AC Milan complete midfielder sale

AC Milan sports director Mirabelli is working to offload unnecessary players with Andrea Bertolacci about to join Genoa on a permanent basis after a one-year loan.

Andrea Bertolacci will continue his career at Genoa where he has been playing on loan since 2017. The 27 year old central midfielder will forever be remembered by Rossoneri fans as perhaps Adriano Galliani’s biggest flop having signed him in 2015 for 20 million euros.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reveals that the Ligurian club have closed everything with the player. Bertolacci will sign a five-year contract worth 1.1 million euros per year. Now it is necessary that president Enrico Preziosi finds an agreement with AC Milan. The parties have been negotiating for a while now and reaching a deal is just a formality. The Italian should leave the Rossoneri for a fee of around 5-6 million euros. Impossible for Mirabelli to ask more.

For Bertolacci, staying at Genoa represents the best solution. This year he was able to improve a bit after two negative seasons at AC Milan. The Rossoneri were eager to get rid of the player, who is not part of the technical-tactical project of Mr. Gennaro Gattuso. During his time at San Siro, Andrea Bertolacci played 50 games scoring only 2 goals.
