M’Baye Niang was supposed to go to Russia in a deal worth €20 million but changed his mind as he prefers to stay at Milan or join another Serie A side.
Milan have an agreement in place with Spartak Moscow over Niang: €18m + €2m bonuses and it seemed that the deal was heading towards a positive conclusion.
But last night it was reported by Milannews.it and Sky that Niang was having doubts over the move and it is now said that at least at the moment, his decision is to reject Spartak, who are offering him a contract worth €3m per season for four years.
M’Baye therefore returned to training with the squad today and now Massimiliano Mirabelli and Marco Fassone will have to find a solution. Sky and Premium Sport suggest that Niang’s agent, Mino Raiola, had a meeting with Torino yesterday and they are ready to offer €12 million for Niang.
It’s clear that Vincenzo Montella deems Niang as dispensable but with Giacomo Bonaventura’s injury (he will undergo more tests tomorrow), M’Baye could prove important in the short-term.
