Yesterday, Italy’s daily sports newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport stated Matri would be flying to London for talks with West Ham with a medical to follow.
But the latest reports from Italy now put a question mark over Matri’s move, suggesting the player wants to now stay and fight for his place at Milan.
Matri is likely to find himself down the pecking order at the San Siro following the arrival of Mario Balotelli from Liverpool. Matri was loaned to Juventus last season. If true, it is the latest disappointment to hit the Irons after seeing a succession of deals collapse.
