M’Baye Niang is close to leaving Milan and go to Russia as talks with Spartak are advanced, according to reports.
After Carlos Bacca left Milan to join Villarreal (loan with option to buy in a deal worth €18m) yesterday, it now seems that Niang will soon follow.
The Frenchman did not take part in training yesterday and is not part of the squad to face KF Shkëndija tonight (20:45 CET) as he is on his way out of the club and to Spartak Moscow of Massimo Carrera.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio and La Gazzetta dello Sport, Spartak Moscow are offering Milan €18m plus €2m bonuses for Niang while the 22-year-old is being offered a four-year deal worth €3m per season. The money seems to have convinced Niang to join Luiz Adriano at Spartak.
Talks are an advanced stage and the deal can be concluded today. Niang joined Milan from Caen in 2012 for around €2m, scoring 12 goals in 77 appearances. His time here will soon come to an end.
