Alessandro Buongiorno’s Price Tag Could Compromise Milan Switch

Alessandro Buongiorno has emerged as one of the top defensive targets for Milan ahead of the summer transfer window. However, the 24-year-old will not exit Torino without an obsolete amount of money as Calciomercato took stock of his potential price tag. 

Buongiorno is arguably Torino’s most prized asset. His meteoric rise has not gone under the radar, turning him into one of the hottest prospects in Serie A. Milan and Juventus are among the Italy international’s most high-profile admirers. 

But the center-back’s suitors will probably have to dig deep into their pockets to prise him out from the Stadio Olimpico di Torino. Indeed, it could take up to €35 million to convince the Granata to give up their homegrown star. 

Torino’s stane will unlikely waver, considering Buongiorno’s contract expires in 2028. But Milan can’t afford to bargain. After a dreadful defensive campaign, the Serie A runners-up must open their wallet to fix things at the back.

Milan could face stiff competition from Juventus, especially if Gleison Bremer completes a heavily rumored switch to the Premier League. On top of that, Buongiorno’s price tag could skyrocket if things go to plan at Euro 2024, suggesting time could be a decisive factor.

Dealing with Torino president Urbano Cairo is nothing short of an insurmountable task. Napoli had to discover Cairo’s stubbornness the hard way in January as he comfortably rebuffed their lucrative offer of €25m plus Leo Ostigard. 

Let’s see if Milan can succeed where the Partenopei failed. Meanwhile, Juventus could offer wantaway Napoli captain Giovanni Di Lorenzo an escape route from the Diego Maradona Stadium
