AC Milan’s summer mercato may not be over after all but an issue must be quickly resolved if Samu Castillejo’s exit is to go through.
According to the latest information gathered by the Russian source Eurostavka (via MilanLive), Milan and CSKA Moscow are in talks over a deal for Castillejo but they have hit a stumbling block a day before the window closes for Russian Premier League clubs.
This is because CSKA have no intention of including an option or obligation to buy as part of the deal for the Spaniard, so the Rossoneri would like to receive €1m for his loan while the Russian club want to avoid paying anything at all. At the moment, therefore, the dialogues have been interrupted because a new offer has not arrived.
CSKA are the only possible destination at the moment, considering that the market is still open there, but any deal must be completed quickly.
