Adding fuel to the fire of Belotti's impending departure, however, is the fact he, one of the club's biggest stars, was missing from Torino's kit launch on Sunday.
Cairo didn't appreciate Milan's managing director, Marco Fassone, saying that "it'd be nice to have one between Belotti, Morata and Aubameyang, let's see who will be chosen".
Milan have spent big in the current transfer window, with the shock signing of Leonardo Bonucci from Juventus adding to the captures of Andrea Conti, Andre Silva, Hakan Calhanoglu, Franck Kessie and others.
The 23-year-old striker's stock has risen dramatically after a marvelous 2016-17 campaign that saw him make 38 appearances in all competitions for the Italian side. He strikes the ball well with both feet and his head, moves constantly and links up better with the midfield since he played for Juventus.
"For me, Aubameyang will be the best player to adapt for the Conte system".
Now with Morata seemingly available again, Chelsea looked strong favourites to land the Spanish international - till AC Milan made this late swoop. "We will wait a few more days, but not long anymore".
With Diego Costa's future still to be resolved, Chelsea's striker problem is growing, and whilst splashing out for Morata would please Conte, it may not be what the club want.
Toasting to a successful new season with President Li Yonghong!
AC Milan have been the most active team in the transfer market by far. Instead, they have now been forced to look at other options. Often described as hot-headed yet inconceivable commitment to the cause, Belotti has an excellent defensive record. Torino president Urbano Cairo has already rebuffed previous suitors by saying that he would not settle for anything below the exorbitant release clause, but it appears that Milan are close to striking a deal.
