Milan close to Kalinic deal

Following further meetings today, Milan are believed to be close to signing Nikola Kalinic on loan with obligation to buy.

The Fiorentina striker skipped training yesterday, and presented a medical certificate today excusing himself for the next five days.

This evening the Viola released their squad numbers for the coming season, with Kalinic losing the number 9 and tonight Sky Italia is reporting that a deal is moving closer.

It’s thought further discussions took place today, and there is growing confidence that a deal will be done.

There is a basic agreement for a year-long loan deal, with the obligation to buy next summer for €25m.

Kalinic is currently in Croatia but has already accepted a move to the Rossoneri, so he’s just waiting for the go-ahead to fly to Milan.
