Days have passed without any significant developments on the Renato Sanches front and AC Milan are waiting for an answer, a report claims.
According to Calciomercato.com, Sanches is currently remaining firm on his request for a €4.5m net per season salary, which is too much for Milan who have put forward €3.2m, but not for PSG who are providing competition.
However, Lille do not want to reinforce a competitor in France and have an offer of €15m from Milan whereas PSG’s bid is €10m. Jorge Mendes and his client are continuing to buy time while it seems that the Parisians are currently committed to making room in the squad by sorting destinations for Wijnaldum and Paredes.
Milan have waited months, but now Maldini and Massara seem impatient because the clock is ticking and a midfielder is needed. That is why Carney Chukwuemeka of Aston Villa is a name that the Rossoneri management are now looking at with more and more temptation.
The outlay to sign him would be more or less the same (around €10m) given the 18-year-old’s contract expires in a year. It could be a tactic to try and put pressure on Sanches and Mendes, but for now the Englishman seems to be the leading candidate.
