AC Milan appear to have missed out on signing Amine Adli from Toulouse for the time being, according to a report.
It is no secret that Milan always have their eyes on the French market as seen by the signings of Rafael Leao from Lille, Pierre Kalulu from Lyon and most recently goalkeeper Mike Maignan. Calciomercato.com writes that Ricky Massara’s idea was to add the name of Adli to the squad, but it seems Milan will be disappointed.
That is because Adli has chosen to stay and play in France, at least for another season, because the 21-year-old wants to continue his growth in Ligue 1 as an intermediate step before moving to a big foreign team.
French champions Lille have gained pole position over Marseille in the last few hours and could close a deal very soon. Milan offered €5m plus €2m bonuses, an offer considered low by Toulouse. The future remains to be seen, and Milan could be at the window again in 2022.
