Junior Messias has attracted the interest of a few clubs on the market and most recently Besiktas, who now are pushing for the move. In fact, the Turkish side have already been sent a counter-offer.
Earlier today, Anto Vitiello reported that Besiktas have accelerated their pursuit of Messias, keen on securing his services after reaching an agreement to sign Ante Rebic. Some negotiating will have to be done, though.
According to Daniele Longo, Besiktas have made a first offer of €1m for the 32-year-old, whose contract will expire next year. Milan have countered with a figure of €3m as they want to avoid a capital loss and the Turkish side should soon respond.
Messias is currently out with an injury and will not play any more games during the pre-season preparations. It’s possible that he has played his final game for Milan (3-2 loss against Real Madrid), in the words.
This past season, the Brazilian scored six goals and assisted an additional two in all competitions for Milan.
