Gianluca Di Marzio has offered an update on a number of key January transfer targets for AC Milan in his latest broadcast for Sky Italia.
The journalist was in the sky studios to discuss what next month might hold for the Rossoneri, with MilanNews.it taking down the key points.
ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC: At the moment the Swede’s response to Milan has not yet arrived, because there is still no agreement on the duration of the contract.
The 38-year-old wants 18 months while the Rossoneri are offering six plus the option for an extra 12 based on certain targets.
Napoli could be interested; Aurelio De Laurentiis has already made a phone call to Raiola, but right now Gennaro Gattuso wants to evaluate the squad.
GIACOMO BONAVENTURA: An official renewal offer has not yet been made to Bonaventura. The club, on several occasions, have expressed the importance of the 30-year-old, but for the moment Bonaventura has not yet been given a concrete proposal.
MARIO MANDZUKIC: The Juventus striker has several offers, and is even evaluating proposals from China and the USA.
In the past few days, Milan have had contacts with Juve regarding Mandzukic, but they are waiting for Ibrahimovic’s response and as such have not made any concrete negotiations for the Croatian.
MERIH DEMIRAL AND JEAN-CLEAR TOBIDO: Demiral remains Milan’s first choice reinforcement for the defence in January.
If Juventus opens up to a sale, it will be necessary to understand under what conditions, though they are likely to ask for €30-35million for an outright sale.
Milan are also evaluating Tobido, for whom Barcelona asks for a sum of around €25million.
