AC Milan fought off competition from Manchester City in order to secure the signing of Jens Petter Hauge from Bodo/Glimt, it has been revealed.
We revealed last month that Milan started a serious pursuit of the winger after the 3-2 win over Bodo/Glimt at San Siro in the Europa League, a game in which he scored and notched an assist, and the operation moved quickly.
Just a few days later, Milan confirmed the arrival of Hauge on a contract until 2025, while the fee is widely reported to be around the €4m mark.
City were considering a move for the 20-year-old, but they wanted to let him continue playing at Bodø/Glimt for another year or two. In the end though, the player only wanted Milan.
