Negotiations between CSKA and Milan stalled
This should not surprise domestic fans. Yes, the Italian grand is more than interested in the leader
- What Milan offers: According to insider Nikola Skira, the Rossoneri are ready to shell out five million euros for a lease with the possibility of redemption for 20 million. Truth,
red-blackinsist that the ransom will not be mandatory.
- What do army men want: € 35 million for a full transfer service and no rental agreements.
CSKA’s position is correct. Nikola Vlasic is the main star
Leaving is more real than ever
In 2018, CSKA left a number of leaders: Pontus Wernbloom, the Berezutsky brothers, Sergey Ignashevich, Alexander Golovin – the team was in for a big restructuring. One of the newcomers at that time was Vlašić, who was refused a chance at Everton. The stars were formed: the army team got the best RPL player of the last three seasons, tearing opponents
And even if the last season was as unsuccessful for the Croatian as it was for the whole CSKA (34 matches / 12 goals and 6 assists / a catastrophic sixth place in the Russian championship), it is obvious that interest in Nicolas will not diminish.
“Russia and Moscow are beautiful as a country and a metropolis, but there are better leagues and clubs,” said the footballer’s father Josko Vlašić in a conversation with Slobodna Dalmacija. “And it would be nice to get closer to home. Nikola did a lot for CSKA, achieved a lot for himself individually, but the team could not always match his level. He needs a new challenge. “
CSKA was light on bones, but prevented Vlašić from leaving for Zenit. In the case of Europe, it will be almost impossible to stop the Croatian star.
What can get in the way
The integrity of the parties and / or the desire of CSKA to squeeze the most out of Vlašić’s departure. I recall the failed transfer of Fedor Chalov to Crystal Palace: in the summer of 2019, the top scorer of the Russian championship (15 goals) was already dreaming of leaving for England. However, as the foreign press wrote, the army team did not plan to part with the striker and repeatedly raised the price tag (first to 20, then to 25 million).
The deal eventually fell through. Chalov stayed with CSKA, turning from the league’s top scorer into a reserve player. During this time, the cost of a football player, according to Transfermarkt, dropped to 10 million.
Sad experience of cooperation with Milan
Remember Keisuke Honda, who scored the most beautiful goal against Sevilla, who gave CSKA a historic entrance to the Champions League quarterfinals in 2010? So, it is the Japanese who is called the most unloved player of Yevgeny Giner. The reason is the president’s deception
So CSKA missed 20 million.
“We often went to reduce the amount of the transfer for the sake of the image of the club. So it was with everyone. The only footballer I didn’t sell out of principle is Honda. I didn’t get a dime for it on principle. All because he deceived us. Honda said that he would extend the contract, but it turned out that he had promised this to make it easier for him to leave for Milan, ”Giner admitted in 2016 on Match TV.
