Milan: Martinez and Kondogbia

Not only are Milan set to announce Jackson Martinez, but also offered €30m for Monaco’s Geoffrey Kondogbia.

Porto striker Martinez’s agent confirmed he is “optimistic” about a move going through and told calciomercato.com that a deal could be announced as early as Friday.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the spending spree doesn’t end there, as Milan have also stepped up their attempts to sign 22-year-old Monaco midfielder Kondogbia.

Already a known transfer target for their city rivals Inter, it’s reported the Rossoneri have put €30m on the table.

There were talks with both the club and the player’s entourage today, allowing Milan to push past Inter in the race for his signature.

CEO Adriano Galliani suddenly has a huge transfer budget thanks to Thai investor Bee Taechaubol agreeing to buy 48 per cent of the club for approximately €500m.
