From Spain: Milan could go back in for €50m-rated forward in January

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ready to launch another assault for Atletico Madrid’s Angel Correa in January, according to reports in Spain.

Correa was the first choice to reinforce the attack for Milan during the summer, and in August we revealed that personal terms had been agreed with the Argentine.

However a fee was never agreed and he remained at Atletico, with the Rossoneri instead signing Ante Rebic on deadline day.

Calciomercatonews.com on Thursday suggested that the pursuit of Correa is not over and the potential sale of Suso could fund a move for the winger.

Now Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo have offered their take by stating that the situation ‘threatens to resurface’ in the winter market.

They point out that Suso is considered ‘expendable’ because cash needs to be made due to the big financial losses in 2018-19, while Franck Kessie, Hakan Calhanoglu, Alessio Romagnoli and even Gianluigi Donnarumma are also at risk.

However, the outlet adds that Milan’s owners Elliott Management could try again for Correa to prevent the quality of the squad from decreasing.

Correa has no goals or assists in five LaLiga games and apparently holds a value of €50m.
