AC Milan have been offered the chance to seal a deal for Udinese star Rodrigo De Paul, according to a report.
The Rossoneri have been strongly linked with a move for De Paul in recent months, but the Argentine officially signed a new deal with Udinese until June 2024 earlier in the week.
Despite this, it was claimed by Calciomercato.com that the renewal was purely to send a message to interested clubs – which also includes Inter, Napoli, Roma and Fiorentina – that a discount will not be offered on his €35m asking price.
Now, Calciomercato have reiterated that the 25-year-old’s new deal is ‘certainly not a signature that binds his future’ to Udinese, and on the contrary he has been ‘proposed’ to Milan by his agent.
However, despite the previous reports regarding Maldini’s interest, Milan apparently consider themselves complete in that role with Hakan Calhanoglu and Lucas Paqueta.
Next summer though it could be an idea that is revisited because De Paul wants a different experience, and he could once again become a serious target for the Diavolo.
