Milan – Barcelona : There is still no agreement for Todibo
The young Jean-Clair Todibo is one of the primary targets of AC Milan for the January transfer window. After the unexpected injury of Leo Duarte Milan has decided to buy new defender.
As we have already reported , the talks between the two clubs are taking place some time. Todibo is one of the most talented defenders in the world, however at this moment Barcelona can not give him enough first team soccer so he can develop.
AC Milan sees this as ideal opportunity, and hopes that after short period of adaptation Todibo will be regular alongside Alessio Romagnoli . As we understand this transfer aligns with the transfer vision the owners have, so everyone are on same page.
The rossoneri would like to sign Todibo on loan, with opportunity to buy him. However there is still not agreement between AC Milan and Barcelona for Todibo. As we understand both clubs have agreed on loan, however the details are not yet fully agreed. Milan wants to place 15 million euros buy clause, while Barcelona wants the clause to be of 25 million euros.
Additional request which Barcelona has is to add buy-back clause in the contract. This means that if Todibo becomes one of the best defenders, they can buy him back for a pre-disscussed price. At this point this is unacceptable for AC Milan.
