Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone is trying to convince striker Angel Correa to reject AC Milan and stay in Spain.
MILAN TRANSFER NEWS – AC Milan’s ambition to sign Angel Correa to reinforce the attack is not a secret. The Argentine talent is considered the ideal profile to make the difference in Marco Giampaolo’s 4-3-1-2 game system.
Despite continuous contacts between the parties, the two clubs have yet to reach a deal . The failed move of Andre Silva to Monaco deprived the Rossoneri of important resources, and the distance between Atletico Madrid’s claims of 55 million euros and AC Milan’s offer of 45 million bonuses included, hasn’t helped the talks.
According to reports from the Italian press, AC Milan have already agreed personal terms with the player but convincing Atletico Madrid to sell Angel Correa will be tougher than expected. Spanish newspaper AS reports that negotiations may break down and Correa could stay in Madrid.
According to AS, coach Diego Simeone is trying to convince Correa to reject Milan and stay at Atletico Madrid. The Argentine striker has had a meeting with Simeone and the coach has assured him that he will play a more central role this season. Cholo is playing every card to convince his compatriot to stay and it seems that the situation has changed a little. Goal.com on the other hand report that Atletico Madrid have offered Angel Correa in a swap deal with Valencia for striker Rodrigo.
It seems like there is a real risk that Correa to AC Milan fails. The Rossoneri are well aware of the difficulties and have started to look around for other options. Spain U-21 star Dani Olmo could be the alternative with intermediaries at Casa Mialn today to meet with the Rossoneri management and open talks.
