Correa and Milan? No, we are not talking about Atletico Madrid’s Angel Correa, who was linked with the club for (almost) the entire summer. In June, the Rossoneri leadership tried in every way to land Lazio’s Joaquin Correa.
According to Calciomercato.com’s Fabrizio Romano, Milan were ready for months to land the former Sevilla man for around €40m. In June, contacts took place with the player’s agent, but they soon realised that the deal was impossible.
Lazio made it clear that they wanted no less than €60m, the report continues, not willing to negotiate on the price with the San Siro side. At the same time, they promised Correa a renewal until 2024, which is now taking shape.
Yesterday, an agreement was reached between all parties and the player will now earn €2m per year plus bonuses, Romano claims. With that said, Milan are still keeping an eye on the player, although their main focus is on the bench (Giampaolo) as of now.
