MN: Milan hoping to meet halfway with Roma and sign defender – player ‘cannot wait’ for move

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are in advanced talks over a deal for Alessandro Florenzi but a meeting point must still be found, according to a report.

According to the latest from MilanNews, the negotiation is already in an advanced state but the two clubs are yet to agree on a formula for the transfer of Florenzi to take place. Milan would like it to be a loan with option to buy, while Roma are aiming for an outright sale or one on loan with obligation to buy.

The two clubs could meet halfway though and close with a loan with option that becomes an obligation under very simple conditions, and this is helped by the fact that the player is pushing for a move to Milan and ‘cannot wait’ to start a new challenge with the Rossoneri.

Florenzi would bring experience and mentality, and in the meantime he is training separately from the rest of the Giallorossi squad because he is considered to be out of their plans. For Milan he would arrive as a deputy to Calabria and if necessary could play on the right wing.
