Milan are linked with a move for Ángel Correa and Jorge Mendes seems to be helping them fund the move by selling André Silva to Monaco and Patrick Cutrone to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Milan have been on the mercato for a central defender, a midfielder and a second striker, as coach Marco Giampaolo is looking to complete his squad with players functional for his 4-3-1-2.
Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia dropped the new name that Milan are considering, and that is of Ángel Correa of Atlético Madrid.
Di Marzio claims that talks are ongoing between the clubs for the 24-year-old who last season played 34 La Liga games, scoring 3 goals and assisting 2 more. Super-agent Jorge Mendes is believed to be the one orchestrating the possible move but the big obstacle is Correa’s €55m price tag.
The Sky journalist adds that the signing of Correa could be funded by selling André Silva and Patrick Cutrone. Di Marzio suggests that Mendes is working with Milan to help find new destinations for the two strikers, with Monaco interested in Silva and Wolverhampton Wanderers interested in Cutrone, who only returned to training at Milanello yesterday after finishing his summer vacation.
It remains to be seen if there’s any truth to the news, which is being echoed by Gazzetta dello Sport this morning. It seems to be against the direction of Milan to spend so much on someone like Ángel.
