Watch: Crotone president confirms Messias will join Milan – the formula and figures

By Isak Möller -

Late last night, AC Milan reached an agreement with Crotone over the services of Junior Messias, who emerged as a target a few weeks ago. The matter has now been confirmed, with only an announcement missing. 

Speaking to various reporters last night, as captured by MilanNews (see video below), Crotone president Gianni Vrenna confirmed that Messias will join Milan. He also confirmed that the formula will be a loan with an option.

Negotiation closed?

“Yes. Operation on loan with an option to buy. The boy is very happy, you will see what he can do at Milan.”

What more did Milan do to get to the player?

“Milan strongly wanted him because they believe in the boy and we believe in him too. To carry out such an operation we believe in the qualities and skills of the boy. Let’s hope the field talks.”

You too gave him an important opportunity…

“Let’s say it was thanks to my son Raffaele who strongly wanted him at Crotone. Now he is going to an important city, among other things I’m a Milan fan so double happiness and satisfaction,” he concluded.

Gianluca Di Marzio (via MilanNews) stated that the figures of the deal are as follows: €2.6m for the loan, option to buy at €5.4m and an additional €1m in bonuses.

  1. Now that this deal is confirmed ,I hope that messias can score 15 goals this season considering he scored 9 for crotone.
    Also since it is loan with option wr can still get berardi next year.
    Is james rodriguez coming for AM??

  2. Let’s just give him time ffs. Stop hating on him man. He had as many goals as De Paul. Better stats than Merdanoghlu despite playing for a way worse team. The dude is a fighter.
    Let’s see what he can do.

    on the bright side he is an upgrade to Casti and Saalemekers.

    1. No flash but prudent. Hopefully this will balance the team with more attacking threat on the right. Also seems like he could back up Diaz AMC

  3. Good signing, he has 2-3 good seasons in his legs and is a low cost option. Who cares if he is 30 if he can play 2 seasons on a good level for that money.
