CM: Five summer signings planned as Milan eye €50m playmaker duo with same agent

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking to tie up deals a creative Argentine duo as they think about recruitment ahead of the summer window, a report claims.

According to Calciomercato.com reporter Daniele Longo, the Rossoneri leadership are now convinced that at least five new signings will be needed to improve the quality of the squad, and there are already several names on the Rossoneri shopping list.

One of these names is Matias Zaracho, an attacking midfielder or winger of Racing club in Argentine. Longo claims that Zvonomir Boban and Paolo Maldini are ready to put a €15million offer on the table to try and prize him away.

Not only Zaracho, but his compatriot De Paul could become a priority target for the Diavolo too. Interestingly, the aforementioned duo have the same agent – Agustin Jimenez – who has been spotted several times at Casa Milan, an unequivocal sign of how the talks are rather initiated.

For the 25-year-old midfielder, Udinese are asking for a figure close to €35million, especially given his excellent season this far.

What this does mean however is that De Paul is now ready to leave the Friulians and join a more ambitious club, and in case of a satisfactory offer the go-ahead for his sale would come.
