After qualifying for the Champions League, AC Milan immersed itself completely in the transfer market window. The Rossoneri management wants to conclude at least three market operations as soon as possible (the first should be Kamada, for whom the signing is very close). The second goes by the name of Loftus-Cheek, another physical midfielder, who would add strength to Pioli's midfield department. While the third could be a striker with the Rossoneri's interest in Openda, as we recently discussed in our market exclusive.
Loftus Cheek is convinced to move to Serie A...
The midfielder has already decided to leave London, as revealed by journalist Kinsella exclusively during our interview. (Read the exclusive interview with Kinsella) In fact, Loftus-Cheek has already said goodbye to his fans at the end of Chelsea's last Premier League game.
The player is very convinced of a move to Serie A, even after exchanging a few text messages with his former teammates now at AC Milan, Fikayo Tomori and Olivier Giroud.
Negotiations between AC Milan and Chelsea are ongoing with the Rossoneri club starting from a valuation of around 10 million euros, especially given the player's contract, which expires next season. The London club would like double that fee. But the conditions are in place to close the deal given that Loftus-Cheek, who earns around £3.5m net per year, does not fit into the plans of Chelsea and newly-appointed coach Pochettino.
