French stopper cleared to link up early with Serie A side.
Valencia defender Adil Rami has been told that he can train with AC Milan for up to ten weeks before officially joining them during the January transfer window, Sky Sports reports.
The 27-year-old was suspended by Valencia for one week without pay earlier this month after publicly criticising his team-mates and coach Miroslav Dukic during a radio interview.
Rami did eventually apologise for his misbehaviour, but he stood by his claims that he would never play for the club again, an announcement which sparked a three way race between Inter, AC Milan and Napoli for his signature – a race that AC emerged victorious from.
They must wait until January 1 before they can call him theirs and allow him to feature in league and cup games, but they have been allowed to bring him on board to train with the squad before the turn of the year.
A statement published on Valencia’s official website read: “Valencia CF and AC Milan have reached full agreement for the transfer of Adil Rami to the Rossoneri in the upcoming winter transfer market.
“Rami, until the opening of the transfer window, has received permission from Valencia CF to train with AC Milan.
“The Italian club has an option to buy the France international.”
