AC Milan have agreed the sale of two players to newly-promoted Spanish club Atletico Madrid.

Long-term Atletico target Javi Moreno and Argentinian defender Fabrizio Coloccini are expected in Madrid tomorrow to conclude their transfers.

Moreno was top scorer in the Spanish league last year with Alaves before an unsuccessful move to Milan but the bulk of the $18 million transfer fee being paid by Atletico is for centre back Coloccini. The highly rated 20 year old centre back became a regular with Milan last season and helped them into the Champions League.

Coloccini already stasted publicly that he wants to settle down in a team and isnt interested in moving from club to club, just as milan are planning for him. I think he would prefer a move because of the lack of faith milan seem to be showing in him.

Coloccini has agreed a contract with Atlético but a deal isn't completed yet. Problem is that Atlético and Milan reached a deal which includes both players. So if one doesn't agree the deal won't go through and they will have to negotiate again.

So far Moreno hasn't accepted Atlético's offer and wants to hold on to his €2 million salary he receives at Milan. But in Atlético they make themselve confident an agreement will be reached eventually.

As for the payment. Since Atlético doesn't have a lot of cash currently they've set up the following deal according to Spanish sources : Coloccini will go on loan to Atlético with an option to buy (+- 14 million ?). Ofcourse they will make use of that :tongue: and this makes they can afford him. As for Moreno, he would be bought, but in payments.

I really do not understand this. Javi Moreno did not have a good season, but why do AC Milan refuse to open their eyes and finally bring Fabricio Coloccini back to the club? He would certainly help to strengthen their shaky defense.

I think it's true. We have sold Javi Moreno to Atletico Madrid and Fabrizio Collocini is on loan to them, with the chance to buy him if they want.

Hoping is about all you can do with milan's management. I think they are still living in the glory days of the early nineties. Times have changed and a new generation of younger players should be brought in - sell costacurta,chamot,... the old guard and in with colo, coco and the new generation.

You lose colo to atletico and they have the option to buy before may31 next year. you could end up losing a future great - due to poor management decisions...

That´s true, especially because he stated he wanna settle down somewhere!
So I believe he has agreed with the Atletico board that they will take the buy option for sure!:tongue:

Stupid Milan!:rolleyes:
