AC Milan’s possible move for Antonio Rudiger has been thrown into doubts as it has been suggested the club cannot afford his wages.
Going into deadline day, Milan know they need a centre-back before the window closes at 20:00 CEST given that they currently have only two healthy players in that particular department.
A move for Ozan Kabak of Schalke is now off and a bid for Mohamed Simakan of Strasbourg has reportedly been rejected, so the name of Antonio Rudiger is once again swirling, with Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com reporting that Milan will make a new attempt for the former Roma star.
However, Gianluca Di Marzio has just spoken to Sky Sports in the UK and revealed his belief that it is unlikely Rudiger will move to the San Siro before the deadline.
He claims that the Rossoneri will not be able to or perhaps are not willing to pay his high salary, describing the move as ‘very very difficult’.
Di Marzio to Sky on Rudiger-Milan:
"No I dont think so, it’s a very difficult deal because Rudiger has a high salary, so it's very very difficult."
