Angel Correa is in advanced talks with Milan about a summer move away from Spain, according to Sky Italia's renowned journalist Gianluca Di Marzio. Atletico have set their asking price at €50 million.

Correa arrives, Cutrone leaves

Considering the exit of even four midfielders, Milan will be looking to sign new players to fill in the blanks, but also bolster the squad's depth. In addition to silently working on the midfield, Correa has surprisingly emerged as a target for the attack.

Di Marzio additionally reports that there was a meeting scheduled between Atletico’s director Andrea Berta and the Rossoneri's officials to try and close the negotiations for Correa, as the player has already given the green light. It is believed that the prominent Portuguese agent Jorge Mendes is also working with the two parties.

The 24-year-old forward has had an average last season in Spain where he featured more prominently on the right as an attacking midfielder or a winger.

For the ideal formation for the new season, Milan would see him as a trequartista or a second striker.

In the meantime, the Serie A side is looking to offload Andre Silva and Patrick Cutrone, in order to make space for a signing in the forward area.

Patrick Cutrone is on his way to Wolverhampton, even though the player was initially not convinced of the destination. They have managed to beat off the competition by two unnamed foreign clubs, by agreeing to a deal worth €18m + €4m in bonuses with Milan. Cutrone will sign a five-year contract with Wolverhampton, Sky Italia confirmed.

Cutrone bewildered at Malpensa

After ten minutes of training in the United States, Cutrone was taken out, with speculation rampant that the fee between Milan and Wolverhampton was agreed in England. On Saturday, he arrived back in Malpensa airport in Italy returning from Boston to complete his move to the Premier League. He posed for selfies with fans but refuses to answer questions from journalists.

The talented striker is the third-youngest player to score 10+ goals in a single Serie A campaign with Milan (20 years and 137 days in 2017/18 with 10 goals), after Gianni Rivera in 1961/62 and Alexandre Pato in 2008/09.

What next for Silva?

The failure to sell Andre Silva to Monaco may or may not have played a role in the sales, but it is not surprising that, because Milan is associated with some rather costly moves on the market.

In his second year in the professional team, Cutrone scored only nine objectives in 43 contests, with three of them coming in Series A. Later this season he had been the highest goal maker for Milan, reaching 18 objectives in 46 matches and 10 in Series A.

The future of Silva, who spent the previous season on loan at Sevilla, is still uncertain.
