Sportitalia: Milan meet with agent of Man Utd, Man City linked midfielder with €100m clause

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have made an enquiry regarding the possibility of signing midfielder Florentino Luis from Benfica, a report claims.

Portuguese agent Bruno Carvalho Santos arrived at Casa Milan on Wednesday afternoon for a market meeting with the Rossoneri hierarchy.

MilanNews.it then reported that Florentino Luis is a player that will be talked about during the meeting, given that Milan registered interest in him some months ago.

According to the latest from Sportitalia journalist Gianluigi Longari, Milan have enquired about signing Florentino, who has made 11 competitive appearances for the Benfica first team despite being 20 years of age.

Given Gedson Fernandes’ recent big-money move to Tottenham, it remains to be seen whether the Portuguese giants are open to letting another academy talent leave.

Luis has also made 18 appearances for Portugal U21s and is tipped to have a bright future with the national team.

There has also been reports of Premier League interest in the midfielder, with Manchester United and Manchester City both linked with a bid for Luis, who has a €100m release clause.
