AC Milan reach agreement with Parma over salve of out of favour defender
According to several reports, AC Milan have reached an agreement with Parma over the transfer of Italian right-back Andrea Conti for a loan deal until the end of the season with an obligation to buy.
According to Nicolo Schira, Milan have settled to loan out the right-back to Parma until the end of the season with the condition that Parma buy him at the end of the loan for €7 million.
Conti has struggled massively for game-time this season, with Stefano Pioli preferring Davide Calabria and on loan right-back Diogo Dalot ahead of him.
Additionally, Pietro Balzano Prota has reported that the deal for Conti can be closed very soon if Parma include the obligation to buy in the deal, noting that Fiorentina have fallen short in their interest in Conti, looking at other options.
Daniele Longo is stating that the deal has been agreed on, and whilst Conti would prefer to go to Fiorentina, the offer from Parma is the only one present and a decision should be finalised over the coming hours.
Conti has played just four games in all competitions for Milan this season, with his only start coming in the final UEFA Europa League group game against Sparta Praga, where he captained the side.
