AC Milan

AC Milan on their website have officially announced the permanent signing of Junior Messias from Crotone following his season long loan at the club. Messias joined on a paid loan worth about 2.6 millions euros and a buy option set at 5.4 million euros. It seems likely that the purchase amount was reduced slightly.

He has signed a two year deal with the club until the summer of 2024. The 31 year old will continue to play as a right winger competing with Alexis Saelemaekers and potentially a new signing.

There have been rumours that he will be loaned out to the likes of AC Monza in Serie A for the year with an option to buy.

He played 32 games across all competitions last season scoring 6 goals and providing 3 assists. He notably scored the winning goal in Milan’s only Champions League victory against Atletico Madrid in the group stages.
