GdS: Milan in no hurry to secure €30m Chelsea man as two alternatives emerge

By Isak Möller -

After securing the renewal of Ibrahimovic, as well as signing Brahim Diaz and Sandro Tonali, Milan are in no hurry on the market. They can now allow themselves to think and carry out negotiations with greater serenity.

As reported by today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport (via, the next goal is Tiemoue Bakayoko, but the path to the midfielder is far from clear. There is still work to be done to unlock the tricky negotiations with Chelsea.

The Stamford Bridge side want €30m for the buy-out option, which is a figure that Milan want to lower. Bakayoko has already agreed to a pay cut to rejoin the Rossoneri and would earn €3m per year, should the deal go through.

That being said, the negotiations continue. Calmly, but they are still alive. Meanwhile, two alternatives have emerged: Florentino Luis of Benfica Boubakary Soumare of Lille. Milan don’t want to be caught unprepared, that’s all.
