Another twist in the Conti saga

By Anthony Torgrude -

Over the past weekend the long drawn out negotiation for Andrea Conti was considered over with the player having accepted terms long ago and the clubs finally finding an agreement. A new set back is now on the table.

According to Sky Sports, Atalanta will not give the okay for Conti to finalize his transfer until after the club signs a replacement. So far there are no known targets in negotiations with Atalanta and this could be a timely process.

The highly touted Right Back was originally thought to be the third signing of the summer for Milan has suddenly became the seventh and now is possibly going to be even later in the window.

Also Pessina is expected to be inserted in the deal and that has yet to be resolved. Conti’s Milan medical was originally planned to be for Tuesday July 4th but things are looking increasingly unlikely for this date.
