From Spain: Milan want to reinforce attacking department with €45m Serie A duo

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have two signings in mind from Serie A to reinforce their attacking department this summer, according to a report from Spain.

With four games still to go this season, Milan have no idea currently whether they will be able to count on the extra revenues that a Champions League return would bring, but they are still planning for the summer market ahead which could very well be the most important in years.

According to Spanish source Mundo Deportivo, Milan’s intention is to start the summer transfer campaign with two highly esteemed Serie A players as the first additions, two players who have already accumulated several seasons at the highest level in Italy. The names in question are Rodrigo de Paul, Udinese’s Argentine midfielder, and Josip Ilicic, Atalanta’s Slovenian forward.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) recently reported Milan’s interest in De Paul, who is valued at €40m, while il Corriere della Sera (via MilanLive) stated Milan want to pay €5m for Ilicic due to the player’s age.

    If this is true, i just say atthe end “young player project” is abandoned. We extended 40year old Ibra with 7mio p.a. Now illicic, and 40 for ‘Hand of Juve’ De Paul. Crazy!!we even always asked discount in every players last time.
    At this point I agree with greedy Raiola, that he has always doubt in milans project.

    I dont know why they keep running the illicic story. It has been confirmed early on that it wasn’t a legit rumour by Atalanta staff. And tbh it doesn’t even make sense to me due to his age, lack of pace and injuries.
    De Paul and I will say again is overrated, massively so. Would be a waste of 45 mil plus wages
