I'm more worried about who we are gonna sell.

How painful it is to be a Milan fan

More rumors on Kessie leaving, and we’re linked with half a dozen Serie A midfielders.

I'm more worried about who we are going to sign, than sell.

Selling is pretty straightforward. We know Giampaolo is a 4-3-1-2 man, so we need to sell Suso. He's a good one to move considering the amount we paid for him and the likely price he will fetch will make a decent profit.

Castillejo is another that we could consider selling, but the profit is likely to be less than Suso. Plus it may be that Giampaolo could find him a useful player, as unlike Suso he can play in more central positions (and has done so to good effect on occasion).

But when it comes to maximising profit we all know the key player: Donnarumma. If the club can manage its finances without selling him, then obviously keep him. But if money is that tight then it's an easy decision: he has to go. Easily the most valuable player we have in terms of market value, then you factor in his salary on top of that.

You just summarized exactly why I'm worried.

I've no idea how exactly we are supposed to reach the top when we have to sell all our best players.

Exactly why FFP is hard to understand.

Everybody sells. Liverpool lost Coutinho and Suarez and won the CL. Barcelona lost Neymar and won the league. We lost Shevchenko and won the CL. Juve have lost players from Zidane to Pogba and Vidal, and invariably still do well.

Chelsea just sold Hazard but they have Hudson-Odoi and Pulisic lined-up and more than 100 million Euros to spend (if they let them). May work or not, but they clearly prepared.

It’s quite different to when we sold everybody just because Berlusconi was jumping ship.

It’s about finding the right time, the right amounts, and having smart replacements and a good operation in place.

Selling Donna last summer, when we seemed to have crazy money and his contract was running out, seemed like a very bad idea. Selling him now if there’s a crazy offer and when Plizzari starts to look more promising, with Reina in the squad, and when we need money... not necessarily so bad. Same with Suso — our best creative player, but less of a big deal if we don’t play wingers obviously.

What would likely be an unmitigated disaster would be losing Romagnoli right now.

Romagnoli is not leaving Milan, and he won't ask to either.

The ones that seem to be heating up are Suso (Atletico) and Kessié (Spurs). The first seems to me more likely, in part just because Spurs haven't bought anyone in a while so it seems unreal. I'd imagine they'll actually on a shopping spree after all the money they must have made this season, not buying anyone, and likely losing a key player or two on top of that.

I would sell Kessie, Samu, and even Suso (potential 100m) BUT not Donnaruma as he is bringing us points with his saves. Plizzari should be loaned out to a Serie A team and play regularly before making the decision to cash in on Donna.

If possible we should get rid of Borini, RR, Laxalt, Strinic ... saving a lot of salary space and getting few millions in transfers.

But we will need a bunch of mids.

Donna/Reina
Calabria/Conti - Caldara/Musachio-Roma/primavera - X/X
X-X/Biglia-Hakan/Bonna
Paqueta/x
Piantek/primavera-Cutrone/Silva

We will need a starter as right mezzala and a sub, starter before Biglia who hasnt shown anything to prove he deserves to start, starter and sub for left back as RR is one of the worst we have had, and a sub for Paqueta at AMC.

Roul Bellanova gets praised for his games at the u20, does anyone know if he can be useful?

Interesting to read some of the criticism RR gets. I don't see it. First season yes, he was too often a liability. This season just finished he's been a better player, pretty solid and consistent IMO. Having said that, if a good offer was received and he was keen on leaving it's a different story. With smart scouting we could sign a good replacement. But if he wants to stay I'd rather keep him.

zoo, van pretty much covered it with regards to selling players. And we're really not in a position to turn down big offers. Latest figures of the losses we've been running at says it all.

Does anyone know if Zapata is definitely leaving? I don't see why he isn't given another season. He's still a reliable option, sometimes he is great when called upon. Unless he wants to leave and have more regular game time, give him an extension.

Not bad at all.

Hopefully we get a few other mids in that mold. It seems like Barella is gone and Tonali won't be easy to sign this season. The rumor about the Sampdoria Belgian mid was particularly exciting.

When comes to donnarumma, we could double his amount on selling if this is Juve.
That’s how the current situation is.

We have less TV money than we did 5-6 years ago, less sponsorship and NO CL revenue. Do you expect Elliot or another owner to throw in 100-200M every year?

As a big club we're done. Short of Serie A overtaking the EPL in revenue, Elliot selling to a Arab state or an NFL style Superleague.

While we're at it. This is the guy on top of Moncada's list. The first Italian comment on the video is "Please don't come to Milan"
