CorSera: Correa ‘very close’ to €40m Milan move – details of the deal…

By Oliver Fisher -

Angel Correa is ‘very close’ to completing his move to AC Milan at long last, according to the latest reports.

Correa is the player that Milan have been linked with the most throughout the summer, and La Gazzetta dello Sport claimed earlier on Tuesday that Milan are going ‘full speed ahead’ for the Argentine.

This is despite Marco Giampaolo telling Sky Italia (via Football Italia) after the defeat against Udinese that he is considering scrapping the 4-3-1-2 in favour of a 4-3-3.

Now, the online edition of il Corriere della Sera is reporting that a deal for Correa is ‘very close’ as the Rossoneri management believe he is a versatile attacking player.

The report states that those in power are convinced that the 24-year-old can play either as a trequartista, a second striker or even as a winger, meaning he is still the ideal fit for the club.

A ‘draft agreement’ has been reached on a €40million deal – il Corriere della Sera adds – of which €35m are fixed and €5m are bonuses.

Atletico will also receive 30 percent of proceeds from any future resale, and the report ends by stating that the fact Correa trained alone on Monday suggests an imminent conclusion.
