AC Milan have raised their offer for midfielder Yunus Musah and they are now awaiting a response from Valencia, according to a report.
This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (seen below) reports that Musah remains the first choice target to complete the midfield and an offer in the region of €18m plus bonuses has been made.
Now it must be evaluated by Peter Lim, who takes all the important decisions at Valencia. The player has decided that he wants to join Milan which could weigh on things as it has with other summer additions so far.
The USA international – who has an Italian passport – is even training alone at the moment which is a clear indication of the breaking point his relationship with Valencia has come to, even if there is talk of a knee issue.
The next step is a meeting in Valencia shortly between the club and his agent to see if the LaLiga club would be willing to lower their demands from €25m. Any sale would be a pure capital gain, which is a factor given Valencia’s financial issues.
