Luca Antonelli has attracted interest from Frosinone, while Gomez’s move to Boca is destined to not be completed.
With Ivan Strinić joining, the Rossoneri currently have 3 players in their squad who can play as left-backs (4 if you also wish to count Fabio Borini), and so Luca Antonelli could become surplus to requirements, especially with Milan probably only playing in Serie A and the Coppa Italia next season.
Ricardo Rodriguez (who has offers from the EPL and from another top European club) played 47 matches last season, and so Antonelli didn’t find much space, and was involved in just 13 games. But despite dealing with many injuries and not playing consistently, Sky Italia reports that Frosinone, who finished 3rd in Serie B last year and achieved promotion, are interested in signing the 31-year-old.
Contacts between Milan and Frosinone have already been initiated and it seems that the Diavolo are not opposing a sale. The Diavolo are currently focused on selling players, before they move to buying.
Meanwhile, Gustavo Gomez to Boca Juniors looks unlikely. Milan and the Argentine club have an agreement on the basis of €6m plus 20% of a future sale, but now there’s a problem between Boca and the center back, who had already passed his medical check-ups with the Primera División outfit.
Sky reports that things are on standby with Boca, but Lazio are also interested in the Paraguayan. Pietro Balzano Prota suggests that the issue is related to the payment method, the currency precisely: the agents of Gomez demanded the payment to be made in dollars and not in local currency.
Unless Gomez accepts the proposal of Boca, the deal will fall through as the club appears to not be willing to renegotiate terms with the 24-year-old who only played in 2 matches last season.
Get rid of both of them. Kallinic is also moving to Atletico, which will let Gameiro move to Valencia and Zaza to come to Milan. He played very well last season and is way better than Kallinic. I hope that we will get another striker, as Juve are getting CR7 and will basically invincible. we still need to get rid of Bacca, Zapata or Musacchio, Mauri, Monto, Silva and Bertolacci. Carvalho(who is a must buy), Badej, Whilshere, Bruno Fernandes, Gelson Martins, Max Meyer and Bernard are all free. Spend all the money on the striker the rest of the squad… Read more »
Exactly. Spending all money for 1 top class striker is better than signing 3 average ones.
Have a bit of respect for Luca
Zaza is rubbish we are not moving from failure to failure. We should rely on crotone and silver get a good attacking midfielder than getting a useless striker ..
had solid season last year. if you don’t know don’t call players rubbish cause they aren’t world-class. he’s a solid back-up
A very good start and then and a very very poor finish. He’s scored not more than 2 goals in the last half of the season. Not good. And if you want him as back up, I dont think we can pay 20m for one in this financial mess. Cutrone and Silva should be good enough as back up to a top striker
I would rather prefer Balotelli to Zaza .. cuz he create fear into defender mind while zaza is too soft like Andre Silver and dont have that zeal and fighting spirit this milan team need in a striker
Decent quality fullback, a good professional and a Rossoneri. I remember some nice performances of him in his first season but injuries didn’t do him good.
Keeping Gomez and selling Zapata instead will not be the worst thing ever. Lad is not a bad player and will be more willing to accept 4th choice role. He’s so fast for a center back and physical.
