Fussball: Milan lead Zirkzee race – why they are ahead of Man Utd

By Ben Dixon -

AC Milan are destined to sign a striker in the upcoming summer mercato, and a report has claimed that they are the favourites to sign their long-term number-one target. 

In recent months, Milan have been infatuated with Joshua Zirkzee and partnered with his good performances in the same period, their interest has only grown. However, the Dutchman has also piqued the interest of several other European heavyweights, such as Manchester United and Bayern Munich.

As a result, the Rossoneri had begun taking a greater interest in searching for alternatives if a deal became improbable, but the Bologna forward remained at the top of the list. Today, a report from Germany has suggested that the Zirkzee could be destined for Milano.

Fussball.news have reported that Milan are in a ‘pole position’ to sign Zirkzee because he feels at home in Serie A, making a move away from the league less appealing. The report continues, detailing that the move would cost in the region of €35 to €40 million, and whilst a move has not yet been decided, the Diavolo have a strong position currently.

Zirkzee has been a revelation for Bologna under Thiago Motta this season, and he has all the traits to improve Stefano Pioli’s side instantly, given his adaptability, technicality and goal-scoring threat.

    1. Gyokeres? Minimum bid must be 60m for that guy Imo. Lads looking good.

      If we can get Zirkzee for less than 40m I think it’s better we get him.

  1. 35 mill + 5 mill bonus seems correct as valuation. Higher than that, he’d get in the overhyped and overpriced range.

    A lot will depend on where Motta goes next year and whether M.U. or some other club overbids (e.g. if they offer 70mill to Bologna, they’ll not accept a lot less from other clubs)
