Mediaset: Blow for Spurs, Man Utd as €38m Milan man performs U-turn on future

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek has decided to accept a reduced role at the club and will not leave this month, according to a report.

Reliable English outlet The Athletic claimed that Piatek is attracting interest from a number of clubs in England, including the likes of Manchester United, Spurs, Aston Villa, Newcastle and West Ham United.

The report added that Milan are demanding €38m, the same fee they paid Genoa a year ago, while Tuttosport added that Milan have set a deadline for Piatek’s departure of the end of the week.

According to the latest from SportMediaset – as cited by MilanLive.it – Piatek is expected to stay with AC Milan at least until June. The 24-year-old has accepted, certainly not favourably, his ‘relegation’ to a back-up role for the time being.

Ibrahimovic and Leao will be the starts in Serie A with Piatek the first reserve (and most likely starter in the Coppa Italia). The report even claims that Piatek rejected all proposals that arrived in January, even ones from the Premier League, as he would like to continue playing for Milan.
