AC Milan are not giving up on the signing of Marco Asensio and they are continuing with their attempts, according to a report.
Calciomercato.com reports that there was a wide gap between the first offer to the player and the request with regards to salary, but the Rossoneri are continuing to work on it and in recent days there was also a phone call from Paolo Maldini to Carlo Ancelotti to get approval to enter talks.
Real Madrid have offered Asensio an extension on his current deal which is expiring in 2023 but it is under the same conditions, including the same salary, while on the other hand Milan are negotiating with his new agent Jorge Mendes and could offer a salary not far from the €7m net per season requested by the Spaniard.
The current feeling is that if Asensio does not sign a renewal with Real Madrid, a proposal of around €30-35m euros could be enough to convince Los Blancos to sell. Milan are not giving up, and Paolo Maldini is at work.
