Agent of Fiorentina star responds to rumours client could arrive at Milan in swap deal

By Oliver Fisher -

Michelangelo Minieri – the agent of Gaetano Castrovilli – has responded to the idea that his client could join AC Milan in a swap deal.

It was reported earlier in the week by MilanNews that Fiorentina are keen on a move for Rossoneri playmaker Lucas Paqueta, but that Milan will demand €28-30million so as not to record a loss on the balance sheet.

It was added that the Diavolo would like to include Castrovilli in the operation, a player very much appreciated by the club’s hierarchy, but La Viola are unlikely to accept due to the 23-year-old’s importance.

The 22-year-old dazzled during Fiorentina’s 3-1 win at San Siro against the Rossoneri earlier in the season. After the game, Castrovilli admitted his love for Milan, and the Rossoneri have actually been linked with a move to try and sign him since.

Now, his agent Minieri has spoken to il Corriere dello Sport and was quite clear on the future of his client, with his words transcribed by MilanLive and translated below.

“I don’t foresee anything, it’s a difficult moment. If there is a market, it will be a market with little money,” he said.

“It will mainly be based on intuitions and exchanges. Castrovilli obviously is not part of an exchange path, and he is fine in Florence.”

It has been reported that he would cost around €45m amid links with Juventus and Inter.
