Milan are meeting Genoa and Krzysztof Piatek’s agent, which would send Gonzalo Higuain to Chelsea and Alvaro Morata to Atletico Madrid.
Multiple sources confirm Rossoneri director Leonardo, Genoa director of sport Giorgio Perinetti and Piatek’s agent met this evening to negotiate a fee for the hitman.
President Enrico Preziosi is also believed to be on his way to join the meeting, which would confirm a deal is imminent.
The offer on the table is to take the Poland international on loan until the end of the season with obligation to buy for a total €40m plus performance-related bonuses.
Piatek would earn €2m per year on a contract to June 2023.
Once Milan have secured Piatek, they can release Higuain six months early from his one-season loan with option to buy and return him to Juventus.
The Bianconeri will then immediately hand Higuain over to Chelsea on loan with an option to buy for €36m, although there is also an option to extend the loan for another year too.
In turn, Chelsea can sell misfit Morata to Atletico Madrid, as a deal has already been done.
With that in mind, ex-Milan striker Nikola Kalinic can leave Atleti and join Monaco.
Before all those moves can happen, Milan must secure their Higuain replacement and that means Piatek is decisive.
