Luckily, Niang won’t be shown the exit door…
Milan and Everton have been unable to reach an agreement on striker M’Baye Niang, according to French sports daily L’Equipe.
The Rossoneri won the race for the 17-year-old in the summer, beating the Toffees to his signature by completing a permanent deal with Caen.
Milan paid Caen a basic €1.7 million for the troubled talent, with the potential for the final fee to be as high as €3 million. However, the forward has failed to impress in Italy so far and Milan were mooted to be looking to move him on in the January transfer window.
The English side once again have entered the scene and they have reportedly offered to take Niang on loan until the end of the campaign with a view to a permanent move.
But Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport claims that CEO Adriano Galliani has told Everton that they have no intention of selling the French forward in January and suggested Niang will be given more time in order to make an impact in the Serie A club.
