CM: Uncertainty over future of key figure puts brakes on Milan’s €20m playmaker agreement

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan may not go through with the signing of Racing Club star Matias Zaracho this summer after all despite having the green light of the player.

The Rossoneri have been persistently linked with a move for Zaracho since last summer, the reliable Fabrizio Romano recently reported that the interest was very much mutual between the player and the club.

He actually claimed late last month that the playmaker has already given his approval regarding a move to Europe, and the Milan option has intrigued him for some time after having demonstrated his qualities in South America.

The idea of playing in Serie A is one that appeals greatly and his cost (€20m) would be fully in in line with Milan’s plans, but that the situation is on hold due to Coronavirus.

Now, Calciomercato.com have published another update on the situation which appears to throw doubt upon the deal.

The outlet reports that Paolo Maldini was the one who has carried out most of the talks up until this point and it is he in particular who is pressing to sign Zaracho, but given the uncertain future of the director everything is on hold.

It is of course still entirely possible that his replacement – should he leave – may also be keen on the 22-year-old, possibly a figure who focuses more on young players like Ralf Rangnick.
