Crotone director says there is ‘no meeting planned’ with Milan over want-away winger

By Isak Möller -

Despite reports in the last few hours, AC Milan are not expected to meet Crotone to discuss the future of Junior Messias later this week. This was confirmed by the Serie B side’s sporting director. 

Last night, Gianluca Di Marzio reported that the Rossoneri are considering signing Messias from Crotone this summer. The asking price is €10m and Paolo Maldini is looking for a winger to reinforce the squad before it’s too late.

Additional reports this morning suggested that there could be a meeting during the week between Milan and Crotone. However, in an interview with Ok Calciomercato, the latter’s sporting director Beppe Ursino has denied the reports of a meeting.

“There is no meeting planned with Milan. Messias will leave Crotone before the end of the transfer market, but at the moment there is nothing concrete. He is certainly of interest to Milan, but also to other Serie A clubs who have asked for him,” he stated.

The Rossoneri may be interested but the feeling is that they have a few other names above Messias on their transfer wish list. But everything can happen on the market and especially in the final days of it.

    Winger ? he is classified as a 2nd striker who can play as a cam and a cm on trabsfermarkt.

    He played as a winger for Crotone and had a great season in Serie A individually. I’m surprised nobody has picked him up yet.

    Now this guy is barely Milan quality considering his age and all, but if he’s going to be Castillejo’s successor then I fully support this. Compared to Castillejo he’s Maradona.

    Hell even if he fails miserably it’s still a win for us because we will get rid of Castillejo. That’s a win in itself.

      Ok thanks for the clarification Kourosh in regard of him playing on the wing in serie a last season.
