Alen Halilović is apparently close to moving to Milan as his medical check-ups are scheduled for today.
Yesterday Milan received note from UEFA that they are banned from next year’s Europa League, but even though the Rossoneri are going to appeal the decision to CAS, the mercato seems to have started.
It came out of nowhere during the night, but according to Sky’s Gianluca Di Marzio and Sportitalia’s Alfredo Pedullà, 22-year-old Croatian Alen Halilović is in Italy and today he will have his medical with Milan.
Halilović is owned by Hamburg and has a contract until 2020. He is a left-footed playmaker, whose career should’ve probably been better, as he was signed by Barcelona in the age of 18 back in 2014 but failed to impress enough to make a claim for the first-team. He spent the last season and a half on loan at La Liga’s Las Palmas, who finished 19 last year and were relegated to the second division.
Should the medial go as expected, and an agreement will be finalized between Milan and Hamburg, the player, who can also play on the wings, will sign a three-year contract with the Diavolo.
