After the sale of Rade Krunic to Fenerbahce, AC Milan can count on making more money through exits as Junior Messias will become a permanent Genoa player.
After the arrival of Christian Pulisic, Samuel Chukwueze and Luka Romero in the summer transfer window, the decision was made to allow Messias to find a new club after a couple of seasons at Milan, and Genoa was where he ended up.
The Brazilian joined the Grifone on a season-long loan with an option to buy that would become an obligation under the achievement of certain conditions, and according to Calciomercato.com all of the boxes were ticked yesterday.
They write that the point obtained yesterday by Genoa against Torino did not only make the Rossoblù coach Gilardino happy but also Milan, because the clause for the mandatory buy-out of Messias was triggered.
The Rossoneri will not make a fortune from his sale, but around €3m will enter the accounts which for a player over 30 who was not part of the plans constitutes a fair return. He has nine appearances and one goal for them this season.
As a reminder, it was confirmed yesterday that Krunic has been sold to Fenerbahce on a loan with obligation to buy deal.
