Milan scrap Yanga-Mbiwa talks?

The battle between Milan and Montpellier drags on, as it’s reported Adriano Galliani has scrapped his trip for talks about Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.

It is well known that the Rossoneri are interested in the defender, whose contract with Montpellier expires next summer.

Despite that situation, the French club is refusing to even negotiate for less than €18m compared to the €6m offered so far.

According to Sky Sport Italia transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio, Milan Vice-President Galliani has abandoned a planned trip to Montpellier for talks.

Galliani was also irritated at President Louis Nicollin referring to him as ‘Kojak’ in an interview with French television.

It is possible Milan will instead wait until Yanga-Mbiwa is out of contract and take him on a free transfer.

Meanwhile, the Rossoneri have officially loaned 21-year-old Michelangelo Albertazzi to Hellas Verona with an option to buy into a co-ownership agreement.
