Fan asks Aubameyang to return to Milan, the striker answers: “I want to but they are sleeping, what can I do?”

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, during an Instagram live chat with fans, said that he would love to return to the Rossoneri.

Nikola Kalinić appears to be the likeliest candidate to strengthen the Rossoneri attack this summer but the big dream remains Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Borussia Dortmund have seemingly closed the window on his sale after the friendly against Milan in late July, but the player – who last week said that he is happy at Dortmund and is ready to stay – still desires a return to red and black.

Yesterday the Gabonese striker did a live chat on Instagram and one Milan fan asked him to return to the club where he grew up; Auba answered in Italian: “I want to, but if they are sleeping, what can I do?”. Another fan made the same request, and the 28-year-old replied with: “I dream.”

Auba then went on to do an impression of the San Siro announcer (“and with the Number 7….”), as can be seen in the video below. Auba’s brother, Willy Aubameyang also playfully left Pierre a message during the live message: “Aubameyang come to Milan” followed by laughing emojis.

The words of Aubameyang are coming after he told Sky Sport Deutschland: “We’ll see what happens. Whatever happens will happen. It’s a difficult situation”, although there is some confusion online whether he was talking about his own future or about that of his teammate Ousmane Dembélé who is wanted by Barcelona. It’s almost unthinkable, of course, that BVB would sell both.

On Friday, Mirabelli was attending a Torino match and talked to a Granata fan. “We won’t take Belotti, don’t worry,” Mirabelli said, to which the fans replied: “Is Aubameyang better?” and Max laughed.

Yeah, auba will wear milan #7 jersey next season. Who are u kidding god?

Klum

What the media are writing is that Milan now only have 30 Million left to spend after the acquisition of Biglia and Bonucci with the latter being unexpected which interrupted Milan’s transfer budget. Bonucci was never in Fassobelli’s plan but the CB is a good buy. But otherwise Milan should have had 70 Million to spend on Aubamenyang who I believe have been the true Milan target since summer. Galliani told Auba to come back and he replied “With Pleasure”. So I’m not surprised that he would like to return so badly by saying things like that on insta. On… Read more »

Milan10

Just because milan supposedly only have 30m left doesnt mean they cant buy 70-80m rated player. Milan can make arrangement for the yearly payments through installment agreement like they did kessie. Hell, they can even put bacca in the deal.

AWE

Fassone and mirabelli in the beginning have low budget. They have to spread several player or one player only then came bonucci, so they request another budget to mr Li and he approved it.
So milan could buy another player. I believe it will be belotti (75 + niang) except cairo rejected then it will be kalinic.

Baresis Dream

How would the Media know? Only a few people know our true budget, as it should be. We get different number thrown at us by the media every minute. Only when the merkato ends we will truly know.

Ink

Well, this is what I mean about prioritizing our transfers instead of splashing the money left and right.
Just imagine if they had gone for Auba transfer instead of going for Andre Silva or Conti first.
We could still get Silva and Conti, but we should have just gone for the players we need most first.

LB, Playmaker, Winger, CB, Striker. That would have been my order of priority if I was DS. Hire me, Milan.

Baresis Dream

Yeah, you have a point. But things are not so simple. You can’t just walk into a store and buy whatever you want, whenever you want.

Personally, I would prioritize Donna first, as I’m sure Fossobelli also had in mind, but who knew what to expect there. Silva was signed really quickly (quite a bit of overpriced imo), so as not to instigate a bidding war; same for Kessie.

However, for the life of me, I still don’t know why we sold Kucka for two cents.

AdeB

Medicine after death. We have signed quality players… We need to sell Bacca, niang (he is staying as confirmed by Montella) and a few others to generate some cash. With this and in addition to whatever budget we have we can sign one or two attackers.

Suso would have been a good disposal to Tottenham but we can’t afford to lose him. We need to give our youth players a chance to grow alongside the experienced one. More can form part of this project.

Rikimaru Tenchu

Lmao. Funny thing is that we did just this but your mind can’t fathom it. We arranged Conti, Biglia, Mussachio, but some of the deals delayed as is expected with transfers. We needed a team to be ready ahead of time because we are starting earlier than other teams in italy.

Ink

Did just this, did we? 🙂
Oh my poor mind, completely missed to fathom it.
What will happen to me, I am doomed!

TrueRossoneri

Yh we did. In this mercato we’ve gotten a lb, playmakers, CBs, a winger, striker and much more. Maybe not the ones u wanted but the administration cannot buy every Milan fan’s desired target, can they?

VanBasten

latest news: football italia
milan will go for kalinic 25 + dolberg 35
as they plan to lay also the future foundation of a strike force silva-cutrone-dolberg
and get kalinic for a short term solution and a mentor for dolberg
i personaly like the idea of dolberg
he is used to play in a 433 (what montella if we like or not seems to prefer)
is tall and would be a good partner for silva

Evans

Instead of Kalinic, please MILAN should go for D.Costa of Chelsea.
The asking prices are now very close, so no need to acquire Kalinic please

tunchi

God bless you @Evans

Klum

@evans. The problem is that Costa only wants Atletico. Otherwise he would have been a better fit than Kallinic who is the last resort.

SuMa

Are you Costa in disguise? A true Milan fan will never want him because of his ethics. Will give Cutrone more chance any day above him. At least will get the return after 1-2 years.

Baresis Dream

I would take a convicted murderer to our squad if it’s gets us our goals; but that’s just me.

Bynz

What about Dolberg, I saw an article with his name on it and he could be one of the players mentioned by management that wasnt talked about in the media, I’m not for Kalinic thats for sure and Costa is trouble plus he has his eyes set on A. Madrid and thats good for me. But if Aub isnt coming then i dunno I just want the best for Milan and that is to get back in CL.

VanBasten

dolberg seems a verry good striker for his young age
he is also used to play in a 433
could be a future star

andimakmur

Why choose someone who doesn’t LOVE you? LOL
No for Costa. If we can’t sign Auba or Belotti then Kalinic is acceptable buy (in 20-25m ofc not 30m). He LOVES to join us anyway haha

Still, I want Auba to come home #Comebackmeyang

Apache

Diego doesn’t wanna go to any club except A. Madrid

Comment:I wish aubameyang play for Milan next season and I will be very great full bro…………if u can play for d team next season…. ……. . .

hencyn

I think Milan is just using kalinic to distract both Torino and Dortmund so they can reduce their asking price. Auba and belotti are the main targets. just imagine mirabelli going to watch Torino’s coppa Italia match yesterday. Milan will definitely make one final attempt for both auba and belotti .

andimakmur

70-80m for 28yo Auba is good to go in this current transfer market situation, the price is go higher and higher haha
Bring him home! haha

I prefer Auba (28yo, 80m) then Kalinic (29yo, 25m). Auba’s magnet is stronger than Kalinic in term of profit outside football IMO

Forza Milan

Anonymous

I say that Auba can make milan attacking trio one of the best he can revive the club with his wonderfull goal scoring opportunities. I think he is the right choice but if he really wants to join ac milan he doesn’t even care that milan are sleeping at this moment , he should join the club with his hands open wide for the club . Aubameyang it’s your decision but if I were you I would join ac milan

Kaka

Auba can’t pay 100mio for himself

Agni

Go all out for aubamayeng.
Get him even if it takes 80 mil. Because he will provide the finishing touch to all the transfer activity we have done so far, both on the field and off it. If he is willing to sacrifice UCL for us, we should definitely make this happen.

Earlier I thought 80 mil might be too much, but after seeing 222 mil splshed for Neymar, I know it’s worth it in today’s mercato.

andimakmur

Agreed! even Auba has skipped his training after Insta chat declaring he’d love to join Milan (http://www.football-italia.net/108100/aubameyang-skips-dortmund-training). I don’t know that is true or not or what the reason he skip the training. Good sign maybe? #Comebackmeyang

Denboy

IMO if Neymar’s worth 222m, then Aubameyang’s worth about 500m

perttu junnonaho

We must try really hard to sign young Argentinian sensational talent striker Lautaro Martinez at all cost! So we still should have the money to sign rising star striker Moussa Dembele from Dortmund as well! And last but not least, cause Biglia is injured, we must also another versatile and creative midfielder as well, who i really hope will be Jean Michael Seri from Nice!

#10

Dembele isn’t rising… he is a star already and he wants Barcelona. We already have 2 young good strikers and Locatelli will jump in for Biglia he has proven himself multiple times

andimakmur

Sorry bro, he’s talking about Celtic’s Moussa Dembele not Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele. The one who linked with Barca is Ousmane Dembele

But I will be very happy if Milan can sign one or both of them haha 🙂

PS: Bring back home Auba #Comebackmeyang

Naz

Well if that’s not a come get me plea I don’t know what is Just give Dortmund what they want already Why are the even considering Costa who doesn’t want to come and is a rotten apple anyway when they have one of the best strikers in the world practically begging them to sign him Whatever about not having enough budget left that’s only paperwork which can be arranged in installments, I seriously doubt PSG had 200 odd million just floating around to buy Naymar We’d have a goal scoring machine to rival anyone else in today’s game and I’d… Read more »

Abubakar Opeyemi

I concur

Baresis Dream

Why would Dortmund accept installments? They lose one of their best players now, someone they don’t want to sell, and get paid bits and pieces along the way.

Naz

All clubs pay in installments and use the contract of us having to pay them to use in getting the money from there bank to get a replacement, that’s it simplified but more or less what makes the world of football revolve

Baresis Dream

Not true I think. Most transfers are paid in full lumps. With FFP rules in particular, installments don’t make sense unless your desperate to sell the player (lack of cash, player wants to leave) or are worried that his price might drop (e.g. Belotti). Think about it. You are Dortmund. You just lost a (say) 80 mil player. You need to replace that player, and you need to replace him now. Now, if your balance sheet shows you got only 20-30 mil this year for him, FFP makes it hard for you to buy that 80 mil player even if… Read more »

“Not true I think. Most transfers are paid in full lumps.” R u seriously telling me u dont know that most expensive transfers like transfer of pogba, kaka, crespo, lukaku, neymar to barca, ibra et all are paid in installments?

Kourosh

He’s worth it no doubt. I hope he comes.

But isn’t he a little too similar to Andre Silva? They have the same playing style except Aubameyang is obviuosly much more mature at this point, whereas Belotti, Kalinic and Diego Costa are totally different players.

Misund

I dono, Silva likes to drop deep to collect the ball, and Auba preferes to run in to space. It could work. But as long as Montella wants to go with one striker up top i dont think it matters much.

Baresis Dream

I think Costa is the most talented of the lot; the problem that he’s also the craziest.

Rabiu idris

belotti

ted

Mirabelli will reportedly make another offer for Belotti, 75 millions + Niang but will be difficult as Torino are not convinced by Niang

VanBasten

latest news say (football italia)
milan go for kalinic + dolberg
i like that version too
as dolger is a tall guy-young but is verry used in playin 433 could learn from kalinic
and build the future strike for of milan
silva-dolberg-cutrone

AWE

Is it auba or belotti fit for milan… belotti
I believe the most suitable player.
Belotti has spirit and tenacity. He is like inzaghi with better ball control.
Auba has speed. But not fighting spirit. He seems always calm but run faster than anyone.

Donremie

Dis suspense it becoming too intense…particularly becos fassobelli are not making any bids…we have about 3 targets now,auba, hello to n kalinic still not ruling out MF. Making a choice of d 3 is so hard…auba at 70m is good bargain considering he can deliver at d biggest stage for anoda 2 or 3years n d experience..belloti at 80m also not bad becos he is going n can still attract bigger offer in case we chose to sell him later, he can also grow to become a Milan legend, though limited in experience on d big stage, it’s obvious dat… Read more »

bidonesia

Belotti will be around 70m + Niang & Paletta while Auba 70m cash,
if Fasobeli can convince 1of’em for instalement pay would be awsome,
we’ve to go all out, Belotti will be good but Auba better…
i think we get Auba now then Belotti naxt season, i guess Belotti price will be less, all big clubs got their star striker & Toro got harder competitions, i don’t think Toro’s cinderela story last longer cuz serie a titans already awaken…

nick

Aubameyang will be great! I’m confident Fassone and Maribelli will get us someone special. Montella will have his work cut out but I believe he will do well. Just look at Allegri at Juventus now compared to his last season at Milan. The problem wasn’t Allegri, the problem was that lunatic Galliani who was signing players that we either didn’t need, didn’t fit our formation and players who weren’t good enough. So we constantly played these below par players out of position like Kevin Constant as left back or worst the signing of Mesbah and Taiwo. Even Sosa, Vagionni, Ocampus,… Read more »

Agni

Aubamayeng is a finished product while bellotti is still taking shape as a top striker.

So yeah auba gives us greater guarantees than bellotti, and after spending so much Milan can’t afford to slip up now.

So as far as I am concerned aubamayeng takes priority over bellotti, while we can add bellotti next season if he repeats his exploits this season and proves he has what it takes to perform at this level season after season.

Milanellofm

I don’t think our budget is a problem. We are apparently ready to launch a 75m bid plus niang for belotti. If we offered 60m for aubemayang I think they’d find a median at 70m.either those two strikers I’m happy with but aubameyang is proven world class top 10 striker in world so I’d prefer him. Belotti next year!

Auba wants milan, dortmund wants to sell, Milan should get him by any means necessary. period !!!

milan plan to buy kalinic and dolberg from ajax
pay 25-30 for kalinic and 30 for dolberg

i personaly like the idea
putting the foundation of the future
silva-cutrone-dolberg
and have a expirienced striker who can help them grow

as dolberg is a tall guy like kalinic
and cutrone more like silva

whatever outcome
all the targets for me makes sence
i trust mirabelli and montella to make the right choise

fully support them
great times to be milanista

Kasper Dolberg is a risk in my opinion. Although he is a good striker, he is not world class like Aubameyang or Diego Costa and he doesn’t have any experience playing in Serie A like Belotti and Kallinic. Serie A is a tough league that prides itself on excellent defending. Even the smaller teams are very good at defending. So It’s not an easy league for strikers. Andre Silva has no Serie A experience. So to have two strikers that needs time to adapt to the league is a big risk and potentially a bad investment. Either we get one… Read more »

If they are about to spend 25+ millions for Kalinić then why in god’s name did they splash 38+ millions for Silva? To bench him? To suck up to Mendes for future cooperation? And what does that mean for Cutrone who begs to stay at Milan and prove he’s Milan material? Till now Kessie, Conti, RR, Bonucci and Biglia are the only logical buys, don’t know where Hakan will fit in 433 and who’ll exchange places with Kessie on b2b position. And I see no proper wings except for Suso Dolberg? If Andre Silva and Dolberg can play on wings… Read more »

i agree with you. the buys we made could be that montella wants to switch mostly from 433 to 352 then 433 rodriguez can drop in to the 3 man defence and calkanoglu can come in the middle but it seems that the buys have not been made to be for one system if montella would stick to 433 was no need for calkanoglu-more need a winger if 352 then we did not need baroni more another defence maybe all is a future plan hakan makes sence if we get rid of monto and suso loose two for one quality… Read more »

VanBasten

seems that montella wants strikers who can play on the wings-silva/dolberg
that would ease for him to switch from 433-352
just in the middle he needs some one like kalinic/abu/belotti
but abu or belotti are with 70-80 verry expensive
considering he has not resolved the winger problem
so he may want to resolve all at one
get kalinic + dolberg
as dolberg is young and already used to play in a 433 on wings and in the middle

nick

Juventus struggling bad without Bonucci. On paper Milan have the the best defense. Only time will tell who will win the scudetto but I’m feeling confident in our chances.

Looking at Juventus vs Lazio it is clear to that Bonucci left a big hole in Juventus defense.

It will not be easy to replace him especially with a declining and inconsistent Benatia. Lol.

I’m loving it. Can’t wait for the season to start.

Kwabena Adu

We sure need a striker than can at least score 20-30 goals a season and i doubt Kalinic can do that.With all this heavy investment failure to qualify for the CL will be a disaster

Mello

Well I would pref auba or belotti over Kalinic/Dolberg.

Would be amazing to see a line-up like this next year;
(Or atleast smth like this)
Donna
Musacchio-Bonucci-Romag
Conti – Kessie/loca – bona/hakan – ricrod
Mesuso
Silva belotti

Lets see where the transfer saga ends!

Forza Milan!

VanBasten

i love the idea of 3-5-2
but my fear
we do have not good enough backups for the defence this year
as roma is injurry prone an musa also
we would risk too much playing all our 3 star defender at once
i guess this is why montella prefers still 433
as he can always during the game switch to a 3 man defence
dolberg makes more sence if we gona stick mostly to 433
as he can play on both wings and in the middle of a 3 man attack

+milan

dolberg that didn’t register a single shot against ManU in europa league final….
dolberg can never be successful in seria A, he is not the kind of striker that can strive in seria A….
he is just a waste of time and space…. our very own silva gat more potential than him, hell even cutrone has more hunger and temperament than your shitty dolberg…

Kasper dolberg is a fascinating idea, I would absolutely love him at Milan.

Silva, dolberg and cutrone- awesome trio for a decade at least.
But we need someone to mentor them and kalinic surely can’t be that guy.

Kaka

You can’t rely on two new players with no experience in Serie A as Italian league isn’t easy to play. Plus Silva and Dolberg are youngsters who need top forward to study from. Buying Dolberg is a risk IMO. Italian media reports, Fassobeli are waiting for an extra budget to make a shot for a big meat in attacking zone. I don’t get it why Kalinic is the hottest right now. It’s not logic, observing Belotti, saying Auba is your fate and stretching time for Kalinic? Then media says Kalinic is the hottest as well as directors are waiting for… Read more »

If we are gonna get Dolberg than we should leave Kalinic in Fiorentina and keep Cutrone with us. In that way we would have 3 young talented strikers with different attributes and Niang 🙂

P.s. I saw De Sciglio slip against Lazio. Man that less famous Lukaku owned him, haha. He was awful. When I saw him slipped i caught myself waving to him

Pato + cutinho with a coach without military training, would be scary

Do you even watch football or you just write something and assume that It’s correct? Pato gets injured all the time. Even after leaving Milan he just kept getting small(out for a week or month) injuries. That is why he ended up in China. One of the biggest talents without any doubt but unlucky

He is playing every game in china, and so did he in spain!

Rikimaru Tenchu

What do you guys think of Pato as a fringe player? I don’t want any bashing here. It’s Just a Question?

His only issues are injuries and can be managed without a heavy workload.
He should be cheap to acquire and has massive talent still.

Oh well, maybe it’s nostalgia speaking

If he comes cheap then its worth a shot. Afterall it cant be worse than having Borini around
