Di Marzio: “If AC Milan call, winger will say yes”

AC Milan failed to purchase Romain Faivre last summer but a transfer in January is highly possible.

One of AC Milan’s summer priorities was to sign a new right winger/attacking midfielder. Many names were linked to the Rossoneri but at the end the management had to settle for Junior Messias who was a back-up option rather than a top target.

In fact, Maldini and Massara’s top pick was Brest star Romain Faivre. The 23-year-old French winger possessed the necessary goal scoring and assisting skills that the Rossoneri required but finding an agreement with Brest proved difficult.

Talks lasted until the very last day of the summer transfer transfer window. Despite increasing their offer from 10 million to 12 million euros plus 3 million in add-ons. Brest decided to keep their player. The bid was pleasing but the player’s attitude of refusing to train infuriated Brest’s management and ultimately the transfer collapsed.

However, Faivre remains one of AC Milan’s objective for January. Transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio reports that what happened last summer was not a final “Goodbye” but rather a “See you soon!“. If AC Milan were to call again, Faivre would say yes according to Di Marzio.

Despite the initial friction with the management, Romain Faivre is back in the Brest squad and playing a key role. In 9 appearances so far, the 23-year-old winger has scored 2 goals and assisted 4. The price tag remains the same, 15 million euros.
