AC Milan are getting closer to announcing the signing of Daichi Kamada with La Gazzetta dello Sport describing the operation as ‘done’.
This morning’s edition of the paper (as seen below) has a segment on Milan which is titled: “The New Devils. Champions League budget, to be reinvested immediately. Kamada on a free: done.”
Kamada’s arrival will not affect the budget as he will arrive on a free transfer when his contract with Eintracht Frankfurt expires. It is a bargain coup for Milan, given that he has scored 40 goals in 178 games for the German side.
In the next few days he will arrive to undergo medical examinations, which will be followed by the signing of a five-year contract with the Rossoneri.
The management believe that the Japan international could instantly be put into the starting line-up while waiting to see how the futures of Brahim Diaz, Charles De Ketelaere and Yacine Adli work out.
Milan intend to try and sign Brahim on a permanent deal and would like to protect the investment they made on De Ketelaere, so the Spaniard could be moved out to the right to ‘divert traffic’. Otherwise, the trio would remain in line for a starting spot.
