Two days ago, Corriere dello Sport reported Wolverhampton Wanderers have ‘increased their pressing’ to sign Patrick Cutrone.
It was also explained the the AC Milan striker wasn’t keen on making a switch to Molineux, which made it difficult for Wolves to convince him to join them this summer.
Calciomercato claims the frontman, who travelled to the United States for Milan’s preseason tour, will now return to Italy.
Cutrone is courted by Nuno Espirito Santo’s side and his exit from the San Siro is ‘closer and closer’.
Super-agent Jorge Mendes has close ties with the English club and with his help, Wolves have been pressing for days to find an agreement with Milan for the player.
On his return to his homeland, the 21-year-old will discuss concretely with Wolves, about the plans they have for him. The report suggests only final details need to be fixed as his future is away from Milan.
Tutto Mercato Web also claims Cutrone will return to Italy to ‘close his transfer’ to the Premier League, with Wolves picked out as the likely destination. They will pay €18m plus bonuses to Milan for acquiring the attacker’s services.
It wouldn’t make sense for Cutrone to leave preseason training if his exit from Milan wasn’t at an advanced stage.
