Asensio to Milan: the figures of the possible deal

by | Apr 8, 2022 10:23

Milan have opened preliminary talks with Real Madrid for Marco Asensio and Italian and Spanish media reveal how much the Spaniard would cost the Rossoneri.

Asensio sees his contract expire in June 2023 and pretty much every Italian outlet confirms talks between his entourage and the Rossoneri. Asensio’s agents confirmed the interest of Milan and Arsenal this week. 

According to Calciomercato.com, Sportmediaset and AS.com, Milan can afford his current €5m-a-year salary thanks to the ‘Growth decree’ that would allow the Diavoli to save 50% on the player’s gross wages.

However, Tuttosport claims that the player will be looking for more money, perhaps in the region of €7m per season and it remains to be seen if the Rossoneri would afford as much. Talks between the two parties are ongoing and Paolo Maldini can rely on his excellent rapport with Real Madrid directors.

According to the report, the Merengues value Asensio at €25-30m, but the Rossoneri are negotiating a lower fee given that the player’s contract runs out in the summer of 2023. Sportmediaset claims that Madrid have offered Asensio a new contract, but the player won’t make a decision regarding his future before the end of the campaign.

    Good signing.

    Oh in response to those who questioned why I’m against signing Botman, the problem is he’s too good so he’ll be expensive and he will break up Tomori and Kalulu just as they’re forming a great partnership.

    Looks like more or less the same price as Berardi. Asensio has champions league experience and has goals in him specially through long range efforts but Berardi is on another level when it comes to putting others in a scoring position.

    Either one would be a huge improvement on what we’ve got anyway.

    Not sure about this move, would prefer Berardi. Asensio’s best performances came at the age of 21-23, for me. Despite considerably more space in Real’s squad he has regressed in recent seasons.

    @Maldini’s Heir
    As usual good points!
    I am inclined to agree with you about Botman, Kalulu has been superb. It is tricky though, as Milan backed Diaz to be Calhanoglu’s replacement based on strong performances at the end of last season, and that mistake may well end up being the difference between winning the title or not.

    Berardi(RW) AND Asensio(AM)

    As much as I love Diaz he doesn’t cut it in more physical games, hence why Kessié was better at AM at times.

    We’re not going to be able to afford all the improvements we need to make. We’re not buying a good CB, CM, AMC, RW *and* ST. As some have pointed out, we may not need Botman after Kalulu’s showing in 2022. He seems like a great defender, but given our emergency need for production in attack spending money on him and Sanches, or any other CM might not be the wisest strategy. Pobega, while not the same profile as Kessie would still fill his “slot” and would help us meet UEFA requirement for homegrown players. We also have Adli coming in, so maybe we should be patient and see what he can do at AMC, with Diaz continuing in a platoon with him. So spend the entire kitty (60-80m) on the best RW and ST that can be brought in. Scamacca and Asensio? I’ll take it. Then spend whatever change is left on a proper backup for Theo and making Florenzi permanent. If CB and CM end up being shallow in 2022-23 we can address it in the summer of 2023.

    Maldini’s Heir – Kalulu has one of the worst statistics for aerial duals in the league. Tomori isn’t strong in that regard either.
    The plan will be to have one of Kjaer/Botman with Tomori/Kalulu.
    I’m not sold on Botman either, but I’ll trust the management. I feel Milenkovic is half the price and just as good.

    Asensio @ 7m per year…no thanks.
