Milan & Borussia Dortmund To Meet For Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Milan are edging closer to Aubameyang.
After securing the Biglia and Bonucci deals in just a day, Milan are now ready to focus on adding a quality striker to their already reinforced squad. The Rossoneri players will depart for China on Friday, as the Milan officials will also be there.
Several reports including TuttoMercatoWeb suggest that Milan have scheduled a meeting with Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang next week in China. Whilst according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Italian giants will make a bid of around €60 million and offer the player a 5-year contract worth €8 million per season.
Milan had been rocked by Aubameyang’s wage demands, but they are confident they can talk down his agent. The Gabonese striker was set for a move to Tianjin Quanjian, but it seems highly unlikely now knowing that the Chinese Super League transfer window will officially close on 15 July.
Fiorentina striker Nikola Kalinic and Torino’s Andrea Belotti remain the alternative in the event that Milan fail to land Aubameyang, but the former Milan youth product is now undoubtedly the priority.
The Viola have granted Kalinic temporary leave from the pre-season training camp, but the player is believed to have headed back to Croatia so as to force a move to Milan. In the meantime, Sky Italia claims the Serie A giants have made a new offer for Belotti, but it is again deemed low by Torino.
