Jose Mauri is reportedly on the verge of making the move to Milan after Parma went bankrupt yesterday.
Yesterday was a very sad day for Italian football as Parma, one of the most important clubs in the history of Calcio, declared bankrupt and will start the next season from the amateur leagues.
The players of Parma are now basically free to join whatever clubs they want and according to Sky Italia and La Gazzetta dello Sport among others, the Rossoneri are close to signing Jose Mauri who made 31 appearances for the Ducali last season.
Fiorentina are also interested in Mauri and there were reports yesterday that the Viola have taken over Milan in the race but now it’s stated that the 19-year-old is likely to join Milan on a 4-year deal. Mauri is a central midfielder but Nigel De Jong is still expected to sign a renewal soon while the Rossoneri keep trying to get one of Axel Witsel and Giannelli Imbula and also still want Bertolacci.
SportItalia’s Alfredo Pedulla claims that Milan are ready to make an offer to Roma for Bertolacci (the talk is €15m plus bonuses) but it remains to be seen if the Giallorossi will agree to let go of him.
