Jesus Corona and Romain Faivre are the remaining two targets for the attacking midfielder job with the Frenchman favorite to join AC Milan.
There is less and less time until the end of the summer transfer window and AC Milan are looking for the last signing to complete the squad available to Stefano Pioli. Among the priorities of Maldini and Massara, in this sense, there is the famous purchase that will have to guarantee creativity and unpredictability to the Rossoneri’s attack.
From the long list of different names released in the summer, 4 days until the mercato closes, remain only two candidates that will play the final duel over who will be AC Milan’s new trequartista and replace Hakan Calhanoglu. In the remaining days one between Jesus Corona and Romain Faivre will join AC Milan as the last summer singing.
DISTANCE WITH PORTO – In addition to the direct confrontation in the upcoming Champions League, Milan are already playing an important match against Porto on the transfer market. The Rossoneri’s interest in Corona is concrete and the management is trying to understand the feasibility of the operation. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews.it), between Milan and Porto there is still distance in the rating both clubs have for Jesus Corona.
The Portuguese are asking for at least €14 million despite the player’s contract expiring in 2022, while the Rossoneri will not go beyond 10 million euros for a player they can sign for free in a few months. Other sources claim that Porto’s real asking price is close to €20 million. According to journalist Carlo Pellegatti, AC Milan have already understood that they will not be able to purchase Corona.
FAIVRE THE ALTERNATIVE – Romain Faivre is the alternative to Corona and, for now, the most likely name to join the Rossoneri. AC Milan have already agreed personal terms with the 23-year-old French talent. Brest are asking 15 million euros for Faivre. For a young player with great potential for improvement Elliott is willing to spend more than for Corona. In his last season in Ligue 1, the former Monaco talent scored 6 goals and provided 5 assists in 36 appearances. Romain Faivre is a suggestion of AC Milan head scout Geoffrey Moncada.
