CM: Milan seriously tried to sign winger who is now an immovable €50m star for Barcelona

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan made a serious attempt to sign Pedri before he joined Barcelona when Boban was at the club, according to a report.

The 18-year-old has somewhat exploded onto the scene over the last few months as he has been given a change to show what he can do in Barcelona’s first team, having made 40 appearances across all competitions this season, amassing three goals and five assists and increasing his market value to €50m (as per Transfermarkt).

It was back in September 2019 that the Catalan side reached an agreement with Las Palmas for the transfer of Pedri, effective as of the following 1 July 2020, and the sporting director of Las Palmas – Rocco Maiorino – confirmed that Milan wanted the exciting talent at the time.

According to Calciomercato.com, Milan made a strong attempt to sign the 18-year-old Pedri back in the winter of 2019 when Boban was still the CFO. Indeed, the Croatian executive carried out the attempt personally, but then the teenager chose Barcelona and is now an immovable starter under Koeman.
