Reports: All agreed for Milan man to join Aston Villa; exit sanctioned only on one condition
By Oliver Fisher -

All is agreed for Pepe Reina to leave AC Milan and join Aston Villa, it is claimed, but only once the Rossoneri have sourced a replacement.

Mirko Calemme of Calciomercato.it claimed on Wednesday night that the Spaniard’s agent is currently negotiating with Milan regarding a potential move for his client to the English side.

The Spanish goalkeeper has spent 18 months at San Siro, and MilanNews.it claims the Diavolo will save almost €10million gross thanks to the departure of the 37-year-old.

Now, La Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira is claiming that it is practically a done deal as his agent has found an agreement with Aston Villa on a six-month deal with an extension of a year if Villa stay in the top flight. Milan, meanwhile, have sanctioned his exit.

According to the reliable Gianluca Di Marzio though (via MilanNews.it), the Rossoneri will only let the former Liverpool man go once they have sourced and signed a replacement – a clue that they are not willing to put faith in Antonio Donnarumma.
