We would probably have to pay more for him than we will get for Cutrone.

Of course, Lille are not stupid like us to let him go that easily btw both Inter and Napoli and some EPL clubs want him.

So kind of taking that into account, plus other things like the reported fee, I definitely disagree Cutrone needs to leave and even less if the argument for Cutrone leaving is going to mention FFP. We started this window with a front line of Piatek, Cutrone, Silva, Borini. Ending this window with Piatek, Correa, Borini is not a better prepared team and if the ultimate aim is getting to CL we need a forward purchase next summer to be ready (more games, more depth, etc.).

Why? 
Let me start off by saying that I think 18mil is WAY too low. He should cost between 25-30 in today's market. Let me also sa that I am not 100% sold on the fact that we need to sell him. He is from our academy and is a very usefull player.

However, in regards to FFP, there are 3 players we cal potentially sell that'll give us big gains. Gigio, Suso and Cutro. The rest barely do much on the books. 
We talk about Biglia, but even a sale of 10mil (which nobody will pay anyway), only gives us 2-3mil cap gain.
Samu, adjust the #s and you'll find the same thing.
I'm not gonna go through the list of players, but you get my point.

Selling Cutro for less then his market value can mean only one thing. We don't need the cash. I've said this before. We are not selling players for the cash. We are selling them to "free" up funds on our books, aka FFP. Elliot has the cash and is willing to invest it. But they don't want to make the CL and be talking about bans again next May. It was easy to drop the EL, but it won't be easy to do the same with the CL. 

So to spend the cash they are willing to invest, gains on the book have to be made. As i said above...easiest and most impactful way to do it is to sell some(or all) of Gigio, Cutro, Suso.

Not saying I agree completely with selling Cutrone, and definitely not for the price tag.....but there is definitely logic behind the decision.
Because sooner or later we will need replacements and they won't come cheaper than 18 or 25 even. Europa exclusion was meant to buy us time so FFP profits for one year should be meaningless. Next year we will need a new forward even if we make Europa, for sure if we make CL.
Not true. FFP will matter this year again. Missing the EL was only to whipe out the fine/ban for the 3 periods 14-17 and 15-18. 16-19 will still be reviewed. Not like they won't look at out books for the next 3 years.

Agree on the replacements part which is why i'm not 100% sold on letting him go. But tough decisions have to be made if we want to upgrade the squad.
Monaco are interested in signing Fiorentina striker Giovanni Simeone, according to reports, after their Andre Silva move stalled.

There won't be ban talk next summer, UEFA doesn't look at one year periods.
I didn't mean FFP doesn't matter this year. Let's see what that upgrade is and how that reflects in FFP.
Genoa are interested in Milan and Argentina midfielder Lucas Biglia, according to Sky Sport Italia.
Of course not. It's a rolling 3 year continous monitoring.
Seasons 2015/16 - 2017/18 were the initial trouble. Then 2015/16 dropped off from the monitoring (but obviously not the penalties associated with it, if any) and the next period was 2016/17 - 2018/19 for which we were again noncompliant. The gist of the whole thing is that you are allowed losses of 30mil the first year and it goes down every year until at year 3 you should break even. The next monitoring period is 2017/18 - 2019/20. Not entirely sure if the 1st 2 seasons of that are wiped clean with our settlememt...but even so and if 2019/20 is the year we are allowed up to 30mil losses....it means we can't put up 90mil losses again like last year. In that case, you better be sure there will be talks of bans again. This is why Elliot was (and still is) fighting to extend the break even year to 3 years from now instead of 2. Meaning this wouod be the first year of monitoring and we wouod have to stay under 30mil in losses and work our way down within 3 years.

So how do you improve the team and stay below 30mil in losses? You sell Cutrone/Silva/Gigio, since you can't grow revenues over night and none of the other players will bring big capital gains.
