AC Milan pulled out all the stops to try and get Romain Faivre to join in the last 48 hours of the transfer window, it has been revealed.
According to Calciomercato.com reporter Daniele Longo (via MilanPosts), Milan’s management gave the green light for the Faivre deal to go ahead and a private jet was all ready to take the French player to Italy. However, Brest kept on asking for €15m in a single payment and refused €12m plus €3m – Milan’s final offer.
In January there could be further talks about a deal for the 23-year-old given that he is a player the management clearly admire, so it might be that the saga is far from over yet.
A number of sources wrote how the the Milan management tried to sign Faivre from Brest and kept talks alive for as long as they could, even making two offers, but the Ligue 1 side decided to take him off the market because they were upset about his behaviour.
