New axis opens up as Brescia president publicly declares interest in Milan midfielder

By Oliver Fisher -

Brescia president Massimo Cellino has declared a public interest in signing AC Milan midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura during an interview.

Bonaventura joined Milan back in 2014 but it looks as though his stay at San Siro is set to end after six years, with his deal expiring once the current campaign is over and no sign of an imminent renewal.

A tactically flexible midfielder who offers experience and quality, he has been linked with a number of the Rossoneri’s Serie A rivals including Atalanta, Lazio, Fiorentina, Roma and Torino.

Another option appears to have opened up though. Cellino spoke to Tuttosport (via Calciomercato.com) about the upcoming window, and was asked about a player he would like to sign that he can afford.

He responded: “Bonaventura, who is about to expire with Milan.”

Cellino also added fuel to the fire regarding another potential axis between the two clubs, specifically the one relating to Sandro Tonali who has been strongly linked to Milan in the last few days.

When asked about Tonali, he revealed an interesting ‘pact’ that he has with the player, and you can read those comments here.
