GdS: Boban friendship could seal Correa deal; possible meeting in Madrid

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan leaders could fly to Madrid next week to try and close a deal for Angel Correa, according to Sunday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The saga surrounding Correa has become one of the most drawn-out in recent memory, with Milan having agreed personal terms with the player already as we revealed earlier in the month.

Recent reports from Calciomercato.com claimed that Paolo Maldini and Boban were preparing one final push to try and land Correa.

The outlet stated that in order to strike a deal with Atletico, they must close the gap between the current offer on the table (€40m plus bonuses) and the demands of the LaLiga club (€50-55m).

According to Sunday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (as transcribed by MilanNews.it), the Milan management could fly to the Spanish capital next week in order to try and finally tie up a deal for Correa.

The newspaper states that there is a friendship between Rossoneri director Boban and Miguel Angel Gil, something which was reportedly formed during the Croatian’s time working for FIFA.

La Gazzetta goes on to add that the Milan leaders have a plan of sorts, and they hope that eventually it will be enough to bring Correa to Milan.
