AC Milan signs 14-year-old Mastour for 500,000 euros
Milan: Adriano Galliani has yet to confirm the deal, but the Serie A club`s vice-president insisted unnecessary pressure should not be piled on the young attacking midfielder.
AC Milan has paid over 500,000 euros for 14-year-old Hachim Mastour, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
The attacking midfielder is reported to have been brought to the Italian giant’s attention by former San Siro manager Arrigo Sacchi.
Although the move from Reggiana is not yet official, the Serie A side’s vice-president, Adriano Galliani, believes the youngster needs to mature in a pressure-free environment.
“Mastour seems to have great qualities, but let’s not put too much pressure on him,” Galliani went on record to say. “Mastour is 14 years old. He`s the future. But he’s still just a kid.”
If the reports are to be believed, AC Milan has beaten Barcelona, Real Madrid and Inter Milan to the youngster`s signature.
