AC Milan’s sensational summer spending spree looks set to continue as the Rossoneri look to acquire a world-class striker.
After the shock signing of Leonardo Bonucci from rivals Juventus on Friday, and the signing of Argentine midfielder Lucas Biglia from Lazio on Sunday, the Rossoneri have taken their summer spending to over €200million.
Now, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the next big name to arrive at the San Siro could be Spanish international striker Alvaro Morata.
The Italian paper states that Milan are ready to offer the 24-year-old striker a salary worth €10m-a-season which would make him the highest paid player in Serie A. The player’s representatives, Nelio Lucas and Juanma Lopez, are now ready to open negotiations with the Italian giants to try to finalise a move.
Chelsea also have interest in the Real Madrid star and despite the Premier League champions being prepared to offer €9m-a-season and Champions League football, it’s understood Morata prefers a move back to Italy than one to West London.
Milan are ready to table a €70m offer to Real as it appears the Spain international has once again jumped above Torino’s Andrea Belotti and Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the Diavolo’s priority list.
