Gerard Deulofeu’s agent firstly proposed his client to Milan, but found a closed door at the Rossoneri headquarters.
The agent of Deulofeu, Gines Carvajal, was in Milano yesterday for a meeting with Napoli director of sport Cristiano Giuntoli.
The league leaders are believed to being close to an agreement to bring the 23-year-old back to Italy, but according to Sky Italia’s Gianluca Di Marzio, the first club in Deulofeu’s head was in fact Milan.
Di Marzio claims that the representative of the pacey winger offered the player to Mirabelli and Fassone, but the Rossoneri management showed no interest in opening talks, as they don’t consider him part of their plans. Deulofeu played the second half of last year at Milan on loan.
The focus of Milan in this transfer window is strictly to sell players and they are not expected to sign anyone, so that of course includes the Barcelona player, who seems likely to return to the peninsula.
