Milan have been heavily linked with Rodrigo De Paul in the last week or so as Hakan Calhanoglu’s renewal hasn’t been signed. However, it’s not an easy operation and that’s mainly due to the price tag.
According to Corriere Dello Sport (via MilanNews), Udinese want to cash in €35-40m from the departure of De Paul. This is too much for Milan, who are evaluating different solutions to secure the services of the Argentine.
The Rossoneri could include one or two technical counterparts in the deal to lower the cash amount. Matteo Gabbia and Tommaso Pobega are two players that could be sacrificed, but it’s believed that Udinese want Jens Petter Hauge.
The Norwegian youngster didn’t play much towards the end of the season but it’s clear that he’s very talented. Therefore, even if it means getting De Paul, parting ways with him permanently would be far from ideal.
