Gazzetta Dello Sport is reporting that Milan shocked off their socks by their weekend defeat to Sampdoria is adding Man City hardman, Nigel De Jong to their roster. With Jack Rodwell brought over from Everton showing signs of promise in the backfield and freeing up Yaya Toure to rove ahead, Roberto Mancini can afford to let go the Dutchman who is in his last year of his contract.
The sticking point is the price with City demanding € 8m and Milan negotiating for less. However, it appears personal terms have been worked out. De Jong fits in with the less cultured style under Massimiliano Allegri. In midfield, the Dutchman gets to work with Kevin Prince Boateng and Antonio Nocerino.
