AC Milan transfer: Rossoneri to cash out for January’s target
AC Milan will look to reinforce the squad in January’s transfer market, and the Serie A side has a top target to cash out.
According to what Luca Cilli reported live on Sky, Milan remain ‘strongly interested’ in Guirassy, who has 17 goals in 14 Bundesliga games and is the second-top scorer in Europe’s ‘top five’ leagues, with only Harry Kane having netted more.
Milan is working on paying Guirassy’s release clause, which is believed to be around €17m in his current contract.
Milan will have fresh talks with the German club in the next few days, and they have made it known that they are willing to pay a higher sum than €17m.
However, they would pay more only if they could pay the total amount in installments, which is impossible with the release clause, which generally must be paid in one payment.
In the event of an agreement with Bundesliga club, the player will still have to be convinced, as he has sizeable financial demands and must also agree to leave Stuttgart during the middle of a season where he is thriving. Meanwhile, Stuttgart can also wait until the end of the season to sell him with higher value.
Developments are expected in the next few days, when Milan have contacted the Bundesliga side regarding the potential transfer fee.
