Sky: M’Baye Niang on verge of move to Spartak Moscow

By Oliver Fisher -

M’Baye Niang is on the verge of finally completing his AC Milan exit, according to reports on Wednesday night.

According to Sky Sport, Niang’s departure negotiations are under way with Russian champions Spartak Moscow. 

Spartak have offered €18million plus bonuses to the Rossoneri resulting in a total of around €20million. 

Crucially, they are willing to offer Niang €3million per season for four years, a bid that made the Frenchman ultimately accept a San Siro departure.

Niang has been the subject of reported interest from Premier League side Everton already this summer, with rumours suggesting a deal was close to being completed but the player would refuse to accept the terms that the Toffees were offering.

It then emerged from various sources that Milan boss Vincenzo Montella was considering giving the former Genoa man a second chance to prove himself at the club following an impressive preseason campaign.

He fell out of favour last season and was loaned to Genoa, but now it seems the saga is over and Niang will leave for good.
