CM: Messias waiting for a call from Milan – the factors at play in his future

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan must soon make a decision on the future of the players they have on loan with an option to buy, and Junior Messias falls into that category.

Calciomercato.com report that Messias is currently on vacation but with his mobile phone always at hand while waiting for a call from Milan. At present, the Rossoneri have not yet begun talks with Crotone over the permanent signing of the Brazilian, but Stefano Pioli and the management hold him in high regard after a debut season with six goals.

Milan would like to renegotiate the €5.5m option to buy agreed last summer but there are other factors that will affect the eventual decision too, such as the fact that Maldini and Massara intend to sign a quality right winger.

With Samu Castillejo on his way out and a new signing on the way in, having both Messias and Alexis Saelemaekers in the squad would be too much, so Junior will have to wait a few more days before he has a clearer idea of ​​what his team will be, with Monza lurking.
