Athletic: Milan to sign ‘one of Real Madrid’s top talents’ who will train with first team

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will soon complete the signing of full-back Alex Jimenez who is considered one of the brightest prospects in Real Madrid’s academy, a report claims.

The Athletic describe Jimenez as ‘one of Real Madrid’s top talents’ and confirm that he is departing Spain to try a new experience at Milan, with the player on the way to Italy to complete the move.

Jimenez will sign a one-year loan deal with option to buy as per the report, with the 18-year-old full-back deciding to join the Rossoneri despite having signed a new deal at Madrid last year.

The report adds that he has been one of the highest earners in the club’s La Fabrica academy as a reflection of how highly he is rated.

The teenager is expected to train with the first team at Milan but will feature predominantly in the Primavera side coached by Ignazio Abate, with particular attention on how he does in the UEFA Youth League.

  1. Hopefully we can do what we did with Theo with him. We need a star RB. He’s very young though and has had a run-in with coaches.

  2. It one year loan deal with option to buy. That mean Real can get him any time he’s ready. If it was like this real will bring Theo back long time ago.

    1. Real Madrid dont have buy back clause . ACM can put him on primavera with abate or take him to preseason in USA
