By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have reportedly sealed a deal for Bordeaux midfielder Yacine Adli via an interesting formula that has now been explained.

According to the latest from, Milan’s sporting director Frederic Massara has reached a total agreement with Bordeaux for Yacine Adli after a long and difficult negotiation with the Ligue 1 club, who did not want to lose their 21-year-old talent.

A deal was struck on the basis of an €8m fixed fee plus bonuses and the player is already on his way to Italy to undergo his medical and the signing of the contract, with touchdown in Italy scheduled for the afternoon.

The news gathered in the last few hours is that the midfielder will stay at Bordeaux on loan for a season. Daniele Longo of adds that there is a reason they agreed to the loan: Milan will save €7m compared to the first requests of Bordeaux and the loan allows the player to have more continuity at his current team.

  1. Pointless move. So we dont have any faith in tonali, bakayoko and pobega and need another midfielder??? Dumb. We need attackers not more mids.

    1. I believe that this is the future planning of the management. One among Bennacer or Kessie is sure gonna leave Milan after this season and so the management has gone ahead with this signing.

    2. Lol @ Zoro Caloro. This is a great signing. He’s on loan and will not come to us until next season so it has no impact on Tonali or Bakayoko – it’s also insurance in the event Kessie leaves for free or is sold – which is highly likely at this point. Smart move the kid is a prodigy and signed him for a great price. Yes we need a RW. Hope we sign Fairve he should be an absolute must. Pobega is a mezzala not a double pivot that’s why they loaned him. They loaned him as opposed to sell in case we change system/coach. If we sign a RW – then I will be happy. Faivre at all costs (who can also play CAM to cover Diaz).

  2. Love this move. It’s what Juventus was really good at. Buy a player for less but let them keep developing at another club. Good sight for the future. It’s obvious that one of our midfielders will move on or not work out.
