Conflicting news continues to emerge regarding whether AC Milan are in fact on the verge of signing Alessandro Florenzi from Roma.
According to il Corriere di Roma (via MilanNews), everything is at a standstill regarding Florenzi’s move to Milan. There is an agreement between the player and the Rossoneri, but one with Roma is still missing and if the Rossoneri management do not accept a loan with obligation to buy (rather than just an option) the Giallorossi will not let the full-back leave.
This is largely because they want to avoid repeating what has happened in the last two seasons during which the 30-year-old was sent out on season-long loans to both Valencia and PSG with options to buy inserted.
At the end of the loan both decided not to redeem Florenzi, which has left them in the situation where – for the third summer in a row – they are having to find new accommodation for him.
