CM: Why Milan are ‘unlikely’ to make move for Juventus centre-back

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ‘unlikely’ to make a January move for Juventus defender Daniele Rugani after learning his asking price, a report claims.

We reported on Monday that Milan’s owners Elliott Management are ready to invest and add more experience to the squad, and one of the areas they may target is the centre-back position.

La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by – recently reported that a lot will be placed upon Mattia Caldara’s return to the fold, and that a move for a defender could be on the cards if it does not go to plan.

The same paper then reported that Milan could target one of Juventus duo Daniele Rugani or Merih Demiral.

However, a new report from Calciomercato has claimed that the track for Rugani is now ‘cold’ as Milan have learned that Juventus will demand a fee of €40million.

For Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban – who have been criticised for their summer recruitment – that simply represents too big a risk for a player who has played just once in Serie A all season.
