Il Tempo: Milan join Roma in race for Juve-bound midfielder

By Nikita Fesyukov -

Rolando Mandragora has been one of the protagonists for Udinese in the past two years and he is very likely going to leave the club in the transfer market and return to Juventus.

As reported by Il Tempo (via milanlive.it), the Bianconeri are expected to spend 26 million euros for the buyback clause in the player’s contract. But not to keep Mandragora, but to turn him to other shores in order to obtain a capital gain.

The Rome-based paper reports that in the last few days Roma and Juventus have been thinking about a swap deal involving Mandragora and Bryan Cristante for both clubs to generate major capital gains.

Now, however, the Giallorossi have a new competitor – AC Milan – who would like to sign the player for him to partner up with Ismael Bennacer in the middle of the field.

But the Rossoneri will have to make a significant economic effort, as Juve is asking for at least 30 million euros to sell Mandragora ahead of next season. A possible wide operation cannot be ruled out, with the likes of Paqueta and Calhanoglu potentially inserted in a deal.
