Malaga in advanced negotiations to sign AC Milan starlet Hachim Mastour
Malaga are reportedly in advanced negotiations to sign AC Milan’s 17-year-old midfielder Hachim Mastour.
According to El Desmarque, Malaga have been tracking the former Real Madrid target to bolster their squad before the close of the summer transfer window on Tuesday afternoon and the deal is set to be finalised on Monday pending a successful medical.
Sergi Darder, despite every public comment from Malaga stating that the Mallorcan will not leave the club this summer, all signs indicate that the midfielder will ultimately join Olympique Lyon before the close of the summer transfer window on Tuesday.
In that light, Malaga have been rigorously working in securing the loan for the Moroccan-born star, who carried an Italian passport.
Malaga want to sign the player to a loan with an option to purchase at the end of the season for a fee of around €5 million.
Following the agreement, Malaga must then come to personal terms with the player before they lose out on Mastour and Darder by Tuesday evening.
