Milan yet to contact Crotone for Messias amid Monza’s interest

Junior Messias’ future at Milan remains far from settled, with the Rossoneri management reportedly evaluating the situation with the utmost attention.

Journalist Daniele Longo claims that Milan have not made any contact with Crotone over the permanent signing of Junior Messias. Messias joined Milan on loan with an option to buy worth €5.5million, which Milan would like to reduce through negotiations.

In his first season for the Rossoneri, the left-footed Brazilian made 32 appearances in all competitions and racked up nine contributions, including six goals and three assists.

As things stand, the player is enjoying his holidays amid the uncertainty over his future. The report understands that the winger likes Stefano Pioli’s managerial style and would like to play for the Scudetto holders next season.

But Maldini and Massara intend to bring a right-winger with international qualities, giving birth to the prospect of Marco Asensio arriving at Milan his summer. Consequently, keeping Samu Castillejo, Alexis Saelemaekers, and Messias under one roof is considered unnecessary. 

Messias will thus have to wait for a few more days before knowing the full extent of his destiny at the Milan-based club. On the other hand, Monza are understood to be interested in the 31-year-old South American.
