Junior Messias (Lapresse)
Milan-Messias, the Rossoneri would have closed for the onerous loan with the right of redemption of 5-6 million euros
AC Milan after the farewell of Hakan Calhanoglu, who moved to Inter free of charge, is frantically looking for a playmaker for Stefano Pioli’s 4-2-3-1. Ibrahim Diaz has won the starting position but with the qualification in the Champions League the commitments multiply and a wider squad is needed. The Via Aldo Rossi club hoped to close the matter before the last day of the transfer market but after a series of no today the first goal for the Rossoneri became Junior Messias of Crotone.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, in the past few hours the managers of Milan and those of the Calabrian club have reached an agreement for the transfer to the Rossoneri of the 30-year-old Brazilian, whose history has moved all of Italy. There is talk of an onerous loan of about 3 million euros with the right of redemption of 5-6 million.
Faivre-Milan, another no from Brest. There was also an attempt for Miranchuk
The reason why Milan have turned strongly on Messias is because of the difficulty in arriving at Faivre del Brest. The player born in ’98 refused to participate in the away match against Strasbourg in order to become a Rossoneri but the French club did not give up his position and, indeed, in light of this behavior he decided not to discount the Devil. Brest rejected the offer of 12 million euros plus bonuses and given the close deadline of the market, Milan focused on other goals. The sports director Maldini asked Atalanta for information for Miranchuck but in the evening the acceleration on Messias arrived, whose passage to the Rossoneri could be finalized by the closing of the market.
