Decisive meeting between Higuain and Leonardo
AC Milan progress in their pursuit of Gonzalo Higuain with technical director Leonardo to met him and his agent in a few hours.
The unprecedented mega deal between Juventus and AC Milan continues ahead despite rumors claiming that Chelsea is about to close for Mattia Caldara. The transfer of Leonardo Bonucci back to Juventus should bring Caldara and Higuain at San Siro.
Sky Sports offers updates on the negotiation between AC Milan and Higuain. The Rossoneri have proposed to Juve a loan deal with the right to buy at the end of the season. El Pipita, though happy to join the Red and Blacks, is not so happy about moving on loan. Between tonight or, at most, tomorrow morning an important a meeting is scheduled between Nicolas Higuain, brother and agent of Gonzalo, and Leonardo.
The Argentine striker is expected to be part of the meeting too. Leonardo will try to convince him to accept Milan with the promise of making Higuain the center of the new project and explaining that the formula of the operation would not consist in a sort of “fake” loan, with the Rossoneri intended to make his move permanent after one season. The loan formula it’s only to bypass UEFA’s Financial Fair Play scrutiny.
