Paolo Maldini is a great admirer of Nicolò Zaniolo and is moving personally to try and bring him to AC Milan before the window closes, a report claims.
This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) report that Maldini is convinced a move to Milan can help Zaniolo reach his full potential after a difficult spell with Roma due to injuries.
However, it will not be an easy task to bring him to the Rossoneri because while the player is pushing for the move, Roma are not lowering their demands for now and are not moving from their position.
The Giallorossi are asking for at least €30m in order to let him go, but the Diavolo on the other hand do not want to offer more than €18m plus bonuses as a permanent transfer fee. The parties are therefore rather distant on the evaluation, and there is no agreement on the formula either.
Roma want a permanent sale or at most on loan with a certain obligation to buy, while Milan are offering a loan with an obligation that depends on qualification for the Champions League and some targets the player must hit. In short, reaching an agreement will not be easy at all, also because time is running out.
