Junior Messias will wear Red and Black next season as well, as Milan and Crotone have struck a deal.
Messias arrived late in the summer last year on loan with option to buy from Crotone and the Rossoneri, after winning the Scudetto this season also thanks to the contributions of the winger, have decided to buy out the 31-year-old.
The two sides had an agreement for €5.4m for Messias to switch sides, but Milan and Crotone in the last days sat around the table and managed to agree on a new price – €4.5m plus bonuses.
Messias will therefore play with the Scudetto on his chest next season and will try to convince Stefano Pioli that he deserves a starting place over the other wingers in the squad. Messias is the 3rd “closed” deal of the summer after Divock Origi for free and Alessandro Florenzi for €2.7m.
Messias’ first season at Milan saw him play in 36 games in all competitions, scoring 6 goals and providing 3 assists.
