AC Milan will go back in for Shakhtar Donetsk playmaker Taison in the January transfer window, according to a report.
We revealed late in the mercato via our transfer expert Vito Angele that attempts were being made by the Rossoneri to sign the Brazilian.
We were told that Milan made an offer of loan with obligation to buy under certain conditions, however that notion was rejected by Shakhtar.
The player himself was fuming with Shakhtar’s decision to deny him the move, posting on his Instagram story: ‘Congratulations on ending my dream’.
According to the latest report from Calciomercato.com, Milan are likely to go back in for the 31-year-old once the window reopens in January.
Shakhtar’s valuation of Taison was €30million during the summer, but Paolo Maldini and the rest of the leadership were only willing to pay €15-20m.
As a result, if a deal is to get tied up in the winter, Milan will be hoping that the Ukrainian side lower their asking price.
Taison has two goals and three assists in just four league games already this season.
