Jackson Martinez is the first major buy of the summer as it has been confirmed that he has said yes to Milan despite having better financial offers.
Milan’s first major signing is now all but confirmed as the Milan Channel and Porto’s President have both announced on Friday evening: Jackson Martinez has chosen to join the Rossoneri.
Adriano Galliani’s trip to Portugal can be considered a success as the Colombian striker will join the ranks of new coach Sinisa Mihajlovic. Milan will pay €35 million, which is Martinez’s buy-out clause, and unless the two clubs have agreed on different terms, the amount will have to be transferred within 60 days.
If the earlier reports are true then Martinez will sign a four year contract worth €3.5m a year. He reportedly had much more lucrative offers from the EPL but he has decided to join Milan.
“Before going on vacation, Jackson announced he wanted to leave,” Porto President Pinao Da Costa told Porto Canal. I think it was the right time to let him leave and I decided that he can freely choose his next destination. The €35m clause is not up for debate and must be paid.
“I learned just now that Jackson has chosen Milan. This is what he wants, the destination is irrelevant as far as I am concerned. I want him to be happy.” Martinez is currently with Colombia for the Copa.
Actually I’d love to see Martinez +El Sha in the front. I prefer 4-4-2 with conservative duet upfront. One powerfull striker paired with one pacey and tricky wide-forward who able to drag defenders and create space.
how about sign rabiot??
This is exactly why I was being a pessimist
hope to see him in the team next season…….he is the change Milan has been lacking
he is the change Milan was lacking before…….#ForzaMilan
This is not a bad team! 🙂
