After having struck a deal with Lazio for both Biglia and Keita at €50m, the latter is now playing hardball as he remains uncertain on whether to accepts Milan’s offer or wait for Juventus.
Therefore, La Gazzetta Dello Sport reports that Milan have started to look at alternatives to Keita Balde, who remains firm on his will to join Juventus. GdS claims that Villarreal’s Nicola Sansone is being followed by the Rossoneri. Sansone played as a winger for Sassuolo before moving to La Liga in, where he scored eight goals and contributed to three goals this past season. Not a great season perhaps, but it would be interesting to see the pacey winger back in Serie A, where played fantastically during his spell with Sassuolo.
Moreover, Milan’s excellent relationship with Villarreal could help with lowering his price, which is said to be around €15-20m. The Rossoneri signed Mateo Musacchio of Villarreal just weeks ago, and should Keita not change his mind, then they could sign yet another player from the Spanish club soon.
