GdS: €26m Udinese midfielder on Milan’s wish list – Juventus play a key role

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are interested in signing Udinese star Rolando Mandragora this summer to reinforce their midfield, a report claims.

According to what La Gazzetta dello Sport are reporting on Sunday (via MilanLive), the 22-year-old has ended up on CEO Ivan Gazidis’ wish list ahead of the upcoming window.

The player is ready to return to Juventus who will exercise their counter-option and bring him back to the Allianz Stadium for a fee of €26million, but only if there is a pact with another club which would see him sold on.

With Lucas Biglia and Giacomo Bonaventura set to leave when their deals expire on June 30, plus doubts over the futures of Frank Kessie and Lucas Paquetá, it is expected that Milan will focus heavily on midfield investments this summer.

Italy international Mandragora could therefore become a concrete option for the Rossoneri and one firmly in line with the youth project that the ownership intend to carry out.

Regardless of whether he returns to Juventus or not he will be changing clubs this summer. The Friulians are already looking around to find a worthy replacement, with a €26m asking price set.
