AC Milan intend to sign Alessandro Florenzi from Roma on a permanent deal at the end of the season, according to a report.
MilanNews have now confirmed our report from yesterday by claiming that the management have been convinced buy Florenzi despite suffering two knee injuries during his season-long loan that needed minor operations to fix.
The most recent surgery was on the internal meniscus of the left knee in Rome on 6 April, with the rehabilitation process completed in the weeks following and his return coming in the 84th minute of the 3-1 win against Hellas Verona on Sunday during which he scored the third goal.
Milan have every intention of exercising Florenzi’s option to buy but would like to try and get a small discount on the €4.5m figure agreed with the Giallorossi last summer, even if it is unlikely that they will give one.
The management believe his presence on and off the field to be fundamental for a very young group. Florenzi not only has the technical qualities to compete for the starting position with Davide Calabria but he is a leader in the dressing room, which has not gone unnoticed.
