CorSera: Milan optimistic over sealing €55m deal; two sales needed first

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are reportedly ready to resume talks with Atletico Madrid for Angel Correa on Monday and are confident of reaching an agreement.

With five summer signings already through the door, it appears that Correa is now the primary target for Paolo Maldini and the rest of the hierarchy.

We recently revealed that personal terms have been agreed with the Argentine, who wants a move to the Rossoneri, but that there is still a distance between the two clubs in terms of a transfer fee.

Diego Simeone gave an update on the player’s future on Saturday by hinting that he could be allowed to leave, while reports on Sunday have claimed that Milan are ready to be patient.

According to Sunday’s il Corriere della Sera edition, Milan are ready to resume their ‘assault’ for Correa next week. 

At present, there is a €10million difference between the demand and the offer on the table, with Atletico holding out for €55m to part with the Argentina.

However, the report claims that there are feelings of optimism from Milan regarding the deal, and the player’s will is expected to be key.

Diego Laxalt’s move to Parma can help finance the deal, but the big departure would be Andre Silva. His sale could allow Milan to close a deal sooner rather than later.
