Filippo Terracciano completed his move from Hellas Verona to AC Milan at the start of the week, and he then made his debut in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday. In a recent interview, the player’s agent has revealed how the move came about.
The rumours first emerged on January 2nd and the negotiations proceeded quickly from there. Milan managed to reach an agreement with Hellas Verona at €4.5m, an additional €1m in bonuses and a 10% resale clause. A good deal for a promising player, most would say.
Terracciano made his debut for the club mid-week, coming off the bench against Atalanta. In an interview with TuttoMercatoWeb, the 20-year-old’s agent Andrea D’Amico revealed how the operation came about, confirming that it all happened very quickly.
When did the negotiation start?
“An operation born more or less towards the end of the year. Then we completed it quickly. The boy chose Milan because obviously, the Rossoneri call is a dream.”
Ready to make his contribution right away…
“He has already demonstrated this by entering a difficult match like the one against Atalanta. He came on and was ready.”
Young and Italian: the perfect portrait of an operation that looks to the future…
“Filippo has physique, technique and mentality. I remember when I brought Gattuso: it seemed strange to see him play for Milan and then you saw what a champion he became. And Filippo has everything to become a champion.”
Milan will take on Roma tomorrow evening and Terracciano could make his first start for the club, as per a report. Theo Hernandez would remain at centre-back if so, with the Italian starting on the left-hand side.
