AC Milan are hoping to close the operation for Marco Pellegrino with Club Atletico Platense this evening, according to a report.
According to the latest from Gianluca Di Marzio, Pellegrino is the player that the management have chosen as the number one target for the defensive department and they could actually reach an agreement this evening.
Tonight there will be a meeting between the Rossoneri management, the player’s agent and the president of Platense. The total figure should be around €3m plus bonuses and a percentage of future resale.
Given that the initial reports suggested a transfer fee at least double the amount mentioned by Di Marzio, it could well be that Milan are getting a bargain deal for one of the highest rated young defenders in Argentina.
Pellegrino – who has an Italian passport and therefore would not take a non-EU spot – has made 17 appearances for Platense this season, scoring one goal.
