AC Milan have reached an agreement with AZ Alkmaar for the transfer of Tijjani Reijnders, who is expected to arrive in Italy on Monday. The player’s will was decisive, pushing for the move throughout the process.
Milan tabled a new offer of €20m plus bonuses late last night and AZ Alkmaar decided to accept. Reijnders is expected to arrive in Italy on Monday, as reported be various sources, and should thus be available for the USA tour.
According to Gazzetta Dello Sport’s Luca Bianchin, Reijnders turned down a contract worth €3m per year at AZ Alkmaar as he only wanted the move to Milan. His salary with the Rossoneri will be €1.6-1.7m per year plus a sign-on bonus.
In short, the player made a big sacrifice in order for the move to materialise. For Milan, it’s a very important signing not just for the squad, but also for Giorgio Furlani and co who now have shown their strength.
