Tonali has reportedly agreed to reduce his salary in order to stay at Milan, the official announcement is close

Milan have renegotiated new terms with both Brescia and Sandro, and now very little is missing for the official.

Sandro did not live up to the hype that accompanied his arrival and showed that despite his great talent, there is still a lot of room for growth for the 21-year-old Italian holding midfielder.

Milan had an option to buy out Tonali after his one-year loan at the club for €15 million plus €10 million bonuses. The Rossoneri decided to not use this option – and instead make a new deal with Brescia at reduced figures.

Talks have been ongoing between Paolo Maldini & Frederic Massara and Brescia President Massimo Cellino for a few weeks and an agreement seems to have been found. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, in addition to the €10m Milan paid for the loan of the player last year, the Rossoneri will also give Brescia €7m plus €5m of bonuses plus Giacomo Olzer, bringing the total deal to €25m.

As reported by Milannews.it, there have also been talks between Milan and Tonali’s agent Beppe Bozzo in regards to the deal. The Diavolo have apparently asked Sandro to reduce his salary and the player accepted the new offer of Milan in order to stay with the club, of whom he’s a lifelong fan.

Milannews.it reports that very little is now missing before Tonali’s official stay at Milan. The new season starts on July 8th and Stefano Pioli will hope to see Sandro at Milanello among his men.

Great characater and true heart and true milanista, hope he will become a legend with us and stay for many years to come. Encouraging to have a player like him in the squad compared to the greedy spineless egos of hakan and donnarumma that we experienced in action lately. I have a feelling that a player like belotti would do the same sacrifices for us so hopefully we will be able to snatch up a good deal and get him in the later stages of the transfer window when torino president cairo fully realizes that he wont renew.

We need to conclude this deal and Brahim’s so we can focus on other areas.i am not too keen on Berardi considering his price tag. A player of chiesa’s make up is what I wish for the right flank, a combination of speed and unpredictability. Then you get a versatile Ilicic as options for both right and middle.

This lad got the right mindset. He’ll have a steep learning curve if provided with consistent playing opportunities. In today’s overvaluated price tags, it takes quite some to reduce the salary.

I hope Milan can now move quick in the mercato moving forward. I don’t know how many of you that are familiar with Tsygankov – versatile and young midfielder and opportunity creator. Would Iove to see him in the right flank.

We should also learn from this kind of business acumen rather than to allow our valuable players to go in reckless abandon. Calhanoglu and Donaruma for example.

What ever mirabelli done in transfer market but he certainly did manage to knock mino off his feet’s. Gigio was never inclined to sign at first place but fans backlash and mirabelli creating the hype by going in media did the trick. I guess maldini was a bit too much nicer with both players and hence they waited for right opportunity to move on. This was really a bad strategy and how many players did we missed.

We all know how de Laurentiis deals with player and hysaj was earning somewhere around 2.8 m yearly. We would have snapped him for free with agents commission which shouldn’t cross much. If we had spread with his contract for three or four years and this would have been helpful. The issue with us neither we wana spend or neither we gona cross salary cap and then we aim for the top.

Valid point regarding hysaj salary and unbalancing our financial structure. This is exactly what I was thinking if we have to sell Pobega and hauge then I just hope this amount is utilised on getting players like berradi or belloti to make our statement in seria a. We need signings through some shrewd investments or we will be left behind in coming season. But back clauses just like Madrid are doing is must we should have some guarantees on our potential future superstars. All and all for solid project to take off we definitely need some smart investments.

Ofcourse it depends on the player and his agent and obviously more high profiled players without a contract will tend to cost more but still it doesnt change the fact that hysaj and his agent could have demanded sign-on fees so the deal would cost ten mil combined for what we know. Unless there are some official numbers we can see it will be nothing but mere speculation to say that lazio actually did a great deal or that we missed out on one.

Whilst Tonalis gesture is admirable and must be applauded, this whole saga is embarrassing. The way things are going we are going to end up asking Brescia to pay us too. Let’s get these renewals done already after all the players deserve it. And why are we selling Hauge? Have we not learnt anything. True Pioli does not use him, but I dont think anybody expects Pioli to be our long term coach. That’s why we cannot build our team around Pioli. Pioli might be sacked next season and then we will regret selling Hauge to please Pioli.

It looks like Gazidis is going to turn Milan into another Arsenal, letting go of quality players and only go for cheap players with low salary and youngsters. Even those younger once they reach a certain stage of maturity and salary we will be selling like Arsenal. Gazidis is no good, I guess Elliot are only looking at financial side not sporting side.

Stefano Pioli has to be removed to make place for a proven, high-quality strategist in the bench to not only make use, but elevate the talent within the team.

It’s been a shitty 10 years to be a Milan fan, but after just one season of qualifying for the CL we shouldn’t be all too happy – and we cannot coin this mercato a success thus far. So this is clearly a joke.

But, if management satisfies Kessie’s demands and agree on a 5 year (+ 1 year option) and somehow have a change of heart regarding Hauge – while bringing back Dalot and Diaz (on options to buy) AND somehow land one of Ziyech, Sabitzer or Isco – it should be a fine mercato.

Hopefully will find a way to satisfy both parties. But Kessié does deserve a decent pay rise the performance he has shown in last one year and more he is worth 4.5m per season.

Absolutely theres a lot of bs nowadays only for the reason to gain clicks on the articles but yeah i dont see us losing kessie on a free either. Worst case scenario he would be sold for a fairly hefty fee to an english team but i dont see that happening either as the management are aware of his value to the team and club. Im sure he will get a good deal offered that he in the end will accept and that meaning a salry at 5-5.5 mil or something. Anyways i’ll propably wont reply anyfurther today and maybe… Read more »

Let’s just calm down and watch what will happen at the moment Maldini is still a successful director for Milan so far cuz he achieved Champions league competition for us not only that but we are second in the table which nobody expected before the beginning of the season… Let’s wait and see the miracle he will do this season

Exactly, the result does not lie. If we are able to participate champion league every season and challenge for the title, I would say be cheap and do whatever you want. Or would you rather get the player you prefer and fail to qualify CL and fail to challenge the title?

I would be happy because this is better than the past 7 mid table years. At least we are in CL, not some lower EL. Eventually, I want someone super rich to take over Milan. So we can go back to the old days. For now we have to be happy for the improvement.

Why are people thinking this is a bad thing? I do not like how Elliott has been cheap. The result is more important. I asked a simple question: would you rather get the players you want or would you rather team win trophys.

We are really suffering the results of poor management.
Last night Donnarumma, Locatelli, pessina all played important roles in Italys success.
Add to that Chiesa and Olmo, the best players on the pitch we “tried ” to sign

Paqueta and Silva have exploded also, tho in fairness they were given their chance.

Bow we are looking at losing Pobega, Olzer, Hauge.
Surely someone in the club can see what the difference is between Talented young prospects and limited journey men professionals!!!

I agree we dont have to go crazy with signings, but that is only true if we keep hold of our best young prospects! We do desperately need a striker, a no. 10 and a RW. Also we need to tie players down to contracts so they have some value. Not a series of loans and options, with that every window we are barely able to keep hold of the players we have. Thus far our window has revolves around trying to keep Hakan, Gigio, Kessie, Dalot, Diaz, Tomori, Tonali, Ibra…… That has left not time or money for actually… Read more »

I dont even remember of anyone asking for crazy signings here. Asking for Thauvian or Hysaj who were free is definetly not crazy. Nor is crazy to ask for players within the 20mil range as Fiorentina and Lazio are buying. And lastly asking to keep players once they improve is not crazy either for a team that claims that their aim is to be at the top.

That requires management that is strong and swift in their action. Also showing some class and dignity befitting a club of Milans stature.
If they sell off Hauge for some average work horse like sabitzer I’ll do my nut!

You do understand that Milan have to brake their self imposed salary cap in order to renew Kessie ? So the fans were right when they said that this management strategy was bad and was going to make us lose players. Backing out from their original strategy just shows that this management was wrong and the fans were right all along.

And their negotiations strategy failed just as many fans predicted, so now they have to abonden their salary cap if they want to keep Kessie. Im not sure how you can not see that they were in the wrong all along. The managment is literatly backing out on what they said,or in other words accepting they were wrong.

Kessie has warned the pay raise so why are Milan being difficult. It’s taking too long and it sends the wrong message to the players performing at top levels. Calabria by the looks of it is almost about to renew, but again, it took too long. You say going in with low offers first is smart? I say it’s the opposite. All that tells me is the club can barely afford to pay it’s too talents and if I want a raise again, they most likely can’t give it to me. So I might as well look somewhere else.

Problem is we have consistently showed we aren’t willing to spend 25 mil on a player even if they are worth it. What do you think of kaio Jorge? I don’t think we should wait to get him for free.

When belotti came on and when he started the 3rd game I believe, he was not good. These players are slowing down and their touch is going with it. Any sort of pressure and they fumble around. If we are going to play a target striker, we need better than what those guys can give as of right now

its well known that forwards often top their game exactly at the age belotti currently holds so not so sure we would be better off with a younger one. Remember inzaghi he joined us when he was 28 and nobody would say he didnt become a milan great. I have a feeling that belotti would be able to score just as many goals as inzaghi did with us and maybe more and atleast his stats shows thats in his reach as he has better stats in turine than pippo had with us and that tells a lot about belottis capabilities… Read more »

Shit I hope y’all are right, but I just don’t see it being as successful as getting someone like scamaca, raspadori, malen, daka etc. honestly, this is the difference in mediocre coaches and good coaches.

We were linked with him but those links went cold. He had a good year. I just don’t get why we are going back to those days of getting old players. Zlatan is diff bc he brought the mentality that was missing. Giroud doesn’t offer anything extra. This team lacks speed in cf, cam and rw. Yes even cam needs speed bc of the system we use, he has to cover a lot of space. There’s a reason why we never really counter down the right or middle.

I am very worried that the fans in the stands are going to influence the ref into making bad decisions. The ref allowed 7 minutes of injury time, gave a dubious penalty, and was blowing the whistle anytime an English player was touched. 80000 fans are expected even though England is being destroyed by the Delta Variant. It just seems like this was all scripted to be honest. I hope that Italy comes out and dominates them but I am very worried.
