Agent of midfielder with €120m clause fires warning amid Milan and Man Utd links

By Oliver Fisher -

The agent of AC Milan target Florentino Luis has warned that there are a lot of different clubs interested in signing his client this summer.

It is seemingly no mystery that the Rossoneri are in the market for a long-term partner to Ismael Bennacer in the engine room of the midfielder, and Florentino Luis has been persistently linked with a move to the San Siro since the winter transfer window.

It was reported earlier on Friday by La Gazzetta dello Sport that Milan are in talks over a deal for the 20-year-old, who has a €120m release clause but could be available for €40m.

According to MilanLive, in recent weeks there has also been talk of interest in Florentino from Manchester United, who already had contact with his agent Bruno Carvalho Santos in January.

Bayer Leverkusen and Real Betis have also been linked, and now Santos has spoken to ESPN about his client’s future, confirming that there are multiple teams in the running.

“He is one of the most highly rated young defensive midfielders in Europe, so there is currently a great interest in him,” he said.

“There has been a lot of talk about Milan, but I can tell you that there is a lot of competition to sign him. There are clubs in England, Germany and Spain that follow him closely.”
