Torino Brass Addresses Milan Interest in Buongiorno

Milan are eyeing Alessandro Buongiorno, but Torino are putting up a strong resistance as far as the January window is concerned. The budding center-back already has a hefty price tag that will likely continue to grow. Considering Theo Hernandez’s excellent showings in the middle, the Rossoneri might postpone their search for a new man to the summer, La Gazzetta dello Sport relays (via Tuttomercatoweb).

The Granata president Urbano Cairo addressed the murmurs to Rai Radio 1.

“Buongiorno to Milan? No, no. We renewed his contract till 2028. I don’t want to sell him, and he wants to stay. That’s it. He’s growing a lot. Lorenzo Colombo is a nice player, but I don’t want to part ways with our defender.”

The patron also dispelled some past rumors about Andrea Belotti, whom they refused to cash in on at the right time and eventually lost for nothing at the end of his contract.

“I’ve never received a €100M offer for him. That was the amount of his release clause, but nobody came close to it. No team even proposed €50M for him. The highest bid was €20M.”

Coach Ivan Juric weighed on Buongiorno and repelled the Milan advances too during his pre-game presser.

“We don’t always need to talk about being sellers in the transfer market. He’s a Torino player, and we’re halfway through the season. We have to continue on our path.”
