Another Reinforcement For Milan!
The marathon negotiations ended, Milan got another big boost. Today in the afternoon, the final agreement was reached on the transfer of Andrea Conti from Atalanta. It will be the seventh boost of Rossoneri this summer …
Negotiations about Conti were perhaps the hardest of all the previous reinforcements. Milan and Atalanta have repeatedly interrupted and continued their talks, but decided the players’ willingness to move to Milan. Conti clearly told Atalanta leaders that he would not start training and that sale to Milan was the only solution.
It started with Milan offering about 15,000,000 euros, and Atalanta was seeking 28,000,000. It ended with an agreement that a club from Bergamo would receive 24,000,000 euros for compensation and young Mateo Pesin, who was insisted on by coach Gasperini.
Conti will appear tomorrow in Milan on physical tests, on Friday he will do medical examinations and sign a five-year contract worth 2,000,000 euros per season.
The young national of Italy is the latest in the series of Atalanta’s pearls that changed the clubs after the amazing last season. Earlier Inter wanted him, but he wanted at all costs to Milan. There will be a long-term solution in the right-back position, and alternatives will be his colleague from the team. This very probably means the departure of the experienced Abate … Atalanta brought Timothy Kastania from Genk as a replacement.
By bringing in Conti, Milan continued with a great series of moves in the transfer period. Before he was Mateo Mussachio, Franck Kessie, Ricardo Rodriguez, Andre Silva, Fabio Borini and Hakan Chalhanoglu. Calculating the obligatory purchases of Kessie and Borini’s loan, as well as bonuses in other transfers, Milan has so far invested 158,000,000 Euros in bringing reinforcements.
Another attacker, midfielder, and sweeper are expected by the end of the transfer period.
