Complications continue to arise at Milan as the club could miss out on the signing of Argentinian defender Mateo Musacchio. This has looked like a done deal for some time now, however a lack of funds has left the Rossoneri unable to complete a transfer for the centre half.

The player is thought to be keen on a move to Milan, however he is reportedly willing to entertain offers from elsewhere if Milan are unable to stump up the required funds in order to complete the deal. This seems likely given that either the sale of the club must be completed, or alternatively a player (most probably Carlos Baccamust be sold in order for the club to so.

Whilst Milan have been linked with other names over the past couple of weeks, Musacchio is clearly the main focus of their efforts in the market and so losing him would be a big blow. The likes of Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the centre back and unlike Milan, would have no issues meeting Villarreal's demands.

This is turning into a bleak summer for the Rossoneri and things look likely to get worse before they start to get better. We can only hope for some clarity over the situation regarding the sale of the club and pray that there are still some players left to buy by the time the money finally becomes available.
