Alberto Aquilani’s future is still up in the air,  but it’s reported he will halve his wages to make the move from Liverpool to Milan permanent.
The midfielder joined on loan last August, but did not play enough games to activate the enforced buy-out clause.
His contract with Liverpool has another two years left to run with wages of €4m per season and has reportedly given the all-clear to halve that sum.
Milan are not prepared to stump up the €8m needed to buy Aquilani, so he could return to Anfield anyway.
Liverpool have many other things to consider, as manager Kenny Dalglish was sacked this afternoon and a replacement is yet to be found.
