Marca: Milan in ‘advanced negotiations’ with Mendes over €10m Everton star

By Isak Möller -

As Hakan Calhanoglu decided not to renew his contract, joining city rivals Inter instead, Milan need to find a new playmaker. In addition to Brahim Diaz, they also have another Real Madrid-familiar name on their list. 

According to Marca, the Rossoneri are in ‘advanced negotiations’ with the agent of James Rodriguez, Jorge Mendes. The idea is to sign the Colombian as the replacement for Calhanoglu, deemed the right profile for the club.

The contacts between the parties are frequent and there is even a plan to convince Everton: a fee of €10m plus bonuses for the 29-year-old. In the next few days, negotiations will the English side will begin.

Reaching an agreement with them shouldn’t be a problem for Milan, as the report continues. It remains to be seen if confirmations will arrive from Italy on the matter, but it would certainly be an interesting signing for the Rossoneri.

  1. It’s the club’s biggest embarrassment to do something like that, they could have offered 5 million and Colhanoglu and signed for two years and that’s 10 million. James Rodriguez wants 10 million per season is it normal for Milan to pay. I think a journalist just writes fabrications

    1. Isn’t the 10m transfer fee instead Salary? Also Calhanoglu’s 5m salary is after tax … so it’s 10m per season

    1. James Rodríguez earns £140,000 per week, £7,280,000 per year playing for Everton as a M/AM (RLC)
      If you didn’t know now you’ll know how much Everton pays. James has already commented earlier that he wants a salary of at least 7.5 million a year wherever he plays. Milan will not pay for it !!! James is a bad player for me and for 4 million Milan can bring in young and promising players

  2. “Sign young and promising player” BS. Milan have enough young and promising player. All they need is leader and experienced player with champion mentality like ibra. Before Ibra came to revolutionize these kids mentality, they were only try to give their best not to win. For winning, you need more than just the best performance.
