Alexis Saelemaekers will stay at Milan for the next few years after convincing the management.
Saelemaekers joined the club in the January transfer window from Anderlecht on a six-month loan with option to buy.
Alexis has been used primarily as a substitute, either as a right back or winger. The 21-year-old has not been heavily featured but has evidently done enough to convince Milan to buy him.
“Milan announces having exercised the option to buy Alexis Saelemaekers on a permanent basis. The Belgian player has signed a contract with the club until 30 June 2024,” a statement on the club’s website reads.
The Diavolo will pay Anderlecht around €7-8 million for the full-time services of Saelemaekers, who will allow next season’s Milan coach to use his flexibility and versatility.
