Jose Mauri will leave Milan in the next days, maybe for good.
After securing a deal with Chelsea over Mario Pasalic, who will arrive on a loan with Milan receiving a first-refusal option (no buy-out), the Rossoneri have struck a deal with Empoli for Jose Mauri.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport Italia, Giovanni Martusciello’s side is close to completing the deal to bring Mauri on loan with option to buy him.
Mauri didn’t want to spend another season on the bench and space could be even more limited than last year for the 20-year-old who arrived just last summer after Parma went bankrupt.
After making a deal similar to the Marco Van Ginkel move from two years ago, Milan now seem ready to do a Riccardo Saponara-esque move by loaning the young Mauri to Empoli with option.
