AC Milan have officially confirmed the signing of winger Jens Petter Hauge from Bodo/Glimt on a five-year contract.
As we were first to reveal on Friday morning, Milan have been serious in their pursuit of the winger since Thursday’s game against Bodo/Glimt at San Siro in the Europa League.
The operation moved very quickly, with several of the major outlets reporting on Monday night that it was a done deal, with the Rossoneri having supposedly beaten competition from Manchester United, RB Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg.
Now, Milan have confirmed the arrival of Hauge on a contract until 2025, while the fee is widely reported to be around the €5m mark.
Born in Bodø, Hauge played in the Bodo/Glimt Youth Sector and made his senior debut in 2016 as a 16-year-old. After 67 appearances and nine goals, he moved on loan to Aalesund in 2018, before returning to Bodø/Glimt and scoring 26 goals in two seasons.
