Milan 'must triple' Yanga-Mbiwa bid

Montpellier have slammed reports of Milan’s €6m bid for Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa. “Triple that would not be enough.”

L’Equipe newspaper suggested an offer had come in for €5-6m and advanced negotiations were in progress for the centre-back.

“Yanga-Mbiwa will not leave,” blasted Montpellier President Louis Nicollin on France Football.

“This is clear as day. In order to have advanced negotiations with Milan, we would need to have an agreement. We don’t have an agreement, so there are no advanced negotiations!

“I know that they offered around €6m, but even triple that would not be enough.”

Yanga-Mbiwa has only one year left to run on his Montpellier contract.

“I am not even looking for a replacement, so he will definitely not be leaving. I don’t care if he’s nearing the end of his contract. It’s not important and I don’t care!”
