GdS: Milan present first offer to Udinese for €40m-rated De Paul – Hauge included as counterpart

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are plotting a move for Udinese star Rodrigo De Paul which includes three possible counterparts, according to a report.

This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reports that the Rossoneri have a concrete interest in signing De Paul and have even presented a first offer to Udinese. The price set by the Pozzo family for the Argentine is €40m cash, but Milan plans to lower the economic outlay by including some young players in the deal, in addition to a cash adjustment.

At the top of the list is Jens Petter Hauge, but the Rossoneri are also thinking about Tommaso Pobega and Marco Brescianini as potential counterparts. The Udinese leadership have taken note of Milan’s interest in the 25-year-old playmaker, but have reserved the right to give an answer later. This is also because De Paul is also very popular with other clubs, including Juventus and Inter.

  1. The problem is that De Paul was worth as much as Hauge before & Hauge will be worth as much as De Paul later.

  2. I’ve wanted to comment on articles so many times before but miraculously have managed to hold my nerve thus far but upon reading another incredulous headline, my patience (I think many fans of Milan would agree comes with supporting this club) has now been broken and with that inevitably my silence. If Milan continue their trend of letting go of their young talents like Pobega and Hauge before they’ve even been given anything close to a fair chance in favour of redeeming players like Meite and keeping the likes of Castillejo (who has contributed absolutely nothing save for his work rate) they are destined to remain in mediocrity for another 10 years. The play it safe by continuing to rely on the “experienced” however inefficient and unproductive players that continue to provide next to nothing short of disappointment game in and game out and after not taking a risk by gambling on young players even after they’ve shown moments of promising potential only to have been rewarded with a spot to rot on the bench, Milan will continue to watch players like Aubameyang and more recently Andre Silva attain success with rival clubs and shouldn’t be surprised when they do so because I know us fans aren’t. When is enough enough, and is repeating the same mistakes that continue to hurt the club not insanity? I’m sorry for this pointless rant I’ve been avoiding but I think I speak for a lot of fans who choose to remain silent because they know their words only fall on deaf ears evidently over the last decade of hell. The fans deserve more than this, the clubs reputation deserves more than this.
