Malmo have blocked Chelsea’s move for centre-back and reported Milan target Anel Ahmedhodzic, according to the player’s father.
Born in 1999, the centre-back plays for Malmö who currently tops the Swedish league, Allsvenskan. He returned to the club in January after his experiences at Nottingham Forest and at Hobro in Denmark.
As reported by Calciomercato.com, Ahmedhodzic has ended up on the wish lists of Chelsea and Milan, who are monitoring his growth. They also reported that the player’s valuation is currently about €10m.
Last week, Expressen in Sweden claimed that Chelsea are interested in Ahmedhodzic and are willing to offer the player a five-year contract, with Milan and PSV Eindhoven also mentioned as interested.
However, according to Ahmedhodzic’s father Mirsad, Chelsea have been blocked from signing his son by agent Markus Rosenberg.
“He’s [Rosenberg] not doing his job. He has told Marina [Granovskaia] at Chelsea that Anel is not going there,” Mirsad Ahmedhodzic told Sportbladet (via TEAMtalk).
“He [Anel] wants to go abroad after the season finishes.”
In what could be a boost for Milan, the player’s father has confirmed that he wants Italian agent Fredrico Pastorello to broker a deal for his son.
“Markus hasn’t arranged this, he doesn’t have the contacts. I have tried to inform Markus that Pastorello wants to cooperate with him,” added Ahmedhodzic.
The story gets even better though, as Anel has accused his father of damaging his reputation by making such outspoken accusations.
“I can start by saying that I am very disappointed,” Ahmedhodzic told Kvallsposten.
“To write such things on social media and call other people idiots, not to support me. I have always felt a love for him. But I have not felt any support, he has not supported me in the right way.
“Especially not now when things are going so well for me.
“I focus on my matches and my football, nothing else. I try to be as humble as I can, I try to do everything in a positive way, I try to be mature in my answers and my thoughts.
“But as you can see. My dad’s not there. He writes various things, especially on Facebook.
“This is not the first time he has done so. He was also involved when I played in Nottingham Forest, he wrote in some forums there and it has always affected me negatively. I have always received criticism for it.”
