CM: Why AC Milan missed out on Sensi in the summer

By Isak Möller -

This summer, Stefano Sensi nearly ended up at AC Milan as he decided to leave Sassuolo, ready to start an adventure with a bigger club. However, the move eventually broke down, and the midfielder joined Inter instead.

The Italian has been a success for the Nerazzurri under the management of Antonio Conte, scoring three goals and assisting an additional four in the league. Just six games in, therefore, he is already a fan favourite.

However, things could have been very different. As Calciomercato.com reports, Milan were very interested in bringing in Sensi this summer, starting negotiations with Sassuolo over a potential two-year loan with an option to buy.

The Neroverdi didn’t exactly appreciate this offer, the report continues, and then Inter decided to join the race. Rather than a two-year deal, they offered to take him on a season-long loan with an option to buy next summer, which was accepted.
