Multiple sources claim Milan could secure Krzysztof Piatek from Genoa for €40m tonight, freeing Gonzalo Higuain for a Chelsea medical tomorrow.
Rossoneri director Leonardo met with Genoa director of sport Giorgio Perinetti this afternoon to discuss the proposal.
It’d be a loan deal with obligation to buy at the end of the season for €40m plus bonuses.
There was a big step forward this evening when Genoa President Enrico Preziosi arrived to join the summit, meaning contract signatures are imminent.
Sky Sport Italia, Sportitalia and more all point to this meaning Higuain will be free to leave Milan tomorrow morning and undergo a medical at Chelsea.
The Rossoneri will terminate his one-year loan with option to buy for €36m early and hand him back to Juventus, who in turn send Pipita to Chelsea with similar terms.
The difference is that Chelsea will also have the option to extend their loan for another 12 months.
It sparks the merry-go-round, with Alvaro Morata then sold to Atletico Madrid, who in turn send Nikola Kalinic to Monaco.
