AC Milan are looking to sign a midfielder before the transfer window closes but with a limited budget, it’s proving to be a difficult task. Jean Onana has been linked with the club but the negotiations are yet to unlock.
The Bordeaux midfielder, born in 2000, is seemingly one of the primary targets for Milan. However, the Rossoneri’s budget is not high and thus they have been unable to reach a breakthrough in the negotiations with the French side.
According to the credible journalist Clement Carpentier, negotiations are still ongoing between the clubs. Milan have €10m to spend on two positions (centre-back as well) and are looking for the best solutions to make this happen.
Paolo Maldini made the following offer yesterday: a €2m paid loan with an obligation to buy at €3-4m. Bordeaux rejected the offer as they only want a permanent deal with the following demands: €6m fixed fee, €1m in bonuses and a future resale %.
Onana, for his part, has already agreed to a long-term contract with Milan as the journalist concludes. It remains to be seen if Milan will make a new attempt for the player, especially with the Lucas Paqueta money coming (read here).
