MN: AC Milan left waiting as Correa tries to force €45m move

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are continuing to negotiate with Atletico Madrid over Angel Correa but sales may be needed to finance a deal, it is claimed.

Correa appears to the primary target for Paolo Maldini and the rest of the leadership, and personal terms have already been agreed with the Argentine.

The problem current is that there is still a distance between the two clubs in terms of a transfer fee, with the Rossoneri believed to have offered €45m and the LaLiga club demanding €55m.

Diego Simeone did give Milan hope on Saturday when he hinted that Correa could leave the club this summer, and now have provided some news on the saga.

They claim that August will be ‘a month of waiting’ for Milan – and it is possible that a deal for Correa could drag on into the final few days of the mercato. 

Maldini and co. are currently hard at work trying to lower Atletico’s demands, and the player’s agent is also believed to be helping on that front.

Correa meanwhile is ‘forcing his hand’ to leave Madrid, and developments over the next week – particularly in terms of outgoings for the Rossoneri – could unlock the deal. 

Diego Laxalt apparently has his suitcases ready amid links with Torino, SPAL and Parma – while the latter are also keen on Andrea Conti.

Suso’s future continues to be unclear amid recent links with Fiorentina, while Andra Silva is also on the market.

Sales, it seems, are the only thing which can guarantee that Correa will be in a Milan shirt any time soon.
