A little word for Miha who has been diagnosed with cancer, effectively. Not the worst manager we ever had, and football is in a lot of context when you're fighting for your life.

Best wishes sir.

Krunic on Bennacer: "He's really, really good. I used to ask myself, how is it possible he plays for a team like Empoli"

And I've honestly been very impressed from his videos on YouTube. Here's to hoping we made a good signing.

Classy response to this, guys. Is this really the heartless filth this planet has become?

Empoli's president said we'll sign Bennacer from them in the next two days.

Great, so now we're becoming the new Empoli.

Worth noting how this "worthless Empoli player" was top player in the Africa cup (link). Just saying ...

Yes, such sad news re Miha. Wishing him a full recovery.

What are your thoughts about this Correa story (The A. Madrid one not Lazio)?

I mean he's a good player, but not 50m good... Hopefully it's just paper talk and not much else, we can do so much better with that kind of money imo

I suspect this may be fake news (so far all signings have been under the radar). In any case 50M is the ask, I read somewhere Milan is willing to pay 35M and no more. The Veratout saga seems to indicate M&B will not go over what they believe the player is worth (a refreshing change from the M&F days).

Edit: opinion on Correa varies from worthless (hardly scored any goals at Atletico) to great potential as SS. But 30-35M is the most he is worth.

A few more items floating in the media and on fan sites:
- linked with Modric, and Modric does appear to be leaving RM (Hazard just took his number). I think this is a real long shot, but ...
- the search for a central defender continues (may end up paying lots of money to Juve)
- possible sale of Suso to Roma, but Roma wants a swap and we are not interested in the players they are offering
- possible sale of Cutrone to EPL
- Merda appears to be in meltdown mode already


FWIW, if we are really selling Suso, Giampaolo's comments shows how you approach this (as opposed to Conte slamming half of his team, and Zidane slamming Bale). The moment you tell the world you are not interested in a player, the value takes a nose dive.

Not 100% happy if Cutrone leaves, but he needs regular playing time or will not develop. If we keep him on the team as a sub he will lose value.

Andre Silva to Monaco for 30M seems like a done deal. The player has already left Milanello. Excellent news.

As for Correa, seems like we have a deal with the player. Now to reach an agreement with Atletico, who ask 50M but we're not willing to spend more than 40M.

No idea how good this guy is. Never heard of him before. From the clips on YouTube he seems promising, but obviously there's more to it than that.

Jeez, talk about overreacting.

Felt very sorry when I read the news, hopefully he can overcome it.

Agreed re Correa's price. We could get Everton from Gremio for that kind of money and he looks like a complete gem to me

I think the Modric stuff is BS. Why would he come to Milan and does he really have 3 to 4 years of top level football left in him tha would justufy this from our end? I don't think so tbh.

Re Suso, it seems like we asked for Zaniolo or they pay the buyout. Good move. Either one is great for us imo, I don't think Suso is worth that or Zaniolo

Looks like both Cutrone and Silva are on their way out, so not only will we need to practically replace an entire midfield unit, we'll also have to replace nearly the entire attacking line if all these things happen. Just seems strange that we would change so much and with a relatively small budget to operate within as well

Hmm... Don't know, Di Marzio and Manu Baio are the ones reporting this, they're usually pretty on the money

Great business if we can get get that kind of money for Silva after the last 2 mediocre years. At least we only lost 8m or so on him.

Actually we made a gain of 9M because his contract right now is worth 21 million.

Because I didn't write in a forum that I'm sorry for Miha, according to you, it's a sign that this planet has become a heartless filth? Come on...
