AC Milan are still searching for an attacking midfielder in the last few days of the transfer market, and Jesus Corona seems like a concrete target.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), the Rossoneri are studying the feasibility of the operation and have been boosted by the fact Corona’s contract expires in June 2022, which certainly does not help Porto’s stance in negotiations.
However, it is not just directors Maldini and Massara involved in the pursuit of a new playmaker but also from a constant dialogue with Ivan Gazidis. The Milan CEO – who is in the USA for a series of treatments on his throat cancer – spoke with the duo to study the operation.
Porto want close to €13m in order to sell the 28-year-old and this request come from the fact that they owe 40% of any future resale to FC Twente, the former club of the Mexico international. Milan’s offer, at the moment, stands at €10m.
The real alternative to Corona is represented by Pablo Sarabia, as the Spaniard is on the fringes of the PSG project, but his valuation is holding Milan back from a serious pursuit.
