I'm a bit skeptical about Belotti. He's good alright, a fighter that gives 110% every time. But limited technically. So for that amount of money, it's a risk.

I have only seen one whole game of his and he does look a big talent. But forget that goal tally as taken in context it doesn't hold much weight. Celtic won the SPL by 30 points.

I just had a look. They didn't lose one game and scored 87 goals. Rangers didn't even finish 2nd. It's a one horse race nowadays.

I would be careful about Dembele. It's like signing a star striker from the Eredivisie. Could be a spectacular success, but more often than not will flop in a bigger league.

If the price is right it's probably a risk worth taking, but we shouldn't overspend on that dude just because he ran up the numbers in a Mickey mouse league.

I hope Milan had actual scouts instead of people who just check who is hottest in stats and value. Buying a player like Bellotti is already too late in the process of buying you should be in. Splashing on one player without being able to upgrade other posts will be like Juve getting Higuain when they need to upgrade their midfield also.

I am hoping this is the first summer need to get back to CL shopping, we won't be able to over pay or pay lots every summer any way so we do need scouting.

Exactly! Like Donnarumma, right? He proclaimed he's born Milanista and breathes Milan. Now he's shown where his loyalty lies (Raiola & money) So again, why should us fans feel any love for someone who's full of shit, according to your analysis, or even want him?
The point is that none of this matters. It doesn't matter if we believe Donnarumma is spoiled, or where Morata said he feels at home. It matters that we get the best possible players our budget can buy and they perform.

Oscar Cordoba for a couple of years was amazing for a Boca team that was as good as any team in the world, under Bianchi, with Riquelme and company.

Some reports of a breakup between Milan and Raiola.

Yeah, but there has to be a point where you draw the line, no? Even if we are down now, a club of Milan's stature and history can't be strung along by a kid and his fat master just because he's the new-kid-on-the-block, the second coming of Yashin! And at this point I believe Milan did the best it could. Offering an 18yo 4.5m and he's resisting, C'mon!

I hope so. About time to cut off from him. Imagine celebrating freedom from Galliani's dramas only to be stuck with another soap opera master 😂

Right. Let's celebrate instead that we are about lose our most promising player in 20 years! Woohoo. I mean if he is spoiled and his manager is fat, he's got to go.

I might be able to change my "it's on us" if we offer a massive contract and he doesn't take it. I'm not a specialist in player salaries, and that seems like a shitload of money, but also this seems like a special talent. As said before, if we want to keep him we have to bet. If we try and he doesn't stay, so be it. Of course it's understandable that there's a limit to that (a budget), and if we reach it, so be it. It seems like that might be the case, and then there's nothing to criticize in the management.

But "drawing a line" in any other way is nonsense. "Freedom for drama" is what we've had the last five years.

Mirabelli was a scout for Southampton before becoming head scout for Inter. And he has been scouting players for Milan ever since he left Inter.

Losing Donna would be a disaster. I don't care how bad or fat Raiola is or how much money/salary he wants for his player. Milan has its future in our own hands and it will be a crime if we let this golden kid walk away. He is the GK of the future now.

We all want him to stay. But not on any terms. Honestly it's not end of the world if he leaves. So what? The club would fold because of one over-pampered kid? I don't care if he leaves. Milan would be around whether the "golden kid" stays or not. Milan made him, we can make another. Far better players have come and gone.
