Milan to permanently sign Florenzi regardless of ownership change

Andy Mattioli

As reports of negotiations between Elliott and Investcorp for Milan’s ownership continue to intensify, the future of Alessandro Florenzi has come into question.

The Italian fullback – currently out with a meniscus injury – is on loan at Milan until June with an option to buy set at €4.5 million.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan are expected to trigger the option and sign Florenzi on a long-term contract regardless of the ownership change.

Directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have met with Florenzi’s agent and are satisfied of his role within Stefano Pioli’s roster.
