Di Marzio: Milan initiate talks with Roma over Florenzi – the formula proposed

By Isak Möller -

Milan are still looking for a right-back on the market and after failing to bring back Diogo Dalot from Man Utd, they have set their sights on Alessandro Florenzi. Negotiations have already begun, a report claims. 

The Italian international has returned from his loan spell at Paris Saint-Germain but isn’t part of Jose Mourinho’s project at Roma. Therefore, he’s set to leave the Giallorossi and Milan have initiated contacts, as per Gianluca Di Marzio.

The Rossoneri have asked for the player on loan with an option to buy, which would turn into an obligation if certain conditions are met (qualification for the Champions League and appearances made). An interesting formula, for sure.

Florenzi has welcomed the idea of joining Milan and only the green light from Roma is missing to make the deal happen. This comes after the Rossoneri failed to secure either of Dalot and Alvaro Odriozola for the right-back position.

    He can also play as right winger, right? No need to buy anyone anymore in that position if he joins us.

      Yes, he can theoretically play as an offensive winger too, but in the same way like Maignan would do for example. He lacks abilities for that, his strong sides are stamina and running straight next to line, but he´s terrible at one on one situations and also his crossing looks like from seria B. That was the reason why he was pulled back to the defensive line. As a Roma longtime fan, I don´t wanna see him in RW anymore, It was always a nightmare when he was picked up to play there in the past :-).

    I think this is a smart move: experienced, Italian, covers both right back and right wing. Low cost / high reward.

  3. Zymotix says:

    Base on experience and quality , he’s more competitive than calabria as well

  4. Savicevic says:

    Given the size of our budget, Florenzi is a good back up short term solution. And he can be a decent RW solution for games against low half Serie A teams. If it’s a loan formula with option to buy, it is splendid.
