The penultimate day of the transfer window yesterday was a frantic one for AC Milan as their main target switched very quickly during the evening.
According to the latest from MilanNews, the Milan management tried to sign Romain Faivre from Brest and kept talks alive for as long as they could, even making two offers. However, in the end the deal did not go through as – at a certain point in the negotiation – the Ligue 1 club took him off the market.
Because of this, the Rossoneri were forced to change targets and turned to Junior Messias of Crotone. The two clubs were thinking about the figures of a potential deal for Faivre, but then the decision was made to remove the 23-year-old from the market due to an internal issue within the French club and so the deal fell through.
It must be recalled that Faivre was called up for the Brest squad to face Strasbourg on Sunday but did not show up to leave with the team on Saturday, which appears to have angered their leadership.
