Cassano to pay out of his pocket to join Milan

Antonio Cassano is reportedly prepared to put his hand in his pocket and contribute some of the €5 million to allow his transfer to Milan to be completed.
Sampdoria are so keen to get rid of the perceived trouble-maker that they will sell him to Milan in the January transfer window for nothing. However, Cassano’s former club Real Madrid are due a sell-on clause of €5 million because the 28-year-old left Sampdoria before 2013.
This fee has been preventing his transfer to Milan, who claim that they will not pay the whole sum. It now seems that the player himself will contribute some of the fee.
Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has supposedly put forth a solution whereby the Rossoneri, Sampdoria and Cassano himself pay a third of the fee each. Sampdoria president Riccardo Garrone could agree to this solution because he wants to see Cassano punished.
The league’s arbitration panel ruled that the 28-year-old’s wages should be halved, but this will effectively be nullified because he will earn twice as much at Milan.
It is expected that as a gesture, Cassano will agree to contribute some of the fee. Real Madrid are entitled to the full €5 million within 15 days of Cassano agreeing a deal with Milan. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
