Report: €7m agent commission holding up deal as Milan close in on Olmo agreement

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have almost completely tied up a deal for Dani Olmo with Dinamo Zagreb but one major obstacle remains, a report claims.

Croatian source Sportske Novosti have gone big on Olmo over the last 48 hours, claiming that Milan have concrete interested in the winger and have made a bid of €20m plus bonuses with a five-year contract offer on the table.

SportMediaset then claimed Boban is intensifying contacts with Dinamo Zagreb to try and win the race for the wide man, while Radio Rossonera claimed on Thursday that he would not be used in the friendly against Lokomotiv.

On Friday night, Dinamo boss Nenad Bjelica confirmed that Olmo will not be risked during their Saturday friendly as ‘a transfer is being discussed’.

According to the latest from Croatian source 24sata, almost everything is agreed between Milan and Dinamo for the deal to take place, but one thing has the potential to hold the deal up.

The report claims that Olmo’s entourage are demanding as much as €7million in commission to facilitate the move, a figure that the Rossoneri are not keen on paying.

However, Olmo’s agent Andy Bara arrived at Hotel Lone where Dinamo are camping on Friday evening, suggesting things are moving forward.
