According to a report from Gazzetta Dello Sport via Football Italia, Barca defender Jean-Clair Todibo is closing in on a move to Milan.
They suggest that the two clubs have reached an agreement with each other, so all that remains is Milan and the Frenchman to agree on personal terms. They indicate that the agreement could happen this week. so it’s likely that he will be an AC Milan player early next month.
There’s no talk of any issues with the player wanting to move or what the transfer fee could be at this point, but that might come out once the deal is done.
