Milan’s hierarchy reportedly made a flying visit to London, as they look to secure their ‘Mr X’ signing.
The Rossoneri have made a host of big money signings this summer, but are still looking for a striker to bolster Vincenzo Montella’s squad.
It was generally assumed that would be one of Nikola Kalinic, Andrea Belotti or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but CEO Marco Fassone said last week “there could be another figure, a Mr X”.
According to calciomercato.com, Fassone flew to London last night with sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli, with the pair returning to Italy this morning.
It’s not clear who they were in England to negotiate for, though the Diavolo have been linked with Chelsea’s Diego Costa.
Reports suggest a deal is in place for Kalinic, but the Fiorentina striker is on standby as Milan explore other options.
