After a long and on going transfer saga Alessio Romagnoli has completed his medical and joins from Roma for €25 million. It is thought that the fee paid to Roma may NOT include bonuses but only a future percentage if Milan were to sell Romagnoli in the future.
He spent last season on loan at Sampdoria with current Milan coach Mihajlovic, it seems the coach’s advice and trust of the young 20 year old defender convinced Galliani to push Roma’s Walter Sabatini to sell.
His Milan contract is for five years and is between €1.5 and €2 million a season net.
It is also thought that Milan will continue to try to offload Zaccardo and one other defender, possibly Paletta. Simone Verdi and Michael Agazzi are also on the way out, if a buyer can be found.
