An important transfer market meeting between the management took place today at Casa Milan on Monday, according to a report.
According to MilanNews, the meeting served as a mid-August update to establish what moves will be made in the coming days, and above all how to solve the Zlatan Ibrahimovic problem.
The Swede is asking for €7million net while Milan have offered €5m plus bonuses. The distance is not unbridgeable but there is still a need to try and find find a meeting point.
The management, with Maldini and Massara, will have to try to convince Ibra to accept, but the club believe they has made a more than reasonable offer for a player who will turn 39 later this year.
There is confidence that the deal can go through, both want to continue together so one of the two parties will have to back down.
The other transfer market moves, from Bakayoko to a new full-back and a central defender (plus perhaps another striker), all depend on Ibra’s signature.
That is because if the Swede renews a large part of the budget can go towards improving these roles, but if he declines then a big name centre-forward will be needed.
