AC Milan look set to enter transfer negotiations with Russian Premier League side CSKA Moscow after it emerged the two clubs have different ideas for the transfer of Nikola Vlasic.

Milan would like to sign the Croatian international on loan for one year with the ability to purchase him the following summer whereas his current club, CSKA Moscow, would like to cash in on the player right now.

This type of dispute between buying and selling clubs is becoming extremely common this summer due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Buying clubs want to spread their expenditure, selling clubs want cash right now to improve their situation.

As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, the attacking midfielder would likely cost around €30 million. New contact between the two clubs are not expected until a couple of weeks’ time.

Vlasic made four appearances for Croatia at Euro 2020, scoring once against Scotland.
