Junior Messias completed a dream move to AC Milan yesterday and now the hard work begins in convincing the club to keep him, a report claims.
Messias officially signed for the Rossoneri on deadline day yesterday, and Gianluca Di Marzio (via MilanNews) reports that the figures of the deal are as follows: €2.6m for the loan, an option to buy at €5.4m and an additional €1m in bonuses.
As La Gazzetta dello Sport (via NotizieMilan) confirms, Milan did indeed sign Messias on a paid loan with an option to buy included as part of the deal, and the paper adds that he will earn a salary of €1m net for the upcoming season.
Essentially, Messias will also have one year to convince the management to buy him on a permanent basis from Crotone. The 30-year-old Brazilian has already expressed his desire to keep working hard and stay at the ‘team of his heart’.
