Ze Eduardo’s proposed move from Genoa to Milan seems to be off after an agreement couldn’t be reached.
The Rossoneri had seemingly done a deal for the Brazilian on the day that they lost Alexandre Pato to another injury.
However, according to Sky Sport Italia, the transfer has collapsed given the uncertainty of boss Massimiliano Allegri.
Milan were ready to take the player on loan for the season, but Allegri asked to have him on trial for the next week in order to better assess his ability.
Allegri and the player are understood to have spoken, but Ze Eduardo rejected the request of a trial period.
