Mattia De Sciglio is ready to wave Milan goodbye and reunite with Max Allegri.
De Sciglio told CEO Marco Fassone and DS Massimiliano Mirabelli of his desire to leave, and during the negotiation with Juventus for Leonardo Bonucci, Milan had reached a gentleman’s agreement indicating that Mattia will be joining the Old Lady in this summer mercato.
And now the gentleman’s agreement is turning into a real deal as according to La Gazzetta dello Sport and Sky Italia, De Sciglio is ‘a step away’ from joining Juve.
Negotiations between the clubs are in advanced stage, with the Bianconeri reportedly agreeing to pay Milan €12m for De Sciglio, whose contract with the club expires next season. There is still uncertainly over whether bonuses will be included. Mattia is wanted by coach Massimiliano Allegri.
Meanwhile, Gianluca Lapadula has passed all of the needed medical check-ups and can now sign with Genoa. The sales of Lapadula, De Sciglio and that of Juraj Kucka, will put €30m into Milan’s coffers.
