Fabrizio Romano is reporting that AC Milan have found an agreement with Bordeaux over the transfer of midfielder Yacine Adli after weeks of negotiations. All reports did not exclude his arrival despite the signing of Bakayoko from Chelsea FC or any other transaction. The midfielder will sign a 5 year contract with the club as he will be the future of the midfield. He will remain on loan at his current club Bordeaux for the upcoming season given the existing depth at Milan and the lack of playing time available behind Franck Kessie, Ismael Bennacer, Sandro Tonali and Tiemoue Bakayoko. Milan will pay 10 million euros for the transfer of the midfielder including any bonuses, the deal is a permanent one.

Antonio Vitiello is reporting that Adli was in Milan yesterday to undergo his medicals and sign his contract before returning to Bordeaux. The young France international has been a regular starter for Bordeaux for a couple of seasons now at just 22 years old.
