EXCLUSIVE: Porto chiefs to meet AC Milan for Luiz Adriano

03 August at 21:48
Carlos Bacca was supposed to leave AC Milan this summer allowing the rossoneri to free up enough cash to close at least two-three negotiations and sign player useful for the idea of football of new boss Vincenzo Montella.

Trouble is, Bacca has declined the offer of West Ham and AC Milan are now moneyless, unable to spend one single penny for new recruits.

However, calciomercato.com has exclusively learned that Porto chiefs will fly to Milan next week in order to negotiate the transfer of Luiz Adriano.

The Brazilian joined the club last summer in a € 14 million deal, but failed to live to expectations with the rossoneri last term amid a collapse transfer to Jiangsu Suning last January.

Porto will make a loan offer with option to buy. AC Milan want to sell the player to permanent deal or with a compulsory buy-out clause which would force the Portuguese side to sign the former Shaktar Donetsk striker in 12 months time.

Luiz Adriano has an impact of € 11.2 million on the club’s balance sheet, which means AC Milan aim to sell him for € 12 million now or with a buy-out clause of € 10 million next year.
