Milan close to Deulofeu

Milan are reportedly moving closer to loaning Gerard Deulofeu, but they won’t have an option to buy.

The Rossoneri have been pursuing the Everton winger for some time, and it’s believed the Spaniard wants to move to San Siro.

According to Sky Sport Italia, contacts are ongoing between the player’s representatives and the two clubs and a deal appears to be moving closer.

However, the Diavolo will only be able to take Deulofeu on a simple loan deal, without any option or obligation to buy.

That’s because Barcelona have a buyback clause on their academy product, something which rules out any right of redemption.
