Jens Petter Hauge has officially left AC Milan and the Rossoneri intend to use the money from the sale to reinforce the midfield department. Franck Kessie must be replaced and the management is at work.
Yesterday, it was announced by Eintracht Frankfurt that Hauge has joined the club on a permanent basis, following the initial loan during this past season. As Gazzetta Dello Sport point out (via MilanNews), that’s €12m into the bank account of Milan.
Money that they intend to spend during the transfer window this summer, in need of a midfielder as Franck Kessie will leave, among other things. Renato Sanches is one of the Rossoneri’s top targets, per the newspaper, and they intend to make use of his contractual situation.
Expiring in 2023, Milan are aiming for a price tag of €15-16m while Lille have communicated that they want €20m. The Rossoneri have offered €4.5m per year to Sanches and although an agreement hasn’t been reached, the feeling is that they can get there.
In any case, the money from the sale of Hauge could come in very handy for Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara this summer.
