Messaggero: Milan and Newcastle enquire about €20m-rated Roma centre-back

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are interested in signing Roger Ibanez from Roma this summer but they face competition from a familiar side, a report claims.

Il Messaggero (via MilanNews) report that Ibanez is among the players who could leave Roma in the coming weeks because the centre-back is not convinced by the idea of remaining with the Giallorossi into the new season, especially given the expressions of interest that have arrived.

Some enquiries have arrived from the Premier League, especially from Newcastle, while in Italy his profile is being evaluated by Milan who have been looking for a player in that position for some time. Roma are looking for around €20m in order to sell.

Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara met with Ibanez’s representatives Lodovico Spinosi and Stefano Mauri (together with the intermediary Carmelo Barillà) at Casa Milan last month, which could have been a precursor to a bid.
