GdS: Atletico have not accepted latest Correa bid; Milan remain patient

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s latest bid for Angel Correa has not been accepted yet despite reports on Thursday suggesting otherwise, it is claimed.

Recent speculation has suggested that Paolo Maldini and Boban were preparing one final push for the Argentine.

Their mission is to try and close the gap between Milan’s offer (€40m plus bonuses) and Atleti’s demands (€50-55m).

A report from on Thursday claimed that Los Rojiblancos have accepted Milan’s offer of €42million plus 30% future resale percentage.

However, Friday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport suggests otherwise, as they state that the aforementioned offer has not been accepted by the LaLiga side.

Atleti have even apparently talked about the idea of not selling him at all, but according to the reports ‘the wall between the two clubs could crumble’. 

As has been reported so many times, the situation is dependent on the futures of Valencia’s Rodrigo – who should be Correa’s replacement – and André Silva.

Milan, for their part, are playing a patient game and trusting that Correa’s desire to wear the Rossoneri shirt will help force things. 

The player is not central to Diego Simeone’s plans meanwhile, and as such Milan have set their stall out: they will not raise their offer to Atletico’s demands, and André Silva will be sold only outright (not a dry loan).
