Milan are seemingly very interested in the Udinese star Rodrigo De Paul, destined to join a bigger club this summer. However, a lot will inevitably depend on Hakan Calhanoglu, who is yet to decide on the renewal offer.
As reported by today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews), Milan and Atletico Madrid are very much intertwined on the market. Both are interested in De Paul and the Spanish side are now also probing the idea of signing Calhanoglu.
The combinations are many, therefore, as either of the sides are unlikely to end up with both players. Should Milan renew with Calhanoglu, for example, then Atletico would have a clear pathway to the signing of De Paul.
In the same way, Atletico moving for Calhanoglu could force Milan to accelerate talks with Udinese over De Paul. The upcoming weeks will be very interesting to follow, in other words, with the Euros set to play a role as well.
