M’BAYE NIANG wants to join Milan but his club decided to reject Milan’s offer as they won’t loan him.
Reports last week suggested Caen have decided to accept Milan’s offer for young striker M’Baye Niang, but it appears that they have now rejected it as Everton have made them an offer which they find better.
The English press, which is not quite known for its reliability, claimed yesterday that Everton have had their £2 million bid for Niang accepted and they have won the race for the 17-year-old Ligue 2 forward.
Sky Italia confirmed yesterday that Caen have decided not to accept the Rossoneri’s bid which was a paid loan (some sources suggest a free loan) plus option to buy the player next summer as they simply don’t want to loan the player this summer and prefer to sell permanently, and Everton’s bid fits their demand.
The ball is in the hands of Milan. Sky reports that the player is keen to join Milan and has made up his mind after visiting Milanello. Milan must change their offer to get Niang who has been compared to Arsenal and France legend Thierry Henry. Adriano Galliani can either change the option to buy into an obligation although Caen’s preferred option would be if Milan offer all the money now instead of next summer.
Developments are expected in the last days. Everton have a real chance of ‘stealing’ him from the hands of Milan but the will of the player is reportedly with Milan, who have already let some youngsters escape.
