AC Milan and Inter have been warned that they must pay a substantial fee to land Udinese star Rodrigo De Paul, a report claims.
The Rossoneri have been constantly linked with a move for De Paul since the summer, and calciomercato.com claimed back in September Milan will make an attempt to sign him in January, with Paolo Maldini having already expressed a desire to sign him during talks with his agent.
Former Juventus director Luciano Moggi dropped the biggest bombshell when – speaking to 7Gold (via MilanNews.it) – he stated that everything is practically in place for De Paul to join Milan in January.
Despite that, links seemed to go cold while speculation intensified that city rivals Inter are interested in the idea of bringing him in.
According to Calciomercato.com though, Udinese could choose to sacrifice De Paul during the January transfer window in order to raise funds, but they would only do so at the right price.
The outlet claims that the Friulian club evaluates their star playmaker at no less than €30m – a clear warning sign to Milan and Inter who are the two most interested clubs.
