Milan rejects Valencia’s request for Musah


Sources in Italy and Spain report that Milan rejected Valencia’s request to pay 20 million euros for Yunus Musah and are sticking to their offer of 18 million euros plus 2 million euros in bonuses.

The deal is essentially done for a total fee of 20 million and medicals are expected early next week to finalize the transfer.

This came after Valencia agreed to drop their asking price from €25m to €20m, admitting the American midfielder had his mind set on Milan, ready to reject offers from West Ham, Fulham and Monaco.

According to Sky Sport Italia and Relevo this evening, the Spaniards had asked Milan to make an extra effort and pay 20 million euros.

However, the Reds and Blacks stuck to their offer and have not exceeded their €18m fee, only adding €2m in performance-related bonuses.


The 20-year-old is able to register as an EU Serie A player because he holds four different passports.

He was born in New York and plays his international football for the United States, but he moved to Italy as a baby and stayed there until the age of 10 when he moved to England.

Therefore, Musah has citizenship in the United States, Italy, England and Ghana, where his family originates from.
