Freiburg have signed another midfielder and have reportedly ended their pursue of Rade Krunić.

Krunić joined Milan last season from Empoli for €8 million, showing himself to be a capable substitute but has been linked in this mercato with an exit.

The name of Freiburg has been mentioned a lot in relation to Krunić. However, according to Gianluca Di Marzio, the Bundesliga club is no longer interested in the Bosnia international.

Di Marzio claims that Milan had asked Freiburg for some more time to evaluate their offer for Rade, due to their Europa League commitments. But Freiburg were in a hurry to get a new midfielder and have gone ahead to sign the 25-year-old Baptiste Santamaria from Angers instead.

It is said that Freiburg even paid for Santamaria €2 million more than what they were offering for Krunić (a reported €8m). Di Marzio says Milan are thinking of keeping the player in the squad.

Noooooooooooooo!!! Why didn’t we sell him earlier on? For him to play extra 20 minutes vs unknown Irish team? 8M just lost for nothing.

Very disappointing news. Krunić is useless in this Milan team. I hope Torino take him off our hands. Another poor signing and poor decision not sell him ASAP. Smh.

I repeat what I wrote to another article. You cannot win and perform just with calibre players, you also need squad players who can help you when the starters are in trouble. Krunic is a squad man so needed in a team, he must stay because he is a jolly, he can play all the positions in midfield, DM, CM, AM, even RM, so if Paqueta leaves we need a third choice for the AM position, after Calhanoglu and Diaz, we have Maldini, but he must gain his position in the team step by step because he is young. Krunic… Read more »

Agree. Squad players are important for depth and rotation. Ppl here need to understand this aint FIFA or PES. And Krunic only didnt shine bcoz Bennacer and Kessie formed a solid partnership. Krunic is still a decent player.
