AC Milan have relaunched their attempts to sign Nikola Vlasic from CSKA Moscow and are hoping to be more successful this time, it is claimed.
There have been rumours recently suggesting that Vlasic is very much still a target for Milan. Russian portal euro-football.ru reported that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will again try to come to an agreement with CSKA for Vlasic who is a target admired by Stefano Pioli, but the Rossoneri are still reluctant to carry out a permanent transfer this summer.
They added that the club will try to convince CSKA to let the Croatian attacking midfielder leave on loan with an obligation to buy, with his market valuation currently around €30m, while La Gazetta dello Sport journalist Carlo Laudisa (via MilanNews) confirmed that Milan are still thinking of Vlasic as an option.
According to Calciomercato.com reporter Daniele Longo, Milan have held new talks over a deal for Vlasic as the Rossoneri management are determined to try again. They are hoping for that CSKA Moscow will have relaxed their stance a bit and although the negotiation remains complicated, Longo adds to ‘watch out for surprises’.
