just seen this flick up on SSN. Didn't know this had gone through - guessing he'll be a bit-part player to support Costa & Griezmann. 

Pre-empted the Vietto departure (if that's still going through?) but I'd have thought Correa would get more time over Kalinic...

Reportedly lots of red-flags and Milan fans were eager to get rid of him. If he can adapt to limited playing time and he brings some added value in terms of headers and pure 9 nine stuff... though... well... maybe the gamble makes sense (potential to improve what Gameiro brought to the table). I won't hold my breath, though.

Amazing these days teams apparently need to pay €15M up front for a reject.

Really odd signing. He was anonymous for most of last season, when Milan needed a striker to set up for them. 

Expected his next move to be downwards and not to a club with Atlético's aspirations.
