After making seven signings and with an eighth to follow soon in Yunus Musah, AC Milan are now looking to raise some money and/or free wages with some exits.
Calciomercato.com confirm that Ante Rebic will fly to Turkey tomorrow to sign a two-year deal with Besiktas, and Junior Messias could also follow him in the next few days.
The Turkish club are pressing to get the green light from the Brazilian winger who has asked 48 hours to decide whether to accept a move to Istanbul or not.
Besiktas’ first offer to Milan for Messias was considered low but they have promised a raise, so much so that there is a good chance of reaching an agreement soon, at least between the clubs. Then the choice will be up to the player to decide.
Another player destined to leave Milan in the short term is Divock Origi. The Belgian centre-forward wanted to redeem his disastrous first season with the Rossoneri but both coach Pioli and the club made him understand he is not considered part of the plans.
As a result, he may now become open to the idea of moving to Saudi Arabia, something he rejected at the end of June when the situation was different. Milan cross their fingers, because a sale of would make room for a new signing in attack.
