Sky: Milan drop Daka pursuit due to time issues and go for Sevilla striker

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have dropped their pursuit of Patson Daka due to their inability to get the deal done in time and are now closing in on another target, a report claims.

In the last hour we relayed a report from Sky claiming that Milan have reached an agreement with Leicester over the figures and formula of the operation with Daka over personal terms. Thus, a race against time to get the green light for a work permit began.

However, the latest twist from Sky is that the bureaucratic registration times will take too long to try and get Daka, so Milan have moved away from the Zambia international and on to another target.

The player in question is 26-year-old Sevilla striker Rafa Mir. The player has already given the green light to join the Rossoneri, now Milan will have to sort out the details with Sevilla and thus definitively close the operation.

    1. See, this is what I mean by ‘rush’. Obviously he (and the others before) is not in our initial plan, let alone being tracked for a long time. He’s here because there’s an opportunity. All in all, if it’s a loan deal first, then it’s more sensible.

  1. I saw his goal against Girona last weekend and I can tell you the goal was something to write home about…He literally did the job all by him self from the left wing cutting in to is right and shooting from a very tight angle…Y’all can look the goal up on YouTube.

  2. We need to keep origi and get a striker. Right now our cards are 1 x 37 year old striker. This is a farce we have left ourself in this situation. We’ve made some good signings but we’re not getting nearly enough back. A striker was fundamental at the beginning of this window. Christ! It was fundamental in January. For a team that’s qualified last 3 editions of champions league, won the league, reached the semis, full house every home game. Sold Tonali, reduced the debt to zero and increased sponsorship money and tv money moving forward. Do you think we should expect something more given all these things plus moving on some wages from the books. We’ve spent circa 116M on new players. Considering Tonali funded 70M of that and all the other points I raise, should we not have been able to bank roll a decent bid for a striker or even 2. Considering Daka is a low cost option he could have come in earlier and still left money available for something to happen. I didn’t like the Tarehmi deal, I’m not sold on his quality but I came full circle on it because of the needed depth it would have brought and then it crumbled because of the wages we offered. I think when we’re this short on depth, the 4.5M on paper in additional wages for him will look small against what it might cost us over the season. Is the idea to put Camada in the team? I saw his caption this morning..Coming Soon! I hope not it’s too early for the boy
