AC Milan are preparing to make a bid for Juan Albin, but instead of meeting the €20 million buy-out clause in his Getafe contract they will offer Mathias Cardacio and Tabare Viudez in exchange.
The Italian giants are keen to sign the 22-year-old attacking midfielder and believe that they have come up with a plan that would satisfy all parties in the negotiations.
Getafe did include a €20m buy-out clause when they paid €3m for Albin in 2006 from Nacional, but while Los Azulones own 50 per cent of the player, his agent Daniel Fonseca owns the other half.
While the Uruguayan has settled at the Coliseum after a difficult first season, the lure of Milan would be too much for him to turn down and the move would be decided by the club.
In exchange for their Uruguayan playmaker, Getafe would receive two Uruguayans from Milan to bolster Michel's ranks for next term and they are mulling over the offer.
Cardacio is a 21-year-old midfielder who joined Milan from Nacional last summer, while Viudez is a Uruguay Under-20 striker who has made just one appearance for the Rossoneri since joining from Defensor Sporting last year.
