Reason Behind Faivre’s Failed Negotiations with Milan Revealed

Milan’s pursuit of Romain Faivre never came into fruition, as the deal broke off on the final day of the summer transfer window. The last 48 hours of the transfer window saw negotiations for Faivre’s deal go from a high note to a complete fail.

According to Calciomercato (via MilanPosts), Milan offered €12m plus €3m in bonuses, to be paid in instalments. However, Ligue 1 side Brest wanted the Rossoneri to make a single one-off €15m payment, something Milan hesitated to do.

It has also been reported that the French player almost even boarded a private jet and was scheduled to fly to Milan, before Brest blocked his move.

He is set to stay in France for at least another half season as Milan may try to get him during the winter transfer market in January. The 23-year-old left midfielder is highly regarded by Milan’s top management and his contract with the Ligue 1 club expires in June 2025.

The France U21 player has a market value of €13m, according to transfermarkt.
