The wheels are in motion regarding AC Milan’s interest in a Barcelona defender as a meeting was held with an intermediary, a report claims.
According to what is being reported by Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com, Maldini and Massara met with an intermediary of Junior Firpo yesterday, as they consider the 24-year-old Barcelona man to be an ideal deputy to Theo Hernandez. It seems therefore that the Dominica-born full-back is the name Milan are working on with the most determination.
However, Longo then adds that that the Rossoneri are only willing to acquire Firpo with a loan formula. In the same was as the Diogo Dalot loan deal worked with Manchester United, it could act as a trial period of sorts during which the management can assess whether he is the right long-term option for the position or whether they should look at other options in summer 2022.
