a good foot shorter than Italians in Serie A. Bacca most likely is out the door. I would like to see him stay but I have a feeling if he did they would bench him for Silva and he would get limited playing time (which he seems to require minutes to get into a groove). I agree 80m is pricey. I would rather see Ibra on the team with some experience and a high salary. Even with a rehabbed knee I think… Read more »

Signor milan

Auba is good but he is expensive at €80 milion because of age. €60 milion is ok for him

Its a no go from me….just too expensive. And is a former AC Milan player…..the in thing in modern day football. Agent’s dream.

Still a lot of dead weight in the team
Milan’s current roster looks like this:

Goalkeepers: Donnarumma, Gabriel, Storari.

Defenders: Abate, Antonelli, Calabria, Conti, De Sciglio, Felicioli, Gustavo Gomez, Paletta, Musacchio, Ricardo Rodriguez, Romagnoli, Simic, Vangioni, Vergara Zapata.

Midfielders: Bertolacci, Bonaventura, Calhanoglu, Kessie, Locatelli, Jose Mauri, Montolivo, Sosa.

Attackers: Bacca, Borini, Cutrone, Lapadula, Niang, Andre Silva, Suso, Zigoni.

They said they want to cut/sell players after training camp. There still is much time on the transfer window, we have been very active in acquiring players so Montella gets a full preseason. But look to see that dead weight cut adrift.

Bacca lapa niang mauri berto vangioni de sciglio r all leaving for whatever price or loan so it doesn’t matter wages r off. Aubameyang biglia we will be ready for serie a n europe

Ofc it is a no no for so many of you in comments I see.
You would rather spend the cash on someone who is not a proven goal machine (Silva) and someone who never scores (Borini) and a free kick kid rather than someone who has been consistently scoring loads of goals for last few seasons.
Great logic.
Auba could compete with Dybala and Higuain.

Bad work from fasobelli to spend without efficiency. Just like it was for shinter.

Aubumenyang is coming to Milan and morata should go to China while Chelsea should buy James. All I know is that Juventus Napoli and Roma are in trouble this season and forever
