AC Milan have seemingly set their sights on Roma star Nicolo Zaniolo to reinforce the right-wing ahead of next season. In order to get the player, however, they might have to sacrifice one of their own.
Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara, who are evaluating the situation, have no intention of satisfying Roma’s €65m demand. Instead, as was reported by Gazzetta Dello Sport this morning (via SempreMilan), they intend to include a technical counterpart.
It was first suggested that Alexis Saelemaekers could be the one to unlock the negotiations. However, Roma immediately said no to Milan’s proposal and that’s why the Rossoneri could consider offering Ante Rebic instead.
Maldini and Massara want the deal to be at around €25m plus the player, which is quite different from Roma’s stance. The next few days will be decisive to understand if a deal can be made, and which player would be included if so.
