In a deal that was out of the blue and concluded quickly by most football standards Gustavo Gomez signs a five year contract with Milan.
In the last few days when the Chinese deal seemed to be collapsing and the transfer market blocked the name of Gustavo Gomez popped up and surprised many. Most Milan fans knew little to nothing about the Lanus central defender. To some at least he seemed like a cheaper alternative to the likes of Mateo Musacchio and Shkodran Mustafi and a sign that Milan were trying to find a lower cost defender to fill the spot left open by the departures of Mexes and Alex after last season.
The 23 year old Paraguayan has signed for an apparent €7 million fee.
