From Spain: Milan to miss out with Juventus in very advanced negotiations over Chelsea man

By Oliver Fisher -

Juventus are closing in on the signing of rumoured AC Milan target Antonio Rudiger on loan from Chelsea, according to a report from Spain.

Milan were heavily linked with a move for Rudiger towards the end of the summer transfer window, and the management are expected to go back in for a new centre-back when the window reopens on January 4.

The Daily Mirror (via MilanNews) reported earlier this week that the decision of the London club is to sell Rudiger in January, and that Milan, Juventus and other clubs are interested in him, with an asking price of €15million set for the former Roma man.

According to Spanish outlet TF, Rüdiger does not enter into Frank Lampard’s plans and they hope to confirm his exit in the coming weeks, with Juventus in very advanced negotiations with Chelsea.

The German international would join on loan until the end of the season and there would be an option to buy for Juve, but the figures of the agreement are still unknown.
