Milan had been very close to signing Denis Suarez from Barcelona, it’s reported, but talks broke down over commissions and salary.
According to Sportitalia, the Rossoneri had been on the verge of completing a deal for the 25-year-old midfielder.
It would’ve been a paid loan with option to buy at the end of the season.
However, the situation was never quite finalised amid discussions over his salary and the commissions owed to agents.
Negotiations were kept very quiet while the media focused on the arrival of Krzysztof Piatek and Gonzalo Higuain's move to Chelsea.
Suarez remains a target for Arsenal, but those talks are dragging on too, as it’s rumoured Barcelona want the Gunners to guarantee a permanent transfer.
