Jesus Corona

Milan target Nikola Vlasic of CSKA Moscow is now close to West Ham United, as the Rossoneri instead battle Sevilla for FC Porto for Jesus ‘Tecatito’ Corona.

Vlasic had been linked with a move to San Siro throughout the summer and was desperate to leave CSKA Moscow for the next stage of his career.

However, Milan would not meet the asking price of €30m, especially as the Russian club refused to allow a loan with option to buy and wanted the cash upfront.

According to, now Vlasic is very close to West Ham United, who are getting close to that price-tag of €30m.

Meanwhile,, Diario AS and Sportitalia among others note that Stefano Pioli’s men are instead in constant contact with Jesus Corona’s agents trying to strike a deal.

The 28-year-old Mexico international plays on the right side of midfield, but can also work in a more attacking role or even as a right-back.

His contract with FC Porto only runs to June 2022 and he left FC Twente in 2015 for €10.5m.

The asking price is believed to be circa €12m, but Milan face competition from Sevilla, as per Sky Sport Italia.

Last season, Jesus Corona contributed three goals and 13 assists in 48 competitive games for the club.

4 thought on “Milan drop Vlasic, fight Sevilla for Jesus Corona”
  1. Actually Corona is practically two footed. For Porto, he is as comfortable attacking from the left as well as the right. Very much a player in the Angel correa mould. He would definitely be an upgrade on samu and alexis, but we still need an attacking midfielder centrally.
    PS. If Corona was Argentine and not mexican, he would’ve made a big move earlier. Mexican players are always criminally underrated.

  2. If he is the one then we are doomed. He’s not the kind of player to lift us to new levels. SMH

    We need a top quality player (in the mould of Ziyech, Silva or at least Vlasic) or we better stay as we are imo.

  3. no other club let their quality player being loan with option to buy like milan did to every player they bought. big ambition with small budget.
