Possible departure for Nikola Kalinić. Our striker number 7 and Milan roads should separate in the summer. The striker has not confirmed, with the Rossoneri, the good things seen in Florence and Milan intends to sell him to get some cash back with which to buy a first class striker. Despite the definitely negative season, Kalinic still has a fair market and his entourage would have been contacted by several clubs. In particular, according to what is reported by tuttomercatoweb.com, Spartak Moscow and Schalke 04 would have come forward for the Croatian, as the German team will lose the young Max Meyer in the summer. The ’95 class midfielder is a Milan market goal.
AC Milan would actually prefer to sell him to a Chinese team to get as much as possible from his card, but would also be satisfied with a sale in Europe. The Rossoneri have spent 25 million euros for the Croatian (10 million for the onerous loan plus 15 for the compulsory redemption), a figure that will hardly be able to recover in the summer market, however there should be no problems to sell him.
Why does Milan want to sell Kalinić?
AC Milan is not convinced by the player’s performances at all. He has been bought to reinforce the attacking sector, but looking at the current statistics, he has been, among the 3 best attackers at Milanello, the least prolific one in all competitions (Cutrone 15, André Silva 10, Kalinić 5). With Fiorentina the player scored 27 goals in 2 seasons, which is not that bad. For the amount of money spent for him, Fassone and Mirabelli were hoping for many more goals, to give you an idea of how much difference there is between his value and his performances, each goal scored by the Croatian costed 5 million euros to Milan.
Fassone and Mirabelli still did not mention any possible replacement for the player, but for sure they will look for an important attacker on the European market.
