Rafa Mir could end up joining Milan today and be Olivier Giroud’s backup, as it seems impossible to complete the Patson Daka transfer in time.
It’s a chaotic transfer deadline day at Milan, who are looking for a new striker after the Mehdi Taremi talks collapsed and Lorenzo Colombo was sent to Monza on loan for the summer.
On Friday morning everyone was talking about Patson Daka to arrive on loan with option to buy from Leicester City, with an agreement reached with all parties, but Milan were forced to change targets again.
In fact, according to Sky Italia, Milan understood that they would be unable to complete the signing of Daka in time due to the bureaucratic times it takes to sign a non-EU player. And so, they moved to focusing on Sevilla’s bench striker Rafa Mir. Milannews.it confirms the news and suggests that talks are in progress to reach a total agreement as soon as possible.
The exact details of the negotiations are not yet completely known, but the 26-year-old Spanish striker has now become Milan’s top option, after yesterday being further down the list.
