Aquilani buy-out 'a formality'

Milan buying up Alberto Aquilani’s contract from Liverpool is “a pure formality,” said his agent.

The midfielder arrived on loan in the summer with an option to buy and has impressed, even if he is not necessarily a starter in every game.

“We can without doubt consider Milan activating the buy-out clause to be a pure formality, especially as he’ll soon reach the written parameters set by Milan and Liverpool.

“Alberto is doing well and I think this is clear for all to see,” Franco Zavaglia told Itasportpress.

It was written into the loan deal that the Rossoneri would automatically activate the buy-out clause once Aquilani reached a certain number of official appearances this season.
