The negotiations have been in progress since January, with the Ligue 1 club refusing to make a sale during the mid-season window, but well aware they’d lose the centre-back in the summer.
Because the 22-year-old is Dutch and came up through the Ajax youth academy, there are reports in England that new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is trying to make a late bid for Botman.
It comes after months of Spurs and Newcastle pushing for the defender, who has a price-tag of €30m.
However, this evening Amazon Prime France and transfer expert Saber Desfarges are confident Botman should be heading towards San Siro to play for Milan next season.
The other important element the Rossoneri have over Manchester United is that they have qualified for the Champions League.
