Lestienne to Milan via Qatar?

Milan transfer target Maxime Lestienne is on the verge of being bought by investors in Qatar who’d then loan him out.

The Club Brugge talent has been of interest to the Rossoneri for several days and he is seen as a cheaper alternative to Torino’s Alessio Cerci.

According to Sky Sport Italia, an investment firm in Qatar could sweep in to buy up his contract.

They would then loan the player to other clubs, hoping that with regular playing time at a high level his value will increase.

Milan would also be expected to pay for the privilege of counting on Lestienne for a season.
