AC Milan have cast aside the idea of signing winger Romain Faivre from Brest in January for the time being, according to a report.
According to a report from Sky, Junior Messias will in fact be regarded as a ‘new purchase’ and will become the first alternative to Alexis Saelemaekers, which of course further reduces the playing time possibilities for Samu Castillejo.
If the Spaniard were to leave the Rossoneri then directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara would look for a pure playmaker as they did over the summer and therefore not Faivre, over whom Milan have cut off contacts with Brest. The management are already on the hunt for a new talent.
Faivre has caused a stir by giving an interview to La Gazzetta dello Sport earlier in the week revealed that he is charmed by Paolo Maldini’s phone call and dropped a strong hint that he is gearing up for the move, even claiming he has spoken to former Monaco team-mate Fode Ballo-Toure about the club.
Brest On Air then reported that the 23-year-old may be in more hot water with his club just as he was over the summer as he spoke to the Italian newspaper without asking for permission from Brest first.
