FootMercato: Roma midfielder makes preference clear as Milan prepare official offer

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan are expected to sign a midfielder this summer to make up for the departure of Franck Kessie. Renato Sanches has been mentioned a ton but as those have cooled down, Jordan Veretout is now once again an option. 

The Frenchman, who currently plays for Roma, has been linked with a move to the Rossoneri ever since his Fiorentina days. He has ended up on their radar once again and it seems that the interest is serious.

According to FootMercato, Milan have informed Roma that they will soon table an official offer for Veretout. The 29-year-old has also ended up on Marseille’s wish list but as per the report, he would prefer a move to Milan this summer.

It remains to be seen if the report will be confirmed by Italian media as well, but it does make sense considering that the Sanches negotiation have seemingly died out. Milan still need a midfielder and Veretout might be the solution.

  1. l know your plane Mr maldini and masara you are just waisting our time,and you have to say it openly u don’t av money to spending this summer,despite change ownership with red bird,

        1. Deulofeu at RW won’t solve any issue since he Is right footed.
          If Pioli wants a right footed RW he would have played Rebic there

  2. Veretout loan swap for Bakayoko 🙂

    I still don’t understand what we’ll do with another midfielder if we don’t lose one of the current ones (we already have 5 + Bakayoko). The only explanations are that we’re either selling Bennacer or that Adli is not convincing right now in a midfield position and will be used only in AM.

    Considering that in midfield we lost only Kessie and we added 2 players (Pobega + Adli), I don’t see this big need to get another midfielder, at least looking at it from our management standpoint.

    1. Rotation and quality backup Bob.

      Veretout is not a bad option at all, he has plenty of experience, has played in Italy for many years and is quite versatile – and he probably won’t cost as much as Sanchez + since both Bennacer and Tonali are expected to be starters it is probably easier to bench Veretout than an entitled Sanchez, less headache for Pioli.

  3. 35m on CDK is a waste of money, that dude ain’t even the best player in his team….that 35m can get us a midfeilder (if bakayoko leaves), Theo alternative (if ballo toure leaves) and even sign belotti or berradi with it.

    That he is 21 and also a Belgium player doesn’t mean he is worth the hype, dude is 1,93 cm, slow on the ball and misses on big occasion…..nao lang is far better.

    We already have Adli and Diaz for AMF, even rebic or messias can play there.

    Our main weakness is RW, Adli already solved the AMF issues (dude can play ), our focus should be RW and if any of you think CDK will be amazing on RW then you don’t watch club brugge match.

    1. Amen to that brother. I keep saying the same thing. CDK is slightly better than avg is all. Just a prospect. If he was the next De bruyne.. he wouldn’t be anything less than 120mil in todays market.

      Leeds isn’t even a competition because Brugge knows CDK ain’t going there.. They are just using Leeds to get more form Milan. Offering anything higher than 30mil is gonna be a mistake.

  4. Delofue now in Napoli, we cant get him anymore.. better we go for chukwueze from villareal that will be the best option.

    1. You are right Mike, chukwueze is a good prospect but will Villarreal sell? His going to cost us a huge sum too.
