Brest Issue Warning to Milan on Future of Long-Time Target

Milan have continued to keep tabs on Romain Faivre, but he will likely to stay at Brest in January. They almost signed him on deadline day, but they could not ultimately come to terms. The player publicly campaigned to join the Rossoneri in an interview.

It does not look like it will happen in the next window either. Sporting Director Grégoy Lorenzi spoke to L’Equipe about the attacker: “We are in no rush to sell him. We intend to finish the season together and then evaluate the offers. He has not told us he wants to leave. However, should we receive a proposal, we would examine it. But our priority is to assess his future next summer.”

Faivre is under contract until 2025, which gives his team plenty of leverage. According to, Milan tabled three offers last summer, but Brest rejected them all. The final one was €12M plus €3M add-ons. His price tag is now €15/20M, unless he continues to thrive and more teams join the race.

The 23-year-old is putting up strong numbers in Ligue 1 this season as well. He has scored 7 goals and provided 5 assists in 18 appearances so far. Milan do not appear to be in the hunt for an attacker in January. They might part ways with Samu Castillejo, but he has played little so far. Instead, they are focusing their efforts on signing a new defender to replace Simon Kjaer. They could consider adding a pure striker if they found one for cheap.
