The redemptions expired yesterday: Milan with different outcomes for the two most expensive loans

The possibility for Serie A clubs to redeem players who arrived on loan with an option a year ago expired at midnight yesterday. As far as Milan is concerned, the operations with this formula have been different, but today we focus on the two most expensive, which ended with diametrically opposite results: De Ketelaere was bought out by Atalanta, while Saelemaekers will return to Milan after the year at Bologna .

De Ketelaere’s figures
De Ketelare paid for the pressure of the 35 million price tag at Milan, experiencing an essentially disastrous season for the Rossoneri. His relaunch in the quieter Bergamo has saved the investment made two years ago by Maldini and Massara: the Orobic team, after having paid 3 million for the onerous loan last summer, will pay another 22 for the redemption, plus 2 in bonus , plus 10% on future resale. 27 million for the overall operation (to which to add the future percentage) with the club which will also be able to count on a positive effect of approximately 7.3 million euros in 2024/2025, relating to the amortization quota which will no longer be among the costs in the budget .

The future of Saelemaekers
Bologna’s failure to buy Alexis Saelemaekers temporarily caused a maximum of 12 million to be “blown away” from the Rossoneri’s coffers. However, during this transfer market session, Milan is convinced that they can monetize his transfer. Saelemaekers had an excellent season with Bologna and in via Aldo Rossi they are waiting for concrete proposals, also because with Christian Pulisic and Samuel Chukwueze, the spaces in his role are quite clogged. His future will therefore be far from Milanello and in via Aldo Rossi they are awaiting offers from some club that could be interested in the Belgian after the positive year on loan at the Emilian club.
