Milan began talks with Fiorentina over the possibility of signing Nikola Milinkovic in January and their position has been clarified, said a report.
Calciomercato.it reports that Milinkovic’s future – like that of his compatriot Dusan Vlahovic – is destined to be away from Fiorentina. Milan and Juventus have been on the way for some time and at the moment the Rossoneri lead the lead, with recent contacts between the Diavolo and Fiorentina management.
However, Fiorentina are not willing to sell a key player in January while they are pushing a place in Europe and the player himself is not keen on jumping clubs during the current season, while at the end of the campaign he will choose the best possible option for his future.
There is some kind of gentlemen’s agreement between Milinkovic and Viola boss Rocco Commisso over the exit in June. The 24-year-old could be the perfect reinforcement for Milan’s goalkeeper who is trying to find a defender to cover Kjaer’s injury at the end of the season.
Juventus and English clubs like West Ham are also keen on this, so some kind of auction is being launched next June.
