AC Milan have paid just over €400,000 for 14-year-old Hachim Mastour, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

The attacking midfielder is reported to have been brought to the Italian giants’ attention by former San Siro manager Arrigo Sacchi.

Although the move from Reggiana is not yet official, Serie A side’s vice-president, Adriano Galliani, believes the youngster needs to mature in a pressure-free environment.

Galliani went on record to say: “Mastour seems to have great qualities, but let’s not put too much pressure on him.”

“Mastour is 14 years old. He's the future. But he’s still just a kid.”

If the reports are to be believed, AC Milan have beaten Barcelona, Real Madrid and Inter Milan to the youngster's signature.
