Maxi Lopez is still not a Milan player after he held further talks with Rossoneri officials this afternoon.
The Catania striker, who has been in the city since Monday, spent around 30 minutes at the club’s Via Turati HQ today along with his agent.
“We are closer than before, but we still have to wait,” the Argentine centre-forward was quoted as saying as he left the meeting.
The striker’s agent, Andrea D’Amico, was also present but he too admitted that more patience was needed.
“No matter how this ends up, it has been important for everyone,” representative D’Amico noted as he left the building.
“Now we just have to wait, but we have faith in Milan and we will continue to wait for a little while longer.
“There are strategies like this in the transfer market. We know that this all depends on how another Milan bid ends up.”
Milan have put Lopez on hold as they continue in their pursuit of Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.
