Rumors began circulating that both directors of Milan have embarked on a secret mission to sign an unknown player. Some facts have come to light about this trip and who it is for.
Originally, Milan were scheduled to meet with an intermediary of Kalinic but the meeting was canceled according to Corriere Della Sport because the duo had left on their mission.
We do know the trip is real and that the pair left yesterday. The location is not concrete, but is believed to be London. Note that just because they are in London does not mean the player is on a team based there.
Gazzetta believes the player dubbed Mr. X is not the two we’ve heard about for so long in Belotti and Aubameyang and they have also eliminated the prospect of Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez, but believe the negotiations have already begun.
According to MilanNews.it, Mirabelli has returned to Milano this morning but Fassone was not mentioned. The idea of a secret new player is not unknown to this management as Bonucci, Calhanoglu and Andre Silva all seemed rapid fire deals but in actuality were secretly negotiated.
