CorBergamo: Atalanta forward would be happy to join Milan but no discounts are offered

By Oliver Fisher -

Atalanta forward Josip Ilicic would gladly accept a move to AC Milan but he will not be allowed to leave for a cut-price fee, a report claims.

According to il Corriere di Bergamo (via MilanNews) this morning, the chance of seeing Ilicic at Milan have risen again. The Rossoneri would be very welcome to the Slovenia international as a potential destination, but Atalanta have no intention of giving any discounts to a rival.

They have set an asking price of €5-6m for the 33-year-old, with directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara observing the situation. They have not yet submitted an official offer to the Bergamo-based club, but the player’s fall-out with head coach Gian Piero Gasperini could aid their pursuit.

Ilicic has 56 goals and 38 assists in 145 appearances for Atalanta, showing that he can contribute consistently to the attack, but he is certainly not the kind of profile that Elliott Management usually invest in given his age.
