MILAN WILL offer half of Bartosz Salamon in the deal as they intend to agree the Poli transfer with Sampdoria today.
The transfer market officially started Monday (it will end on September 2nd) and after saying goodbye to Mario Yepes, Massimo Ambrosini, Bojan Krkic and Mathieu Flamini (who is unlikely to sign a new deal), Milan resume the Poli interest.
Milan seemed to have put the Andrea Poli talks on hold as they had to decide whether they renew Flamini’s contract and with the Frenchman now a free agent, Milan want to conclude the transfer of the 23-year-old Italian midfielder.
On Sunday there was a meeting between Adriano Galliani and Poli’s agent, Giovanni Branchini, to discuss the player’s personal terms at Milan and according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, today there’ll be a meeting between Galliani and Samp’s representatives to discuss the player who Allegri really likes. Milan will reportedly try to include Bartosz Salamon in the deal.
Poli, whose contract expires next summer, is valuated at €6 million and Milan want to lower this price. It’s reported in the media that Milan will offer €3 million plus half of Salamon, who hasn’t been given a chance to play since his January 2013 move despite his very impressive time at Serie B’s Brescia. Poli would fit in well in the 4-3-1-2 Milan will play next season as he’s capable of playing the mezz’ala role (side midfielder) and would most likely be slotted alongside De Jong-Monty.
Meanwhile, Sky Italia‘s Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Renato Civelli will only wait for Milan until this evening and if the Rossoneri do not contact him, the 29-year-old French center back will sign a contract with the Ligue 1 outfit Lille.
