Club Brugge are expected to use the money they got from selling Charles De Ketrlaere to Milan in their pursuit of Raphael Onyedika. The midfielder has also been heavily linked with the Rossoneri lately.
Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara had seemingly made Onyedika, the Midtjylland midfielder, their primary target for a few days. However, the Danish club stood firm on their demands and are now expected to get them satisfied.
According to Gazzetta Dello Sport’s Luca Bianchin, Club Brugge have put €9m on the table and Onyedika is now very close to joining the club. Bar any last-minute surprises, such as a new offer from Milan (very unlikely), the deal will materialise.
Of course, you can’t help but think that Milan’s €35m signing of De Ketelaere helped the Belgian side raise the funds for Onyedika. In any case, it seems the Rossoneri will have to look elsewhere for a midfield as the search continues.
