A hitch has arisen in AC Milan’s attempts to sign Mehdi Taremi from Porto which centres on payment methods and bonuses, a report claims.
According to Sky Italia (via Milan News), the new offer from Milan which was expected to be decisive has proved not to be, and the deal is now in jeopardy.
There has been a change in attitude from Porto and a stalemate has begun. The stalling is due to the way in which Milan will pay the €15m, presumably the timeframe, and the bonuses that make up part of the transfer fee.
The report does state that the issues can be resolved in the next few hours given how advanced the negotiations are between the two clubs.
This is bad news for Milan, Taremi, and Monza. They are waiting for Milan to sign Taremi so that they can secure a deal for Lorenzo Colombo to join them.
Any delay also creates bureaucratic issues for Milan given Taremi is a non-EU player and there is more paperwork to complete before the transfer deadline on Friday at 20:00 CEST.
