AC Milan have got the go-ahead from Inter winger Matteo Politano to make the switch across the city in January, a report claims.
It has been a busy couple of days at Casa Milan for the Rossoneri leadership, with talks intensifying all the time regarding potential signings and exits.
According to Luca Marchetti of Sky Italia – as cited by MilanNews.it – Milan have made a ‘burst’ to try and land Politano ahead of the competition.
He claims that the agents of the Nerazzurri winger were at Casa Milan to discuss personal terms, and that contacts with Inter will follow, with Milan crucially having the green light from the player.
The 26-year-old is struggling for game time at present and is seemingly not in the plans of Antonio Conte having amassed less than 300 minutes of Serie A action, and he would obviously like to move to a club where his playing time would increase.
Marchetti adds that the eventual arrival of Politano is linked to an attacker leaving Milan, but with Borini’s departure there would be no particular problems in terms of squad side.
The operation must be an outright sale and not a loan of any kind. The Rossoneri have now overtaken the competition of Napoli and Fiorentina, who also followed the player.
