AC Milan are not planning on making a bid for Gremio star Everton Soares at the moment, according to a journalist in Brazi.
The Rossoneri were heavily linked with a move for Everton over the summer and even during the recent January window, with a number of different outlets claiming that Milan were looking at him as a potential alternative to Atletico Madrid’s Angel Correa, but in the end it was Ante Rebic who arrived on loan.
Earlier this month an intermediary admitted that there were talks held regarding a move to Milan in the past, and on Monday La Stampa ran a report claiming that the Diavolo’s interest in the 24-year-old is far from over.
Esporte Band journalist Marcelo Salzano has offered an update on Twitter regarding the situation.
He claims to have spoken to Milan’s sporting director Frederic Massara about the reported interest in Everton, but the former Roma chief responded by saying he has ‘no plans to make an official offer for the time being’.
It was recently confirmed by a Gremio chief that Everton’s release clause is currently set at €80m amid interest from – ironically – Everton.
