M’Baye Niang has officially joined Torino, ending his career at Milan after 5 years.

After a deal was found in the afternoon between Milan and Torino, the 22-year-old has now put pen to paper and officially reunited with coach Sinisa Mihajlovic.

“Torino Football Club is pleased to announce that it has acquired M’Baye Niang from Milan on a temporary basis with obligation to buy,” a statement on Torino’s website reads on Thursday.

At first it was reported that Torino will pay Milan €2 million for the loan with the buy-out set at €15 million plus €2-3 million in bonuses, making the transfer worth a total of €19-20m. But according to Gianluca Di Marzio, it is actually €2m for the loan, €12m for the buy-out + €1m in performance-related bonues; in addition, Milan will be entitled to 25% of a future sale. Niang joined the Diavolo in 2012 from Caen for about €2 million.

“I’m happy to be a Torino player,” Niang told the club’s official website after signing the contract, which has been deposited. “What I was hoping for has been realized, I want to thank everyone for making this happen. I wanted to come here because I feel everyone’s trust, and that’s very important. After that it’s no secret that I have an excellent relationship with Mihajlovic. I expect to do well in the League and the Coppa Italia, the objective is to go as high as possible with this shirt.”

Niang played 77 times with the Milan shirt, scoring 12 goals. He was sent on loans to Montpellier, Genoa and Watford but he is now gone on a permanent basis and will try to make a name for himself.

ThankGod he is gone never like his style of play anyway. To join Milan fans Whatapp group massage me on +2348032873293


finally he’s gone


I hope he does well and Miha gets the best out of him. He had and still has a lot of promise but he needs to mature. He’s been one of ours for a long time and id like to see him do well and come back if he reaches his potential


Ohh noo , not Niangu !! And this was going to be the best season ever in his career , what a shame . We will miss you’re misses , and those fu…ng cringy dribbles . Good luck at Torino not passing for Belotti


and all of a sudden his health is in good condition i need to know his doctor




I won’t be surprised if Niang made it at Torino were there is little grace afterall Milan is “LAX” and have lost their discipline ever since the senators resigned. Cassano, Menez, Balotelli, Mexes and Niang made the locker room unhealthy but they have all gone now. Milan is gradually resembling the 2000’s with real men and hard core players like Bonucci, Musacchio, Biglia, Kessie, Romagnoli, Donnarumma, Bonaventura to mention just a few.


mexes c’mon


Good luck, Niang. Now I hope we sign a left wing. We are playing the 4-3-3 with zero depth at that position. Borini is not starters material for a team with Milan’s ambitions.


Good luck Niang. Now if Miha change to a 2 striker formation he will shine and support belotti like he did with bacca in the 442 under miha at Milan. Good to get some cash for once. Dident expect this much for him.


Thanks Niang. Good luck. I will always remember your incredible one on one miss against Barcelona, that led them to score at the other end to eventually knock us out of the UCL

Comment: Goodluck Niang with your new adventure.. Good deal and all parties are Happy. Glad i won’t get to watch you play with the Milan shirt *Big Grin* .. #Forza Milan


So Milan sold Bacca, Lapadula and Niang
And brought in A.Silva, Cutrone and Borini



Scary! Really scary my brother… when the big games comes we will know what we have done to ourselves!


You should’ve mention Kalinic too.


Torino headquarter looks like dean’s office. I dont think any of them have ever seen 100m check so im not sure why they put 100m price tag on belotti. That number is way out of their league

I wish him succes… Guys for your fixed match 100% sure. Whatsapp me on +2347067525493.. and make your dream wealth come through …


Don’t get me wrong, extatic to be rid of him, however, we are giving him at a discounted price to this muppet from Torino, all the while possibly losing out on one of the Genoa lads while he delayed to get him on a knock down price. After the saga with Belotti, why are we doing them any sort of favor.


I think he will be make torino more dangerous attacking with Belloti …. but good luck Niang Hope u successful
