MN: Milan working on alternatives with Correa deal almost dead

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are considering a move late in the window to try and sign an alternative to Angel Correa, a report claims.

Despite reaching an agreement on personal terms last month, as we reported, Correa appears to be no closer to joining Milan.

The two clubs have been in talks for weeks now, according to various outlets, but are at present yet to have found an agreement

Goal Espana‘s Ruben Uria reported on Wednesday that Milan’s offer for the 24-year-old up until this point is in fact only €25million.

Meanwhile, Gianluca Di Marzio (via @GuillaumeMP on Twitter) has claimed that the Rossoneri submitted a complex two-year loan offer worth €10million (€5m per season) with option to buy, which was promptly rejected.

As per MilanNews.it‘s Anto Vitiello, negotiations have slowed down between the two clubs over Correa.

The original offer on the table from Milan was €40million plus bonuses, he claims, but was closely linked to the sale of Andre Silva whose move to Monaco collapsed.

Vitiello adds that the Rossoneri have moved no closer to finding an agreement this month and that Correa could stay at Atleti as a result, despite an agreement between the play and Milan over a five-year deal.

In more encouraging news, the report adds that Paolo Maldini and the rest of the club’s hierarchy are ‘looking for alternative solutions’ to Correa. 

They would like to close the market with ‘one last attacking reinforcement’ for Marco Giampaolo’s disposal, the report concludes.
