AC Milan have been forced to open up to the idea of letting Divock Origi leave on a loan deal late in the window, according to a report.
As reported by Sky (via MilanNews), Milan are now happy to let the Belgian leave on a loan with option to buy deal having previously only been willing to accept a permanent deal.
There are two Italian clubs who are interested in signing the former Liverpool man, namely Udinese and Torino, with the Granata having the advantage at the moment.
However, the Milan management have made it clear that they do not want to make any contributions to Origi’s salary if he is to go out on loan, meaning whoever wants him must cover his full pay which is over €5m gross.
It is clear now that Origi is not a part of the plans of Stefano Pioli, having left him out of the tour of the USA and the squad for the first two league games of the season.
