More details are emerging about the deal that should see Sergino Dest join AC Milan on loan from FC Barcelona, according to a report.
Fabrizio Romano broke the news earlier this evening that Milan are in ‘advanced talks’ to sign Sergiño Dest from Barcelona with negotiations very much concrete over what will be a loan with an option to buy and not an obligation.
According to what is being reported by Barcelona reporter Gerard Romero (via AC Milan France), the option to buy figure will be €20m. Not only that, but Milan will cover the full salary of the USA international which is €3.8m net per season.
With the change of ownership having formally taken place today and questions over the future of the internal salary ceiling imposed by Elliott Management, it could well be a sign that RedBird Capital are willing to push the boat out a bit more.
