Report: Details emerge of Milan’s €20m bid for Lokomotiv Moscow star; player wanted move

By Oliver Fisher -

Some more details have emerged from Russia about AC Milan’s late offer for Lokomotiv Moscow playmaker Aleksey Miranchuk.

Calciomercato.com reported back in December Milan had been offered the chance to sign Miranchuk, but the Rossoneri declined as they wish to focus on other profiles.

Juventus have also been heavily linked with a move, having faced him in the group stages of the Champions League, while Manchester United have been credited with interest.

According to the latest from Russian outlet Sport Express, Milan made an offer for the 24-year-old on Thursday in the hopes of sealing a deal before today’s 8pm deadline.

The report states that Maldini and Boban submitted a bid on the basis of a paid loan set at €3m plus an option to buy at €15-17m that would become an obligation if Miranchuk had played at least 50% of the matches.

However, the parties have decided to return to the issue in the summer, but that was a decision made mostly by Lokomotiv as the player wanted the move.

Miranchuk, who predominantly plays as an attacking midfielder, has racked up nine goals and four assists in 21 appearances for Lokomotiv so far this season.
