CorSport: Gattuso’s Napoli aim for double raid on Milan this summer – their plans for Raiola

By Oliver Fisher -

Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso is eyeing a double raid on AC Milan this summer, a report claims, and they have hatched a plan concerning agent Mino Raiola.

That is according to il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanLive), who claim that the Partenopei could take advantage of all the various uncertainties that the Rossoneri are going through in order to sign two of Raiola’s clients on free transfer.

The duo in question are striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura, both of whom have deals which expire in June. Their renewals are a complex situation for the Rossoneri, given that Raiola is asking for reassurances and certainties before negotiating extensions for his clients.

Napoli have a plan too: they will try to convince Raiola with a double offer and thus prevent the agent from opening the door to Milan for their respective renewals.

For the Azzurri, Ibrahimovic would be a luxury alternative to the start Arkadiusz Mililk, something which is unlikely to appeal to the Swede even if he will turn 39 this year.

Bonaventura has not found much game time under Milan boss Stefano Pioli recently, and in Gattuso’s 4-3-3 he could play both as a midfielder and as a left winger.
