The Rossoneri are clearly in the lead in the race to sign the young defender after their sporting director Frederic Massara travelled to Spain last week to meet with the player.
The club has reached an agreement in principle with the player for a €1 million per year deal. The main point of contention in this deal is Barca's insistence on the inclusion of a buy-back clause, which is something the Italian side does not agree to.
