AC Milan’s latest talks with the agents of Matija Popovic have not yielded the expected agreement and the deal now appears to be in jeopardy, a report claims.
As reported by Milan News, there is still no agreement on the commissions that are to be paid to his agents on completion of the deal, a common stumbling block in modern transfers.
The requests from the entourage of the 18-year-old striker seem to be very high compared to what Milan had expected, so the entire operation is now on standby whilst a solution is searched for.
Popovic actually arrived in Milan on Tuesday, something that the club had not actually planned for him.
He is a free agent after his contract with Partizan Belgrade expired, and he clearly wants to get his move to Milan finalised as soon as possible.
As things stand, the transfer is not expected to go through unless the agents lower their commission requests.
Popovic is a very highly-rated striker and is expected to go into Ignazio Abate’s Primavera squad to begin with, should the move happen.
Given his age and supposed potential, it would not be long before he is in the frame for first-team minutes.
