Italian giants AC Milan have agreed a deal to sign Parma defender Jose Mauri as the club revealed officially that the agreement has been reached.
Jose Mauri is yet to have a medical test for his proposed move to AC Milan. The medical will be taken today, as per the reports.
The 19-year-old Parma starlet played an exceptional game for Parma last term. He played the 35 games and also represented his country at the junior levels.
The teenager was also been targeted by several other top sides including Fiorentina.
The Serie A club have already sealed five deals. Carlos Bacca from Atletico Madrid, Simone Verdi from Torino, Rodrigo Ely from Avellino, Andrea Bertolacci from Roma and Luiz Adriano from Shakhtar Donetsk. Mauri will be becoming the sixth summer signing for the Italian side.
Mauri gave an interview for Sky Italia on reaching Milan that he is delighted with his move.
The medical has not been taken yet but the player is happy as he is going to complete his dream move.
“I'm emotional, we haven't done the medical yet, but Milan is a dream for me and I hope they will help me grow.”
The Argentine born player who also revealed that his idol is Javier Mascherano was eyed by AC Milan before his move to Parma few years ago.
