AC Milan will not be able to get Spurs defender Serge Aurier for the fee they originally had in mind, according to a report.
Both Sky Italia and Calciomercato.com reporter Fabrizio Romano have reported that Serge Aurier is a target of the Milan management to reinforce the right side of the defence, with the ground having been probed over a deal.
Maldini revealed he has had talks with the player’s representatives in the past during his pre-match interview on Saturday night, and The Guardian confirmed on Monday night that negotiations are underway.
According to the Daily Mail though, Milan will have to pay more than the €15m they had in mind as Spurs will in fact demand €25m to let the 27-year-old depart in the summer window.
The Ivorian – who has made 83 appearances for Spurs across all competitions with 42 of those coming in 2019-20 – has just under two years left to run on his current deal.
The report adds that Milan are trying to negotiate a fee of around €13-14m, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will not sell for below what he deems to be a fair choice.
