CorSera: Milan have an unlikely ally as Lukaku encourages Chelsea forward to join Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have an unlikely ally in their attempts to sign Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea in Romelu Lukaku, according to a report.

According to Corriere della Sera (via TheNewsDept), Ziyech and Lukaku are very close as friends and while the Belgian looks set to rejoin Inter on loan, he is also a big advocate of the idea of them playing against each other in a Milan derby but living in the same city.

Ziyech is already willing to negotiate with Milan and is open to the move, but all parties need an agreement on everything starting with the salary issue, given the Moroccan currently earns €5.8m net per season. The Growth Decree and other potential bonuses mean the Rossoneri could come to an agreement.

The problem may have more to do with the transfer formula, though a loan with option to buy seems the most logical at the moment. The figure of the option to buy appears to be the real obstacle at the moment.

Maldini and Massara are working on it, relying on a really unusual ally in Lukaku, who would love to play a derby against a good friend.

  1. Milan is full of stories every window
    The new owner is talking about new stadium while good and great players are being snatched from our eyes
    Milan will be the one to discover the players but another club which has no idea of the players before Milan discovered them will be the one to buy
    It’s always the same story Same news January and June

      1. Turning a blind eye on the messed up situation we are in just cause “we are the current champions of italy” is stupid.
