Fassone Style Devilcool
^ haha


So Andre Silva official. Still no details on the transfer details. Most sources say 30mil + 8mil bonus. We also don't know how that 30mil is split up.

Kessie = 8mil + 20mil obligation in 2019
Musacchio = 15mil + 3mil bonus
R.Rodriguez = 15mil
Andre Silva = 30mil (???) + 8mil bonus

So worst case scenario, we have spent 68mil this summer....obviously that's assuming that we are paying the 30mil for for Silva now which I doubt. We also don't quite know if the Musacchio and RR fees are spread out over a couple of years.

Mirabelli said that things will now calm down a little bit for us. Not sure if I believe him, but if anything, we need to be working on getting rid of some of the players we have and hopefully raising some money from them.

Another report on Milannews says Borja Valero to Milan is a done deal & he'll undergo medicals in the next two days LOL.
10mln euros including bonus.
Damn that was fast

There are conflicting reports. I think the one saying that we have agreed a deal for him is from Marca. Not the most reliable to be honest, but you never know.....they all seem to be a hit or miss.

Other reports are saying that this is completely wrong and that Valero is of no interest to Milan.
Milan's spent 99m and we're only 12 days into the mercato
Corriere says that Juventus is trying to do a double transfer with Lazio also. They want De Vrij and Keita. Not sure why they would want De Vrij. They have plenty of CBs. But oh well! I actually want them to get Keita. I am getting really tired of that saga...


I smell another deal with Mendes. The list of players that his company represents is unreal. A ton of talent there. Having said that, I kind of hope that the other deal is not Diego Costa. I just feel like our locker-room may go to hell with him in there. All is takes is one bust up with Montella or a teammate. We all know he is good for it...

....2 hours later Fassone apparently personally heading to Rome (possibly for Keita) and makes contact with Percassi about Conti (both rumours on Milannews).

I'm stumped at how these guys are working, I can't remember seeing anything like it.  Huh

Of course, I'm not complaining  Devilol

One thing to note, it's obviously important that these guys work well on the mercato, but it's even more vital in how they work to then bring the group together once preseason starts. If there's one thing I must say Galliani was exceptional at (based on comments from players), it's as a man manager on a day to day basis he (along with the staff) really made life easy for players by making sure they were taken care of. That must be maintained in order to make the transition smooth and also ensure the club takes the right steps going forward.

No we didn't:
- Mustang: 18m
- Kessie: loan fee only
- RR: 15m + bonus
- Andre: 38m + bonus
Honestly the most amazing part of this mercato is the flexibility we afforded ourselves by identifying so many useful targets. There is the clear difference between last management and now. If a guy doesn't want to come to milan (Morata), then we move on and get the next one (Silva). It appears this management group can also juggle many items at once. Instead of stopping everything until we figure the future of donnarumma or DCS, we can negotiate their contract and that of others. Finally!!
