AC Milan must first ship players out before they can afford to seal a deal for Atletico Madrid forward Angel Correa, it is claimed.
Milan appear to be no closer to landing Correa despite having agreed personal terms with him some time ago.
The Argentine is understood to be keen on a move to Milan, but Atletico to this point are refusing to lower their €50m asking price in what is becoming a tedious transfer saga.
Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio – on the program ‘Calciomercato – L’originale’ – offered a vital update on the mercato situation.
“The outgoing Milan market is trying to sell players bought by previous managements and not currently considered by Milan,” Di Marzio revealed.
“The incoming name remains Correa. Before Milan had offered more to Atletico relying on the sale of Silva, now Milan has lowered the offer.
“Correa is waiting for Milan, he said no to the other teams. There will be alternatives but he is the main goal that the Milan managers would like to bring to the Rossoneri “
