Transfer Talk - Morata and Zaha


Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport report that Spanish striker Alvaro Morata has decided to snub Chelsea and Manchester United and has instead agreed to join AC Milan. The British press have predictably mentioned Arsenal but they have never realistically been in the running.

The Italian league is a league he knows well having spent a successful period at Juventus. Milan are to pay him an annual salary of £6.5 million (€7.5m - AUS$11.28m - US$8.41m). That equates to £125,000-a-week.

A fee has yet to be agreed between Milan and Real Madrid but it is thought the Italians have offered £51.97 million  (€60m - AUS$90.20m - US$67.26m).

The reports that Tottenham were cooling their interest in Wilfried Zaha turned out to be true and I'm not surprised given the suggested transfer fee. I did a post on the output of three of our transfer targets, Douglas Costa, Bruma and Wilfried Zaha and the Crystal Palace man came comfortably bottom of the pile.


Goals: 1st Bruma, 2nd Costa, 3rd Zaha
Assists: 1st Zaha, 2nd Bruma, 3rd Costa
Pass Completion: 1st Bruma, 2nd Costa, 3rd Zaha
Key Passes: 1st Costa, 2nd Bruma, 3rd Zaha
Shooting: 1st Costa, 2nd Bruma, 3rd Zaha
Accuracy: 1st Bruma, 2nd Zaha, 3rd Costa
Successful take-ons: 1st Bruma, 2nd Costa, 3rd Zaha
Chances Created: 1st Costa, 2nd Bruma, 3rd Zaha

Costa (£25m): 1st 3, 2nd 3, 3rd 2
Bruma (£9m): 1st 4, 2nd 4, 3rd 0
Zaha (£30m): 1st 1, 2nd 1, 3rd 6

Douglas Costa understandably wants to go to Juventus, they are guaranteed titles each season, Zaha is simply too expensive for what he provides and having communicated the message to him that other options are more attractive, plus the fact that we will not match the wage he has been offered at Palace, he has signed a new deal.

I can't say I'm disappointed, talented yes, but he doesn't strike me as someone who fits our team ethic and someone who would shine within a unit, he strikes me as more of an individual player.

  1. We as ac Milan must not spend almost all off our money to a one striker, even if he"s Morata! Instead we should target really hard to sign cheaper options from Premier league, like Shelsea"s Michy Batshuayi or Man City"s Kelechi Iheanacho, who both need badly playing time, which we can offer, and they"re also both really young, talented and proven goalscorers, who will fit to our teams young core perfectly! And if we can sign one off those to strikers, then we can afford to buy another world class player, like great midfielder Corentin Tolisso from Lyon or another central defender like De Vriev or Caio!

  2. Clear ur statement above shows u don't really know who we as acmilan are . Acmilan is a big club and not an average club who needs to buy all the players you have mentioned . Brv we are acmilan the great , buying big players , spending big and winning all the big trophies and championships is our DNA . Go and do ur history about who acmilan is so you don't confuse your feelings with reality .
