Kevin Prince Boateng
The 23-year-old has already started training for Milan and has been given permission to play in friendlies despite not having yet sealed the deal between Genoa and Milan; which is set to be finalised by the end of the week.
It is an unusual deal which very rarely happens in football, nevertheless; it is a deal that sees all three parties involved win.
Genoa were seen to be following the central midfielder before his appearance at the World Cup, following his impressive display for his country the Grifoni signed him for eight million euros: a fee Milan could not beat due to player contracts.
Realising how desperate Milan were to sign Boateng, Genoa pounced at the opportunity and continued their good dealings with the rossoneri by loaning the ex-Portsmouth star out with an option to buy out his contract.
At the end of the day, should Milan finally choose to buy out Boateng Genoa would make a profit and Milan would have a bright young star at their disposal: both teams win.
This is the third deal to take place between the Grifoni and the Diavoli this summer alone as a good business friendship seems to have formed between Galliani and Preziosi.
Much is expected from the youngster as he now has to the opportunity to work his way into a team and have it mould around him. It certainly is an exciting week ahead as the deal will hopefully come to a close soon.
