After several weeks of rumours with no outcome, AC Milan remain interested in CSKA Moscow star Nikola Vlasic for the playmaker role. The demands of the Russian side are still holding the Rossoneri back, though.
As reported by Daniele Longo earlier today, there has been no progress in the negotiations as CSKA Moscow want to monetise Vlasic’s exit as much as possible. They are open to the loan formula, but only on one condition.
🚨 Non si registrano passi avanti per #Vlasic al #Milan: il Cska Mosca vuole monetizzare al massimo dall’eventuale partenza di quello che è stato votato come miglior giocatore del campionato russo (offerte da Premier e Bundesliga).
Apertura al prestito ma molto oneroso (segue)

They are asking for €10m to send the Croatian out on loan and an additional €20m for the buy-out clause, taking the total up to €30m. It’s a similar operation to the one that brought Sandro Tonali to Milan, with a very expensive paid loan.
The Rossoneri haven’t given up on the player just yet but it’s a very complicated operation, unless CSKA decide to change their stance. Vlasic, meanwhile, seems very keen on the move to Milan.
