Laxalt salary stalls Atalanta move

Milan full-back Diego Laxalt’s negotiations for a move to Atalanta risk breaking down definitively, letting Marseille and Fenerbahce back in.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere della Sera, the Uruguay international is available on loan with option to buy for €12m, but the move is stalled by personal terms.

He is currently earning €1.8m per season at Milan, whereas Atalanta are reported to only offer €800,000.

There is still room for a deal if the Rossoneri give Laxalt money as a bonus for leaving early.

Laxalt only joined from Genoa last year for €14m, but made little impact in 29 competitive appearances.

If he is unable to agree personal terms with Atalanta, then Olympique Marseille and Fenerbahce are ready to pounce.
