Chelsea have decided against using their buy-back clause on Sassuolo’s Jeremie Boga, a report claims, amid speculation the winger is a major target for Milan.
It was reported by Tuttosport earlier on Monday that Milan have a concrete interest in Boga but their pursuit has slowed down due to a couple of reasons, one of them being Chelsea’s option to bring the player back to west London for just €16m.
According to Fabrizio Romano’s latest for The Guardian though, the Blues will not use their buy-back – set at £13m – but are instead negotiating with Sassuolo to get a percentage of the fee from a future sale.
Napoli are one of the clubs mentioned as having interest in the Ivorian, who has 11 Serie A goals in 52 appearances for the Neroverdi.
The report does say that the wide man is likely to be sold this summer, and the sell on percentage could be equally bad news for Milan as it could drive the asking price up, with Sassuolo wanting to receive as much as possible.
