AC Milan win race for Everton transfer target M'Baye Niang
Tuesday 28 August 2012
AC Milan claim to have won the race to sign French starlet M'Baye Niang,
with stories on their official website suggesting the highly-rated
17-year-old is poised to join them ahead of Everton.
Two separate articles on the Italians' official site made reference to the Caen striker, who has already represented France at under-21 level, saying he dined with vice-president Adriano Galliani last night and is set to undergo a medical today.
"Adriano Galliani flew into Milan last night and immediately went to a restaurant with new signing M'Baye Niang," read http://www.acmilan.com.
"Today he will have to pass his medical."
Everton have been heavily linked with Niang, but it appears that Milan have persuaded him to head to Italy.
Niang has been with Caen since he was 13, but only turned professional last season.
Milan also said Galliani had declined to make a move for Real Madrid midfielder Kaka - a former world player of the year during his time at the San Siro.
