As we reported here last week agent Bruno Carvalho was at Casa Milan and he represents young Benfica CDM Florentino Luis who AC Milan have been tracking. According to a Portuguese outlet Renoscenca via Sempre Milan, the Rossoneri have made an offer of an 18 month loan with an option to buy at 50 million euros. The player has a release clause of 120 million euros and has a contract until 2024.

A new update from Sempre Milan indicates that Milan are working hard to close this deal before the end of the current transfer window and may even make the deal a paid loan. Contacts for the player have reportedly intensified as Benfica are opting not for a loan but Milan are pressing hard regardless.
