Benfica chief on Florentino Luis rumours: “Will he go to Milan this summer? I don’t think so”

By Oliver Fisher -

Benfica’s general director Tiago Pinto has thrown serious doubt on any idea of Florentino Luis joining AC Milan in the summer window.

The Rossoneri’s midfield department looks set to undergo changes this summer, as Lucas Biglia has left and Rade Krunic is attracting interest from Torino, while Lucas Paqueta could also leave.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reported earlier today that Milan have not given up on the idea of signing Florentino to reinforce the midfield, who is valued at €30million by Benfica.

Calciomercato.com reporter Daniele Longo recently reported how the agent of Florentino met with the management of Benfica on Thursday to take stock of his client’s situation, but there was no progress regarding a contract renewal, adding that the player wants to move to Milan and for him the idea of leaving Benfica is still well and truly open.

However, Tiago Pinto spoke to Sky about the future of Florentino, seeming to suggest that a sale is off the cards.

“Florentino is a young player with potential and quality, I believe he will continue to play for Benfica. Will he go to Milan this summer? I don’t think so,” he said (via MilanNews).
