AC Milan face a race against time to seal a deal for long-term target Angel Correa, according to a report.
The transfer saga surrounding Correa is one that has dragged on for weeks now, with the Argentine seemingly no closer to completing a move to the Rossoneri.
We exclusively reported back in July that personal terms have been agreed with the player and all that remains now is for the two clubs to reach an agreement over a fee.
On Tuesday, il Corriere della Sera stated that a deal for Correa is ‘very close’ as the two sides have a ‘draft agreement’ over a deal totalling €40million.
However, the reliable Gianluca Di Marzio then shut that talk down by stating that negotiations are still ongoing and that an agreement is not yet imminent.
Now, MilanNews.it‘s Anto Vitiello has provided an update on the situation by claiming that it has reached a ‘final countdown’.
The report states that Correa remains the most likely addition that Milan will make between now and September 2nd, although surprises cannot be excluded.
The Rossoneri remain in contact with Atletico Madrid via frequent phone calls, but have no managed to find an agreement over a fee, the report adds.
The offer on the table from Milan has in fact dropped to €35million because the club have not been able to raise funds via sales.
However, Vitiello adds that they are hoping that Atletico will accept the deal with a sell on percentage inserted.
On Tuesday evening, Gianluca Di Marzio told Sky Italia (cited by MilanNews.it) that Everton Soares could be an alternative target to Correa.
