Milan could give up Pessina bonuses in order to secure Atalanta star

In addition to a playmaker, Milan also want to reinforce the squad with a new right-winger and several names have been mentioned. Josip Ilicic is one of them, as he wants to leave Atalanta. 

According to Tuttosport (via MilanLive), there are no advanced negotiations between Milan and Atalanta as the latter have set a price tag of €8m. This is considered too much by the Rossoneri, especially since Ilicic now is 33-years-old.

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are hoping that they can get a discount perhaps in mid-August. They could also propose a different solution to Atalanta: scrap the bonuses related to Matteo Pessina, plus a small compensation.

Pessina has made 59 appearances for Atalanta and as soon as he reaches 100, the 50% resale clause that Milan boast will be removed and the Bergamo side will have to pay €3m. To unlock the Ilicic deal, therefore, the Rossoneri could give up the €3m.
