Andrea Conti has left Milan for the final time and he’ll try to relaunch his career at Sampdoria with Roberto D’Aversa.

Conti joined Milan from Atalanta in 2017 for a reported fee of €24 million plus Matteo Pessina, with the title of being one of the best fullbacks in Italy.

However, injuries completely changed the career of the Italian, who in his first season suffered an ACL injury, which he never really bounced back from.

With his contract due to expire in June, Conti and Milan have chosen to part ways in the January mercato: “Milan announces that Andrea Conti has signed for U.C. Sampdoria on a permanent basis,” a statement reads. “The Club would like to thank Andrea for the commitment and professionalism that he’s always displayed and wishes him the very best for the future, both personally and professionally.”

Conti will reunite with Roberto D’Aversa who coached him at Parma last season when Andrea was on loan there. It’s the end of a chapter for Conti, who is still only 27-year-old.

24 Million plus Pessina all wasted !! I can’t remember when last we sold a player with a huge profit..All our sales for these past years have always be on loss

Christian

Donnarumma should have been given to him too …..lol

Now we need to sell Castillejo, Tatarusanu, Ballo-Toure. Get rid of Pellegri as well. then get CAM, RW and young LB. For CAM Kamada Daichi is really underrated, Frankfurt won’t relegate so we will receive 10M from Hauge deal use it to get him for small amount. RW is the position that we have continued to ignore for the past 3 seasons and it will continue to hurt us. Spend money on 1 player which is vital for us. Kulusevski, Correra, Berardi, Anthony, Neres, Traore all great options.

Neres was sold for 12M, Ikone for 14M… just saying…

Riccardo Montolivo

Back in the day I was all against him, Abate was just fine and we had Calabria as a back up. Wasted money just like Higuain, Caldara, Bertolacci.

Higuaín was around 18 for the loan plus wage

Mierdolacci was 20m and he ran away from the ball
Caldara cost us Bonucci FFS.

That’s why you don’t hire interistas
