Pretty sure they were followed by the club saying he was going nowhere.

of course, If an EPL team appears with an offer we can't refuse, then we'd need another RB

He seems like a solid and disciplined option with all the good attributes to make the jump towards Serie A.
Rotational he would be a very wise investment.
As he is a late bloomer, he could helps us a lot for the next 3-4 seasons.
Have faith in Maldini.

Milan youth system is primarily concentrated within the Italy boundaries and consists of mostly Italian players and the fact is that most of the Italian gems are being bought by Atalanta, Inter and Juventus We end up with average players due to which our Primavera stinks.
Milan have reportedly resumed talks for Atletico Madrid forward Angel Correa, but Valencia are also ready to pounce.
This reeks on late Galliani era. Entire mercato window spent on speculations and "negotiations" ,and than other club snap our "target" and we end with cheap and crappy "alternative"...

I don't understand.. we already secured 5 new signings of our targets, so what's the problem?

Yes, there will always be that one player wanted by another club and will go into a bidding war with them.. that's the Mercato.

I mean look at Inter, they bet their whole Mercato on Lukaku and now Juventus are looking likely to snap it from under their noses. shit happens Big Grin

Those are some minor signings... For half of them I'm not even sure if it's good or bad thing that we signed them...
Problem is in those "negotiations". If you can't reach agreement in some reasonable amount of time - than get over it and move away... Chase another one... Espeacially since Correa is not some world class player worth of wasting months on attempts to lure him...Yo ,Atletico...Want this? No? How about this? No? Thanks and goodbye...
I definitely agree that Milan has a history of chasing longer than most other teams, it is often a worthless exercise since we are long removed from the era of last minute Nesta signing types. Of course I am happy that at least we have some movement, Leao for example. In this era of FFP this and that if someone tells us 50 million we can't hang around forever hoping 35 will happen, it is almost insulting even.
Correa has not proven to be World Class, but he fits the mould. As we saw vs Benfica, Giampaolo will require the SS (Samu in that game) to run the channels vertically in order to give long ball and through ball options. In the defensive phase, a lot of pressing will be needed (again, we saw this vs Benfica). So in that sense, Correa really seems like a great fit. Memphis, just as an example because he's been brought up before, doesn't run channels vertically. He comes back for the ball and receives it to his feet mostly. He is also not too suited to a pressing game. So in a way, he'll step on the toes of the ACM by constantly dropping into that space to receive the ball.

My point here is, it's not so simple to find exact alternatives. I'm not saying we should wait for Correa until August 31st, but I also don't want us to just go and dish out 50mil because he is not worth that.

A question for you guys....who do you think out there has these characteristics that is also attainable for us at the right price.
I don't think we are saying pay the 50 or not. Also, I am not sure the point is for fans to know better alternatives, actually it is better if fans "cant decide", team scouts should find the right ones.
