Alexis Saelemaekers is replacing Suso at Milan, he will sign with the Diavolo on Deadline Day.

Milan yesterday sent Suso to Sevilla on an 18-month loan with option to buy, which can become an obligation once certain objectives and conditions are met.

The Rossoneri have decided to replace the Spaniard with a 20-year-old Belgian: Alexis Saelemaekers from Anderlecht, who scored 2 goals in 59 appearances.

Saelemaekers can play all across the right side, he’s capable of playing as a winger, midfielder and even defender. According to Milannews.it, the formula should be a loan with an option to buy, which can become an obligation, for a total amount of €7-8m. Tomorrow he’ll be in town for the medical.

The transfer window shuts on Friday at 20:00 CET. In addition to Saelemaekers, Milan could also sign a left back. According to Gianluca Di Marzio, however, there are no more talks for Matías Viña.

I hope he is a good signing. I am indifferent about the sale of Peitek but I hope its all for good. I keep my fingers crossed and hope that there will be a new owner and a new fortune for our beloved club.

Oooo. I like this kid. I have a feeling he’s gonna pull a Bonaventura in his 1st season – cheap and deadly. Safe cheap purchase imo. I think qualification into Europa League is enough for the management to throw in some money to make big signings happen this summer. With all the sales and salary saved, FFP will be less of a problem honestly. 80 million saved plus another 80 million investedment from the owners – 150-160 Million and we can surely get 2-3 quality champions into the squad to build up on the current one. Fingers crossed

2 goals in 59 games, sounds promising. Had a look at him on YouTube looks lightweight, easily knocked off ball. But wish him well and hope he proves me wrong!! Can’t be worse than suso, right?

No need to disrespect Suso like that
Yes his end was disappointing but he won us many games by himself as well
He also stayed with us when we were really bad and rejected offers

60,000 milan fans also disrepected him last time he played, enjoy the 19 likes!

#1. He isn’t better than Suso #2. Castillejo is undoubtedly Suso’s replacement and everyone knows, especially after his brace vs Torino, Hakan will occupy the other wing. Point being this kid is going to be a bench player. And #3. Just as ‘Milan 653’ said- Suso single handily won us many games over the last few years (not an opinion, an actual fact) and he very easily could’ve left Milan on a few occasions. I fully understand that he’s been god awful this campaign, as I watch every game, but don’t sit here chirping when I guarantee, if you’re a… Read more »

Castillejo’s brace against Torino ? Maybe bracelet, because he didn’t provide any brace. Maybe Hakan ! Suso was a shit character, he is good but a shit human !

You obviously didn’t read my comment right because I’m clearly talking about Hakan.

I’m clearly talking about Hakan, ‘son’. Maybe re-read my comment 2 or 3 more times so that tiny brain can finally grasp what I’m saying.

1 person can play as a winger, midfielder and even defender! This is troubling, he might yet steal Pioli’s job from him. Fingers crossed.

before anyone bitch about this youngster, one has to remember that milan’s scout is geoffrey moncada now. luan capanni, jungdal, borges, these are some of youngsters milan have bought since he joined. this guy used to work for monaco during mbappe era. and of course maldini/boban know better than fassobelli. i didnt know who saelemaekers was but judging by clips on utube he looks a lot like samu; fast, good dribbling but a bit lacking in delivering final balls. the fact than he can play on both flanks and even as rb really excites me. i hope he can be… Read more »

Agreed, and the fact that the press did not get a whisper of this makes me feel that this was a shrewd bit of business, fingers crossed and welcome to Milan Alexis

From what Anderlecht fans have told me they dont rate him at all in fact they were hoping that he would be sold atleist its just an option to buy… Its clear to me that Milan will not sign anybody they are just cleaning up in this transferwindow by selling and getting players on loan it seems that Milan are planning quite a big transfer market in the summer

OmarLittle
Guest

I dont really want to get ahead of myself but i think Maldoban’s plan is to make space for the transferwindow in the summer & im quite we will sign Tonali

Yes indeed, seem like they are preparing for the summer with all the cuts in wages and selling fringe players. We need 4 younger but class player signings this summer. CB to partner Romagnoli – Tah or Upamecano Regista – Tonali De Paul Castrovilli Lineup hopefully: Donna Conti Tah Roma Theo Castrovilli Tonali Bennancer De Paul Zlatan Rebic/Leao

He looks very weak and easy to push over. Still 10 times better than Suso though!

It’s a smart investment to not buy these nobody players anymore. Just get them on loan until the end of the season. From the looks of it they are going to sell the club again. Hopefully this time someone who actually loves AC Milan and UNDERSTANDS football will buy. We sorely need a WORLD CLASS COACH like Guardiola. I am sure with the right amount of money we can get one…

I personally like him a lot. What people don’t realize is that he is 2 footed and can play on either side of the field, lw,rw, lm, rm, cam. Very technically gifted and he is a decent passer with a lot of potential. Also we need to promote Luan Capanni, Brescianini, and Pobega when he comes back from loan

I am still wondering who will replace Bennacer in our next match or are we likely to change formation for his sake. Am really anxious.

They will likely play Calhanoglu next to Kessie i think or Krunic i guess.

Hakan I hope

Very speedy also,A good back up i would say. Rebic on the left and Caste on the righ would be my first choices with Hakan behind the strikers..

Mario Pjaca From Juventus seemed like a better option to me instead of this kid who nobody knows anything about.

I just don’t see how this signing will raise the level of our team. Unbelievable. Smh

I am a big fan of Pjaca and still wished he came to us instead of Juve but don’t sleep on this kid

This provides us with depth on the right side especially since Castilejo is the on fire but could get tired or suspended.
I don’t think milan will get a striker to replace Piatek (I wish they would). Let’s see how this all goes.

I don’t know too much about this kid, but a Belgium U21 international can’t be that bad; YouTube shows he has some skills, and can use both feet. Overall this seems like a good deal considering the price, but yeah – at some point we’re going to have to sign some real quality instead of just potential.
