Gustavo Gomez’s agent says Fenerbahçe changed the offer from net to gross numbers and therefore the player’s will has also changed so he will stay.

Last week it was suggested that Milan had rejected Fener’s offer for Gustavo Gomez as it was deemed too low, but the deal had been kept alive and in the last days it appeared that the center back wants to leave the Rossoneri in favor of Turkey.

But with just a few days left until the end of the mercato, deals need to be concluded, one way or the other, and today black smoke arrived from the Gomez front.

“In the last hours, when the negotiations between Milan and the Turkish club were still in progress, Fenerbahçe changed the conditions with respect to the payment of Gustavo’s salary,” agent Augusto Paraja told Sky Italia. “The figure they had told us at first was supposed to be net of taxes, then they told us that would be gross wages. Since the financial terms changed so did our desire.

“Today Gustavo Gomez is and will remain a Milan player.” Fener have already moved forward and are very close to signing Luis Neto from Zenit. The Paraguayan meanwhile, will fight for a spot.

Gustavo Gomez is like the new Manolas….. he is a no nonsense defender…
we should keep hold of him for the future…

Francke

Better than Zapata for the future.

bidonesia

hope he stay, an old-fashion latin defender, fighter without nonsense…
in other side Neto can be huge help for Silva, he’s 29yo portugese with serie a experienced, play CB/DM a useful backup…

I dont know why offers are not coming for Zapata? We’d be stupid to reject one if Poli could go for free. I’d keep Gomez. I dont think we would find a better replacement who will be willing to be 4th/5th choice. He’s attacking minded and defensively I dont think he was notably that bad last season. He’s so fast.

I don’t see reason for selling this guy except montella don’t have intention of playing 3 man defense

Donremie

Ok, d handwriting is on d wall, montella is not playing 3 CB. But den we can still use Gomez 5 cb is not too much from a team like Milan… bonucci, romag, musachio, Zapata, Gomez ok

Simo

And there is Gabbia, who can play DM and CB too – and only 17 years of age.

Paletta will be sold or send to the sands, while his contract expires.

With Zapata (31), Bonucci (30), Musachio (27), Gustavo Gomez (24), Romagnoli (22), Gabbia (17) we’ll be well covered in defense even if we play 3-5-2/3-4-3. And That’s a young defence, they can learn movements, tactics and tackling.

I just ponder why a guy so young and talented is being placed on the market while Zapata is left to roam free… He’s not even been given the chance to prove himself but I believe he’ll eventually come good for us in the near future.

Ali

Good, I hope he replaces lord Zapata soon.

fegzy

please sign Balde keita

Layfon

Looks like keita balde is going to Monaco . He would have been a great addition to our attack .hope we can get a top or atleast a good winger before the transfer market closes .

Ali

Monaco completed the signings of Keita and Jovetic. The moment you realise that Serie A has fallen too low… Smh

Milan 2017

Julian Brandt , Brahimi or Bellarabi please!
