Marca: Milan close to signing Levante record-breaker in €2m deal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are close to securing another coup for the future as Buba Sangaré should arrive from Levante before the window closes, a report claims.

According to what is being reported by Marca, Milan are close to closing the signing of Buba Sangaré, a 16-year-old right back who has already made his debut with the first team of Levante in the second tier in Spain.

The operation would cost around €2m and the young full-back would stay until the end of the season with the Valencian team to help his development.

Sangaré is a Spanish international in both the U15 and U17 age groups, the latter of which he is now a starter for. In fact, this week he participated in the two friendlies that pitted Spain against Italy.

The full-back made his debut in the Segunda Division last week against Mirandés with the Levante first team, which followed his appearance in the cup late last year.

In December he debuted in the Copa del Rey against Amorebieta, becoming the youngest footballer to wear the Granota team’s shirt at 16 years and four months.

The youth director of the Spanish national team, Tito Blanco, was the one who recruited him for Levante five years ago, in a match organised by the Valencian club to recruit young talents.

At that time he was in the junior category in one of Elche’s affiliates, and now he looks set to start a new adventure in Italy. Given his age, it is to be expected he would join the Primavera initally.
