Milan have apparently told Cutrone’s agent that Patrick can leave, but only for a certain amount, while Suso will keep wearing red and black.
Cutrone’s agent Donato Orgnoni was at Casa Milan on Friday and had a one hour meeting with the leaders of the Rossoneri.
It was the first meeting between Orgnoni and the new Milan management. But according to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia, after the meeting yesterday, Cutrone is no longer considered not for sale.
The 21-year-old, who grew up in the Youth Sector of Milan, scored just 3 Serie A goals last season as he often failed to convince Gennaro Gattuso to give him the starting spot. Di Marzio and La Gazzetta dello Sport are reporting that the Diavolo will consider selling Cutrone for bids over €25m.
Di Marzio adds that Milan have told Cutrone’s agent that at the moment they consider Krzysztof Piątek and André Silva the two main strikers of Marco Giampaolo. Therefore, Silva is expected to stay and be given a chance. The 23-year-old Portuguese had a disappointing year on loan at Sevilla, who decided not to use their buy-out option, but could find space in Giampaolo’s 4-3-1-2. In addition, it’s clear that making a capital gain by selling a homegrown player like Cutrone is much, much easier than by trying to sell Silva, who joined Milan in the 2017 summer from Porto for €38m.
Sassuolo and Fiorentina have shown interest in Cutrone. As for Suso, meanwhile, there are no concrete offers and therefore he looks set to stay and play as a second striker or a trequartista.
