Marseille hijack Laxalt deal

Diego Laxalt is reportedly stalling Atalanta because Olympique Marseille have made a new offer to the Milan winger.

It had seemingly been a done deal, a five-year contract worth €1.5m per season, on loan with option to buy for €12m.

However, there were rumours this afternoon that the Uruguay international was hesitating and asking for a little more time before signing the contract.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, that reason was a new proposal from Marseille worth €2m net per season.

Milan are irritated, as they need to move on the 26-year-old to make room in their squad for new arrivals and raise funds.
