Milan have started to make their plans for next season and although they haven’t secured Champions League yet, Paolo Maldini knows what needs to be done. And it seems a swap deal could take place, a report claims.
According to Goal Italia, the Rossoneri are considering a swap deal with Juventus to get their hands on Federico Bernardeschi, while also solving the situation of Alessio Romagnoli. Both will expire in 2022 and a swap could be the right solution.
Milan are yet to reach an agreement with Mino Raiola on the renewal of the centre-back’s contract and the same goes for Juventus with Bernardeschi. Although the figures need to be analysed, the idea of a swap entices both clubs, at least that’s the feeling.
It should also be considered that Roma are entitled to 30% of whatever the Rossoneri get over €25m for Romagnoli, which could affect the structure of the deal. Having said that, they are not lacking reasons for the operation.
The Bianconeri would get a younger centre-back as Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini aren’t exactly getting any younger, while Milan would close a gap on the right flank. Furthermore, Raiola would surely be happy.
