Brest director claims he is ‘disappointed’ by Faivre but Milan are ‘far from an agreement’

By Oliver Fisher -

Brest sporting director Grégory Lorenzi has seemingly confirmed that AC Milan are in talks over a deal for playmaker Romain Faivre.

Everything seems to be pointing towards Faivre being Milan’s number one target as they look to give head coach Stefano Pioli a new playmaker before the window closes on Tuesday, with multiple sources claiming that an initial €10m bid was sent by Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara.

MilanNews even reported how Faivre did not leave with the rest of the Brest squad for their trip to face Strasbourg today, and the reason is linked to the transfer market, as the player is at the centre of a negotiation between Milan and the Ligue 1 club.

Lorenzi spoke to Telegramme Sport ahead of today’s game against Strasbourg in Ligue 1, and he was asked about why Faivre was left out of the squad for the game, with his comments relayed by AC Milan France on Twitter.

“We refused a first offer from a club for Faivre. We are far from an agreement. He did not want to take a risk in view of the discussions with the club in question, but it is not us who retain him. He disappointed me,” he said.
