CM: Milan learn asking price for Barcelona starlet with €150m release clause

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have learned the price it will take to complete the signing of Jean-Clair Todibo from Barcelona, according to a report.

Monday’s edition of Catalan outlet Sport claimed that the Rossoneri are interested in the idea of signing the centre-back, with Paolo Maldini having even holding a meeting with Barcelona directors Eric Abidal and Ramon Planes on Friday in Milano.

The outlet added that an asking price of around €10m has been set and Barca want inclusion of a buy-back clause, with Bayer Leverkusen and Watford also interested.

However, according to an update from Calciomercato.com, Barcelona are ready to play hard ball by asking for a little bit more than the aforementioned figure.

They state that the Blaugrana will in fact request €12m to part with the 19-year-old, who joined on a free transfer from Toulouse back in July. Fichajes note that he has a €150m release clause built into his current deal.
