AC Milan close Conti deal at €20million plus player – report

By Oliver Fisher -

After a long drawn out saga, it appears that AC Milan are closing in on the signing of Andrea Conti.

Recent reports have suggested that the Atalanta defender is keen on a move to Milan, but Atalanta were not willing to let go of another prized young asset.

Now, Premium Sport state that the Rossoneri and Atalanta will close for €20million plus one of Primavera duo Matteo Pessina and Gian Filippo Felicioli.

Last week, Conti’s agent confirmed his intention to take his client to Milan.

“Atalanta knew of my meeting with Milan. I told them about everything, and they never told me that Conti was unsellable,” he said.

“I know very well that he has a 4-year contract, but they should’ve told me before that he was unsellable.

“I’m sure Conti will go to Milan because serious people always keeps their word and President Percassi is a serious person.

“Atalanta cannot hinder the growth of young players. Conti will go to Milan in a way or another.”
