Alessandro Plizzari is one step away from joining Serie B side Ternana on loan, as AC Milan have agreed to let the youngster go. However, before leaving, Plizzari will extend his contract with Milan until 2020.

Negotiations have been going on for a while but it looks like Conti to Milan is finally a done deal. The signing could become official this Tuesday and the Rossoneri are expected to pay around €24m plus Primavera player Pessina. 

Bonaventura and Suso are expected to return to Milanello on Monday following their recoveries from respective injuries. 

Donnarumma’s family will participate in the meeting between Raiola and Milan regarding Gigio’s renewal. The player himself will not be present.
