Just as quickly as reports from Portugal emerged, AC Milan have moved to deny speculation Everton Soares is close to joining.
Milan had been linked with a move for the player with Leonardo was sporting director, as he was a known admirer of his compatriot.
The track seemed to go cold, but out of nowhere reports from Portuguese paper A Bola claimed that Everton – who has just starred for Brazil in the Copa America – wants a move to the Rossoneri.
Meanwhile, Brazilian journalist Farid Germano then added that an offer had been tabled Gremio, but agent Gilmar Veloz flew to Italy to present a counter-offer from them.
Now, MilanNews.it have provided an update by stating they have learned from Milan that they categorically deny these reports.
They add that the player ‘had been followed for Leonardo in the past’ but now no longer represents a market goal.
