  1. This 30 mln deal really works for Milan. While getting 3 million straight, they get rid of his salary. When Atalanta actually bought him at the end of the season, or the beginning of the next, Milan has his onerous value reduced (on two years, instead of one) on the book and could register his transfer as a capital gain.
