Ángel Correa is still a concrete target of Milan, but the club does not meet Atletico’s €50m valuation of the player.
Milan have so far secured the signings of Theo Hernández, Rade Krunić, Ismaël Bennacer, Léo Duarte and Rafael Leão.
However, the club does not intend to stop and is still thinking of adding Ángel Correa into the mix and have him play in the new attack Giampaolo is creating.
According to Milannews.it’s Pietro Mazzara, contacts continue between Milan and Atlético for Correa but there is still no agreement.
Atlético would like to get €50 million including bonuses for the 24-year-old Argentine, as they want to reinvest those in a new player, most likely James Rodriguez of Real Madrid. However, the Rossoneri at the moment have shown no willingness to go beyond €40m plus €5m of bonuses.
Correa’s agent is said to be in Milano so more updates could be expected in the next days. In any case, Milannews.it claims that Tottenham are also interested in the player but have not yet made an official offer. Milan have a rough agreement with the representatives of the forward, who continues to be involved in Atletico’s pre-season games and even scored in their 7-3 win over Real Madrid.
The Correa transfer has basically been on hold since André Silva’s move to Monaco failed. However, according to Sky and others, Silva’s move to Ligue 1 may still happen as they are new contacts.
