It seems AC Milan will have a fight on their hands to keep hold of Primavera midfielder Victor Eletu after he rejected a deal, a report claims.
Eletu is one of the most interesting players in Milan’s Primavera side as we analysed in a feature over the World Cup break. He is mostly a deeper-lying midfielder, and he had a great December in which he netted a goal in a senior friendly and then extended his contract until 2025.
As an interested aside, that deal was negotiated and signed off by Ted Dimvula, the lawyer that was in talks with Milan over Rafael Leao’s extension which recently got over the line too.
According to what is being reported by TMW, Eletu’s intention is to take a step forward in his career after a great season with the Primavera and after his excellent performances at the U20 World Cup in Argentina for Nigeria.
For this reason, Eletu has for now refused the five-year renewal that Milan offered him which would kick in when he turns 18, thus making it his first professional deal.
As mentioned above, he is however contracted to the Rossoneri for another two years and if he does see his future elsewhere there will need to be a meeting with the leadership.
