AC Milan decided not to take up the chance to sign Allan Saint-Maximin from Newcastle United because they did not have assurances that a permanent deal would be possible, a report claims.
As has been reported by Calciomercato.com, the Rossoneri were offered the chance to sign the French winger earlier in the January transfer window on loan but they declined.
The club would rather sign a player on loan where there is an option to make the deal permanent at the end of the season, rather than just a dry loan that does not aid the club in the long run.
This could be seen as a controversial move considering no other winger appears set to join the club in the remaining days of the transfer window.
Saint-Maximin has seen his playing time reduced this season under Eddie Howe and he now wants to leave as Anthony Gordon has arrived from Everton.
No, No they didn’t…
They don’t have the money to buy him now or at the end of the season after a loan.
Lol exactly. NO MONEY!!!!
They don’t have money…. The poor Cardinale…
