AC Milan have seen their latest bid for Angel Correa rejected – a complex offer involving a loan spell – according to a report.
As we head into the final few days of the 2019 summer transfer window, the Correa saga continues to rumble on.
We reported back in July that personal terms have been agreed with Correa and that all that was needed was agreement with Atletico over a fee.
It was recently claimed by il Corriere della Sera that Milan and Atleti have a ‘draft agreement’ over a deal totalling €40million.
Goal Espana‘s Ruben Uria provided his take on things this Wednesday, claiming that Milan’s offer for the 24-year-old up until this point is in fact only €25million.
Now, Gianluca Di Marzio (via @GuillaumeMP on Twitter) has claimed that the Rossoneri made a two-year loan offer worth €10million (€5m per season).
In addition, the Sky Italia journalist claims that there was an option to buy set at €25m that becomes an obligation if Correa plays over 45 games of 45 minutes or more over the two seasons.
However, Di Marzio adds that the offer was rejected by Atletico Madrid.
La dernière offre du Milan a l’Atletico pour #Correa : prêt payant de deux ans à 10M (5 et 5), option d’achat à 25M qui devient obligatoire si le joueur dispute au moins 45 matchs à minimum 45 minutes lors de ces deux saisons. Proposition refusée. Via @DiMarzio
