Junior Messias has joined AC Milan on a first loan deal before the season and although his stay seemed certain a few weeks ago, that is not the case now. In fact, the Rossoneri want an extra discount, according to a report.
The Brazilian winger, who arrived from Crotone before last season, enjoyed a decent first year with Milan finding the back of the net six times. His most memorable goal came in the Champions League away to Atletico Madrid (1-0 win).
According Calciomercato.com, Milan are currently considering Messias’ future and it looks like they want a further discount on the buyout. Initially, the clubs agreed on €5.5m but two weeks ago they settled on €4.5m.
The official announcement never came, however, and that’s because the Rossoneri are pushing hard to get an extra discount. In the meantime, they are very confident of signing Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea on a loan with obligation to buy, for around 25-30 million euros.
This signing would make Messias slightly redundant, hence the efforts to lower the price. Milan still want to keep the Brazilian but not for that money.
