AC Milan would have liked to have given Benfica midfielder Florentino Luis to head coach Stefano Pioli as a reinforcement, a report claims.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reported earlier in the month that Milan have not given up on the idea of signing Florentino to reinforce the midfield, who is valued at €30million by Benfica.
According to Wednesday’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanLive), Florentino has indeed been a profile that the management have been monitoring as an option to bolster that particular department following the departure of Lucas Biglia.
However, the track that leads to the 20-year-old is full of obstacles, and the biggest obstacle is represented by Benfica who have placed a valuation upon the player ranging from €30-50m.
In addition, Benfica’s general director Tiago Pinto seems to have put up a wall regarding the sale of the starlet, stating in an interview: “Florentino is a young man with potential and quality. I don’t think he will go to Milan this summer.”
