CM: Sevilla left waiting as Milan ponder purchase of centre-back for €3m – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

Sevilla are currently ‘waiting for a signal’ from AC Milan regarding the future of centre-back Simon Kjaer, according to a report.

The Denmark international cut short his time at Atalanta and joined the Rossoneri on a six-month deal, with Milan having confirmed at the time that there is an option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.

According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Milan have been satisfied with the performance offered by Kjaer and are now considering making his stay at San Siro a permanent one.

It would be an operation with a low economic impact, as the option to buy Kjaer was set at €3m as part of the loan agreement, and that will soon be examined by the club’s management.

However, it is also a point of discussion that will have to pass through technical area and in particular the new head coach, who will most likely be Ralf Rangnick – a manager who tends to prefer younger players.

Sevilla are awaiting developments on Kjaer, who has a deal with the Andalusian club until June 2021 but is not part of their project. The Spanish side are confident that Milan will make the move a permanent one.

The mutual desire is to talk to each other soon to find a solution that will satisfy everyone, but the last word will be up to the man in charge of leading the Rossoneri in the next season.
