CM: Milan ready offer for €35m Udinese star; ‘definitive contacts’ soon

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have made an enquiry over Udinese midfielder Rodrigo De Paul as an alternative to Angel Correa, a report claims.

Milan’s chances of signing Correa could be over, as La Gazzetta dello Sport recently reported that the two sides ‘have never been so far apart’ in negotiations.

This is despite the fact that personal terms had been agreed with Correa on a five-year deal back in July, as we reported.

Sky Italia market expert Luca Marchetti (via MilanNews) suggested on Thursday night that Paolo Maldini and the rest of the leadership are now targeting Correa’s international team-mate Rodrigo De Paul.

Earlier in the month, a report from Calciomercato.com confirmed that Milan are interested in the Udinese star, who would cost €35-40m.

Now, the same outlet are stating that Milan have probed the ground with Udinese to see if a deal would be possible.

They claim that several teams are interested in De Paul, who would cost €35m, an amount which is not deemed too much by the Rossoneri.

Calciomercato go on to add that Milan’s opening offer is likely to be a two-year loan with option to buy, and in the next few hours there will be ‘definitive contacts’.
