Correa could leave – Simeone

Atletico Madrid
Angel Correa is set to sign for AC Milan.

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone says forward Angel Correa could leave the club this summer, handing AC Milan a transfer boost.

The Milan board have identified the 24-year-old as their main target this summer as they try to give new boss Marco Giampaolo some more firepower.

Correa has been at Atletico since 2014 and has since scored 20 goals in 130 appearances, although the majority of those have come off the bench.

Reports in Spain suggested Correa has agreed to move to the Italian giants but neither club have confirmed a fee has been agreed as of yet.

However, Simeone has refused to rule out a summer exit and admits he could now move on before the end of the summer deadline.

He told reporters: “We are open to everything that will come.

“Something always happens at the end of the market. Angel has been training tremendously since he arrived.”

Simeone already has Joao Felix, Diego Costa, Alvaro Morata and Nikola Kalinic on his books heading into the new season.
