Milan unlikely to take up their option to buy Saelemaekers (Calciomercato)

Published on: 08 April 2020

Milan are unlikely to take up their option to buy Alexis Saelemaekers from Anderlecht, so have spent €3.5m on so far just 32 minutes of football.

The 20-year-old right-sided winger was signed in January on loan for €3.5m with option to buy for another €3.5m.

However, he made only three appearances for the Rossoneri – two in Serie A and one in the Coppa Italia – as a substitute, for a grand total of 32 minutes on the pitch.

According to, a decision has already been made not to buy Saelemaekers outright.

His loan is therefore destined to end and the cost of the operation does not reflect his performances.
