FRANCESCO ACERBI will reportedly be joining Milan in the summer, on a co-ownership deal probably.
The Italian center back has impressed Milan this season and in particular in the game against them on Tuesday, when he was one of the best players of ChievoVerona, stopping Milan from doubling their lead.
After the match, Acerbi admitted he is a huge Milan fan and would be proud to play for the Rossoneri and according to Milannews.it, the 24-year-old will, in most probabilities, wear the black & red shirt next year.
The player is co-owned between Chievo and Genoa and Adriano Galliani is expected to use his good relationship with Genoa President Enrico Preziosi and buy Chievo’s 50% shares of the former Reggina man. These rumours have not yet been confirmed or denied, but Chievo admitted they are ready to listen.
“Francesco proved to be a pleasant surprise, it took several months to adjust to the first league and the team, but he eventually did it. We would be happy to give our half to Milan,” Chievo director Sartori said.
The contracts of Mario Yepes and Alessandro Nesta expire this season and Milan look to rejuvenate.
