CM: Milan ‘in constant contact’ with agent of midfielder; €30m deal likely in June

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could revisit a move for Udinese star Rodrigo De Paul next summer but a January bid is unlikely, according to a report.

The Rossoneri have been heavily linked with a move for the Argentine over the last few months, and links have continued despite the fact he signed a new deal until June 2024 recently.

Calciomercato.com meanwhile reported in September Milan will make an attempt to sign De Paul in January, and that Paolo Maldini has already told his agent he is a huge fan.

They also added that the player is convinced that he is ready to try a new experience next summer at the latest, and former Juventus director Luciano Moggi claimed on Thursday that it is practically all agreed for De Paul to join Milan.

According to Calciomercato.com‘s Daniele Longo, contacts with the 25-year-old’s agent Agustin Jimenez have never stopped.

The outlet states that De Paul was considered as a potential alternative to Atletico Madrid’s Angel Correa in the summer, but his €35m asking price meant there wasn’t enough time to thrash out a deal.

However, Milan are still interested in the Argentine as he ‘combines technical qualities with physical strength’, but it is ‘difficult’ to imagine a serious bid being made in January.

In June though things can change as the player could ask Udinese for a reward for the loyalty shown in the last few years and finally have the opportunity to express himself at a more ambitious club.

The journalist concludes that his asking price is around €30million at present.
