Jens Petter Hauge to Milan is virtually a done deal as the clubs found an agreement on Monday evening.
The scouts of Milan have been following Hauge for quite some time but after Thursday’s match between the Rossoneri and Bodø/Glimt in the Europa League, in which Jens Petter impressed a great deal with a goal and an assists, the Diavolo management decided to try and sign him.
According to Milannews.it and others this evening, an agreement was reached on Monday between the Rossoneri management and Bodø/Glimt for the forward.
The agent of the 20-year-old, Emefie Aneke Atta, was in Milano today and after finding an understanding with the player himself, who was wanted by Manchester United and by RB Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg but chose Milan above the othe rsides, they also struck a deal with Bodø/Glimt.
Earlier this evening, before the news of the deal being done broke, Gianluca Di Marzio stated: “Milan are one step away from Hauge. The denial of Massara was diplomatic. The contacts continued today, they are very positive and an agreement could arrive tonight or tomorrow already. Milan will not leave him in Norway until December, they want him immediately, while the Norwegian club would like to keep him until the end of their league which ends mid-December.”
The exact figures have not yet been revealed but they are expected to be around €5m. Milan get a aplayer who scored 14 goals and assisted 9 more in 17 matches this season in the Eliteserien.
