Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani has confirmed a deal with Antonio Cassano and Sampdoria, “but the problem is Real Madrid.”
As part of the transfer that took him from Spain to Genoa, Real are owed €5m from his next move away from Samp.
“The negotiations for Cassano are at an advanced stage, but are not completed yet,” Galliani told Sky Sport Italia.
“The problem is the money owed to Real Madrid. Who is going to pay it? Milan are not prepared to do so, neither are Sampdoria, so it's a real problem.
