AC Milan have a verbal agreement with Internacional striker Yuri Alberto but do not yet have one with his club, according to a report.
TMW were the first to report that Alberto is the latest Brazilian talent who has found his way onto Milan’s list of targets. He has already scored 18 goals this season in all competitions and is just 20 years of age, so the management instructed intermediaries to get in touch over a deal.
According to Brazilian source Torcedores, Milan have found a verbal agreement with Alberto over terms and are now trying to reach an agreement with Internacional but there is a big gap between the €10m that has been offered and the €20m demands of the Brazilian club.
Initially Internacional wanted €80m to sell Alberto but have since dropped it, though Milan’s first bid was rejected immediately. The plan of Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara is to increase the value of the offer through bonuses if the player achieves certain objectives.
Internacional will not begin negotiations for less than €20m but are braced for a new offer, while the player is pushing the board to accept Milan’s offer as he believes a move to Europe would put him on the radar for the Brazilian national team.
Yuri Alberto is considered by the Diavolo to be the ideal replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is expected to retire at the end of the season.

Why sign another player who Pioli will never play? Maybe he should first learn to use Junior Messias and Pietro Pellegri. Last season, he had Hauge and did not let the boy play.
…I don’t see why Milan is buying players. Pioli will still play Rade Krunic, Alexis Saelemaekers, and Samu Castillejo.
And they so far didn’t disappoint too much, maybe you forget to check where we are in Serie A table?
It’s becoming obvious that Messias was a mistake. Gets signed, not fit, plays 20 minutes, gets injured & now out for a while again.
Messias has been injured. You expect him to field injured players now?
I swear you people deserve the Milan of the past 8 years. Playing terrible football and languishing mid-table.
What Milan need is bench. They need first ,second and third team respectively. We need vibrant and versatile players,rather they are busy seeing players for other teams the management really want to turn Milan to Arsenal is appalled for a team like Milan looking for a player of 10-15m and it’s bad we need bench that just it
